So I've been playing Fallout Shelter for 2 days now and was wondering if the clothing on dwellers affect the baby's S.P.E.C.I.A.L. For instance if both of the parents have average S.P.E.C.I.A.L. (like everything is 1 or 2) but when I put a certain clothing (for example) intelligence and perception goes up. Will the baby have a higher chance of having one or both of those stats higher?
Based on some testing in this reddit post, the stat increases from clothing do not seem to affect the inheritance.
I am late on this topic but figured I'd add some more context. As being already answered in short, no clothing doesn't affect a baby's stats. Only the actual stats from parents will be passed on to the offspring.
In addition, it seems to be a random pick between fathers or mothers max stat that is inherited. I have been playing for quite some time now and 1 out of 10 babies have inherited the fathers max stat in my playthrough in which I do not intertwine relations (same mother/father for all kids in specific family).
Keep in mind this is 2022 updated client.
