New dwellers seem to all start with very low starting stats. Is there a way to get new dwellers with higher than normal stats?
There is! Breed with two max-stat dwellers to get them super-babies.
As you notice, this is a level 1 CHILD. The second photo is a super baby combined with a +3 stat pet. The specific details to get these higher than normal stat children are as follows:
"Super" Child Formula
max = (male_total_special + female_total_special - 14) / 126 random_number = random(max / 4, max) if random_number is greater than 0.95 the child will be legendary if random_number is greater than 0.85 the child will be rare otherwise the child will be normal
- Parents' total SPECIAL must be 134 or higher to have a chance at a legendary child.
- Parents' total SPECIAL must be 122 or higher to have a chance at a rare child.
- Two fully maxed out parents (SPECIAL 140) will have a ~6.6% chance of producing a legendary child, and a ~13.3% chance of producing a rare child.
- Two maxed parents will produce a child with an Intelligence proficiency.
