Baby Premium Care

Description
This mod adds 3 consumables which, when fed to baby dinos, will give you 100% imprint and will make the baby grow twice as fast by default.
The extra growth rate is editable in config, visit this link to see how.

You cannot consume any of the items as a player or force feed to an adult dino. You must `use`(press E key) to feed this to a baby, they will not eat it by themselves. A baby can only be fed the item once, so the growth multiplier cannot be stacked. If you want them to grow faster, edit the age multiplier in config.
The imprinting mechanic remains unchanged. Feeding the item to a baby will not change it's owner. Dinos will not lose imprint affinity after use, even if you do not cuddle them anymore.

The Premium Care Kibbles will not work on *vanilla* wyverns and Premium Care Milk will not work on dinos.
None of the items have a spoil time (might change in the future, haven't decided yet).

Update: For people using Classic flyers mod, wyverns that are hatched while Classic Flyers is installed will only accept the kibble, because the author of Classic flyers changed the core Wyvern class.

This is a clean mod. Scorched Earth DLC is NOT required.

Is there a spawn command for this?

Was having so much trouble getting this going on our server. Turns out, if you cryo a baby and toss it out, you have to fed it another kibble because it starts maturing at the default speed again. Other than that (which is no issue) works good so far! Thank you.

(Make sure, when you're changing the recipe you DO NOT put any extra spaces or enters in the code. Make sure it is one giant, long piece of code.)

Quick question, if I use the SE kibble on a non SE dino (Such as a Tropeognathus) will that negatively affect anything or will it do the same thing that the normal premium care kibble does?

@Dex thank you for your feedback, very constructive. The same effort would have been better spent changing the crafting recipe.

Ridiculous crafting recipe. What a completely useless mod.

Plans to make this work with the new Crystal Wyverns?

@Sponge Man I've got the same problem, I'm pretty sure I'm following the instructions correctly, but no change.

I agree with one of every kibble and a cake.

Got a question for anyone interested.
If I were to update the mod and change the default recipe, what would you like it to be?
