Slime Rancher V1.4.0 Update 2019! Slime Rancher is a first-person, sandbox game by the indie studio, Monomi Park. The game is available in Windows, MacOS, Linux, PS4 and Xbox One. In the game, you control a slime rancher character named Beatrix LeBeau, the setting of the game is in a distant alien world called ‘Far Far Range.’ Life is as a slime rancher in Far Far Range consists of building your own ranch and exploring the wilderness to collect, breed, and feed cute gelatinous organisms called slimes. Played by over 5 million people and has a 98% score on Steam, Slime Rancher has been a great success in the gaming industry. V1.4.0 Update Log This latest slime rancher update dubbed the ‘Viktor’s Experimental Update’ introduces a new concept and some new gadgets that will help players in many ways, shapes, and forms. Slime-ulations Viktor Humphries has created a working (Well, almost) simulation of the world of Far Far Range. However, bugs, in the form of glitchy slimes. Viktor needs your help to turn over these ‘bugs’ and help him perfect his slime-ulation. Glitch… Slimes? These glitchy little gelatins can morph into anything and hide from your view. Capture them and escape from the unstable simulation before the corruption spreads. Once you leave the simulations, these Glitch Slimes will turn into ‘Bug Reports.’ You can then hand over these bug reports to Viktor in exchange for new tech! Be careful, however, as these Glitch Slimes has a chance to escape your tank if you ever get damaged. They can be hard to spot, but Viktor’s patented ‘Debug Spray’ will be able to help your search for them. When moving, these slimes leave a glitchy or pixelated trail behind, which will also help you locate them. Also remember that these slimes can pretend to be anything, from a regular slime to a tree. Unfortunately, however, these slimes cannot be added to your ranch as another species. When you leave the simulation, they will turn into bug reports, meaning, you can’t bring them to your ranch. New Gadgets! Along with this new event, new gadgets will also be invented in the world of Far Far Range. These gadgets will add new mechanisms to your ranch and will help you on your quest of taking care of your precious little slimes. Advance Drones. Your normal bee-like drones will be outmatched by this new and enhanced drone. The Advance Drones will be able to handle two programs instead of the standard ones. Meaning, you can gather your crops and feed your slimes all with one drone instead of two! Quite handy, isn’t it? Portable Water Tap. This new invention is a portable water source that you can bring with you. It is small and can be used to refill your tank when you can’t find a pond or water source anywhere. Can’t have you being thirsty now, can you? Chicken Cloner. It’s in the name. It clones chickens. Maybe. The Chicken Cloner is an experimental gadget that can perfectly clone your chickens. Whether it can perfectly work, however, is still up to debate. Try it out and see for yourself! Decorizer! This Decorizer is a new storage device that could be acquired through the ‘7Zee Rewards Club’ as a ‘Mid-tier Prize.’ A lot of players are looking forward to this new device, and it is for a reason. It is a handy tool that can manage and clean up your ranch’s decorative items like Echoes and ornaments. New DLC! Monomi Park has said that they’re developing a new paid cosmetic DLC in where you can re- skin every slime you have. From angelic phosphor slimes to striped tiger tabbies, this purely cosmetic DLC adds new and exotic forms to you slimes! When is the Next Update for Slime Rancher?

