I am completely open to feedback, but I am, for the moment, sticking to my principles of subdividing mods if I think that the scope is too large for the type of modding that I typically do.

💬 Hieronymus, May 7th at 5:07 PM

Sheepon is right, I am subdividing this by geographic region. I don't want to make a single mod with over 30 or so species because having smaller mods allows players to customize what is in their game if they are concerned about regional accuracy or the performance of their game. Since my mods at the moment are all small animals with small textures, they are generally not as taxing on the texture atlas as mods that use larger textures. I understand that I could have merged this with Pond Frogs I, which was my original plan, but I kept the mods separate for those two reasons.

Pond Frogs I are mostly Europpean frogs while these are Asian. I imagine having them be separate mods lets players decide if they only want stuff that's native to one region or another. Might break immersion for biology nerds if everything was all lumped together.

Why not merge this with Pond Frogs I?

If I were to install this along with Pond Frogs I, assuming I have other mods that add creatures, would this be taxing on the texture atlas?
