Default I made custom chickens, but I can only buy them from debug build mode.
Hello, I made some more chickn breeds as I love chickens but had to move out and thus away from my flock. I made currently two new hen types, but I can't buy them from the chicken coop. I want to be able to purchas my hennies from the coop when you click on "Purchase chickens"

I looked at the code for the chicken coop and it has a list of numbers pertaining to each kind of chicken it sells, but when I looked at a chicken's code I did not see the correlating number string anywhere inside. What is interesting is in the code comments it said "Avian chicken ...." where the files for the chickens do not have this title. In fact, I could not find any file with Avian in the title (I used Doc fetcher and still, nothing)

ooooh you beat me to it! I'm working on a Leghorn and a Delaware, and fluffing out some feathers and feet for Brahmas. Ran into the same problem.

I haven't tried yet, but I am hoping they can be made smaller with [ ] so we can make bantams.

Chickens can 100% be scaled with [ and ] I've seen people make giant ones in videos.

The string of numbers are more than likely hashed versions of the internal object names.

In order to add yours to the purchase menu you would more than likely have to override the original Purchase Chickens tuning which would mean it would conflict with any other creator adding their own custom chickens using the same method.

I have had no luck with it.

I followed the directions to the letter. Added the tag to reference the coop, made sure both my custom chickens and her mod are directly in the Mods folder. The.script file is in the Tray folder.

I also tried enabling testingcheatsenabled true, but it made no difference. What am I missing?

Why is the script in your Tray folder? It should be in your Mods folder. The Tray folder is for Lots and Sims.

I moved it to the Mods folder, and it made no difference.

Did you also enable script mods in your game settings?