It has colorful graphics and user-friendly interface, but first of all, it is popular for its outstanding plot. You’ve heard it, not ploRt. You may have been a farmer in hundreds of games. But have you been a farmer who raises Slimes for receiving their feces? Doubtfully. Tarrs and Largo Slimes This happens in the game, so don’t get taken by surprise. After one slime eats the Plort of another type of slime, huge globs are created. Usually, this slime inherits some characteristics of its kinsman which Plort it ate. For example, when Rock Slime eats a Plort of Pink Slime, it becomes Pink Rock Largo. Largo gives two Plorts instead of one, after it eats, for each part of its new identity. Still, there are some boundaries even for plort-eating slimes. They will not eat slime of their own species. So, no Pink or Rock Plorts for a Pink Rock Largo. It eats other types of Plort. Let’s call it the third-party Plort. When it does that, you may receive a Tarr on your Ranch. Here are some slime rancher tips 2019 for you of how to deal with a Tarr: Throw them into the sea Spray them with pond or geyser water Throw them into the pond If you don’t want to get dirty, just leave Tarr somewhere in the empty area far from you. You can come back later as it will dissipate after a while. Be ready, that it will eat all other slimes in this area. The life on the Ranch is tough, so you better be ready to make hard decisions. The importance of making your slime happy You don’t want to see an angry slime. And the best option is to feed them on time. Food makes them happy, like all of us. The lack of food makes them try to escape from the Corral where they live on Ranch. Sometimes they are trying to get to other slimes. Some of their original bad habits can get stronger when they hungry. Pink slime will stack into a tower against the wall. The best option is to feed them. Picking between Largos and normal It is your choice to make. You can raise normal or Largo slime. You can have different types on your Ranch. One day you’ll want to extend the Ranch and add more species. Largos will need 3 times more space than normal. And yet, they will give twice more Plorts. What about normal slime? It has two main benefits: They are smaller and can co-exist together in one Corral, which they don’t mind to live in Slimes usually have favorite foods, aside from Pink one which eats everything. Once you are feeding them with favorites they give you two Plorts Pink Slime Let’s talk about one of the most popular slimes in the Slime World. Usually, it is the first slime you’ll have to face on your first assignment. They have the least expensive Plort, but they can eat everything, they are easy to handle. Their main bad habit is to stack atop each other and try to escape. This happens a lot when they are hungry. But good news is they eat anything. Tabby Slime They are favorites of many gamers. They look so cute, it is hard to resist. And yet, they do have their dark sides. Once they are unhappy, they will escape so quick, you would not even notice they are gone. They can even be fed, they just have fun this way. Some of them may still be outside their Corral waiting for you to let them back. But they have other things to irritate you. Sometimes they pick up food that can’t eat and carry it with them. They can take crops they don’t want to eat if you are keeping them free. Their favorite dish is Stony Hens. Still, they also love any meat. Rock Slime Rock Slime is a harmful one. They are not hostile, but you need to be careful with them anyway. They are adorable in a peaceful state of mind like to roll around. This is when you’d better stay away. They love vegetables and don’t try to escape anywhere. Their favorite option is Heart Beet, which is rare, but other vegetables are easy to grow. Rock Slime Largos are too big and hard to take care of. Phosphor Slime It can be raised on the ranch once you install Solar Shield to the Corral. Their natural habitat is Grotto, mainly because it is always dark there. They reveal all their beauty in the dark. Their favorite food is fruit. They love Cuberry. Phosphor Slime can fly as they have wings. Usually, it is short distances only. So you need to keep them in Corral with Air Net on it. They can grab each other when flying to the top of Corrals. Sometimes it is when they are trying to escape. The best option is not to keep many of them in one Corral. Boom Slime They can’t be reached until you unlock Moss Blanket territory. They usually explode, and extremely hard to raise. Even standing outside the cage you are taking risks. Their Plort costs 30 Newbucks. Feed them Briar Hen to keep happy. Honey Slime It appears after you unlock Moss Blanket. Sweet and adorable, and other slimes love their Plorts. You need to constantly watch that other slimes don’t break to Honey Slime cage. Their favorite food is fruits, especially Mint Mango. Puddle Slime You can find them hiding in ponds. They prefer water to the land where they can disappear as well as their Plorts. They need Pond plot. They don’t eat. They produce Puddle Plort every six hours. Gold Slime This is the best thing that can happen to you. The real treasure. Their Plorts cost lots of money. They can’t be captured or raised. Developers promise to extend the line of your pets on Ranch. For now, there are tons of things to do besides constantly feeding forever hungry slime creatures. If you want to be successful in this game, it is important to follow short instructions and get familiar with the game.   