LBE's A Dog Said Easy Patcher

Normal users need only load this mod after A Dog Said (Regular, Lite, Or No Crafting) - N.B. It will only affect mods that have added support for the easy patcher.

This mod adds an easy non-invasive way to add A Dog Said compatibility to animal mods.
It negates the need to have a seperate patch mod for every animal which stops ADS patches overriding each other.
It won't break games for users without this mod.

Animal Modders: to make your animal ADS compatible just give your animal's ThingDef the attribute "ADogSaidBody" with the appropriate body type.
For example:
<ThingDef ParentName="AnimalThingBase" ADogSaidBody="LegsTail">
<defName>Wombat</defName> etc. etc. etc....

Available body types: Legs, Arms, ArmsTail, LegsArms, LegsTail, Tail, LegsArmsTail, Limbless

If a user has A Dog Said and A Dog Said Easy Patcher then that animal will automatically become A Dog Said compatible!
But what if a user doesn't have the easy patcher installed? No problem! Unused XML attributes won't change anything. The animal will still work perfectly (they just won't be able to install peg legs on it)

Legs = Things like bears
Arms = Horrifying creatures
ArmsTail = Ditto
LegsArms = Humanoid
LegsTail = Standard quadrupeds like cats and dogs
Tail = Snakes
LegsArmsTail = Like monkeys
Limbless = I don't know what you're making but it sounds terrifying

Should be compatible with Regular, Lite, and No Crafting versions of A Dog Said.
Should work with animals with vanilla body types. May work with custom bodies as long as they have all the standard organs. Now also supports animal healing.
If you run into any bugs or have any issues post a comment and I'll try to fix it as quick as possible. -- If you want to get a hold of me faster you can message be on Twitter @LBEaston or contact me on GitHub https://github.com/LakeByTheWoods/ADogSaidEasyPatcher

Hi, I have a new mod that I like called Milk Dragon, but I'm not sure if the patcher is working because I can't seem to replace their body parts with prothstetics.

@Dominus-kun preferable after the animal mods. you can look into Rimpy for modsorting it has a way better algorithm then modmanager

Hey, i just wanted to ask where to put A dog said and the patcher. Before all the animal mods or after them ?

Yeah that looks like the line

i am trying to patch a mod for myself and is this the line which i need to edit
<ThingDef ParentName="AnimalThingBase" Name="OriBase">?

its the first thing atop that i can see that defines a new animal type. am i right though?

@Frigglish animal farm taught us that a wing is an ambulatory limb and is therefore countable as a leg

is there a need for this mod if you also have "Xenobionic Patcher"?

Please consider updating this Mod to V1.3 if you can. I believe that I have several Mods that depend on it.

That's the kind of philosophical question that I'm not equipped to answer

Okay, I give. I've been neck-deep in the XML files for this and ADS, and using different formats (RecipeUsers lists vs. XML attribute added to Def) isn't helping, but... I give.

What ADogSaidBody do birds use? Just Legs, since Arms are only for primates now and they don't have relevant tails? What about seals and walruses? Are those legs or tails?
