About this mod

More Varied life spread across much larger distances

Permissions and credits
More balances to the different ecologies and better birds hopefully bring the best variation without too much life!

Version 2.6

Creature Behavior
Reduced migration distance on birds to make them hang round longer
Small birds fly around in trees (technically through them, imagination!)
Increased animation speed on Triceratops when running
Adjustments to call and cry frequency

Creature Spawning
Better chances for larger bird flocks
Reduced Triceratops from Rare to Uncommon to increase them showing up
Reduced spawn distance to help with performance

Biome Changes
More roles for Busy Ecology, with emphasis on night time
Greatly lowered Dead Ecology having life
Slight reordering of role table so large creatures are closer to the top (incase it makes a difference)

Version 2.5
Removed -0.1 Scale variation from role descriptions to prevent the possibility of 0 Scale creatures

Creature Behavior :
Slight adjustments to movement speed to add more variation per species (and a few surprises)
Shrunk "chickens" a bit more :P

Creature Spawning :
Attempted to increase the likelihood of Diplo's spawning

Version 2.4
Removed bugged out role from BUSY Ecology to stop crashing (I hope!)

Creature Behaviour :
Greater variety in Birds, Flying Snakes, Flying Lizards and Fish
Flying Creature movement distances tweaked a little to make them not fly off so quick
Greater possibility for Diplo type dino's
Additional Creature Types based off the TREX and Triceratops

Creature Spawning :
Slight adjustment to giant creature probability on non giant planets to reduce likelihood of giant-ness
Better distribution of flying creatures
Small adjustments to sizes and spread for more variety

Biome Creature Changes :
BUSY Ecology reworked to prevent the crashes and is now more of a mix of COMMON, DINO and PREHISTORIC

Version 2.0
Creature Behavior :
Size based movement speeds with bonus/handicap appropriate to type (a rodent is quick, but a Triceratops is not)
Slow Walk, Walk, Trot and Run speed differences increased on each Creature type. (Triceratops can run quite fast, so prey its not angry!)
Adjustments to movement / wander distances to try and get them to not walk/fly/swim in circles so much (mostly successful, especially on birds)
Flying Creatures will get much closer to the ground, but also spend more time higher up
Sea Creatures should spawn a little deeper underwater to stop them getting stuck in shallows

Creature Spawning :
'Generic' Creature types split into Common (small), Uncommon (Regular) and Rare (Large)
'Special' Creature Types split into Common (appropriate size), Uncommon (unusually large/small), Rare (unusually very large/very small)
Much better distribution of creatures with less mega-groups instead preferring regular interlacing small groups. Huge groups are still possible
Only 'Special' Creature Types have predefined roles, with all others choosing from an equal pool of generic roles. (technically the special creatures can choose these too)
Creature Roles on a planet redone from scratch. There are now Common/Uncommon/Rare possibilities for tiny,small,regular,large,varied,full range groups of creatures with both Predator and Prey versions biased according to Ecology Type. Many sizes also have small/medium/large grouping variations
Flying things can get MUCH bigger
Slight adjustment to the Triceratops and T-Rex rigs to promote Diplo/Triceratops/T-Rex's actually spawning instead of monsters

Biome Creature Changes :
Each "Ecology" set redone to bring much more variety to each type.  The Fauna level on a planet represents how rare life is, rather than how many species there are.
Barren planets can still have half a dozen creatures, but they will be hard to find! On the flip side, a Paradise planet could have only a small number of species too, but they will be everywhere. 
Don't expect to find every planet full of life, Barren planets still have very low possibilities of life, and that life is more likely to be small and rare.
Planets that were "Dinosaur" planets are now just Large creature planets, and "Prehistoric" is the same, but with greater predator probability.  Any planet can spawn any creature type regardless of Ecology role, however 'common' or above have much greater chances of seeing large/huge creatures.
Due to the number of roles and that none have a 100% probability, it is possible for some interesting combinations, such as huge prey animals, and tonne's of tiny predators chasing them, or a planet covered in butterflies or nothing but rodents.

Version 1.0
Creature Behaviour Changes :
Increased Movement Speed variation and greater differences in movement style between genus'
Adjusted Noise frequency to accommodate larger numbers
Greater variety in height preferences per genus
Greater likelihood that larger = more dangerous
Increased migratory distances groups move
Greater difference between night and day aggression

Creature Spawn Changes :
Significantly greater spawn distances
Greater variety of Air, Ground, Cave and Underwater species when life is detected
Spawn points spread out significantly
Spawn Groups increased in size and variation
Greater possibilities for small, large and huge variations
Spread of spawns over night and day for Air, Ground and Underwater
Increased uncommon and rare possibilities

Biome Creature Changes :
Probabilities adjusted to make less-than-ideal worlds more interesting
Total Possibile chosen species groups increased across the board
Better predator/prey combinations
