Planet Zoo recently released a new update that fixed bugs and added improvements to make the game more stable.

Planet Zoo Update 1.6.2

General Bug Fixes and Improvements: Animals
  • Fixed an issue where animals were drifting during lethal fights
  • Fixed an issue where the female Sun Bear would not use the water pool
  • Fixed an issue with the Formosan Black Bear and Grizzly Bear where they were unable to navigate the habitat while climbing
  • Fixed an issue with jump height calculations, resolving occurrences where animals could escape over barriers above their height requirement
  • Fixed an issue where animals would get stuck in place after pouncing on some food enrichment
  • Fixed the tip of the African Penguin beak intersecting with the upper beak
  • Staff will hold onto boxed animals longer when transporting if the destination looks like it's failing, to try and regrab the destination
  • Meerkat holes are now interacted with correctly when the habitat they are located in is changed
  • Fixed stray geometry on the Southern White Rhino tail during defecation
  • Fixed food enrichment items recording the number of uses in the last 12 months
Sandbox Options
  • Added an "Enable staff fleeing" option to sandbox to prevent staff fleeing from dangerous escaped animals too
  • When toggling off 'Enable animal escapes' players will no longer get a notification for escapes, and animals will not enter the escaped state. Instead, they will be boxed if they are without a habitat; or moved back to the gate if they are free to wander too far
  • Disabled notification alerts for overcrowding and fighting when those are toggled off, also stop guests commenting on animal temperature if that is toggled off
  • Re-enabled breakdowns option as it was missing from the sandbox settings

UI: Misc
  • Fixed an issue where large numbers of "Joined a pack" notifications appeared when loading into a zoo
  • Fixed a typo in the US-English zoopedia description for the Sacred Scarab Beetles. Users of the imperial measurement system no longer need to be afraid of 80-foot long Scarab Beetles
  • Fixed an issue where switching tabs with a species search bar filled in would give inconsistent results switching back to the same tab
  • Fixed crash caused by animals trying to drink from a lake which had just been deleted
  • Fixed crash caused by an enrichment object spawner being deleted while it was in the process of resetting itself
  • Fixed crash caused by rapidly placing and deleting enrichment objects
