Title: [1.2] Megafauna (v1.4.3) - More cenozoic beasts! - (10.10.2020 - Update #8)
Post by: Spino on July 15, 2017, 05:56:23 PM
Megafauna v1.4.3 by Spino

There's a simple official wiki now: http://megafaunarimworld.wikia.com

No longer requires extra patches to be compatible with A Dog Said! (https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=29310.0) Also compatible with Giddy-up! (https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=37323.0)
(http://i.imgur.com/6VnW18M.png)

Welcome! This is my first mod ever for Rimworld and if I don't end up being a mega-sloth (badumtss), not my last one either!
Please do inform me if you find any bugs etc.

Description:
Thanks to the wonders of today's technology, the small group of scientists that was previously known for bringing the Megatherium--
Uh, I mean, the Megasloth back to life, was able to make the Megafauna Project a reality!
This time around, they were able to recreate 38 different species of animals that used to inhabit planet Earth thousands to millions years ago.
...Was that a wise move? Who cares! Now we can all feast our eyes on those glorious beasts as they will slowly inevitably turn all the ecosystems we know upside-down!

Features:
38 new species of animals, all able to spawn naturally in different biomes:
- Arthropleura,
- Doedicurus,
- Daeodon,
- Gigantopithecus,
- Paraceratherium,
- Titanis,
- Titanoboa,
- Woolly Mammoth,
- Elasmotherium,
- Smilodon,
- Chalicotherium,
- Megaloceros,
- Procoptodon,
- Megalania,
- Gomphotaria,
- Diprotodon,
- Short-faced Bear,
- Dinocrocuta,
- Sivatherium,
- Andrewsarchus,
- Dinornis,
- Macrauchenia,
- Quinkana,
- Deinotherium,
- Aurochs,
- Megalochelys,
- Palaeeudyptes,
- Josephoartigasia,
- Gigantophis,
- Meganeura,
- Zygolophodon,
- Platybelodon,
- Purussaurus,
- Uintatherium,
- Pulmonoscorpius,
- Dinopithecus,
- Castoroides,
- Enhydriodon.

These animals are quite rare, and should be a good challenge to either tame or slay.
A lot of them can also be used as pack animals for a caravan (with paraceratherium being your new best caravan buddy!).
Wooly mammoth, elasmotherium, and josephoartigasia are shearable, and arthropleura, titanis, titanoboa, megalania, dinornis, quinkana, megalochelys, palaeeudyptes, gigantophis, meganeura, and purussaurus do lay eggs. Sivatherium, macrauchenia, aurochs cows, and uintatherium are milkable - sivatherium's milk is very nutritious and quite valuable!

Megafauna will automatically detect and patch both A Dog Said... by SpoonShortage (https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=29310.0) and Giddy-up! by Roolo (https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=37323.0), so make sure to make it load after those mods.

Available languages:
- English,
- Polish.

So how aggressive are these guys, comparing them to like a cougar or fox? The most dangerous one seems like the Boa. Looks to be a nice mod though, already added waiting for them to appear.

IIRC, Combat Extended or one of those mods messes with creatures and needs a compatibility patch for new ones. If that's true, can you make that happen? Good work on the creatures, by the way!

Titanoboa, Titanis, and Entelodont are set to predators, and yes, the Titanoboa is probably the most dangerous - since I couldn't add any special attacks for it, I just used the ones that are already available in the game, and so, this snake bites. It did kill one colonist instantly when I was testing the mod, as it's powerful enough to bite off humans' limbs in a single hit, so be careful :b

I am waiting for them to show up too, they are really beautiful.
Thanks, glad you think so  ;D

Thanks, I'll test it later today and see if there are any conflicts that I have the ability to fix!

As far as feedback goes, I've not got them yet. It's been awhile, I assume they're biome restricted, by the looks, maybe most are Jungle?

