Jurassic World Evolution 2 Beginner Tips and Tricks
Listed below are several Beginner Tips and Tricks which will help you in Jurassic World Evolution 2.Choose your Game Mode
There are four different game modes in Jurassic World Evolution 2, these are:
- Campaign Mode: This is the main story of the game. In Campaign mode you will visit several Jurassic Parks and be tasked with fixing issues such as broken fences and illnesses.
- Chaos Theory Mode: This is another story mode. Chaos Theory mode focuses on scenarios from the movies.
- Challenge Mode: You are challenged with creating the best Jurassic Parks as quickly as possible.
- Sandbox Mode: This is a creative mode. Most of the locations and facilities in Sandbox mode are locked until you research them in the story modes or Challenge mode.
It is recommended that you begin Jurassic World Evolution 2 with Campaign mode, the beginning of which acts as a tutorial that talks you through the basics of capturing dinosaurs and building your Jurassic Park. Campaign mode will also enable you to unlock many of the facilities that you can later use in Sandbox mode.Delegate Tasks
Make sure you delegate tasks rather than try to do everything yourself manually in Jurassic World Evolution 2. This means that you task capture teams and ranger teams to tranquilize dinosaurs and check on their welfare. You can ensure regular check-ups by placing Ranger Posts inside dinosaur habitats and then assigning a Ranger Team to that post. After you have assigned tasks, you can speed up time in the lower left corner of your screen.Research your Dinosaurs
It is essential that you research your dinosaurs' needs, so you are able to keep them happy and to stop them from trying to escape. The starter fences in Jurassic World Evolution are not strong enough to contain an angry dinosaur, so make sure they have adequate food, water and whatever else they may need to keep them calm.Connect Every Dinosaur Enclosure to a Power Facility
Regardless of how happy and content your dinosaurs, there is always the risk of them escaping if the power supply fails which means it is crucial that every enclosure is connected to a power facility. You will find the 'Backup Generator' under the 'Power' tab, before placing it check the large yellow circle which indicates the facilities range. It is not necessary to place all your fences next to the generator, providing one part of the dinosaur enclosure is located within the yellow circle, all the connected fence will also be powered. Don't forget to periodically check the fuel supply, as this needs to be refilled manually.How to Choose Scientists
In Jurassic World Evolution you will be able to choose the scientists you employ at your Jurassic Park, each scientist will have three different stats: genetics, logistics, and welfare. Make sure that the first three scientists you choose specialize in one of these skill types. When hiring scientists, it is important that you take into account their salary, character traits, and potential, not just their current skill level.Prevent Sabotages
Always keep an eye on the 'Sabotage Meter' in the lower right of the screen, which measures the current risk of one of your scientists sabotaging your Jurassic Park if they become disgruntled. Let your scientists rest in the Staff Center from time to time to prevent this from happening.Relocate Buildings
If you are not happy where you placed a viewing gallery, or it is causing you logistical problems, you can always change its location at an additional cost by clicking on it, clicking the three dots, and selecting 'Relocate'.Deactivate Buildings
If you have a facility that is not currently useful, there is no need to destroy it. If you click on the building then the three dots, and select 'Deactivate' it won't have any maintenance costs until you reactivate it.Get an Emergency Shelter
Make sure you build an emergency shelter somewhere central in your Jurassic Park because enclosures may get destroyed by storms and when this happens it is inevitable that visitors will get eaten by rampaging dinosaurs. Casualties result in low safety ratings but by having an emergency shelter visitors can flee to you will limit your reputation damage.Use the Map and Management Views
Make sure you take full advantage of the Map and Management View tabs, as they will help you considerably in Jurassic World Evolution 2. The Management View will give you a rundown on the status of your Jurassic Park, from safety measures to the visibility of your dinosaurs. Pay special attention to 'Operative Crowding' which refers to the infrastructure of your Jurassic Park as this can quickly become an issue if not dealt with. The Map View is useful during emergencies, such as a dinosaur escaping, as it will show you where the fences are broken and where your escaped dinosaurs are heading.