Continue Reading Slime rancher game: how to open treasure pods For starters, if you want to open Treasure Pods in this game, you need to get Treasure Cracker. While all the Treasure Pods are hidden from treasure hunters like you, and they are extremely hard to find, you can pick up Treasure Cracker in no time.  But to do this, you need to read instructions first. There is not everything just about searching for plorts and collecting them to exchange for upgrades of your Ranch. The map of Slime’s world is really something! You may find some hidden treasures in the least expected places. There are dozens of pods hidden on your path. What are the Treasure Pods? Treasure Pods are mysterious round-shaped objects that can be found on the Far Far Range. Each of them rewards Beatrix with a special blueprint for gadgets Slime Science, Slime Science Resources or Decoration, and sometimes, in very rare cases, Golden Plorts. None of them can be opened with ease. There is a trick for everything in the game, so you have to use Cracker. No magic keys are hidden under the rock. But it would not be so interesting if it was so easy. Right? Getting Treasure Cracker in the game The main key to Treasure Pods is in a Treasure Cracker. If you know how to get it, you know everything. Well, almost everything. But this is a turning point in the game. All you have to do is to get a Lab in the game. The lab will be opened for 10 000 Newbucks. So, you need to gather much more plorts. After you unlock the Lab, don’t rush in. The Extractor must complete its 1st cycle. After it will be done, go to the Vacpack Upgrades. You will find Treasure Cracker MKI there if you will look carefully. It costs 4 500 Newbucks. This tool helps you to open Treasure Pods with green color, that you can find playing Slime Rancher. If you wondering where to find green pods, here is a hint for you: Indigo Quarry, Dry Reef, Ancient Ruins, Moss Blanket. Go there, pay attention to everything. However, if you paid attention to what we just discussed, you may have noticed that this model does not open other pods, in purple and blue colors. You will need to upgrade the Treasure Cracker basic model. So, you need to go back to the Lab again. Now you have to create Gadgets inside the Lab. MKII model will be available after you build 35 Gadgets. It costs 9 000 Newbucks. After that, you can open blue Treasure Pods as well as green. Blue pods are normally can be met in Glass Desert. Go there, enjoy the view, and search for treasuries. What about the Purple one? The price for it is 100 Gadgets, build in Lab. It will update your Cracker to MKIII version. Now you can open green, blue and purple pods that you have found in the game.  MKIII costs 25 000 Newbucks. Purple pods are better than others just because they can be found everywhere in the game. You don’t have to travel across the map there. Still, they are the hardest to open, for obvious reasons. So, the short manual for you is to unlock the Lab – search Vackpack upgrades for Treasure Cracker – upgrade it by building Gadgets – 35 for MKII model – 100 for MKIII version. What is hidden in the slime rancher game treasure pods? It is a normal question after all the hard work you were willing to do and the money you’ve spent. Since there are lots of treasure pods with different stuff inside, you will have to find out what contains this or that pod on your own. Usually, they contain science blueprints, golden plorts, random but useful resources, or more decorations for the Ranch. While Golden Plorts is a rare catch, it can boost your finances. To make it easier for gamers, developers pointed out direct numbers of pots you can gather in the game. Green Pods There are 19 green treasure pods you can find in Slime Rancher: 2 at the Ancient Ruins 4 at the Indigo Quarry 6 at the Moss Blanket 7 at the Dry Reef Blue Pods There are 29 blue pods in total: 4 at the Moss Blanket 6 at the Dry Reef 6 at the Ancient Ruins 6 at the Indigo Quarry 7 pods at the Glass Dessert Purple Pods There are 37 different purple treasure pods which can be met almost everywhere: 2 at the Dry Reef 6 at the Ancient Ruins 6 at the Indigo Quarry 7 at the Moss Blanket 16 at the Glass Dessert While there are already a lot of treasures you can gather, developers of the game assure that there are more upcoming updates.

