In order to start your monkeys, you first have to enter the Mimic Mode. Mimic Mode essentially makes monkeys copy whatever it is that you’re doing. So there are a few things that you can train a monkey to do. To make them do it, simply enter the mimic mode and do the task that you want your monkey to do and it will keep on doing that until you say not to. In order to enter the Mimic mode, all you have to is press the Q button. From there, choose a monkey that you want to train and then click on the Teach option. You will now see a banana icon over the monkey’s head, which means that he is in mimic mode. At this point, anything you do will train the monkey to mimic the same thing until you say not to. After putting a monkey into the mimic mode, choose from the following training options and do that in the game in order to train your monkey to do it.
By training a monkey to do the gathering tasks for you, it will manage and take care of collecting everything that’s on the ground.

To train a monkey for gathering, simply put him into the mimic mode and pick up an item yourself and deposit into a chest.
Harvesting is a way to cut down trees and resources that contain anything that can be harvested in the game. For this, pass a hitting weapon, Axe, or Pickaxe to the monkey you want to train to harvest. Then, enter into the mimic mode and go about to cut down trees are anything that can be harvested in the game.
Training a monkey delivery will make him carry resources to unfinished blueprints. So if you have blueprints for a new room or structure but it hasn’t been built yet, the delivery monkey will scavenge for the resources and bring them. To train a monkey delivery, all you have to do is enter the mimic mode, pick up material, and deliver it to an unfinished blueprint.
Combat is another task that you can train a monkey for. In fact, you can build an army of fighting monkeys that will protect you from evil. To train a monkey combat, you first have to hand over a weapon of your choice. They can use any weapon you give them for combat. Then, enter into the mimic mode and go about to hit an enemy.
