Features List

Welcome to ProntoMart!

Players can find the ProntoMart kiosk located in the Conservatory. Within the shop, players can access Polestar Provisions and Coo-Coo Corner. Polestar Provisions sells the blueprints needed to craft gadgets. Coo-Coo Corner is a daily deals shop where players can purchase deco and functional gadgets, or toys to entertain slimes. Deals will change every in-game day, so make sure to check the shop frequently!

Remember, it’s possible for players to obtain items before getting a blueprint. Make sure you’re carefully exploring Rainbow Island and checking the Comms Station.

New Gadgets and Gadget Variants

More gadgets means more ways to unleash creative and mechanized chaos upon the wiggly inhabitants of Rainbow Island. Along with a whole catalog of brand new gadgets, this update also introduces gadget variants to the world of Slime Rancher 2.

Gadget variants are existing gadgets with a twist – a color, texture, or design variation of an already existing gadget. This will allow players to get creative and further customize their Conservatory. Keep in mind: not all gadgets have variants and variants can be acquired before the base version of a gadget. Try to collect them all!

Players can toggle through variants when a previously placed gadget is selected. Variants can also be viewed in the Fabricator and Slimepedia.
