More Animals Mod v1.2.3

This mod adds new animals for you to hunt or nurture as you please, currently this mod includes Ring-necked Pheasants which will spawn in temperate areas which are between 8 and 28 degrees C, Golden Pheasants that spawn in tropical areas which are above 24 degrees C, Capercaillies that spawn in subarctic areas which are between -26 and 10 degrees C. All three game birds will spawn in areas that have at least 32% rainfall and at least 40% forest or shrub coverage, they both show distinct sexual dimorphism with the males having highly decorative plumage and distinct calls and the hens having much plainer plumage and vocalisations, Capercaillies display the largest difference between the body volume between the cock and hen with the hens being much smaller than the stout, wide males and the males produce more meat as a result.
Pheasants, Golden Pheasants and Capercaillies provide more poultry meat and feathers than chickens (with the larger males producing more than the hens) and will eat grain from small troughs like chickens but will also eat grain dropped on the ground, you can employ this to lure wild birds into an enclosure.
This mod also adds a new nest box block which uses the recipe of the henbox, all birds can lay eggs in it and sit on it to incubate any fertile eggs held inside. The new nest box displays what species can use the nest box, what eggs are contained inside it, what species laid the eggs and whether the eggs are fertile or not when you move your mouse over the nestbox block. Any species can incubate eggs held within a nestbox as long as it's considered full (when it contains three eggs) regardless of what eggs are held within as long as at least one is fertile.
When the eggs hatch the chicks which will grow up into poults after 7 days and the poults will be fully grown adults after a further 7 days requiring a total of two in-game weeks to fully mature.

I'm using this mod in 1.16.5.

Pheasant eggs don't seem to work with Expanded Foods...

Jaketoadie If you're in the Vintage Story discord server you can DM me on discord, my username is the same there as it is here, or you could provide me the logs by putting them on The bug only occurs when you're looking at a nest box with (presumably) both a capercaillie and pheasant egg in it right? I'll take a look and see if I can reproduce the bug, if you're willing you can help me by trying to reproduce the bug yourself in single player where the exceptions it causes won't boot you.

I seem to have a repeatable bug with a nest box that contains 2 different eggs. I have a ranch wtih both Pheasants and Capercaillies, and as soon as I look at a nest box, that I believe contains eggs from both the game crashes. I have disabled all other mods and experience the same crash. I have saved the logs from a crash with all other mods disabled I could provide if you need them and have some way for me to pass them over.

does it work on 1.16.5 stable?

Catasteroid, Apr 11th at 8:44 PM

Lisabet Wow I missed that one, I'll upload a fix immediately

golden pheasant cocks are spawning in with normal pheasant females; I haven't managed to find a single golden pheasant hen :(

(literally watched a group spawn in and all the hens were normal pheasant and so were the chicks)

fancygoat, Apr 2nd at 6:36 PM

I love your mod and the work you have done on the birds, they are absolutly stunning.

I would also suggest you make more pheasant variants if possible so you can get a collection (gotta cathc them all) thing going.  I would especially love to see the silver pheasant, blood pheasant and green pheseant in this mod:) also, chech out all theese awsome birds:

radfast, Mar 16th at 5:51 PM

Really nice mod, I love the look of the birds and the way you have extended the henbox.

Might I suggest the addition of a Common Nightingale in support of Ukraine? It's their national bird.

macoto_hino Thank you so much for this, I've added the Japanese translation to each mod, for some of them the translation will be included when I release further updates and for some others I will release a new version just with the translation soon. I've just added a new release of More Animals today that includes the Golden Pheasant and Capercaillie and I'd appreciate an updated translation if you have the time spare to do it. Thanks again.

Dascha, Feb 21st at 7:50 PM

really love this mod the model is really nice and the sounds are awesome really look forward to a pheasant farm of my own :) it would be really cool if they could feed out of feeding troughs :)

Minni6in, Feb 19th at 12:49 AM

add another animal so the name makes more sense 😛

macoto_hino, Feb 18th at 9:38 PM

@Catasteroid I thought about putting it off, but the amount of translation seemed small, so I stayed up all night to translate it. I'll post them on each mod's page.😆

Catasteroid, Feb 18th at 7:22 PM

macoto_hino That's ok! You don't have to do it at all even, I'd appreciate it if you did though. 

macoto_hino, Feb 18th at 5:28 PM


When playing on my own, I prioritize translating the mods I have installed, so it is a bit difficult for me to translate other mods you are making into Japanese.
However, I don't know how long it will take, but I might do it when I finish the mods I'm translating now.

Catasteroid, Feb 18th at 4:49 PM

macoto_hino Thank you very much for this translation, I really appreciate it. If it's not too much to ask could you make a Japanese translation for a couple of my other mods please? I'd like a translation for Hide and Fabric, More Bags, Spider Silk, More Roofing and Sterile Bandages if that's ok, thanks again.

macoto_hino, Feb 17th at 11:16 PM

This is a Japanese language file. Please use it if you like.😀