CE doesn't mess with spawn rates, it only affects things if you go into combat with a mod-added animal. The github wiki also has detailed instructions on all the stuff that goes into making modded animals CE-compatible (I imagine these things would have astronomical melee crit rates).

For those who don't know what is what. I've also photoshopped the entolodont's makeup, since it is restricted to a figurine in a game.

Here are the biomes the animals can spawn in:
Arthropleura - Temperate Forest / Tropical Rainforest / Arid Shrubland
Doedicurus - Temperate Forest / Tropical Rainforest / Desert / Extreme Desert / Arid Shrubland / Boreal Forest / Tundra
Entelodont - Temperate Forest / Tropical Rainforest / Desert / Arid Shrubland / Boreal Forest / Tundra
Gigantopithecus - Temperate Forest / Tropical Rainforest / Desert / Arid Shrubland / Boreal Forest / Tundra
Paraceratherium - Temperate Forest / Tropical Rainforest / Desert / Arid Shrubland / Boreal Forest / Tundra
Titanis - Temperate Forest / Tropical Rainforest / Arid Shrubland
Titanoboa - Tropical Rainforest
Wooly mammoth - Temperate Forest / Arid Shrubland / Boreal Forest / Tundra / Ice Sheet

Do keep in mind that their spawn chances are somewhat small for the sake of balance.

Hmm, do I need a new save file perhaps? I'm in the Arid Shrubs, as far as I know not one of them has popped up. I realize these are probably on the thrumbo side of rare, but if that is the case wouldn't the chances be greater with these many more creatures?

So they may not have showed up in my map but I can buy eggs. This was either the dumbest idea or the smartest idea I've had.
I also just realized I have two people named Tater & Wedge  ;)

Giant Combat Dodos. I tamed 2 Myself.  But I turned the animal density up another mod.

The only wee beasties missing for now are the snake, the monkey and the handbag.

IMO predator spawn needs to be lowered a bit, I have 3 Titanis and 3 Entelodonts on my map that have a tendency of getting ever so closer to my base and keep killing all the big animals.
Other than that the mod is great, the sprites look amazing, although the Gigantopithecus looks a bit silly sliding around, a lot sillier than most things in vanilla since most [all?] animals don't have visible legs.

This looks like a predator/prey balance, where they eat everything and then starve to death. Since there is a spawn rate for the prey, an ideal arrangement would be a spawn rate for predators that puts just enough of them into play to not starve to death.

Megabeasts have their wight set wrong. I.E. Paraceratherium weighs only 10 (!) kilos. BTW he gives you insane amount of meat (1700)! And his dead corpse weighs 0 wich makes farming them off-colony too much profitable.

Also I think that their leathers should be rebalanced. Right now they have the same stats as basic (hare, etc) leathers. I guess it should be kinda tougher at least!

In my game they weight 700kg, dunno about their corpses, though, my tribe is nowhere strong enough to take one of them down.
Totally agree about the leathers, the ones I've seen all had no special stats, IIRC, just different colors.

Does this work with the hard working animals mod? or do none of these beasts have advanced inteligence?
The gorilla, boar, mammoth and Paraceratherium have advanced intelligence, the rest has intermediate.

I wound up going to check myself and set the Arthro to advanced in my copy. Very unrealistic I know, but I have the image in my head of giant centipedes with a pack pack on and I needed to make it a thing.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll consider them whenever I get to work on an update for this!

Other than that the mod is great, the sprites look amazing, although the Gigantopithecus looks a bit silly sliding around, a lot sillier than most things in vanilla since most [all?] animals don't have visible legs.
The spawn rates of all the animals will be lowered in the next update. Also, there actually are a few animals in Rimworld with visible legs and I wanted to give the Gigantopithecus a bit of a resemblance to the regular Rim-monkeys.

Megabeasts have their wight set wrong. I.E. Paraceratherium weighs only 10 (!) kilos. BTW he gives you insane amount of meat (1700)! And his dead corpse weighs 0 wich makes farming them off-colony too much profitable.

