Dinosaur breeding has been introduced to ARK: Survival Evolved in patch v219. This means that it is now possible to breed your own dinosaurs with their own stats. These stats are based on those of the parent that, with some selective breeding and a lot of time, could result in dinosaurs with very high base stats. For more information on dino breeding, please check out this post that explains it in more detail. The stats of the baby dinos have some randomness involved, which makes it hard to predict the outcome of your breeding.
Currently we have a small calculator available that at least shows you the minimum and maximum stats your baby will possibly get. Whenever the new devkit comes around with information on the breeding in it, we will add even more to the calculator to help you guys as much as possible in breeding that ultimate dino!
In the calculator you can choose a dinosaur and it will fill in the base stats corresponding to that species. Then you can adjust those stats to correspond to your tamed dinos. Make sure you fill in the post-tame stats (these are the stats your dino has just after it was tamed), as the values of the baby are based on those (except level, we will add something for that in the near future). After you’ve filled in the post-tame stats of both parent, you can click on “Calculate baby stats” to calculate the possible results. The calculator will show you the two extremes for the baby: one that got the ‘worst’ stats, and one that got the best stats from both parents. Mostly you will end up somewhere in between, but at least you will get an idea how far you were away from that perfect baby dino.
