How Can I Change Creature Frequency?
« on: September 03, 2017, 03:48:57 pm »

I'm looking to modify the frequency that animals occur on the map. I have only the vaguest idea of how to do this, having to do with going into the files and changing a number for the particular species that determines how much it gets dumped into the world during worldgen.

Or...you could select lowest setting on savagery when creating the map or embark on small maps.... both these options will cause lower andweaker reatures to appear on your map...
