Pauses the old Grendel Mother and places a new one on top of her that vends up to nine multi-coloured breedable grendels. You will need to have a Grendel World or use the Grendel Friendly cob for them to be able to breed though.

Advanced Breeders Device
 

 
September
2004
This device is all you will ever need when breeding creatures. It scans the current creature, if it is too young or recovering from a pregnancy it does nothing but tell you as much.

If the norn is an adult male it injects it with sex drive and testosterone.

If it is an adult, non-pregnant female it injects it with oestrogen and sex drive. Lastly if the norn is a pregnant female, it extracts the baby.

Using this cob you can make norns of any breed. The genomes used for banana, fluffy, horse, PMN, forest, Ron and golden Santa norns were provided by Cyberlife. Slot 3 is the Santa project norns, slot 8 is the wood norns and slot 9 is the grorns. To see the breeds correctly you will need to install the appropriate breed pack whether it is a  third party or official one. It requires the Shief2 to be installed as it occupies this new room.

Advanced Breeders Kit
 
 
January
2004
Improved version of the set of cobs created by Lee Gaiteri.

I added my own Abortion, CSection2, Egg Booster, Egg Tester and Pregnancy Test cobs.

I also added the No-Eggs live birth cob, creator unknown.

August 2008: Added Egg Finder, which moves all norn eggs to the house.

Hatching norn 
Egg Opener
 

 
January
2004
A new addition to the Advanced Breeding Kit. This cob will force any eggs existing in the world to expel their occupants as baby norns.
Useful for those rare damaged eggs that cannot hatch.

Any eggs that are "dud" and don't contain embryos will be tactfully removed.
Egg gender 
Egg Tester and Gender
 

 
January
2004
Egg Tester checks the sex of unhatched norns, Egg Gender is a cob that you can use to choose the sex of unhatched babies.

Injecting it makes all eggs in the world hatch as males, removing it makes them all female.
Pregnancy Test 
Pregnancy Test
 

 
January
2004
A simple cob to detect pregnancy in norns, it also detects if a creature is recovering from a pregnancy by monitoring blood gonadotrophin.
New egg 
C-Section 2
 

 
January
2004
An adaptation of the C-section cob by Lee Gaiteri (LummoxJR), instead of extracting the foetus from the pregnant creature in the form of an egg, it removes the newborn baby instead. Note that this gives the baby less time to process instincts.
  Macro Gregoid
V1

Version 2

July
2003

 

August
2011

This warty egg sac creates Macro Grendels. Macro grendels are a third of the size of regular Grendels, and this particular breed has dramatic sex-linked pigmentation. You will need to install the Macro Grendel Pack first, or the grendels will not look right.

The Basement should be installed first for it to work correctly, as this is the home of the Macro Grendel Gregoid. V2 fixes a few bugs and makes it work automatically to maintain their population.
Abortion 
Abortion
 

 
May
2003
A simple cob to remove any foetus within the selected norn.
If the norn is not in fact pregnant, it will tell you so.
Egg boost 
Egg Booster
 

 
May
2003
An adaptation of the Egg Starter cob. Instead of just making paused eggs begin hatching, it makes all eggs become fully grown and start hatching.

Fixed Version of The Pill
 
May
2003
The original version of the pill was released as a faulty trial version, I have managed to fix it. Once every 60 seconds it scans each norn in turn, and if they are immortal (very high health)  then it injects them with gonadotrophin and sex drive decrease to effectively sterilize them.

As such it cannot differentiate between norns that have high health due to a cob /  infusion / program or an actual immortality mutation.

Consequently this cob is incompatible with certain functions of programs such as BORG, or "high health" cobs and infusions that raise the health above 80%.
