This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena, the author of the dossiers has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creatures.
The Light Bug is believed to be a descendant of the Lampyridae insect family. Typically, an insect with its characteristics will flourish in areas with no known natural predators. However, I believe the Light Bug population is moderated by the amount of creatures that vie for its charged light source.
Despite being the source of a prized resource, many tribes believe the Light Bug to be sacred and admire it for its illuminance and elegant patterns.
Domesticating a Light bug would be a complete waste of time. It is not known to have any useful utility or function. I imagine you could save on fuel by using them to light a settlement.
Looks like an oversized lightning bug with a fairly wide green glowing aura.
Color Scheme and Regions
This section displays the Glowbug's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Glowbug. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Glowbug will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.
Server admins can use this region information in the Console Command"cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>". For example, "cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6" would color the Glowbug's "body main" magenta.
1Percentages are based on the value of the stat the moment the creature was tamed (after taming effectiveness) 2The absolute Base Damage is shown here instead of the percentage. 3Wild creatures do not level up movement speed 4Torpidity increases every level on wild creatures, but can not be increased once they are tamed.
For fresh survivors the Glowbug can be an early source of Chitin since they spawn in relatively high numbers in the easy spawn areas. Using a good gathering animal like a Ravager or even a Stone Hatchet can get you a decent supply of chitin and even some meat, if you are not in dire need of charge at the time.
However, if getting Charge Light supplies without relying too often on tamed Charged Light Dinos is a priority, survivors can trap them in huts/cages for easy harvesting without harming them. Utilize creature such as Megalosaurus to pick them up.
Charge can be collected with empty hands by approaching and pressing "use" (Default e//). Fills either a Charge Battery or a shoulder mounted pet. This will cause itself and any nearby Glowbug to flee, preventing any further refilling.
