In this article, we will explain how to increase incubation speed in Palworld. As you surely know by now, in Palworld, it is possible to find and create eggs thanks to the breeding process. However, once you have obtained some eggs, you will need to place them inside an incubator for a period of time to hatch them. There are some things you can take into consideration to ensure that the waiting time is less than expected and we will tell you how to do it.
How to Increase Incubation Speed in Palworld
While the incubation process is simple at its core, there are some slightly more complex mechanics that need to be considered if we want to make the most of this feature. In fact, as you progress in your adventure, you will find increasingly complex eggs, such as the Huge Dragon Eggs, which require more care and attention than normal ones. For this reason, there are some things you need to follow if you want to ensure that the incubation time is not excessively long.
Keep an Eye on Your Eggs' Needs
The first thing to take into consideration when incubating an egg is the surrounding environment. In fact, each type of egg prefers a different environment. Pay attention to what the egg requires of you and try to build things that allow you to achieve a perfect environment for that type of egg. This is the first step to copy to ensure that the incubation time does not increase exponentially.
Change Difficulty Setting
Palworld gives you the opportunity to play at different difficulty levels and the higher the difficulty of the game, the longer the egg will take to hatch. Consequently, our advice is to keep the difficulty of the game to a minimum. Alternatively, you can also decide to change only the egg setting, i.e., “(h) to incubate Massive Egg”.
Changing Hatching Configuration
The last method you have to increase the egg incubation speed in Palworld is to set up a dedicated server and modify your INI config files. This method is slightly more complex than the ones we described previously, but don't worry, we will explain what you need to do step by step. First, search your computer for the following string “SteamLibrary\steamapps\common”. Search for and open the “PalGameWorldSettings.ini” file as a text file and look for the “PalEggDefaultHatchingTime” entry. Now, change the voice to one to reduce the time.
Once you have saved the change, you are ready to restart the game and see that the incubation times will be reduced. However, keep in mind that if you have placed eggs before making this change, you will have to remove them and put them back in for the changes to truly take effect. If you have followed all the steps precisely and carefully, your eggs should now hatch in less time, which will allow you to use your incubator more often and have new Pals at your disposal in less time.
