Jurassic World Evolution: Everything You Need To Know About Contracts
Contracts can be a lucrate source of income in Jurassic World Evolution, here's what to look for and how to profit from contracts.
Jurassic World Evolution allows you to build your own Dinosaur park that will hopefully avoid the doomed fate of previous ones. There are numerous aspects that you need to master in order to have a successful park, it's not solely about having the most Dinosaur breeds as it's also about running a profitable business.
Contracts are one of the most important aspects of the game that you need to understand because they can be crucial sources of income when you need them the most. Also, many of the contracts involve you learning the ropes of how to run a successful business.
What Are Contracts?
Contracts are essentially tasks that you can pick up throughout the game. Each Contract will have a different set of tasks or requirements that you need to fulfill in order to complete the Contract and earn the reward for it. The rewards from them can vary from money to unlocking new items to use in your park. Some tasks will be easy such as selling a Dinosaur but some will be more complex and take a little more planning.
Contracts themselves can come from the different divisions operating within your park (Science, Security, and Entertainment), and by completing the Contract, you will earn a reputation with the division that created it. Gaining favor with the divisions will pave the way to you getting perks from them but if you fall out of favor with one, they can cause you problems.
The best thing to do is try to balance out your Contracts between all three.
What Are Time Limited Contracts?
Some Contracts have tasks that need to be completed within a certain time frame. This can be anything from maintaining a certain number of guests in your park for a period of time, this is where the timer will fill up. Alternatively, it can be having no Dinosaurs eating your guests for two minutes and this will have the timer counting down.
Apart from the time requirements, these are no different from normal contracts.
How To Get Contracts
When you are playing through the game, you will organically have contracts offered to you by the different divisions and you can choose to accept or deny them. Don't worry, if you deny a contract then it isn't gone for good and you will be offered it again at a later time.
If you want a new contract but one isn't coming up then you can always request one. You can only have three active contracts at one time, if you have three then you will not be able to request more.
To do this, you will need to press square (for PlayStation Players) to go to your Management Screen:
You need to head down to here, this will take you into the contracts screen:
On this screen, you will be able to see your active contracts.
If you want to request an additional contract then you need to click here:
Then you will be able to choose which division you want the contract to come from. Click your desired one and they will offer you one. However, if you decline the offered contract then you will have to wait a few minutes before you can request another one.
Which Contracts Are The Best?
No one contract is better than another, the contract that is best for you will depend on how you wish to play your game. If you want to gain more favor with the Security division then taking their contracts will be best, but if you want to gain favor with the Science division then theirs will be best.
There are a few key questions you should ask yourself before taking a contract:
- Will it benefit me? - Some contracts will need you to invest a hefty sum into your Park, therefore you should ask yourself if the investment will be worth it for the rewards. If it isn't, then maybe it isn't worth taking for the time being.
- How will it divide the divisions? - Now, the divisions aren't always particularly fond of one another in the game and if you accept a contract from one, it can negatively affect your reputation with the others. When you accept a contract, you will be able to see the effects of it. It will look like this:
- Is it achievable right now? - Sometimes you will be offered contracts with tasks on it that might not be achievable in the given time frame. If you think you will not be able to complete the contract in the required time, then turning it down and waiting for a bit won't hurt.
By asking yourself those questions, you should be able to determine which contracts are the best ones for your park.