As @moonra said, Paraceratherium weighs 700 kg, are you using any other mods that could mess with something like this?
It's also supposed to give you a lot of meat as it was an animal bigger than a Tyrannosaurus, but I guess 1700 might be a bit of an overkill, lol. Will be lowered in an update.
And oh yeah, right now only the mammoth wool has unique stats because it's way harder to obtain than all the leathers, but I suppose I could make their stats better when I lower the spawn rates of the animals themselves.

The Snake is beautiful too big, it just looks weird next to every other creature in the game, even without comparing the sizes.

Here is a picture of a Titanoboa with 350kg and an Elephant with 280kg . The Elephant has nearly the same weight ( I think they are on the light side anyway with barely 300kg. ) But the Snake looks like it would swallow the Elephant whole.
It is nearly as big as the Paraceratherium which has about 700kg

I wound up going to check myself and set the Arthro to advanced in my copy. Very unrealistic I know, but I have the image in my head of giant centipedes with a pack pack on and I needed to make it a thing.

How would I go about changing this myself? I had 2 Titanoboas self-tame and wanted to mod their intelligence up to adv. ^.^

I've had several trade caravans come by with megafauna in the group, but they're never for sale. I can sell them mine, but I can't buy them back. Trade ships seem to work as normal. I disabled all my other mods on a new game and still have this happen.

Anyone else have this issue?

I suppose that's why base game pack animals aren't also wild. Any way I can keep them from showing up? I'd prefer they bring animals I can actually buy. I think I've seen one bear in the last 4 or 5 exotics, while the rest were from this mod.

I know that. I guess I phrased that poorly. I mean the fact that animals with a high "wildness" percentage are the ones that show up in exotic caravans. The animals from this mod are pack animals, but they're also 80% wildness trait. Which is why they show up with them.

Actually, this is quite easy to patch. Just edit getTraderCaravanRole so it would sell pack animals without a load.

from
Code: [Select]
if (p.kindDef.RaceProps.packAnimal)
{
return TraderCaravanRole.Carrier;
}
to
Code: [Select]
if (p.kindDef.RaceProps.packAnimal && p.inventory.innerContainer.Any)
{
return TraderCaravanRole.Carrier;
}

I'm too old and lazy to make a proper mod myself, though... (but I've checked it by direct code modifying, it works)

Oh, and every time I tried to complete the trade it deleted one but didn't do the trade, only when I had no more shells.
Yes, there's an issue with selling the shells right now but I'm currently working on an update and I believe I did manage to fix it already!

The Snake is beautiful too big, it just looks weird next to every other creature in the game, even without comparing the sizes.

Here is a picture of a Titanoboa with 350kg and an Elephant with 280kg . The Elephant has nearly the same weight ( I think they are on the light side anyway with barely 300kg. ) But the Snake looks like it would swallow the Elephant whole.
It is nearly as big as the Paraceratherium which has about 700kg
I don't think Titanoboa is too big (though I may make it a tad smaller in the next update), it's just that its weight is set wrong. I did have to set the weights of animals somewhat blindly and naturally, I didn't get them right in all cases, hah.
Title: Re: [A17] Megafauna (v1.0) - More cenozoic beasts!
Post by: SpaceDorf on July 24, 2017, 02:08:53 PM
I wasn't talking about the weight actually.
I used weight as an extra point of comparison, because it looked like a decent guess at how big you imagined the Titanoboa.

My real issue is with the size of the sprite in comparison to the elephant.
With the slightly different art style this is the point where I got stuck in the uncanny valley ..
the boa just looks to massive. every other creature from your pack is somehow fitting ( I have only now found a monkey, so I am not 100% sure about that )

Before I become a sinner myself by talking bullshit .. I asked my old friend mr. google who told me to ask ms. wikipedia.

