In this guide, we will take a look at the ranch and see how we can automate it with easy watering routes and more!

Part 0: Analysing the ranch

Necessary ranch things


  • Every type of slime is needed.
  • A warp hub, to reach extractors in all areas.
  • Drones for automation.
  • A route to water each of said drones easily.
  • At least four coops.
  • [Optional] At least one silo.
  • [Optional] No largos, for trading purposes.
  • [Optional] Each slime’s favorite food.
  • [Optional] Party slimes!

Expansion analysation


  • The Docks and Mochi’s Manor have free ponds, so puddle slimes should go there.
  • The Overgroth has free meat, so tangle slimes can eat freely there.
  • Ogden’s Retreat and the Overgrowth have free crops.
  • The space just outside the ranch is the best place for a warp hub.

Ranch plot stats


  • Main Ranch: 8 Plots
  • The Grotto: 5 Plots
  • The Overgrowth: 4 Plots + Hen Hen + Pogofruit + Carrots
  • The Docks: 4 Plots + Pond
  • The Lab: 5 Plots
  • Ogden’s Retreat: 6 Plots + Pogofruit + Carrots
  • Mochi’s Manor: 5 Plots + Pond
  • Victor’s Workshop: 4 Plots


Part 1: Coops, Fire, Tangle, and Saber.


Each expansion can hold two drones.
Advanced drones can hold up to two tasks, Task 1 being prioritized.
Drones should generally all be the same, unless specified.

  • 1, Feed slimes; 2, Sell plorts
  • 1, Refine plorts; 2, Sell plorts

Tangle and Saber slimes


  • As stated before, tangle slimes can eat freely in The Overgrowth, so they should be there.
  • Saber slimes must be in largo form, but we want to keep pure slimes for trading!
  • We can make a separate corral for Tangle-Saber largos so that they can also eat freely.
  • Make sure that the Tangles and Tangle-Sabers are located when Hen Hens roam to often.

Fire slimes and Coops

Ogden’s Retreat is great for coops, as it can also keep an extra slime or two.

  • Coops should hold: Roostros; Stony Hens; Briar Hens; Painted Hens.
  • Put two incinerators for the other plots.
  • The fire slimes can eat the ashes of naturally generating fruits and veggies.

Ogden’s retreat drone settings:

  • 1, Burn veggies; 2, Burn Fruits
  • 1, Refine plorts; 2, Sell plorts
