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

Going DiggingEdit

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

With your Iron Pickaxe (or better), find Fossil blocks. These blocks can be found in around the same layer as coal/iron. One 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 PermafrostEdit

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 FossilsEdit

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 DNAEdit

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-FossilsEdit

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

Possible Outputs for Plant FossilsEdit

Possible Outputs for Frozen MeatEdit

Possible Outputs for Tar DropsEdit

Possible Outputs for Tar FossilsEdit

Creating Eggs/SeedsEdit

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.
