Are you coming back to your Palworld base only to find your Pals starving, sick, or just plain unhappy, despite having food and beds around?
Don’t worry, you’re not alone in this predicament. It’s an issue some players face in Palworld, but don’t worry, I’ve got some tips that will turn your base into a haven for your Pals.
How to Ensure Your Pals Are Eating and Happy
First things first, let’s tackle the basics. Check if your food baskets are well-stocked. It might seem obvious, but it’s the starting point. Now, if your Pals are still not eating despite having food available, it’s time to look at AI behavior and pathing issues.
Check for Stuck Pals: Sometimes, your Pals might get stuck somewhere in the base. You return and find them starving. The solution? Head over to your Palbox, take out the Pals one by one, and then put them back. This simple trick resets their location. If they head straight for food upon reappearing, they were stuck and are now free to eat.
Mind the Pathing: The AI in Palworld can be quirky. If Pals are not eating, it might be due to pathing issues. For instance, they might not be able to reach the food because something’s blocking their way. It’s like having a maze in your base they can’t navigate. Keep an eye out for any obstacles and rearrange your base layout if needed.
Building and Sleeping Areas: The construction system in Palworld can be a bit challenging. If you’ve got beds or buildings, ensure your Pals can actually access them. A Pal that doesn’t get proper sleep will get sick and angry. If they aren’t using the beds, try moving them to different spots. Sometimes, just rearranging can make all the difference.
Monitor Their Behavior: After making changes, observe your Pals. Are they going about their tasks? Are they eating and sleeping properly? This can give you clues about any other adjustments you might need to make.
Understand the AI’s Limits: Remember, Palworld is still in early access, so AI behavior isn’t perfect. It’s a continuous work-in-progress. Patience and experimentation are key.
