Zoo Tycoon and Dino Digs Hints: ------------------------------- Submitted by: Sharon Veatch I have learned these through trial and error while playing the game for hours on end. All this information works on freeform and scenario games. It isn't foolproof and sometimes you can't get the guests happy no matter what. Start the research as soon as you start playing the game, you need to get the zookeeper and worker training as soon as possible. Guests do not start coming until you buy an animal.If you have too many guests, raise your entrance fee to over $50 and you won't get as many new ones. The guests don't care whether you a beautiful zoo or not. All they care about is food,trash,poo,bathrooms, and ANIMALS,ANIMALS,and MORE ANIMALS. The spacing of these things is extremely important. When you add ANY building, put a path to it and one path square under the entrance. I play the game on Pause while I build exhibits and decorate so that I don't use all my time trying get the geusts happy. I only turn it back on to see if the animals like the exhibit or if I need to change something.Time does not pass while you are Paused. You can check the suitibility of the exhibit by clicking on the tree at the bottom right hand corner. The click on the exhibit name.Then put you cursor on the end of last of the bars on the graph that should come up. This you suitiblity rating-it should be 90 or better-. If it isn't, go back and add or subtract some foliage and rocks till it is.If your animals aren't happy, neither are your guests!! The resaurant that is originally in the game has a bathroom and trash cans-use it only and you won't have any trash. Be sure to place it facing different directions. One restaurant will feed about 75 people. Be sure to place one within 20 squares of the entrance because they enter and get hungry FAST. The only other buildings that the guests care about are the petting zoo and animal theater, and occassionally , the japanese garden. The carousel works pretty well,too. The animal houses only please the children. If you have a long path between restaurants ,place a large bathroom about half way, this cuts down on complaints. Family bathrooms hold 8 people at a time and small ones hold 2. It does not matter which fence or which path you use for anything you build. If you leave a row of grass between the exhibits and your path the animals will not feel crowded by guests and the guests can still see them. Exhibits shoud be at lest 10 fence sections in each direction-be sure to put windows so guests can see in. Make sure that your guests are always walking past an animal exhibit--even when there is resaurant or animal house on one side-put an exhibit on the other side or around the building and showing on each side of it. They are not happy if they can't see animals!! Once you place a trash can or a bench you will get trash everwhere and guests will complain about no seating and the the trash. I do not put benches in, or trash cans.If you use any of the small buildings, the same thing happens. Hire lots of maintenence workers and they will take care of the trash and repair fences. One for every 50 guests works pretty good. Assign one zoo keeper per exhibit- it will get you better care of animals. Then put one in and don't assign him\her to an exhibit-he will roam and help the others. The savannah animals are least popular so I put them in the front of my zoo so that they see them first. More popular animals in the back will draw your guests that direction. If you build terrain use the cliff type one,animals like it better. When you put in foliage or rocks- put four in each square- it is denser and the animals like it better. Use Control-G to turn the grid on and off so you can see the squares. Most of the animals like the little rocks better. Whey you stop getting happy faces ad get a red one- stop putting that item in. Most animals like more than one kind of tree-experiment and you have prettier exhibits. I hope all this helps ease some of the frustration while playing this game. You can get more animals,objects and builing on line at the different Zoo Tycoon sites and some great cheats and hacks,too. If you have not upgraded you game through the Microsoft game upgrade available on the Microsft site, you will never get animals or guests happy. I play with all the cheats and hacks because for me the obect of tha game is to have fun and enjoy the experiece!!!!!! unlock the dragon: ------------------ Submitted by: hannah you name an exhibit fire reptile. Hint: ----- Submitted by: harsh Place a lion and a girafe in an will see that the lion eats the giraffe in a few moments.

