I'm so Happy
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 6th Sep 2012
Enrichment items and happiness are operationable! Attach an item to an enclosure, and from there you'll notice that you can press the "Play" button. Each item will entertain up to 10 dinosaurs per use, if their happiness is below 100%. When played with, the dinosaurs have a chance of getting a stat boost - though just what kind depends on the type of item, of course. ;D

Happiness decreases at a daily rate of 10%, the same as hunger, and only starts negatively affecting dinosaurs if it sits at 0% and remains there. Unfortunately, depressed dinosaurs like that will start doing self-destructive things like plucking their own feathers or scales, and will start losing 10% health daily. Luckily, playing with an enrichment item boosts them straight back up to 100%!

I'll be bug smooshing tomorrow and adding in some more new page designs. Also, give a ton of love to the mods, who are currently working on some helpful descriptions for the upcoming item library!

This looks so cool!
Though I think an optional option would be a good idea for those of us who wont have extra time to play with their Dino's. Or maybe have an option where it can be set to automatically play with your dino's.

Happiness only goes down 10% a day and you only need to play once to get it to 100% again no matter how low it is. I'm sure people will be able to spread out playing with their dinosaurs in their enclosures over several days rather easily without any consequences myself. :o!

Figures, I go to buy some enrichment items, and the store is totally empty. Bawwww.

Guess now everybody's buying them...

Eee I've been looking forward to happiness being in effect! Very nice that one play boosts them right back to 100%, makes it easy for everyone to keep their dinosaurs happy and not have to spend lots on the items :D

Now I can dig out that cluster of cones in my storage that Herbal spammed me one time because I love orange 8I

Do the stat boosts show up on the green banner if they get them? :>

Is there gonna be some kind of scale shop item that will play with all the dinosaurs in an enclosure? Like the pooper scooper, or the train all, NPC battle, and quicker trial..

Though I wish some items would have a longer endurance...
