Breedable Karkinos [Conversion]

This mod makes karkinos breedable with options to convert vanilla karkinos into my modded version and vice versa.

Cryo conversion is now available, if this interests you be sure to check it out here:

-Allows converting vanilla karkinos into modded Karkinos from the radial menu.
-Allows converting modded karkinos into vanilla Karkinos from the radial menu.
-Karkinos will lay eggs.
-INI configurations


ConvertToMod allows you to convert vanilla karkinos into my modded version, setting this to false will remove the option from the radial menu.

ConvertToVanilla allows you to convert my modded karkinos into the vanilla version, setting this to false will remove the option from the radial menu.

PreventClone allows you to generate a new creature ancestry ID when converting the karkinos, this is mainly for servers with dupe protection.

WaterOnly means that the karkinos will only be breedable in water, setting this to false will allow them to breed outside of water.

Spawn Commands

@ChadFinder If you're on aberration you need to enable transfers for non-aberrant dino's.
open gameusersettings.ini and paste this line under [ServerSettings]

@owyn.kirby shallow water is fine as long as they are both completely underwater, otherwise you can change the config option to let them breed like land dino's.

Can it only breed in deep depths?

@Kaassouflet by default the karkinos must be in water to breed unless you change it via the ini settings.

@El Sexo De Roth They can get colour and stat mutations like any other creature.

Can karkinos babies get colour mutations?
