Planet Zoo’s Africa Pack is out and Replace 1.6 added webcams

Oh my goodness, these fennec foxes

On any given weekend, I’m one step away from burning just a few (okay greater than “just a few“) hours away with a recent, built-from-the-ground-up zoo in Planet Zoo. That feeling is even stronger when there are new DLCs and free updates that go hand in hand. At the moment, it’s the Planet Zoo: Africa Pack DLC and Replace 1.6 — they’re each out on Steam.

On the DLC front, it’s extra of the identical, not that gamers predict something completely different by now. For $10, the Africa Pack provides 5 new critters — the meerkat, southern white rhino, African penguin, fennec fox, and sacred scarab beetle — together with 180 items of themed surroundings, “from thatch and mudbrick, to rocky canyon getaways.”

What’s that? You’re going for extra of an anachronistic zoo theme? You do you!

The paid DLC additionally comes with a desert-based problem zoo, and Replace 1.6 has a free timed scenario with animals rescued from Guatemala. As an alternative of selecting and selecting what you need within the commerce middle, you’ll get shipments “on a timer,” so that you may be left scrambling if you happen to don’t have bodily house (or managerial bandwidth) to spare.

Highlights from the 1.6 patch notes:

  • Polar bears, grizzly bears, Formosan black bears, and solar bears can swim right down to deeper depths.
  • Settings like social welfare and water high quality deterioration at the moment are off by default in Sandbox mode.
  • Webcams could be positioned in habitats, and there’s a night-vision choice, too. You’ll want an influence provide, although.
  • You possibly can handle crowd congestion by creating Vista Factors that act like customized focal factors for particular buildings, surroundings, enrichment gadgets, or habitats.
  • Animal storage areas elevated from 50 to 200.
  • The power to set costs by quantity reasonably than a slider.
  • You possibly can add your individual customized sounds and music to all in-game audio system

If wanted, try the complete 1.6 breakdown on Reddit.

Additionally, to the Planet Zoo participant who preemptively constructed a fennec fox enclosure nine months ago, I hope you’re dwelling it up. I’m nonetheless reeling from the cuteness.
