Under the spoiler are preview images of replacements for 1.5 creatures:

- This mod also now supports the randomization of most creatures!

1. Install the latest version of SMAPI.
2. Install the latest version of Content Patcher.
3. Extract into your \Stardew Valley\Mods\ folder.
4. Run the game through SMAPI to generate a config.json, then close.
5. Open the config.json with a program like Notepad and use the images in the References folder to change each creature to the sprite you prefer. All creature replacements can be disabled with the value "False"
6. Run the game using SMAPI to play with your new critters!

To uninstall, just delete the folder you put in your Mods directory.

Note about 1.5 spoilers: For reference images, I separated new creatures from 1.5 into the last 3 images and named them as "mild spoilers". These creatures have no descriptions about what they are or where they appear, but they do show a sprite of the vanilla animals like the other reference images. They are the last 16 entries in the config if you wish to disable them by changing their values to "False".
