Improved Egg Incubator

Description
This is a better and improved egg incubator that adds new features such as automatic temperature controls, destroy all eggs and more.

Can be crafted in the Fabricator, Tek Replicator or Exo Mek.

-The incubator can be snapped to foundations and ceilings.
-Has a destroy all eggs option.
-Has automatic temperature controls to the incubator (disabled by default).
-Has gestation monitoring.
-Has a gestation speed boost option for nearby female gestation dino's (can be toggled).
-Has a Destroy Eggs List feature that can auto destroy eggs of a specified gender or even stats.

Note: Automatic temperature controls only effectively works with one egg group at a time, for example if you have a mix of both raptor and rex eggs it will choose either only the raptor that gets the boost or the rex and never both at the same time.

INI Options
[ImprovedEggIncubator]
BonusHatchRates=True
BonusGestation=True
BonusHatchSpeed=1.2
GestationSpeed=3
ExpFromEggs=True

BonusHatchRates when set to True (enabled by default) will allow giga or quetzal eggs to incubate faster, this does not affect any other egg groups.

BonusGestation when set to True will scan for nearby female dino's that use gestation breeding and speed up the timer for giving birth to babies.

BonusHatchSpeed affects the temperature bonus incubation speed and can be changed to any number (default 1.2) please note this will multiply based on your game/server egg hatch speed settings, for example if your server has an egg hatch speed setting of 10 and you set this number to 4.0 in the config then the temperature bonus will change your egg hatch speed value to 40 so it is highly recommended that you use decimal numbers for the multiplier.

GestationSpeed this is used with the above "BonusGestation" config that affects how fast females will give birth to babies.

ExpFromEggs is enabled by default which grants the player experience points when they use any of the destroy egg options, this does not work with eggs that are automatically destroyed from using the filters.

Destroy Eggs List Instructions
A new feature has been added that allows the incubator to automatically destroy eggs of undesirable gender or stats when placed inside, in order to use this feature you have to click on the destroy eggs list option from the radial wheel and select a gender or stat that you want to be destroyed when placed inside, for stats this will let you destroy anything that is lower than what it's set to, in order to set this value you have to go into "extra options" and select "adjust egg values" this will let you change the value for each stat but remember to click on the confirm button at the top or else the values will not be saved.

The egg isn't destroying eggs that are female. And I can't understand the one that destroys eggs with stats numbers. My rexes have 46 points into melee so I set it to 46. It destroyed a few that had 46 and didn't on others, the others did not have mutations or stat increases. They were still also female. Is this a bug?

@Zoupi Sounds like you had egg filtering enabled or they were about to spoil. I've never encountered or seen any reports of that and this mod hasn't been updated since the last ase patch so nothing should have changed.

I wanted to transfer my eggs in the incubator and they have litterally despawn, i have lost 8 sipnosaur egg and 2 trex eggs and 1 argentavis egg.....

If the status info tooltip says yes for you with the middle picture of the bear... the one where you can see exactly how much grag the egg can best be hatched at and you can also see what color it is and what it is for has values.....I can't see this

@Aivlys24 I still can't see any problems with this, are you talking about the tool tip that shows the egg stats etc? this should appear until an egg is ready to hatch.

I play in single player mode
Shinygati  [author] Feb 25 @ 9:46pm 
@Aivlys24 are you on singleplayer or a server? last i checked everything was all working fine and hasn't been updated in a while so nothing should have broke.

the whole thing again in English.
During the first pregnancy and the first egg hatching I can still read the status information, after that I can no longer find the status information because it no longer appears.....which I can't understand because I haven't made any settings changes, it's just a mistake for me or a bug in general

bei der ersten Schwangerschaft und erstes ei ausbrüten kann ich noch die Statusinfo ablesen, danach kann ich die Statusinfo nicht mehr finden da sie nicht mehr auftaucht.....was ich nicht nachvollziehen kann da ich keine Einstellungsänderung vorgenommen habe, ist das nur ein fehler bei mir oder ein Bug allgemein

@Mendes this is only for certain eggs and an issue i'm aware of.
