Jurassic World Evolution 2 Cheats and Tips
Delegate tasks and speed up time to avoid doing everything yourself
You wouldn’t be the first to overlook the fact that you don’t have to do everything manually in Jurassic World Evolution 2. Instead of tranquillizing dinosaurs and checking their welfare by yourself, you can task the capture teams and rangers teams to do so for you. Just click a unit, click ‘assign task’, and then left-click on the right location.
You can also place Ranger Posts inside the dinosaur habitats and assign a Ranger Team to that post. This will ensure regular check-ups. The only downside to delegating these tasks is that your cars may get destroyed from time to time, but that’s probably a risk you’re willing to take.
After assigning tasks, you can speed up time in the lower right corner of your screen. Especially when starting a new game, you don’t want to sit around waiting for your first dinosaurs to arrive.
Research your dinosaurs’ needs and keep them happy to stop them escaping
This sound terribly unsafe, but the starter fences aren’t actually able to keep an angry dinosaur inside. If you capture a dinosaur and put it in an empty facility (without food, water, etc.), it will become unhappy, break out, and eat your visitors.
It’s therefore very important to research the dinosaurs’ needs as quickly as possible. Scan them with the Ranger Team to find out what kind of habitat they want, and then provide it. Besides finding the correct food and habitat types, do not underestimate the importance of territory size either. Dino’s are big, so give them enough space.
How to choose scientists in Jurassic World Evolution
Actions such as getting new dinosaurs and treating illnesses require the help of scientists. Scientists have three different stats: logistics, genetics, and welfare. When hiring your first three scientists, keep the following in mind:
- Get a specialized scientist for each of the three skill types.
- Consider their salary. Some are only slightly less skilled than others, but much cheaper.
- Consider their character traits. An altruistic scientist will require less money, for example.
- Don’t just look at the scientist’s current skill level, but also at their potential. If you see a logistics stat of 2/8 for example, the potential (8) is quite high, even though the current skill level (2) is still low. You may reach this potential through training.
Jurassic World Evolution 2 has this (slightly odd) feature that may cause your Scientists to sabotage the park when they get disgruntled. You probably don’t want them to set the Velociraptors on your visitors, so let the scientists rest in the Staff Center from time to time. You can find a ‘Sabotage Meter’ (measuring the current risk) in the lower right corner of the screen.
Get an emergency shelter
To be entirely honest, it’s very hard to keep your visitors from getting eaten by a T-Rex. Even with strong fences, happy dinosaurs, and happy scientists, your enclosures may get destroyed by storms.
As casualties result in low safety ratings for your Jurassic Park, you should always build an emergency shelter. Make sure it’s located somewhere central, and it will limit your reputation damage.
