hey man, i love your mod, the thing is i recently got shipwrecked..., could you edit the modinfo.lua for it to be compatible?, please?

I don't know if it's this mod, but there's a mod that is causing birds in cages to not drop eggs when given meat. If someone else is having this issue please help me locate this mod. I'm already on a dig through the mods I have installed.

Need more mods like this, well put together, good description and gives you exactly what it says.

@Black Mirror I searched through my mods and found one that in the configuration had an option for named seeds from birdcages. It must of interfered because I disabled it and fed my birds, and my game did not crash. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

Give me the log file. Its in ...\Documents\Klei\DoNotStarve, make paste bin with it after game crash and give me the link.
I gave one dragonfruit to the bird and my game didn't crash, so I need more data.
Paradigm Blue Dec 9, 2015 @ 4:57pm 
Not entirely sure if it was because of this mod, but when I fed a Dragonfruit to one of the birds (haven't tried with other seeds since), the game crashed. I have no other mods that deal with birdcages or named seeds, and the error screen identified this mod only. Is this crash common, or is it just specific to me?

I mixed some java syntax with lua, don't code at night:D
Changed to lua syntax, if it still crashes you will have to wait few hours, I need some sleep.

mod crashing game says that there is a failure with this mod on
steamapps/common/dont_starve/data.../mods/workshop-178082797/modmain.lua:231:'end' expected (to close 'if' at line 164 near '<eof>'
I get this when I just have this mode enabled or with outehr modes too
Himura(Blank) Dec 7, 2015 @ 2:47am 
ah ok then good luck with that
Black Mirror  [author] Dec 7, 2015 @ 2:43am 
@Himura(Blank)
No idea, this whole thing needs code rewrite anyway.
Himura(Blank) Dec 7, 2015 @ 2:42am 
from what I have seen is that the 3 new birds drop the same feathers as the normal ones just are diffrent was looking at your feather drop code and where is says feather = SpawnPrefab("feather_"..self.birdname) does that mean that it will drop a feather based on the birds name if so would that be why it is not working with shipwrecked?

