New Content - Free Update 1.10.0

  • NEW - Education Stations
    • Education Stations are a new way for guests in your zoo to interact with educational content. Guest groups with children can interact with these assets for a small boost to their happiness, education, and the zoo's overall education rating.
    • Three types of Education Stations are available via the Facilities > Media Devices and Education menu
      • Sound Education Station: A customisable sound board which allows guests to listen to an animal sound, before the image of the animal is revealed. Can you guess who you just heard howling? Both the image and sound can be customised by adding custom images and audio files to the game in the same way billboards and speakers can be customised
      • Height Education Station: An educational measuring station for guests to compare their height to that of an animal. Height Education Stations come in two variations: Giraffe and Gorilla
      • Pawprint Education Station: An educational station that lets guests compare their own hands to animal paws and feet.
  • NEW - Animal Chorus
    • The new chorus behaviour is available to the following animals:
      • Siamang
      • Timber Wolf
      • Arctic Wolf
    • Animals engaging in chorus behaviours have a chance to begin a chorus if they are currently idle and are within range of other members of the same species. Other idle animals in range of the chorus leader can be influenced by their action and decide to join in.
    • During a chorus, the leader will perform calls, which will be answered by other participants. The amount of calls and overall length of a chorus event depends on the species.
  • NEW - Brachiation
    • A new enrichment and climbing set, the Metal Climbing Frames, have been added to the base game of Planet Zoo, available to all players:
      • Metal Climbing Frame Beam
      • Metal Climbing Frame Ramp
      • Metal Climbing Frame Curve 180¬į
      • Metal Climbing Frame Curve 90¬į
      • Metal Climbing Frame Extension
    • This modular set of climbing assets is used by the Conservation Pack's Siamang for their exciting new brachiation behaviour, allowing these gibbons to swing freely across your custom built frames in their habitat
    • All animals who can navigate thin climbing pieces will also be able to climb across the Metal Climbing Frames using climbing locomotion
  • NEW - Sniff behaviours
    • Animals will now engage with changes in their habitat by investigating new objects or areas other animals have slept and left their scent in. When animals are idle, they will navigate to the most recently chosen point of interest and perform a sniffing animation:
      • When a new object (such as a new piece of foliage or a new enrichment item) has been placed inside a habitat, animals have a chance to want to sniff and explore this new addition
      • Animals will also leave a scent in spots they have slept in, which can dynamically generate a new point of interest other animals will want to check out
    • The chance of an animal expressing interest in such a change in their environment differs by species, with some being more inquisitive than others
    • Sniff behaviours are available to the majority of all species in Planet Zoo except for the following:
      • Aardvark
      • Aldabra Giant Tortoise
      • Chinese Pangolin
      • Galapagos Giant Tortoise

We are aware of an issue related to Siamangs brachiating between linked frames of the new climbing enrichment item. The team is hard at work to resolve this and in the meantime the Siamangs will still brachiate along individual sections of the frame. We’ll share more information over the coming days on when this fix will be available. Thank you for your patience!
