This page needs revising!
This page contains information that is either out-of-date or from a different source (e.g. Upstream SS14). Some information on this page may differ from how it actually works on Delta-V.
Reason for revision: "Outdated due to the Rebase Update. Their sources, where they are usually found, need to be updated."

Critters are life forms with simple behavior patterns that are controlled by the game's artificial intelligence. This AI is remarkably limited in many respects, which most often manifests in sub-par path-finding and limited interactions. They come in a variety of forms, ranging from benign to horrific monsters that will destroy you instantly.

There exist many species of fauna (animals / fish) that can either be useful, useless or aggressive whilst alive. However, all fauna are useful when dead as they can be cooked by a Chef, sold by Logistics or recycled into biomass by Medical.

Note that when sold, the value of a corpse is sometimes more valuable than when cooked. e.g. a mouse corpse is ~200 whilst a cooked object is ~50.

This is an incomplete list of fauna you may encounter on the station or in space. Note that each creature has its own walk speed, damage, durability, air requirements and temperature tolerance. For example:

  • a mouse takes less damage than a space carp
  • a penguin can live in a fridge whilst a cow may die
  • a duck will die if there's no air whilst a space carp thrives in the vacuum of space.

Pets

These are animals or critters with specific names and are considered Allies to the station. They are usually found on the station and wander around the place.