@Himura(Blank)
Soon, I need to play the DLC a little first, and see whats going on there.
Himura(Blank) Dec 7, 2015 @ 2:11am 
do you have anyplains to update this for shipwrecked?
HalleTehBarnOwl Oct 10, 2015 @ 1:29pm 
this reminds me of how i have to clean my birds' cage. in exchage of it? beautiful feathers
Jarda Oct 7, 2015 @ 1:25am 
If seed drops are time gated and has no relation with feeding the birds, then they should not conflict. Great work btw, thank you! Subscribed and added to my "must have" collection.
Black Mirror  [author] Oct 7, 2015 @ 12:50am 
@Jarda
Not sure, about it.
Spooky Javier Mar 10, 2015 @ 8:56am 
Now this give us more reason to make 3 birdcage and capture all birds.
Gota catch them all ! :3
Tiniflake Feb 22, 2015 @ 12:56pm 
Well, if this mod ever get's an update, could I ask for a version, which would be without a seed modification? I would like to use only the pure feather dropping, since the rest conflicts my other mod...
Tiniflake Feb 5, 2015 @ 3:16pm 
Hi, could you please make it, so that NORMAL seeds won't ever drop if you feed a bird in a cage? Please, give us that option and then this mod would be 10/10.
Blaxer Jan 16, 2015 @ 5:56pm 
perfect for getting more blowdarts w/o having to masacre inocent birds, nice
Ginkofishin Dec 16, 2014 @ 2:08am 
this is awesome!
Gustavo Nov 21, 2014 @ 9:54am 
How can I configure time of feather drop chance ?
Linkshiedl Nov 15, 2014 @ 8:18am 
how do i make a birdcage? is it an adventure mode thing?
Very Disco Oct 30, 2014 @ 8:59am 
Hey, very nice update, I love the limit on how many feathers can be on the ground. Great mod, and thanks for updating it
Very Disco Oct 25, 2014 @ 5:30am 
Hey, would it be possible for you to add an option for no feathers, or make them extremely rare, like one every 3 or 5 days? Thanks in advance.
toomanynights Sep 26, 2014 @ 11:17am 
Yeah, thank you! It's much more friendly now :)
Jasper Sep 24, 2014 @ 4:20pm 
Thank you so much for the update! This will be fun to play around with :)
Black Mirror  [author] Sep 24, 2014 @ 4:14pm 
@Jasper, @toomanynights
Mod updated.
Black Mirror  [author] Aug 24, 2014 @ 12:36pm 
@Jasper
Will update sometime soon. Just don't wait on it that much.
Jasper Aug 24, 2014 @ 12:32pm 
Would you be able to update this so we can configure the drop rate? I like the idea of the mod, but in practice I've found the drops are too regular, I've got almost a chest full of 40 stacks of crimson feathers after 160 days.
toomanynights Aug 23, 2014 @ 7:45am 
Awesome mod, thanks!
Could you please make the periods configurable? I'm sinking in feather :D
Black Mirror  [author] May 3, 2014 @ 10:00am 
@Mythophile
Yes its working with RoG
Mythophile May 3, 2014 @ 8:08am 
Is this compatible with the RoG DLC?
KopiG May 1, 2014 @ 11:55am 
Seems like its working! They dont seem to lose any hunger. They aint dying. Thank you very much for the update!
Black Mirror  [author] May 1, 2014 @ 10:56am 
@Soulkiller
Updated, check it now.
KopiG May 1, 2014 @ 10:26am 
Thank you very much! Also my last post was inaccurate.. they DID lose hunger I just had to wait a little bit more. I am sorry for the inaccuracy.
Black Mirror  [author] May 1, 2014 @ 10:22am 
@Soulkiller
Ok its mod fault after all, will update in an hour or so.
KopiG May 1, 2014 @ 10:20am 
Okay I dont understand this. Reenabled your mod, watched the bird for half a day but hasnt lost a single "hunger". I guess I will keep playing to see if they die or not.
KopiG May 1, 2014 @ 10:10am 
PS: Your mod is way too awesome to play without. It should implemented in the core game tbh.
KopiG May 1, 2014 @ 10:09am 
I can confirm that Birds still require food with your mod. I disabled your mod then watched a bird for a whole day. Removed it from the cage and it hasnt lost a single "hunger". Used it on a fully fed bird, so after a whole day it should have been like half fed but instead was still fully fed. So it seems like I can confirm that Birds still require food with your mod which isnt consistent with the recent patch changes. If you have some time could you please take a look into it?
KopiG May 1, 2014 @ 10:06am 
No I dont have anything. Just your mod. Nothing else. Please could you take a look at this? Atm I disabled your mod to see if the bird still dies in the cage. Maybe its just a buggy patch
Black Mirror  [author] May 1, 2014 @ 9:54am 
@Soulkiller
Do you have that seed balance mod for birdcage or any other birdcage mod?
KopiG May 1, 2014 @ 9:52am 
Could you please update it for the current build? Birds no longer require food when in Birdcages but somehow they keep dying of starvation. Is this caused by this mod? Or is the patch bugged?
Black Mirror  [author] Apr 22, 2014 @ 1:25am 
@Brother Spector
Dying bird is not caused by this mod.
PlusSafe3 Apr 21, 2014 @ 2:47pm 
what tab is it under
Black Mirror  [author] Apr 21, 2014 @ 1:12am 
@Brother Spector
Will check that soon.
SpectorB Apr 20, 2014 @ 6:17pm 
I don't know if im the only one having this problem, if its in base game, or what, but;

right when the 5th or 6th feather falls for redbirds, the bird dies, no matter how much food i give the bird. I litteraly took it out of the cage, feed it to full, placed it back in the cage, and the next feather it dropped killed it.

I have not been able to test if it is infact this mod or not, but I am also using "more crop seeds" along with this mod.

Agian, this was after the 5th or 6th feather on a red bird. If not maybe a bit later.
