The Air Conditioner is an electronic device that offers up to a maximum of +100 hyperthermal and hypothermal insulation when powered. The effect is reduced by distance from the Air Conditioner.

While fairly expensive, the Air Conditioner does provide a positive bonus to both insulation values, helping to combat both cold and heat. Because of this, it is very helpful when hatching fertilized Dino Egg.png Eggs during the process of Breeding, as it protects them from the weather.

The Air Conditioner's range is two foundations. Its insulation bonus goes from 100 at its center to zero when more than two foundations away. Its effects pass through walls, floors and ceilings. There is no difference regardless if it is placed indoors or outdoors. To have maximum insulation bonus locate yourself or what you want to insulate (e.g., eggs) as close as possible to the A/C. Having multiple Air Conditioners will stack the effect of insulation, making it desirable to have multiple when incubating.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Some eggs may require up to ten air conditioners to incubate, be prepared for the cost!
  • The Air Conditioner is treated as a wooden structure and can not be damaged by hands, Stone weapons, or non-explosive ranged attacks.
  • The following creatures can not damage the Air Conditioner:
