The Bronto Platform Saddle is a special saddle for the Brontosaurus and the alternative to the normal Bronto Saddle.png Bronto Saddle. The player can place structures on top of the Bronto Platform Saddle and thus build mobile bases. It is still possible to attack and harvest with the Bronto while driving the platform saddle.

If the Bronto is killed, all structures on the saddle are destroyed, even vaults may not survive the fall. The platform saddle can be recollected from the corpse, though.

Utility[edit | edit source]

  • If a Simple Bed.png Bed is built on the saddle, a player may teleport to the Bronto whenever he/she dies or may travel between several Brontos/bases. However, if the Bronto is nearby an enemy structure the player will be unable to teleport to the Bronto.
  • If a Feeding Trough.png Feeding Trough is built on the saddle any nearby allied creatures will be fed by the trough.

Limitations[edit source]

All structures except for Metal Irrigation Pipe - Tap.png Pipes, Auto Turret.png Auto Turrets, Crop Plots with Plant Species X.png Plant Species X, Behemoth Gateway.png Behemoth Gateway, Vault.png Vault, and Industrial Forge.png Industrial Forge can be built on its back including feeding troughs, storage chests and beds. However, the saddle has a limit of 63 structures on its back. Every little thing counts from foundations to electrical keypads (including structures that are built alongside the saddle like ladders).

Weight inside the inventory of storage structures on the saddle is not ignored by the Bronto, making it inefficient at carrying the materials of a full base. As of v256 100% of animal weight is conveyed to the Bronto. Take advantage of animals that have weight reduction capabilities to greatly enhance your overall carry capacity.

The saddle cannot be removed from the Bronto if structures are still on the platform. To remove the saddle all structures must be destroyed first.

The saddle cannot be dyed if structures are still on the platform. To dye the saddle, all structures must be destroyed first.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If a foundation is placed on top of the platform, 7 rope ladders will allow the player to get down safely. Placing 8 will cause the last section to go into the ground and the player will need to hit e to jump off the ladder.
