One of the most convenient methods to acquire extra dwellers in Fallout Shelter is by producing babies. Surely you can use the radio room and send out calls, but mating is both quicker and easier.
In this guide, I will specifically talk about how to mate with people of the opposite sex and produce babies to increase your dweller count:
How to have Babies in Fallout Shelter
First thing that you need to know is that babies are conceived in the living quarters. Once you have decided the parents, make sure that their charm level is identical – a large difference in charm level does not work well.
After everything is set, drag the parents into the living quarters. You can read the messages over their heads to see the progress, but in case of similar charms, the deed will be done in about 30 minutes.
One of the best things about Fallout Shelter is that polygamy is acceptable. You do not need more than one man to make all the women in your vault pregnant.
Once the deed is done, remove the pregnant woman from the living quarters and assign her old job to her – same with the man. Also note that it takes a couple of real life hours for a baby to be born.
Pregnant women can do all their tasks effectively except using weapons and drinking. Women in this condition run away from danger and hide themselves somewhere.
Another important thing to note is that you need to free up some space in your vault before the baby is conceived. In the opposite case, the babies will remain in their mothers’ wombs for indefinite period of time.
Moreover, the happiness level of pregnant women is always at 100% and train as usual!
You should also note that related persons (even if of opposite sex) can’t conceive babies – I mean, we are not talking about Jamie and Cersei Lannister or Craster here. You can also name a child to have an idea about his or her parentage.
Despite all the good things, there are some things to consider. One of the most important things to bear in mind is birthing boom. If you are running low on resources, you should not have all your women pregnant.
And yes, lastly remember that dragging two persons of the opposite sex in the radio room will immediately put them to sex.
This is pretty much all you need to know about producing babies in Fallout Shelter. If there is something else you would like to know, do make sure to let us know in the Comments Section below.
