Breeding Plan





Download the latest release here.

  • The file values.json contains all the stats, default-multipliers and other values (taming, breeding), it can be edited and updated if necessary.
  • The image-files for the colored-creature-views have to be downloaded separately: Creature-Images. Extract the folder "img" in the application's folder to get better visuals of the creature's colors. Currently 7 creatures are included. You don't need to redownload this file if you already have the creature-images.
