1.0.0 (30/08/2019): Release

No animal mod, or in this instance, mod series, can be complete without Lions. This mod, albeit being smaller to not overpopulate the desolate deserts of the planet, contains some of the most popular and requested - and dangerous - animals that can most often be found in the desert. With this particular mod you can hear hyena’s laughter echo through the night, train your own pack of lions, tackle a desert tortoise and die due to venom injected by the feared gila monster.

Vanilla Animals Expanded is a modular mod. It means it will come out in several modules allowing people to subscribe to only the animals they want in the game. This part is the Desert biome expansion. It adds 4 new animals that will spawn in the Desert, but some of them also spawn in other biomes. They have vanilla artwork, sounds and balancing.

Vanilla Animals Expanded: Desert 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.

Q: Do the animals spawn randomly in biomes?
A: Yes, all these animals are guaranteed to spawn in Desert biome, with some of them also spawning in other biomes.

Q: Is X a pack animal?
A: None of the animals in this mod are pack animals.

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 different animals for different biomes, but this workshop submission is completed.

Q: Is this mod compatibile with A Dog Said?
A: Yes. You need A Dog Said and LBE's A Dog Said Easy Patcher loaded before this mod.

Q: Why is your mod special?
A: I am a vanilla player. Anything that doesn't suit vanilla game makes me cringe and I stay away from it. I did however find the game lacking after some time, therefore I've created these animals to be as accurate and as close to vanilla graphics style as possible. What is special? The best part is - nothing in this mod is special at all. Nothing will make you go "Oh that's unusual", because the whole purpose of this mod is to blend into the existing game.

Q: Is this mod save game compatible?
A: Yes, you can add it and remove it whenever you like.

Q: Can you add /this/ animal?
A: Chances are it’s probably already in the works as part of another biome. Please, stay vigilant and be patient. I’m just a human.

Q: CE compatible?
A: It will be soon, with a following mod being a patch for it: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1824112352&searchtext=animal+expanded
