Improved Egg Incubator

In 1 collection by Shinygati

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

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 2 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 less than what is set, 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 value will not be saved.

The SuperStructure Egg Incubator that i used is nice, but miss some feature.

I wanted to tried your version but it seems that i can't found how to automatically send eggs to the Egg Incubator.

The SS Hatchery sends the eggs automatically to the SS Egg Incubator, but it doesn't work on your version of Egg Incubator.

I would be gladly interested if you had any tips on how to sends eggs automatically.

@Shinygati Thank you for the response. Appreciate the info.

@acethewd Unfortunately i cannot add support for the omni tool as i have to set up eggs to be destroyed from the player inventory when attempting to transfer rather than having the incubator destroy after it's placed inside, i had to set it up this way because it was causing crashes and visual issues with eggs displaying that they are placed in the incubator slots even after being destroyed and i could never properly fix those issues.

Love this mod. Couple of suggestions:

1. Ability to hide the power cord. Cord shoots straight out to the nearest power box and one of my dinos has the cord running straight through its head. Have to think that doesn't feel great.

2. I use the Omni Tool from the Structures Plus (S+) mod (Mod ID: 731604991) which lets me setup the ability to move fertilized eggs from my inventory into the incubator. But sadly, the auto egg destroy doesn't work when I do it this way. They just fill up the incubator. I have to go to the incubator, remove the eggs and then add them manually back to the incubator to get the egg destroy to kick in. Hoping these two features can work together.

Even without any changes, this mod is saving me a bunch of time with my Rex farming. Thanks again.

How to disable snaping ?

Great mod. I get how it works now. Only thing that could make it better is if you added a 'level' option to the auto destroy options and extra values.

@berkx45 what do you mean by energy? if you're asking about power it gets it from normal means such as a power generator or tek gen.

love the new update.
do you have any plans to do it in the opposite direction.
example I want the high melee, but the low speed.
it would have helped a lot when mixing the different tamed dinos to make the perfect pair

@Hellomoicbobby That would be quite a bit of work, it's easy to increase the slots but there's a lot more to do to make all of those extra slots fully functional which may even require remodelling the incubator itself to even see them.
