As the topic says I'm in the market for a mod that allows one to breed any or farm animals such as cows, chickens and the like.  I went hunting on the nexus site to see what was there but i could not find anything. 

 

I was wondering and hoping if someone out there would be willing to produce such a mod, as it would complement some other mods i have such as tundrea defence along side farm anywere. 

 

The main idea ofcoures is to allow the player to (either at a specified location or anywere in the world) have a place to create and animal and breed it. For example one gets a chickens egg.  

 

In some way shape or form(up to the modder) in set to "grow/hatch" producing a chicken. then once the player has two or more can be allowed in some way shape or form to breed them and make a third chicken. 

 

The idea is a bit rough in my head at the moment, so i hope you guys at least get what I'm trying to get at. 

 

If you have any questions comments  or concerns, i will check this post frequently and answer as best as i can. 

 

Thanks in advance, shadowstart220

I like this idea! I'm new to modding and have not yet done anything, so I don't know what the limitations are, BUT considering how simple it is to duplicate an existing item, including actors, and how simple it is to resize things, I'd think this mod would not be too difficult. Chicken nests could could be set to respawn daily, with a percentage chance of not respawning (and maybe it can somehow check to see that chickens exist on your plot of land?) You could have a structure like a barn used that you interact with--prompts that ask you which animals you want to breed, depending on what you own. Baby animals could be smaller versions of the adults, maybe with a retexture applied as needed. Seems like this would doable! I have yet to even LOOK at how to mod, but based on what else I've seen this seems like it shouldn't be overly difficult to create.

Update: I've loaded CreationKit and started the tutorials. The first thing I did was check out the animals. Guess what? The game only provides male animals! All those eggs are being laid by roosters. :D So I guess that would be the first step. I'll continue looking into this and keep you posted.
