Vanilla Animals Expanded is a large mod that contains almost all previous Vanilla Animals Expanded modules, this time merged into one big mod. Fear not, however - last thing we want is to bloat your game: you can now disable individual animals in mod options! You can only enable the animals that appear in your biome if you want.
The reason we merged all the animal mods is because they are finished - the only new animals we have planned fit into standalone packs. We have already covered all the biomes, so it’s only proper we clean it up and make it into one big mod.
No, we have no plans to merge any other mods together.
This mod adds dozens of new animals that fit RimWorld aesthethic, from house cats and rottweilers to anacondas and indian elephants, it really breathes a lot of life into the game and makes every biome feel very, very unique.
Vanilla Animals Expanded adds following animals to the base game:
There shouldn’t be any incompatibilities or issues, but in case anything pops up, report issues in the comments.
For balance reasons, we have made a VERY comprehensive animal spreadsheet.
Q: Do the animals spawn randomly in biomes?
A: Yes, all these animals are guaranteed to spawn in Temperate Forest biome, with some of them also spawning in other biomes.
Q: Can I disable X animal?
A: Yes! Use mod options to disable any or all animals if you so desire. They will never appear in your game then!
Q: Is X a pack animal?
A: Pack animals are marked on infographics.
Q: Why is X animal white?
A: It’s only white as a texture, but ingame, code applies colour to it. It’s a little trick that mod authors do to have a bit more control over how an animal looks.
Q: Can I suggest a feature?
A: Absolutely, leave a comment down below!
Q: Will you keep updating the mod with new animals?
A: No. I will focus on other modules, adding new animals, but this mod is complete as is.
Q: Is this mod save game compatible?
A: Yes, you can add it whenever you want. Please remember: removing mods causes issues!
Q: Can you add /this/ animal?
A: Feel free to suggest it!
Q: CE compatible?
A: No idea.
