Quick question...when I click on "downloads" in the bar at the top of the forum, it doesn't take me to the DL site.  Is it supposed to?  I don't mind coming to this post every time I want to get to the DL site.  But, I'm just confused.  Sorry to create more work for you guys, even if the work is just trying to make sense of this post!

To reach the downloads site use the link in the 1st post ^^^ above. To Submit a file to the site for testing and then release you click the Downloads link at the top of the page in the menu bar.

For those of you having difficulty with the downloads sites here is a picture tutorial of how to go about accessing the files.

Remember you Do Not have to be a member of the downloads sites to be able to download files from ZA's downloads. Registration at the downloads sites has been disabled and the sites are fully accessable by guests.

Next post starts the tutorial

Scroll down the page a little to see the category Titles and the different topic titles just like you would browse around ZA itself

Click on a tiopc title. In this example I have used Real Animals in the Animals category. You will now see an alphabetical listing on all the files we have in that topic. Please remember to check for additional pages in the topics. Not all will appear on one page.

If the listings start at letter "Z" just click on the word "Subject" to reverse the order so "A" listings are the first you see.

Next you click on the post you want to look at in this example I have used the Ardwolf by Devona.

When looking at a post if a file has been updated for any reason or if it conflicts with another file located at another site there will be notes listed in the post. Be sure to read over the information in the post so you can make note of any updates or conflicts.

At the bottom of each post is the word DOWNLOAD or the words DOWNLOAD HERE usually in red or green and bold print. This is a link to the file so you can download it so just click on it.

After you click download you should have a box come up like in the pic always click SAVE and save the file to your computer first.

All files you download from ZA will be in zip file format so you will need winzip or other file compression program to extract the ZTD file to install in your game.

Never use the ingame file installer to install files to ZT 1. Always use copy and paste to install files to your dlupdates or updates folder.

Yellowrose,

I downloaded the CC Bonus Content Zoo from the ZT1 Downloads site, and I have a question about the Bowhead whale exhibit. It's in a Central location up in front of the zoo where the guests come in and there's paths all the way around it, well, one Bowhead said the exhibit was fine, but the other one said it was "feeling crowded by too many guests". It's a huge ehhibit and I'm wondering if I should make it all non see through or just part of it and which part? I have know idea where to start.

What I would do is start with adding solid wall to each side of the tank leaving approx 3 rows open area on each side and see if that helps. The guests will still be able to see into the tank and the whale may feel it has a little more privacy.

The download that is in the "Lang MSBF" post at the ZA ZT1 download site contains 3 files: a ".dll", a ".ztd", and a ".txt" file that explains how to use the ".dll". There were a number of official downloads. These official downloads were also included in CC. In both cases, there were 15 ".dll" files that were made available to make those downloads work. The lang050MS.dll is just a ".dll" file that combines these 15 separate ".dll" files. Since there are enough other combined ".dll" files from various sites that I do not have to worry about reaching ZT's ".dll" limit, I do not use lang050MS.dll. But it is nice to know it is there if ever needed.

I do not fully understand the yeti01.ztd. One of the changes was to change the yeti's habitat from Tundra to Highland. According to the description in the download post, it looks like it was also intended that the yeti would no longer appear in the animal purchase menu of scenarios. I do not know if it actually does this, since I do not play scenarios. And the configuration looks like there is an inconsistency. In any case, this change causes it to want to get messages from ".dll" files instead of from the animal configuration. So if you use it without lang050MS.dll, you will see "Adopt a Yeti.  Long Tooltip placeholder text." as its purchase menu tooltip. But if you use lang050MS.dll, you will see "Adopt an Yeti.  Yetis are elusive, solitary creatures. They prefer to sleep in snowy rock caves." instead.

Jay,

It places the yeti with the other Highland animals instead of placing it in amongst the Snow/Arctic Animals. And yes, it also removes the yeti from the Scenario list when there are only supposed to be a few animals available like in the first two Scenarios of ZT. I had just the Yeti01.ztd or whatever it was in my game and I'm one of those people that the slightest mispellings or errors bug me. Sorry. Needless to say, I downloaded the Pure Panda Hack but deleted the Yeti download.
