This tutorial shows you how to make prehistoric creatures/plants.

Going Digging[edit | edit source]

Once you have an Iron Pickaxe, the first thing you need to do to get a prehistoric creature or plant in your world is to obtain either a Bio-Fossil, Plant Fossil, or a Tar Fossil.

Obtaining Bio-Fossils and Plant Fossils[edit | edit source]

With your Iron Pickaxe (or better), find Fossil blocks. These blocks can be found in around the same layer as coal/iron. once you mine these things, you may get the following:

Note that the Fortune enchantment doesn't work on the Fossil block. To increase the chance of finding fossils, the Paleontology enchantment is needed.

Obtaining Permafrost[edit | edit source]

Permafrost can be found deep underground. Unlike fossil blocks, you do not need any kind of tool to break Permafrost, which will drop:

  • Fern Seeds
  • Frozen Meat
  • Bone
  • Book
  • Skull

Keep the Frozen Meat, which is used to produce prehistoric creatures.

Obtaining Tar Fossils[edit | edit source]

Tar Drops can be found near Tar Pits by killing the nearby Tar Slime or by collecting the tar with a bucket.

Once you collected a bucket of tar, place it anywhere on the crafting area of your inventory. You should get 4 Tar Drops from this, which can be placed in an Analyzer to have a chance to produce Tar Fossils.

Obtaining DNA[edit | edit source]

Once you have obtained that creature's/plant's DNA, you should dump it in an Analyzer. If you don't have one yet, the crafting recipe is below

Open its menu. On the left side, there's the input. On the right side, there's the output. Place the Bio-Fossils/Plant Fossils/Frozen Meat/Tar Drops in the input. The output depends on what you put in the input

Possible Outputs for Bio-Fossils[edit | edit source]

  • DNA of any Mesozoic/Palaeozoic creature
  • Sand
  • Bonemeal
  • Cactus Green
  • Nothing

Possible Outputs for Plant Fossils[edit | edit source]

Possible Outputs for Frozen Meat[edit | edit source]

Possible Outputs for Tar Drops[edit | edit source]

Possible Outputs for Tar Fossils[edit | edit source]

Creating Eggs/Seeds[edit | edit source]

After you get the DNA of any prehistoric creature, put the DNA in a Culture Vat with Bio-Goo, and wait for the Culture Vat to finish. This will produce an egg, embryo or seed.
