"chicken nest"

want to build your chicken coop in style, here is the mod for you ;)

- adds a nest for small animals to the game. made out of hay, same stats as the animal sleeping box. don't needs research to build.
-you can switch textures by rotating the item (one lighter and one darker)


the mod just adds another item like the small animal box. you can still build the normal box. the chicken nest is not restricted to chickens only. it can be used by other small animals too,like the normal box. it includes 2 chicken nests different textures (switch with rotate), one darker and one brighter. you can minify the building and reinstall to switch the textures. picture for the brighter one can be found on the steamworkshop link. just another texture to make your base/farm look nice ;)

For Rimworld version: Alpha 16 (0.16.1393)

(especially for chickens, because hay is what they like to sit on)

Imo you should make this have the same stats as an animal bed, but only for small animals. I imagine a bed of hay would be a fair bit more comfortable than a solid wooden box.

I'm not clear on whether this will break my current 0.16 save game if I install it. Thanks!

I figured as much. I was just being greedy :)

Im happy enough to be able to build a proper coop now.

you would have to change some base game code for that.

since this involves some serious programing and i'm not super good with that/only got a bit into it with rimworld - pretty hard for me i assume, but not impossible tho.

the other thing is: it would probably take a lot of time on my part for some small "nice to have" feature. i have lot of other ideas on my list, things i wanne add to the other mods. so i don't see this being worth the time/effort to put into at the moment. hope you understand.

but that said it's a cool idea and i hadn't thought of it. it goes on my to do list for this mod.

This looks great. Chickens sleeping in dog boxes or on the ground just looked odd.

Now how difficult would it be to make them lay eggs in these? :)

updated this mod for new rimworld alpha 16

This will break save games!

If you want to use a previous Rimworld alpha and saves were you used this mod, please check the forum topic for download links and install the older version manually.

-just updated for a16 and some minior "usability stuff"
-added mass (same as animal box) for caravans.
-merged both chickennests into one object. meaning you have only one thing in your furniture bar (should reduce stuff you see when using a lot furniture mods). you can switch the textures by rotating the object. you can minify it to change the texturee. both texture are still there.
