Egg-laying mechanics[edit source]

I found this gem post in the Steam forums about egg-laying mechanics and how the Oviraptor influences it: http://steamcommunity.com/app/346110/discussions/0/485624149164637181/#c485624149168730300

tl;dr: eggs are laid every 17 minutes for mate-boosted dinos and the Oviraptor increases egg production by 33% by having eggs laid every 11 minutes 20 seconds.

Could somebody please add this information to the wiki? 81.203.50.38 11:01, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Incorrect translation[edit source]

Just read through this article again and noticed an error. The word philodator doesn't even remotely mean "egg collector"; the phil- is the same root from which we get terms like "bibliophile", it generally means "-lover", eg. book-lover, when used in English. Oviraptor philoceratops means "egg thief [that] likes [Proto]ceratops"; Wiktionary suggests that dator means "giver" so the correct translation would have to be something like "friend giver".
