Dinosaurs in Jurassic World Evolution 2 have unique traits, plus they also have their own needs. When breeding dinos in Jurassic World Evolution 2, much like its predecessor (Jurassic World Evolution) and its grandfather (Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis), each of the dinos has its own comfort level and environmental requirements.
As a park management simulator game, it’s crucial to maintain your dinos’ happiness level to keep them at bay, and if you fail to do so, they’ll go on a rampage, trying to break out from their enclosures which results in visitor casualties that’ll affect your park ratings.
If you want to avoid all of the possible dinosaur breakouts in your park, here’s how to increase your dinosaurs’ comfort to keep them happy in Jurassic World Evolution 2 as part of our Jurassic World Evolution 2 guide.
After you breed a new dinosaur in Jurassic World Evolution 2, you will need to take control of one of the Rangers from the Response Facility. After choosing a ranger team, you get to drive the iconic Jurassic World jeep. You need to drive towards one of the enclosures, enter the dinosaur pen and approach one of the dinos (if you have more than one) from a safe distance and scan them by using your binoculars by pressing [R] on your keyboard.
Take note you only need to scan one of the dinosaurs of the same breed to know what their habitat needs are.
After you examine and scan a dinosaur, you should get an information box that shows you the full breakdown of what a dinosaur requires in its habitat to increase their comfort levels. You have to click on the scanned dinosaur, then select the Cloud icon to see the Comfort tab which gives you details on the type of environment it needs to be comfortable.
Each dinosaur will have its own territory needs. This means if the kind of dinosaur breed requires a small enclosure or a big one to keep it comfortable and if the enclosure is overcrowded or not. Take a Tyrannosaurus Rex (T-Rex) as an example, this apex predator wants to roam around, wants to be the only one in the pen, and initiates hunts when you feed it with a goat which makes a big enclosure the best possible way to keep it happy. Another example is Carnotaurs, they need a medium-sized enclosure and another one of its own species to keep its social level high.
Another set of comfort levels aside from the territory needs are the environmental needs. You will know the type of ground these dinosaurs prefer, what kind of food they eat, and if it wants taller trees. A good example of this is the Brachiosaurus, they need grassy land and tons of tall trees to keep them feel right at home. You can change the enclosure’s environment by clicking on the Edit Environment button at the bottom of the notification window.
In the Edit Environment mode, you should see blue diamonds that detail all the dinosaur’s environment preferences. This should make it easier for you to adjust anything environment-wise to improve and increase your dinosaur’s comfort levels to keep them happy.
Keeping the dinosaurs happy by addressing any comfort issues in Jurassic World Evolution 2 is one of the crucial steps to keep your park ratings up.
