"Tools for getting the job done."
Utilities are a class of Slime Science gadgets that provide useful features to aid you in managing your ranch, as well as exploring the range.

Craft utilities in order to make your slime ranching a little easier.



Utilities can help you with some problems, such as the Tarr and Feral Slimes. They are useful, but they can't be instantly used since they need to install themselves for two minutes after you place them. You can move them around.

  • As said before, it's useful to put Hydro Turrets in many places around the Far, Far Range, especially in areas prone to Tarr infestations, as they can help you with fending them off.
  • It is completely possible to get the master gordo snare before the advanced one.
  • You can lure feral slimes to a Taming Bell, which will calm them down.
    • That also counts for hunter ferals that you can make, so get a Taming Bell!
  • When using a Gordo Snare; it's important to note that for non-master snares, using the favorite food does not guarantee the equivalent slime, though using meat, for example, always attracts meat-eating slimes, or using veggies, guarantees veggie-eating slimes. The only exception to this is Gold Gordos, which can only be baited when using a Gilded Ginger; however, if a non-master snare is used, other veggie-eating gordos can appear.
