@Altbert, once again you have created a helpful a well thought out mod! Thank you.
One feature that I am looking for, and that perhaps could be added in your mod is this:
Goats and perhaps cows drop two horns! For Building. That would make it perfect!

Yes, strange things are happening in Skyrim! Flying mammoths, weapons floating in the air after killing an NPC, etc. Eggs are just there for the alchemists. Animals and creatures just keep respawning out of nothing. BTW, ever encountered a rock warbler or pine thrush bird? Although these birds are not in the game, their eggs can be found all over the place.

All male except for deer, hmmm? Me thinks Skyrim has a problem with an over abundance of occurrences of hermaphrodites and gender dysphoria in its all male animal kingdom. I wonder how they reproduce? Maybe like sponges where they grow polyps which eventually fall off and then go on to mature into biologically identical offspring of the single parent? And if they do that what advantage do birds gain buy laying eggs?

What we need now is a new quest to determine why these phenomena are occurring!

Ok, haven't seen them as of late. Ty
Altbert  [author] Apr 20, 2015 @ 7:21am 
That should already be possible! Each goat can be looted for 2 legs, 2 beef and 2 horns. It requires Hearthfire DLC.

I was playing recently and it occured to me that with everything that is in here, I would like to see goat horns when looting goats. Just a thought. :)

Sure, you're absolutely right! But, in the game they are marked as male!

The chickens all seem like hens to me. Roosters have much larger combs and wattles, and have long Sickle-shaped tail feathers. Additionally, unless the farmer has cut them off, the roos develop long sharp spurs on the backs of their legs.

As for the deer, they seem to most closely resemble Ice-age giant roe deer. They, like modern reindeer and roe deer had antlers on both males and females. As is the case with the aforementioned modern decendants, the males' antlers were much larger than the doe's, and were palmate in shape similar to those of a moose.

So, there's a new challenge, since all the animals in Skyrim, both wild and domesticated, are male, except for deer and elk! Even chickens, although laying eggs, are male!

Um... Erica-the-Awsome, You must be a guy because it's not like there's a bag that fills up with milk which you can just slice open and drain the milk out of. All mammals (including humans) work pretty much the same way. Female mammals have tiny glands which modify white and a small number of red blood cells along with a large amount of fat to make milk, which travels not into a bag, but rather into small ducts which lead to the nipples.The ducts can store a small amount of milk, but the mammaries of all animals are heavily vascularised, and if you were to slice open the udder of a goat or cow you will get so much blood flowing out that you won't be able to find any milk in it. Additionally milk glands stop working when the animal dies. Sorry. No milk harvest from dead critters. Also, you can use a churn to separate butter fat from whole milk, but the production of cheese is a whole other process which does not include the use of a butter churn.

You might want to consider using honey for sugar...?
Altbert  [author] Dec 16, 2013 @ 1:06pm 
No, because I haven't found 'normal' sugar in TES Lore. Instead I use moon sugar, that is also used as an ingredient of Elsweyr Stew.

Have you considered adding sugar? I find that there is no sugar anywhere and some of the recipes call for it. Other than that, I love this mod. Thanks for the great work.
Erica-the-Awesome Oct 17, 2013 @ 5:33pm 
here is a suggestion... when u kill a goat or cow, u should b able to harvest milk. and in any of the hearthfire homes, the butter churn should be useable to make butter or chees with its own annimation... and deer meat (when cooked) should have 10 health. great mod btw
