If you've ever started collecting butterflies and found the standard display case to be lacking, this is the mod for you!

 

This mod also includes a patch that very slightly tweaks the lateral offset for butterflies in display cases to center them; This is also noticeable in vanilla (and some butterflies noticeably clip when placed within), so it improves the vanilla case in that regard.

Features:

5 New Display Types

  • 2 wall displays!

Small DisplayLarge Display

 

  • 3 tabletop displays!

  • All woodtyped!

 

(And an extra all-black set craftable by adding black dye to the recipe if you'd prefer a more "modern" style case):

 

Specimens placed in dome cases will also orient themselves to your position, like in vanilla display cases:

Extra:

As an added bonus, and this is displayed in some of the above screenshots, you can place pretty much anything that'd fit in a normal display case in a dome case. Your mileage may vary and there are no checks in place to stop clipping from happening, but I find this is especially nice for displaying collected bountiful crystallized ore chunks.

You can also put whatever in the other displays since I didn't care to limit it (even though I could), but it wasn't a focus and it'll probably look bad. YMMV!

want to collect shells and display them.  I wonder if I can put them in any of the cases.  

💬 BluntTongsAuthor, Mar 11th at 3:49 PM

SunshineFaith It should! The only thing this mod changes that isn't just adding content is sliiiiightly tweaking a butterfly display attribute to make them centered, which... I'm not sure how Display Case Wall centers their objects so they might have manually tweaked butterflies to look more centered, which might throw them off a bit, but it shouldn't be too bad even if that is the case.

Does this work with Display Case Wall?  I love that you included different types of wood

ArtiKs Aha, so sorry for the wait! Motivation waxes and wains so I'm glad I finally pulled it together enough to put this out. Hope you enjoy!

minni You're very welcome! I hope you enjoy; Butterfly collecting is fun but the vanilla cases aren't so great at it, so I was pretty motivated.

It is ready at last, so let's give it a go~
Thank you for the mod. Been keeping your profile in mind since last year post BluntTongs

I love this a normal, not weird amount. Been wanting something like this forever. Thank you.