Zoo Tycoon: General Game Tips: ---------------------------------- Submitted by: abhishek Here's where you'll find tips on the basics of exhibit creation, animal care, guest relations, and zoo finances. Be sure to check out the Hints and Tips list for more articles with additional in-depth information. This article will cover some basic tips on Exhibits, Guests, Animal Care, Finances. Exhibits: --------- One of the keys to animal happiness is exhibit suitability. Click an animal to view the Animal Information panel; the "I" tab displays four bars that measure the animal's happiness, hunger, health, and exhibit suitability. Hover your mouse over any bar to see the exact number rating. Generally speaking, if the "tree" bar (representing the exhibit suitability) is in the green, the animal finds its home satisfactory. If the bar is yellow, click the Zookeeper Recommendations button (the guy in the hat) and adjust the exhibit according to the Zookeeper's suggestions. Bigger is better: Build your exhibits initially larger than you think you need to. Should the animal require a mate and have babies, you will eventually need a larger exhibit. It's best to head this problem off from the start. When you build exhibits, it's a good idea to use the zoo walls as part of the exhibit's borders. It not only saves on fence costs, but zoo walls never deteriorate. No maintenance required! (On those sections, at least.) Some types of foliage and other exhibit features only take up ¼ of a tile. Filling each square completely with foliage often improves the suitability for animals. Press Ctrl+G to reveal the map grid and then, using your foliage tool, fill the square completely with the creatures' favorite plant. You get what you pay for! Expensive fencing is made of higher quality materials and will deteriorate more slowly over time. Buy the most expensive fences when you can afford it. When you build exhibits, it's a good idea to use the zoo walls as part of the exhibit's borders. It not only saves on fence costs, but zoo walls never deteriorate. No maintenance required! (On those sections, at least.) Another (free!) way to refresh fences is to use the gate tool. Click the gate tool and move the gate to the section of decaying fence. You can then move the gate back to any healthy section of fence for free. Place entrances (gate tool) to allow your Zoo Keepers easy access. Maintenance workers are the best value for fence repair (besides cheating!). Be sure to hire enough of them to keep your fences sound. Guests: ------- Trash is the number one hit on guest happiness. Find a balance between enough garbage cans (not too many!) and enough Maintenance Workers to empty them. If your zoo is becoming over-crowded, try raising the price of admission. This should thin out crowds, and may even earn you some extra cash. Different guests like different animals and zoo buildings. For example, children like the petting zoo, whereas the adults would rather visit the aviary. Try to keep your exhibits and buildings well rounded, so there is something for everyone. Be sure to care for your guests with strategically placed drink stands, food stands, benches, tables, and bathrooms. If your guests' basic needs aren't met, they'll become upset and leave! Remember that guests come to see the animals. If you're animals are sick or generally unhappy , you're guests will become upset as well. Guests also appreciate an aesthetically pleasing environment. Place statues, flower beds, archways, etc. to help make your guests feel good about their surroundings. This will go a long way towards pleasing your customers. For more information on making your guests happy, see the article on Guest Care. Animal Care ------------- Herbivores are genrally easier to care for and easier to please. Animals may be happy with several types of foliage, but will always be happiest with their favorite, as listed in the Creature Adoption panel. Some animals prefer a companion, but not necessarily a mate. If you don't want lots of babies, place two animals of the same sex in your exhibit. Some animals will complain about feeling crowded by all the guests. Try to keep the zoo paths one square away from the exhibits. For especially shy animals, try building portions of the exhibit with fences guests can't see through. Some animals won't be happy until their favorite foliage or toy has become available. Be sure to spend some money on Research programs like Exhibit Foliage and Animal Enrichment to make these items available. For help with individual animal preferences please see the article on Animal Care. Zoo Finances -------------- To earn more revenue for your zoo, take advantage of attractions with an entrance fee. The Carousel, Elephant Ride, Restaurant, and Animal Theater can earn your zoo thousands of dollars! Adjust prices at drink and food stands as well as your zoo's admission price. Be careful though. while guests will tolerate some increases in price, they get cranky if the prices are too high. Breeding endangered species in your zoo is a great way to earn conservation grants and other large cash donations for your zoo. Fund the Endangered Animals Conservation program and these exotic animals will become available for adoption. Compost Buildings help earn revenue by selling off the "poo" produced by the animals. Be sure to place the building far away from paths and exhibits so it doesn't irritate your guests. On many maps there are items, such as trees and rocks that you can recycle (click on the bulldozer icon) to gain extra cash. This is an underused but highly effective means of gaining cash. Sell off extra animals to earn money and keep exhibit population within reasonable limits. A Note on Freeform Games ----------------------------- The freeform games are the "sandboxes" of Zoo Tycoon--let your imagination run wild with nearly unlimited funds! Build however you want. There are no goals or restrictions other than what you set for yourself. If you want a challenge, you can adjust the amount of starting Available Cash on the Freeform Map selection screen. In freeform games, you start off with a small collection of objects, buildings, and animals to choose from. If you're patient, more objects and animals become available over time (about every 3 months). You can also fund various Research and Conservation programs to earn more objects and animals, improve conditions, and increase staff training.

Unlimited money: ---------------- Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "zoo.ini" file in the game folder. Locate the following lines and change the values after the "=" as indicated. Note: The changes only affect new games and do not work on saved games. MSStartingCash=10000000 MSCashIncrement=500000 MSMinCash=500000 MSMaxCash=10000000 All scenarios: Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "zoo.ini" file in the game folder. Add the following entries under the "[scenario]" section. [scenario] tutorial=0 ba=1 bb=1 bc=1 ca=1 cb=1 cc=1 cd=1 da=1 db=1 dc=1 dd=1 ea=1 eb=1 Crazy guests: ------------- When your guests are looking at an animal from the side of an exhibit, quickly pause game play and build another exhibit around the guests. Place some lions or crocodiles in the exhibit and resume the game. The guests will begin running around screaming. Free construction: ------------------ Pause game play then start building. No money will be taken. Completing the Breeding Giant Pandas scenario: ---------------------------------------------- To get Panda Research you need to complete the Breeding Giant Pandas scenario. You need to breed Giant Pandas, but you cannot get them until you make fifteen excellent exhibits. You also need to do all Panda Research and get their cave and bamboo. You can then get only two pandas, one male and female. To increase your chance of breeding your pandas, build their exhibit, pause game play, then buy as many pandas as needed before resuming the game. Then wait until the scenario ends. Escaping monkeys: ----------------- if the monkeys are put in an exhibit at ground level, sometimes the Chimpanzees will escape from their exhibit. It is is better if you lower the ground about two or three levels then put a wall on top next to the pavement. However, do not put it on the low ground. The monkeys will not be able to reach the fence to jump out. Do not put any trees close to the edges. They could climb the trees. You now will have an inescapable exhibit. This can also be done for other animals. Cheat: ------ Submitted by: Amy Press and hold shift and 4 (shift first then 4)and you will gain $100,000 every second!

But to make sure there's no pain in getting millions of money make sure you do it at the beginning of the game when you have no enclosures otherwise the fences will break and your animals will escape and then you'll have to buy new animals and new fences which will drain away your new money! Flying Reindeer: ---------------- To have your reindeer flying, name them after Santa's reindeer. (Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen) They don't fly all the time, but eventually stars will appear under their feet and they'lll glide across the exhibit.
