Further information:

This is a work in progress mod, so everything is not perfect yet. However i believe this mod is good enough to add something to the game.

Below i have written down info on progress, and my own thoughts on direction of the mod:

BIRDS

Basically i am only adding birds that are a realistic and believable in the skyrim climate. Also, i will only base my birds on real world birds. No fantasy stuff :)

My birds are coming from these ideas:
- Found in Norway (I consider norwegian climate to match skyrim climate very well, also these are the birds i live with).
- Found in tes lore.
- Suggestions from users.

Below is a list to give an idea of birds to come.

Confirmed birds to be in the next update 0.6 (search on google images to know what they look like):

- Female pheasants
- Magpies
- Wood pigeons

If you have any strong objections against any birds you are free to comment, but you have to bring good arguments :p

Birds that will be made sometime:
- Rock Warbler

Birds i really want to add but I need to overcome technical difficulties:

- Swimming seagulls and ducks.
- Owls
- Geese
- More customized flying birds, sizes and flying patterns.

Birds that already has been suggested and will be considered:

- Vultures (Bearded, Lappet, Black, Turkey, Condor, etc.)
- Eagles (Golden, Bald, African Crowned, Harpy, etc.)
- Owls (Great Horned, Snow, Eurasianed, Blakinston's, etc.)
- Cranes (Whooping, Sarus, Red Crowned, etc.)
- Turkeys
- Falcons (Gyrfalcon, Peregrine, Kestrels, etc.)
- Hawks (Red-tailed, Cooper's, Kites, Osprey, etc.)
- Bats
- Blue Jays
- Mocking Birds
- Atlantic Puffins
- Penguins

Birds that have been suggested but will never make it to this mod:
- Parrots
- Any fantasy based creature

If your bird did not make it to one of these lists, i propably have missed it. Feel free to put it into comments section.

FEATURES

Features i am currently looking to implement (dont know when):
- Spesific sound effect for the birds. First will be seagullsounds in places with a lot of seagull.
- 3D placement. I am trying to work out a good way of placing birds on shopsigns, lanterns, trees, roofs etc.
- A good faction and ai behaviour system.
- Bird spesific loot

Features that have been suggested and i am considering:[\b]