It is all in the slime rancher map locations, which you will have to use to not get lost and open new lands for you. The map is called The Map of Far, Far Range, and is a new feature in the game brought by 1.0.1 Update in the Navigation. At first, your map is blank and featureless.

There is a big spoiler alert, so if you want to do everything on your own, without any special hints, stop reading it. Dry Reef Go to the Ranch of yours. You will start your path there. Run to the Dry Reef by following the closest to the water path. Find the area that has a cave and water geyser. Stop there and face the water. There is a map of this area on the left side, close to the ledge. Indigo Quarry This map node is also not really complicated to find. And it definitely brings more colors to this world once it is activated. The node is hidden by tricky developers inside the cave that you may have seen during your quest for the first Rock Gordo. If you don’t remember it is ok. Go back to the Ranch. Now head to the Grotto and pass the cave. Use the teleport to Gordo’s cave. Move a little bit forward and face the opposite wall. The map node will be on the left from exit. Moss Blanket Do you notice how fascinating it is to explore this Slime’s world by simply trying to activate the map? Now you have to pass the bridge, and open the door to the Moss Blanket area. It will be at the end of the bridge. After that, pass the huge center area and find numerous ledges on the other side of it. Hop on it straight to the plateau with a big tree. There you will find another node. Ancient Ruins There is something exciting hidden behind this name. Find out what it is, by opening the node. You don’t have to go back to the Ranch after you traveled so far. So, once you are already at the Moss Blanket, find the east direction, and go there. It will take you to the Ancient Ruins. You will see amazing gigantic gates decorated with some dashing ornaments. Go through them. Try to head directly to the center of this area. Now, when you reached the center go to the right and find the map there. It is close to the Glass Dessert teleporter hallways. Glass Desert You may already understand what you need to do next. The Glass Dessert is the last location and you have already found all the nodes of previous territories. There is no turning back option. Be brave and go directly to the teleport. Let your future doesn't scare you. This teleport travels from Ancient Ruins to Glass Dessert that is surprise-surprise the main place for hidden blue treasure pods. Keep this information in mind. You’ll need it one day. Now you need to go to the tower, the location of Tangle Gordo. You don’t need to go far from it. Just head to the ground level and reach for the back side of the tower. There you will find the map node of Glass Dessert. Do you see it? No? Look beneath this beautiful stone circle. What do you need the map for? The map allows you to track important things in the game. It will make life of the player easier and allow you to concentrate on other things: Gordo icons are opened on the map once Gordo slime has been fed for the first time. Now you can track Snared and Wild species. Keys are not really tracked there. Still, it shows how many of them were collected if the Map Node is activated. Extractors can be seen on the map as well after the Extractor is placed. Every type of extractor has its own icon on the map. Teleporters made by players have found its place on the map too. It does not matter if they are linked or not, they will be revealed on the map. Each icon is unique and highlighted by the color. Treasure pods may not be tracked directly. The map shows only those pods that already have been opened after the Node was activated. Slime Rancher Map exploration is a whole new quest in this game. It gives you the opportunity to learn the territory and see the main attraction of this world. Have fun on your way to new areas.   Continue Reading Slime Rancher how to get ornaments and what to do with ornaments What are the ornaments? They are mainly decorative, small and spherical cute items that first appeared in Slime Rancher’s update Wiggly Wonderland. Their second batch was introduced in Party Gordo Update, and the 3 more appeared in The Optimization Update. Right now, there are 38 unique colorful Ornaments in the game. New creatures have similar difficult behavior as Chimes and Echoes. They float in the place after shot from your mechanical Vacpack. After associated with the game event is over, all the ornaments that you have managed to gather will remain. They can be gathered during time-limited special events in Slime Rancher. Company developers announce the new appearance of Ornaments beforehand. These cuties usually available starting the midnight. It is also known that they appeared in crates on the