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

Utility[edit | edit source]

  • If a Simple Bed.png Bed is built on the saddle, a player may teleport to the Mosasaur whenever he/she dies or may travel between several Mosasaur/bases. However, if the Mosasaur is nearby an enemy structure the player will be unable to teleport to the Mosasaur.
  • If a Feeding Trough.png Feeding Trough is built on the saddle any nearby allied dinos 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 70 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 Mosasaur, making it inefficient at carrying the materials of a full base. As of v256 100% of animal weight is conveyed to the Mosasaur. Take advantage of animals that have weight reduction capabilities to greatly enhance your overall carry capacity.

The saddle cannot be removed from the Mosasaur 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.