Bodysize Comparison by weight :
       
Arthropleura      : length from 0.3 to 2.3 metres (0.98 to 7.55 ft) and a width up to 50 centimetres
Titanis      : It was 2.5 metres (8.2 ft) tall and weighed approximately 150 kilograms (330 lb)
Entolodonts   : up to 2.1 m (6.9 ft) at the shoulder and a weight of 421 kg (930 lb)
Gigantopithecus : up to 3 m (9.8 ft), and weighing up to 540 kg (1,190 lb)
Titanoboa            : Total length around 12.8 m (42 ft) and weighed about 1,135 kg (2,500 lb)
Doedicurus       : a height of 1.5 metres (4.9 ft) and an overall length of around 4 metres (13 ft). Doedicurus could reach a 
                           mass of approximately 1,910 to 2,370 kilograms
afr. Elephant      : 2.2–4.0 m (7–13 ft) tall at the shoulder and weigh 2,160–6,048 kg (4,762–7–13,330 lb) ( female/male )
ind. Elephant   : about 2.5 m to 3 m high at the shoulder, and rarely exceeding 5 tonnes
Wooly Mammoth: The largest known species reached heights in the region of 4 m (13.1 ft) at the shoulder and weights of up
                           to 8 tonnes while exceptionally large males may have exceeded 12 tonnes               
Paraceratherium : shoulder height was about 4.8 metres (15.7 feet), and the length about 7.4 metres (24.3 feet). is
                           estimated to have been 15 to 20 tonnes (33,000 to 44,000 lb)


okay .. either accepting, that elephants are way to small and light on the Rim and maybe a genetic rebirth of the dwarf elephant for better use in space ...  or calculating with 400 RimKg being about 2-6 metric tons .. yeah .. uhm ...
Thanks alot Tynan ...

loook I added a picture :
--- edit ---
the red blob next to the human and snake is the arthropleura .. which is a lot smaller than I first thought ..
I forgot the Chocobo and the Wrecking Ball .. but those where all right in size ..

Paraceratherium has quite high chance to attack on tame attempt, more than some predators. Not very "gentle".

- Insect, the model is your choice
- eats ONLY rotten and bones
- resist barely any temperature
- spawn as local fauna in any biome
- leaves if starving
- chance to fight back
- any health/strengt values you think would fit (i suggest small numbers as it is an insect)
- drops insect meat


i would appreciate this in my games

Arthropleuras lays eggs, but they are never fertilized.

Titanis eggs are very expensive, even if not fertilized, but as food are no better than any other eggs.

Well yeah, I didn't set their weights to be scientifically correct but more or less proportionally correct to the animals that were already in the game.

1. No, it is not, but I've fixed it already. Turned out it's because I had accidentally set its foodtype to "VegetarianAnimal" instead of "VegetarianRoughAnimal", thanks for pointing it out.

2. Well, story-like descriptions and game mechanics are two different things, and I wanted to make taming of paraceratherium at least a tad risky, as it was designed to be one of the best animals in this mod.

I appreciate the suggestion but this mod is supposed to be about animals that have actually existed, and not fictional ones, sorry, man.

Arthropleuras lays eggs, but they are never fertilized.

Titanis eggs are very expensive, even if not fertilized, but as food are no better than any other eggs.
Both of those issues will be gone in the next release as I've decided to remove unfertilized eggs of all the animals in the mod altogether. However, I also want to point out that even unfertilized eggs of something like a terror bird should be worth more than chicken eggs. Even if, as food, they are worth just as much as them - it's an egg laid by an extinct species brought back to life, like come on.

So much money I can't make  :'(

Them being predators is intended + there already is an omnivorous predator in vanilla Rimworld - the grizzly bear, and we already know how that guy behaves when it comes to searching for food.

Glad you like it, and well, I'm the one who had made the patch, and by saying "by spoonshortage" I just meant that ADS itself was made by Spoon, probably worded it in a bit confusing of a manner, heh.

Thank you, good sir :D

Do I need a new map for the update? I'm getting a lot of errors after adding it and just can't load a save that had the old one.
The errors are caused by the existence of unfertilized megafauna eggs in your save that are no longer present in this release of the mod. Here's how to fix it, and get your save back to work:
Code: [Select]
1. remove megafauna 1.1 from your game,
2. download and install the old version of the mod right here:
mediafire.com/file/tw08gci70pwf0h7/megafauna.zip
3. load your save,
4. remove all the unfertilized eggs from your world, preferably using the "destroy" command from the dev menu (which you can enable in game's options),
5. save your egg-free world,
6. delete the old version of the mod,
7. download the new one again and see if it works.

Question:

I had traders bringing in one of them but they won't sell it to me. I thought usually animals other than the pack animals they bring will be up for sale?

As it stands, in Alpha 17, without mods like Animals Logic, mobs defined as 'pack animals' will not be buyable from traders, no matter if they are actually carrying anything or not. This is why you can't buy animals like Muffalos/Camels/Alpacas from traders that come to you on foot.

Updated once again!
Changelog:
   - fixed problems with breeding arthropleura (hopefully...?),
   - reduced meat/leather yield of almost all the animals,
   - finally added the max body sizes of prey the predators will hunt,
   - slight changes as to what biomes the animals can spawn in,
   - changed entelodont's name to daeodon as it is more specific and therefore more fitting.
   - oh, and you know, added 5 more animals.

Enjoy!

I still think those Paraceratherium (The giraffe looking one) are a bit overpowered in terms of meat amount. I got a manhunter pack of those and i was pretty much set for 3+ years of meat without doing any other hunting lol.

How can you increase the spawn rate for these animals? I actually kinda liked it when there were 3 Titanis and 4 Paraceratherium on my map on average- it made things dangerous.

You can edit the percentages in the two .xml files found in the folder "ThingDefs_Races".
Use CTRL+F to find "<wildBiomes>". Every animal is given a set of biomes along with percentage spawn rates associated with them. This is Arthropleura's, for example:
Code: [Select]
  <wildBiomes>
<AridShrubland>0.002</AridShrubland>
<TropicalRainforest>0.01</TropicalRainforest>
<TemperateForest>0.004</TemperateForest>
  </wildBiomes>
Just alter the numbers however you want, save the file and you're good to go  :)

Very much enjoying this mod. Well-emulated art style, great variety and lovely choice of critters, suitable difficulty in killing/obtaining (kite around for hours with a team for most big meat animals; can't just shoot til downed then drag home for easy taming because you can't patch the hundred wounds before they bleed out; high % manhunter chance - I cackled then sweat a little as I saw I succeeded the 3.8% chance to tame a daeodon, then noticed the fail rate had been 10%).

If you're up for it, a patch to spawn a few (the mammalian predators especially) in Rikiki's cave biome would be sweet.

Minor issue: the folders aren't inside of a "megafauna" folder like most mods do, so if you just "Extract here" you get a bunch of folders inside the RW Mods folder.

In other words: put your folders inside a folder so my folder doesn't get full of folders.

I love this mod dearly, so I've gone through and hacked together a rough B18 update along with an A Dog Said patch (now using xpath for my convenience) and decided to share it with all you lovely people. You can find both mods in a zip at this mega link:

https://mega.nz/#!NHYwARpJ!BMK1kmLcLajlL7WUX3RWCDlketz670ONkXWHee7Kx2s
(old link broke somehow? fixed now)

This is a very rough unofficial update that may not be compatible with future official Megafauna releases, so please bear that in mind.

After a bit too long, it's time for an update!

