Downloaded dinos will not eat from inventory or trough.

Dear forum members,
for some time now we have been creating and maintaining new ways to help game server admins with questions and problems as quickly as possible, e.g. our Guides section and the Nitrado Community Discord.

Therefore, we inform you that the Nitrado Forum will be closed on March 31, 2023. We are consolidating our community support to our Discord channel, which is faster and more efficient. We have also seen incredible growth in our community due to the hard work of our moderators and our bots. We are confident that this move will ensure that we provide the best support possible for our users.

Thank you to all members for your continued use of the forum!

Assistance with all questions concerning your Nitrado service can now be found in these spots:

  • Nintendo Switch server, just switched from The Island to Scorched Earth yesterday.

    We uploaded our dinos to an obelisk and proceeded to download a few of them to get started on Scorched Earth, but noticed that they were not eating on their own, either from inventories or food troughs.

    We've tried cryopodding, reuploading and downloading again, repeating the process at Green Obelisk (in case we needed to use the same color we uploaded to for some reason), and putting the pods into preserving bins or cryo fridges before re-releasing. Nothing seems to be working-- only one downloaded dino has begun to eat from a trough, while all dinos tamed on Scorched are doing just fine.

    Has anyone ever experienced this? Is there any way to work around it?