ranch. Each of such crates can have one of three unique ornaments. There is another chance to receive ornaments. By taking part in the seasonal giveaway, making screenshots of holiday display at the Slime Ranch and sharing it with friends, adding a hashtag. The first appearance of ornaments took place from the 20th of December 2017 to the 1st January of 2018. There were 15 ornaments appeared at this period of time. It happened during Wiggly Wonderland celebration inside the game. After that, developers of the game released 20 more cuties. It happened during Party Weekend, in Party Gordo edition. Two types of ornaments were represented during the week. However, there were almost no chances to catch seasonal ornaments. While all of these Ornaments are looking like small colorful balls, they have different theme decorations. Some of them look seasonal. For example, there are Jack Ornament with Pumpkin Jack’s head on it, or Clover Ornament with the clover inside, that reminds us of St. Patrick’s Day, Snowflake Ornament with the white snowflake on light blue background brings Christmas associations. Others have bird faces or just stripes on them. Almost all of the Slime rancher ornaments have Echoes in them. Also, they all were created based on baubles. And while it is not possible to receive ornaments outside the special events dates, the game still runs off from your computer clock. We strongly don’t recommend messing up with your computer’s clock to receive ornaments. It can cause problems with the game’s backup. You may do it at your own risk.

As it was already mentioned above, you can trick the system and change the date on your PC. Make sure that the game is off when you do this. But it is really tricky and risky, and you can have problems with the system and game afterward. Another option is to wait passionately for the new seasonal events and celebrations. It is easier. There are new holidays that are coming soon. All you have to do is remember the dates of these holidays and enter the game during them. And don’t forget to visit the game during the weekends. Why do you need Ornaments? Well, the first obvious reason is that they are too adorable. Another one is that you can collect the whole pack. After that, you can tell your friends about them make photos of them and place into your scrapbook. Do you need more reasons? Obviously, they were made to be decorations of your Ranch.

You can just give them food and wait for Plorts. Go to the Plort Market to sell it for cash, after you’ll notice that Vacpack is already full. Now take the cash and buy Corrals. Don’t waste your precious time in the game. Corralin’ is the key to how to win slime rancher game Don’t stop the process after a few successful trades. Continue to gather Corrals. Go back to the reef and suck Rock and Pink Slimes. Why choose Rock Slimes? Well, they are on a better diet, so the Plort from them is more expensive. Why haven't you started with them from the beginning? Rock Slimes are spiky and you can hurt yourself. Pick enough rock and pink Slimes go back to the ranch to change it into Corrals. Make sure you don’t mix more than 2 different Slimes together or there will be a really unpleasant surprise. Now you may start your own Slime farm. They will live at the Ranch and produce Plorts after you feed them. While pink slimes are eating everything, rock slimes are vegetarians that prefer Heart Beets. Start your Garden Not all Plorts must be exchanged on Corrals. You may want to save some cash to make another investment in your future, as a successful Rancher. Start your own Garden. This will save you time and money. You Slimes need to feed all the time. This is a repetitive process without end. You may want to grow crops in your garden. After it will be harvested, you may feed Slimes. The ideal number is up to 3 vegetable crops for Slimes. Now you can work in your garden and still collecting Plorts while harvest is growing. Upgrade the walls of Corrals to raise the capacity of your Slime. Don’t worry, your investments will be doubled some day. Make farming fancy After you put so much effort into building the Ranch, it has to look great. And now you can make your life there easier. Take the money you gathered from Slimes’ Plorts and put it into the auto feeder and auto collector of Plort. With this upgrade you may concentrate on other tasks of the game. Auto feeder will give the vegetables you gathered to Slimes and plort collector helps to deal with dangerous species. Instead of dealing with rock slimes yourself, vacuum their plort standing outside. There is an upgrade for Garden as well. Increase yields, speed up the raise of crops. This will help to feed Slimes and to make them valuable for you. Explore the world and expand your territories Your business is booming and the ranch is growing.
