Mossms work in environments. In exchange for their hard work, they earn resources. Resources can be exchanged for baby Mossms or used to buy more environments.

Mossms at Work

Different kinds of environments help mossms produce different kinds of resources:

  • Slack comes from rest and relaxing
  • Blossms from plant farming
  • Zip from exercising
  • Teq comes from high technology and other glowy things
  • Lux comes from participating in refined culture, luxurious things

When your mossms are in an environment, they're producing one of these resources. You can then use the resources to breed or to buy more environments.

Each starter kit comes with one nursery environment and one or two adult environments. Only babies can use nursery environments, and only adults can use adult environments. The environments that come with your starter kit produce the Slack resource when your Mossms are working in them.

  • Baby Mossms can work in nursery environments but produce at only half the rate of adult Mossms
  • Mossms kept in inventory do not earn resources
  • When the babies grow up, they won't be able to use their nursery environments any more so put a couch or something nearby. Otherwise they will just stand still.
