About this mod

Adds 8 different skins of raptors and stegos that you can hatch from dinosaur eggs. Instead of choosing just one replacement for the dinosaur, with this mod you can have multiple types of dinos simultaneously!

Requires Paritee's Better Farm Animal Variety. Dino skins adapted from Rurat's Dinosaurs.

Permissions and credits

This mod uses the raptor, charchar, and stego assets from Rurat's Dinosaurs, by The Saboratory. I merely modified their assets to create different colors. In total there are 8 additional dinosaurs.

The colors in this mod include:

  • Purple Raptor
  • Pink Raptor
  • Red Raptor
  • CharChar
  • Shiny CharChar
  • Purple Stegosaurus
  • Green Stegosaurus
  • Red Stegosaurus

Future Plans:

  • Make the dinosaur available at Marnie's Ranch so you can more easily acquire all varieties.
  • Test the consequences of removing the vanilla dinosaur.
  • Let me know if you have any other ideas that I can try to implement!

Installation Instructions (v2.0.0):
There are no longer any additional steps required to get this mod working! Simply drag and drop it into your mods folder (given you have the latest version of BFAV (3.0.0-unofficial.7-mouseypounds) installed.) 

Installation Instructions (v1.0.0):
For version 1.0.0 of this mod, you have to edit the config file from Paritee's Better Farm Animal Variety mod. See detailed instructions below.

1. The new dinos only appear when the hatchling is set to random. To do this, go into the mod folder for Paritee's Better Farm Animal Variety and open the config.json file. Set "RandomizeHatchlingFromCategory" to true. The line should look like this:

"RandomizeHatchlingFromCategory": true,

NOTE: This also makes all chicken eggs randomly choose a type of chicken when hatched from the incubator, making it possible to get void chickens from normal eggs and vice versa.

2. Next, to add the dinosaurs into the game, scroll down to the bottom of the same config.json where it says

"Dinosaur": {
      "Types": [

Change this to:

"Dinosaur": {
"Types": [
  "Purple Raptor",
  "Pink Raptor",
  "Red Raptor",
  "Shiny CharChar",
  "Purple Stegosaurus",
  "Green Stegosaurus",
  "Red Stegosaurus"

3. You're done! Your dinosaurs will now randomly hatch one of 9 different dinosaurs! (including vanilla)

NOTE: I have reached out to user Digitalsabre/The Saboratory for official permission to use their assets. I will update this as soon as I get a response.
