newworldgianttortoises_111.zip 1-click install


Adds nine species of New World giant tortoises that spawn in different environments to your world. This mod includes the red-footed tortoise (Chelonoidis carbonarius), the yellow-footed tortoise (C. denticulatus), the Chaco tortoise (C. chilensis), the Galápagos giant tortoise (C. niger), the Bahamian tortoise (C. alburyorum)†, the Cuban giant tortoise (C. cubensis)†, the Mona tortoise (C. monensis)†, Gerson's tortoise (C. gersoni)†, and Marcano's tortoise (C. marcanoi)†.

All adult tortoises added by this mod can be hunted for their shells, which can be used for decoration and are also a taxidermy component. Some tortoises are also a source of bushmeat. If you truly desire to, you can breed them by keeping a male and female tortoise of the same species in an enclosed space with a trough full of fruit or vegetables. Tortoise eggs and baby tortoises can be picked up and transported alive using a bug net, but juvenile and adult tortoises cannot be caught in that manner.

Note: Species marked with † are extinct in the present day but existed within modern human history (the Holocene epoch), justifying their inclusion. These mods include only species that have been alive at some point within the past 12,000 years.

Note: This mod requires version 1.0.1 or later of the mod Bug Net Compatibility (https://mods.vintagestory.at/bugnetcompatibility) to function properly. Issues may occur if that mod is not also installed.

Special thanks to Tenth Architect for the Fauna of the Stone Age taxidermy system, which this mod also uses (although it does not require any FotSA mods and works with or without them).

First of all, your mod is amazing. I love all the tortoises! They make me scream of joy <3
My only question is, am I able to catch the tortoises in cages to move them? Or another way to move them across oceans? I need them in my life

I have been quite busy recently, but I will try my best to look into the trough situation in the future.

💬 ghjk258, Apr 6th at 5:43 PM

so the animals interact with the troughs just fine but the size of thje ist of animals makes the tool tip so large i can only add 1 serving at a time is there any way to condence the list or make it a optinal tool tip 

 

💬 SunshineFaith, Mar 18th at 5:06 PM

Is there still an issue with not being able to interact with the troughs?

💬 SunshineFaith, Mar 11th at 1:50 AM

Is this working now for the troughs?  Love your mods.  Anyone using this in 1.19.4? 

💬 Tikimillie, Mar 4th at 11:26 PM

i like that they're all seperate, but- uh- maybe you could make a full collection of all your little creature mods in one? and update it whenever you add a new creature, while uploading the seperate file aswell-

💬 Yelb, Feb 20th at 9:04 PM

Please make a pack of all your awesome critters

💬 Moonbyes, Feb 19th at 8:33 AM

dunno if it's something fixable, but all the names makes troughs unable to be interacted with once something edible to the tortoises is in it because the box covers the crosshair

Maamessu
I have released an update that should fix the issue. If it does not, let me know.
