A creature holding a stick.

A Pickup object is a type of object that are found in the Creature Stage and within Galactic Adventures (if placed and toggled) which can be picked up with graspers or mouths. They can be thrown at other creatures, including Rogue and Epic creatures, or dropped in other places to decorate nests.

List[]

Creature Stage[]

Pickup objects in the Creature Stage will be scattered around certain areas and can be picked up by any creature, with or without graspers. If a creature has no graspers, it will pick it up with its mouth(s). Pickup Objects can be thrown by the player with a combat stance and gifted by a player in a social stance.

Sticks[]

Sticks are used mainly for comedic effect, though they don't hurt creatures. When a stick lands on a target, they will hop, shake their head, and a speech bubble reading "@#$%!" will appear. However, this does not affect the relationship with the species.

Shells[]

Shells can stun a creature temporarily. Usually, they appear in shores. They also seem to be more effective barriers around nests.

Rocks[]

Just like shells, Rocks can stun a creature but for a longer period of time.Source needed They always appear near some natural landmarks.

GA[]

Objects placed into an Adventure can be made into a pickup object by toggling the option in the object's settings. Pickup objects can be used as to complete an objective (such as giving the object to another creature in the mission). Pickup objects in Galactic Adventures can be picked up by either graspers or mouths.

Keys[]

Objects marked as keys are used to unlock a corresponding gate and will disappear when the creature holding the key makes contact with the matching gate.

Explosives[]

Explosives will detonate upon contact with a surface, object, actor or player, dealing a set amount of damage to anything in the blast radius. Explosive items can also be set to detonate after a set time upon being picked up, even if the item is still being held.

Notes[]

  • If the player clicks on their creature while holding one of these objects, they will hit themselves on the head with it, although this doesn't affect the creature in any way.
  • When in social stance and holding an object, clicking on another creature will cause the player's creature to present the object to the other creature as a gift. Unlike gifts in other parts of the game, this does not improve the player's creature relationship with the other creature. When presented with a gift, the creature will place it near their nest as decoration. However, the player can only give a gift if the other creature has graspers.
