Benefits

Meteorite Effects
When you discover each meteorite site, multiple one-time benefits will take place. You don't need to pick up the meteorite to gain the benefits, you merely examine the site and the following benefits will take place:

Genetic Mutations

Meteorite sites also induce random genetic mutations in babies that don't already have a mutation. There is a specific set of actions that is required to get these mutations to appear.

  • Trigger meteorites to fall from the sky through in game events related to location discoveries.
  • Baby ico32.pngPiggyback any babies you want to acquire mutations on you or following clan members' backs.
  • Travel to and inspect an undiscovered SenseIcon Meteorite site.png meteorite site.
  • The next time you use the Baby ico32.pngDrop Child action at a MindIcon SleepSpot.png Sleep Spot, any babies present when you inspected the meteorite site will gain a random mutation.

It should be noted that babies can only acquire mutations once per meteorite site upon discovery. Only babies that were present upon the inspection of a meteorite site will acquire mutations and you can't go back later with additional babies having already inspected the site.

Through carefully managing when you discover meteorite sites, it is possible to induce the maximum amount of genetic mutations possible.

  • Induce mutations in a full generation of six babies using a meteorite site.
  • Change a generation and the babies with mutations will grow into adults with mutations.
  • Induce mutations into another set of six babies.
  • Change a generation and this time the adults will grow into elders with mutations and the babies will turn into adults with mutations.
  • Twelve clan members (six adults, six elders) with genetic mutations is the maximum amount of genetic mutations that can be locked in via an evolutionary leap.
Due to the finite nature of meteorite sites, this process of twelve genetic mutations from meteorites can only be performed a limited amount of times per lineage.

Uses

The Meteorite is on par with other blunt tools for altering items. It takes the same amount of hits to create rock tools as any other rock like a MindIcon GraniteRock.png Granite Rock or a MindIcon Powerstone.png Precious Stone.

Meteorites can also be used as blunt weapons. While not as effective as a SenseIcon SharpStick.pngSharpened Stick, they can still be useful.

A Meteorite can be used in the following ways:
