[A17] Wildlife Tab
« on: September 06, 2016, 02:56:05 PM »


    Beaver genocide, done right!


    This small mod adds a new tab to Rimworld, containing a list of all wild animals on the map:



    Clicking on the eye jumps to the corresponding animal without closing the tab, I thought that might be useful.
    The other icons indicate whether an animal is either a manhunter or belongs to an insectoid infestation.


    The mod does not mess with any serialized data, so using it in your existing colony should* be fine. If you encounter any problems, please let me know. Feature requests are also welcome.

    Nice! So it's like Numbers and Fluffy's Animal Tab combined?

    I don't know, I tried neither of them.
    I just wanted a simple mod that does one thing well, and that is: find beavers and other pests :~)

    Could you add an option to show meat and leather amount?

    Well, after a quick test, I found that this is similar to Numbers in the way you have a list of all the wild animals in the maps. However, yours adds features like the Animal Tab. Well Done, I like it. BTW, It is compatible With Numbers and Fluffy's Animal Tab so far.

    My only concern with this mod is similar to my concern about Fluffy's Colony Manager in that it accounts for animals that aren't in explored areas of the map. So if there are bugs in a hidden room somewhere with some megascarabs in it the tab will tell you that they're on the map somewhere.

    I'm going to try this out. I like Fluffy's mods, but I like how this one gives you a button that you can click on to hunt animals. Thank you!

    Woah! Very nice mod, incredibly usefull. A few features for the future if you are planning into keep updating/improving it:

    - Would rock to have each type of animal group ordered by distance to a certain spot (¿Option maybe?). I thought that most colonies have a party spot selected that's usually around the "center" of the colony, so it would be very usefull on big maps to have an idea of how far a Hunter/Tamer should have to travel to do his/her job in a glance. To prevent resource wasting this "distance" should only be calculated once per tab opening... After all is just a particular suborder into each animal group just to have an easy evaluations like "the top Muffalo is the closest... The bottom Grizzly is the farthest".

    Thank you all for your feedback and suggestions!

    Could you add an option to show meat and leather amount?
    If I'm not mistaken the amount of resources gathered from butchering is the same for all animals of a given species, I think the formula is: more bigger -> more resources. For this reason it seems a bit redundant to me to repeat this data over and over again. How about a compromise in form of an info button that opens an animal's stats window (where this and other data can be looked up)?

    (snip)Would rock to have each type of animal group ordered by distance to a certain spot (¿Option maybe?). (snip)
    I have thought about that, too. While certainly possible I wonder how useful this would actually be on maps that aren't huge (and even then it often takes longer to actually hit the animal than hauling it back home :~). Calculating distances to your base for a few dozen pawns does not sound super demanding as you only need to do it every few seconds. I will certainly play around with your idea to see if it is viable. I also plan to add sorting/filtering/grouping options in the future, or at least try them out and see what is really necessary and what is only fluff (no pun intended ;~).

    Thank you for letting me know. I will fix that asap.

    EDIT: Fixed.

    Simple and Beautiful, this will become extremely useful given the ability to sort and group. I will download first thing tonight.

    Is it possible to make the panel only assessible after research or by building and using a "radar"  station? Or is this just makingit too complex?

    It certainly is possible. I have thought about this as well, my idea was to add a deerstand hunters would have to occasionally visit or something like that. I decided not to implement that, though. I think this mod provides an essential function so I don't plan to gate it behind gameplay requirements, sorry.
    Of course you are free to re-release an alternate version that adds a radar or research requirement, I'm sure a lot of people would like that.
