Overview[edit | edit source]
Weight is a measure of how much you are carrying. Every item has a weight value, and if the total weight value of everything you are carrying becomes too great, you will slow down or even stop. If your carried weight becomes equal to or greater than about 85% of your total weight, you will become Encumbered, which will slow your movement speed considerably and render you unable to jump. If your carried weight becomes equal to or greater than your total weight, you will be unable to move at all until you drop enough items. Encumbered dinosaurs can not wander to mate.
Increasing[edit | edit source]
Putting a point into Weight will increase your total weight capacity by 10.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- When riding a tamed creature, your total weight is added to theirs. If you are carrying items with a total weight of 150 and you mount a Raptor with a weight capacity of 160, the Raptor will be encumbered and therefore move slowly. The same applies if your weight exceeds the weight capacity of your mount.
- Your actual character does not have a weight. If you are not carrying anything, no weight will be added to the mount.