Changelog:
         - updated to be compatible with Rimworld Beta 18,
         - no longer requires an additional patch to be compatible with A Dog Said..., it will now automatically detect it and patch all the necessary stuff in,
         - also comes with a built-in patch for Giddy-up!,

         - daeodon, titanis, titanoboa, smilodon, procoptodon, gomphotaria, short-faced bear, and dinocrocuta are no longer pack animals (can't be used to carry stuff in caravans),
         - very minor tweaks to a few animals in regards to their body size and meat/leather yield,
         - some of the animals can now spawn in the new swamp-type biomes (titanoboa's no longer exclusive to the tropical rainforest!),
         - some of the older animals such as arthropleura and doedicurus now have their own body types instead of using unfitting vanilla ones,
         - some of the older animals won't be sold by traders anymore, in order to make obtaining them feel more special, those being: paraceratherium, titanoboa, elasmotherium, megalania, gomphotaria, and short-faced bear.
         - added 4 more animals.

I really wish this mod would get support from Genetic Rim. The author has some serious art talent, and is one of my favorites. Mechanoids Extraordinaire is another knock-out success in the art department, and I highly recommend it as well.

And seriously that titanboa is fucking awesome. Reminds me so much of Conan the Barbarian.

So I've yet to see a single species spawn naturally from this mod after ~7 hours of playing.
The only time I see them is during the migration event, in which I see them every time.

Is the spawn chance for these creatures really that small?
I am playing on temperate forest.

You can see the chances for the creatures to spawn in their xml defs. And to answer your question, yes. Some of these are very, very rare creatures. I guess you could go as far as to consider them almost "legendary" in the same sense that the thrumbo is a "legendary" creature, yet these are much rarer than a thrumbo.

If I am remembering correctly, normal creatures will have something like a .2 to .5 chance of spawning per biome, or something similar. While some creatures from this mod might have a .002 chance of spawning. Of course, I could be off by a decimal location here or there, but I think that's the jist behind the rarity of some of these guys. That's also what will make finding them all the more exciting! ;D

Small update.
Many people have actually reported that they have played with this mod for days and days without seeing a single Megafauna animal spawn naturally. So I tested it myself and got the exact same results - that's when I realised that while the creatures were indeed supposed to be quite rare, the last time I updated the spawn chances, I made them about 5-8 times lower than I originally intended, whoops.
Naturally, you can download an updated version of the mod from the first post in this topic.

Since it's been requested a good few times, I also took a few hours to create a simple wiki, where one can quickly check where any of the animals spawn, how much meat and leather butchering them yields, and so on:

--> megafaunarimworld.wikia.com (http://megafaunarimworld.wikia.com) <--

Thanks for the feedback and all the suggestions for more animals! :]

So I know that the predators were really deadly and dangerous, but how Am I supposed to tame any animal in this mod without losing limbs/colonists? I tried to tame 3 Daedon, failed, and they got manhunter. They killed 5 of my dogs and 2 colonist got minor injuries 1 lost a foot. A Quinkana have a 30% chance of getting manhunter and it has 8.62 DPS, how am I supposed to tame that ?
Also, I never ever saw a trader selling any Megafauna animal, just mounting on them cause Giddy Up.
Its all this intended ?

Well... rarity is a pro here. I always have a sick level in handling animals in my colony, still messing with some kinds. At least I managed to make a "Hell Cavalry" to stop the catastrophe if such happens ;)

Did you ever saw some safari movies or documations about zoo's ?
Does the trainer/doc go alone to that animals ?

If you realy want to tame that kind of dangerous animal, you shouldn't handle this automatical.
You need manualy create a party, and let your other pawn's escort the tamer.
Other mod with nonlethal weapons (pain stick,pain gun,shocker) or abilities (Vampire,werwolf,Jedi,Rim of magic) might help too.

Is it normal to have a bunch of these spawn on map creation? Started with about 10 megafauna on a 225 map. Was pretty funny to open the ancient danger early and aggro daeodons onto the mechs.

I think you just got "lucky" with the percentages, though I have to admit that daeodons probably do spawn in groups a tad too big for what they are. It is the animal that most urgently needs some rebalancing.

The predators very quickly clean their local part of the map, and end up attacking colonists much more frequently than vanilla animals. For example it is common for a few wolves to stay around the edges of the map eating squirrels etc indefinitely, whereas megafauna predators are easier to just kill on spawn. So the mega predator hunger rate might be a bit high. The vanilla predators' ratio of hunger rate to body size is about 4.5, whereas the ones in this mod are about 2.

