Adds pandas, otters, penguins and kiwis, textures graciously supplied by Lex124. Thank you to Thirite for providing a better way to spawn the animals in the wild.
If A Dog Said is installed, you can enable animal surgery by also installing the ADS Patch. Please do report any unexpected behaviour with ADS.

This is the full version; all animals will spawn in the wild, may appear as manhunters and you might even spawn with one of them as a pet.

Please report any issues; feedback in regards to balancing is highly welcome.

This workshop entry will be updated to the current version of RimWorld as it is released.
Older versions can be found on github: https://github.com/cucumpear/Beasties
The A16 version is available for manual install here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/q0t1mm7a7axslvo/CPBeasties.zip?dl=0

I haven't found any issues with your descriptions, aside from the Kiwi one. I don't think you need a copy editor... but I might, since I realized today that my suggested new text omitted the critical 'flightless' attribute that was even mentioned in your original version and that really should not be missing in any Kiwi-related summary. So here is my second attempt: 'The diminutive, flightless Kiwi is a deceptively fast critter. Compared to its body size, it lays the largest eggs of any bird species.'

That's what I get for copy-pasting stuff, especially when I know that my typing is not the best (it's so frustrating when your brain knows how to spell, but your stubby fingers don't want to play nice). TBH I'm terrible at coming up with descriptions, except for the occasional outlier, so I'm totally stealing that description.

Since you're going to take a look at Kiwis in general, their powerful legs also make them surprisingly fast (and no, I'm not the creepy-looking guy in that video!), which doesn't seem to be reflected in their in-game speed of 2.7 (The humble Turkey has 3.5).

Also, the Kiwi's current description is 'A flighless bird with unusually large eggs.'. Apart from the typo, may I suggest changing it to 'Compared to their body size, these surprisingly fast little critters lay the largest eggs of any bird species.'

The penguins from your mod have the 'flighless'-typo in there, too - Just a heads-up!

Thank you for your efforts in creating all of this for us! :)

Whoa, that was FAST! Thanks for taking a look at the situation! :)

I'll make a note, the next ACP update might be a while though.

I don't know if you're still updating this mod since the collaborative one seems to supercede it, but Kiwis as implemented right now in both mods have a life expectancy of only 6 years, when they should have something approaching 40. I mentioned this in the comment section of the Animal Collab Project a while ago, but that quickly fell off the first page unnoticed.

Thanks for your great mod. Is it compatible with combat extended?
