Reason: Update mod to version: 07.03.23
This is a fork and continuation of the mod Animal Armor: Vanilla, as the original author was looking to pass the lead of this project onto someone else.
Using the Animal Gear framework, this mod allows you to research, craft, and outfit your tamed animals with warm clothes and protective battle armor across all tech levels.
Changes in this fork
Q. How to I get animals to equip things?
A. Technically, it uses the same system that pawns use to pick out and equip their own gear, which is as follows:
Q. What is universal/placeholder armor?
A. This is equipment that can be worn by any animal, but lacks any custom art, so it's invisible. You can disable this feature in mod options, under the Vanilla Expanded Framework section.
Q. The bridle isn't working
A. At the moment the bridle only supports the thrumbo and spelopedes. As usual, you can check the item details for a list of supported animals.
These mods have animal equipment graphics:
As for other animal mods, all of them should be able to wear the invisible placeholder armors. Should art be made for their armor in the future, the framework will switch their armor over automatically next load.
These mods also work:
- Adds horse plate armor and horse riding gear (FINALLY!). These textures were made and donated by austrinus
- Replaced the cow scarf with an HD remake.
- Vanilla Expanded Framework is no longer a hard requirement and instead optional. If you want to use the invisible armor placeholders, you'll need it.