I think megaloceros antlers might be missing a mass. They are assigned 1kg, which seems to be the default. Whereas most of the other animal body parts in the mod are 4kg.

I noticed the short face bear uses the same leather as the grizzly bear, which is very weak compared to other leathers in the mod.

As for taming, I haven't succeeded yet, but I think the only practical way is to rescue them and hope for a tend chance tame. And then one or two attempts afterwards while they are still weak, but after that just execute them. It's the logical conclusion when the manhunter chance to tame chance ratio is around 1 or above, like the Thrumbo. Some of the ratios are insane though. I saw a 45%, and by the time you eventually tame one, you will have killed enough that it would have been easier to buy several copies from exotic traders.

Been playing with Megafauna for a while now. I love this mod. One issue I'm running into however is having any tamed omnivores or carnivores. If I leave them to fend for themselves at all, I look up a season or so later and half of the map is devoid of wildlife. Now I'm sure the Daedon (for instance) needs to eat a lot. But that seems like an awful lot more than is reasonable balance wise. How do you keep them fed if you plan on raising a small combat force of large animals like that?

These creatures are really awesome and some are meant to be feared.

Having one for the colony allowing it to help your caravans or beat the crap out of those raiders, or even hunting one of them for a lot meat while risking danger.

I remember he said that the mod author might come back when Rimworld is released out of early access, so i may still have hopes for these creatures coming back... :D

It depends on what kinda compatibility you mean.
As in, are there new animal hybrids? Obviously not.
Can you extract DNA from megafauna animals or perform any other GeneticRim-exclusive operations on them? Nope, unless GeneticRim features some sort of default compatibility with animal mods.
Will using the two mods result in a conflict/crash? Haven't tested it but from what I can tell, there should be no conflicts.

There already is a patch, you can find it on steam. It is for B18, but you can find the 1.0 version on the author's github linked in the description.

Many of those suggestions are very similar to animals already in the mod, we already have a large, flightless bird, we already have a giant otter, we already have a giant croc, etc. The big zebra would be cool, though, specially with Giddy Up.
Also, that big rabbit is freakin' weird, it looks like a bad photoshop!

I've loaded the mod and unfortunately, only some of the Megafauna animals have descriptions. Not sure if it's a mod conflict or not, just says that there is an

"Exception filling window for Verse.Dialog_infoCard: System.Invalid.CastException: Cannot cast from source type to destination type."

Kinda annoying, as without the descriptions, for example, I couldn't tell that one of the giant Black Hive insects throws fireballs at you.

Since this mod is used by many people and none report this issue yet, it must be a mod conflict.

Try at first to move the mod at the end of the modlist and when that don't help nearly on top after the libaries (hugslib,jecstools,alienframework).
If that don't help either, a logfile would be helpful, hugslib log prefered (green "Share logs" button), but standard logfile + modconfig.xml works too.

For some reason the only animal spawning is the daeodon while playing in boreal forest. I tried it with 8 different colony all in boreal forest and it's still the only animal spawning from megafauna. I even edited the spawn rate to 0.001 for the current colony but nothing changed, only daeodon.

I don't see any Megafauna CE patch, where do you got it ?

alvarojsr,
with the new Rimworld release there is a small issue with Modcheck. Until mod that use the modcheck.dll like this mod, you should use Modcheck as mod and place it at the top of your modlist.
https://github.com/Nightinggale/ModCheck
or use the workshop one.

Tiny update. Extremely late but hey, better late than never.

Updated the mod to 1.1, for now with no A Dog Said... compatibility - waiting for a ModCheck update.
It can still be used alongside ADS, obviously, it's just that you won't be able to perform ADS operations on Megafauna animals.

There should be no more errors.

EDIT:
Updated once again, ADS compatibility is back. There were some major errors that should hopefully be fixed now.
