Wildlife Spawner Devices

You can use this to spawn animals that players can tame or hunt.

The Wildlife Spawner can be customized to spawn animals on your Island. Players can hunt and kill the Prey animals (Chicken, Boar), which will drop resources (such as Meat) when they are eliminated.

Animals you can spawn using this device include:

  • Frog

  • Chicken (Prey)

  • Boar (Prey)

  • Wolf (Predator)

  • Raptor (Predator)

Some animals spawned by this device can be tamed by players. To tame these animals, players must use Bait. Different animals require different Bait, which is made from resources dropped by animals that are eliminated. Bait required:

  • Boars require Shield Mushrooms; Shield Mushrooms are dropped by Boars.

  • Wolves and Raptors require Meat; Meat is dropped by Chicken and Boars.

Tamed animals will follow the player, and some will attack other players and animals that are hostile to the taming player.

There is a limit to the total number of active spawned animals you can have on your island. The maximum number of spawned animals across all devices is 20.

Channels

When one device needs to "talk" to another device, it does so by transmitting a signal on a specific channel . The receiving device needs to be set up to receive the signal on the same channel.

A channel is identified by a number, and channel numbers are customized for a device under the option that uses the channel. Most devices will also pass the identity of the player who triggered the device with the signal.

This device has receivers that perform a variety of functions when receiving a signal over a channel. Also, this device can transmit signals when certain conditions are met.

Receivers

Receivers listen for a channel and perform an action when they hear any device (including themselves) send a signal on that channel.
