Weird question - delete/supress an animal?

Ok, so, I have a phobia of one of the animals in the game, to the point that it is unpleasant even to type its name. No, its not one of the common ones.

Is it possible to remove an animal from my setup? Delete a file, edit something?

Or, would there be support for a suggestion of making animals individually opt-outable from within the game?

I know its a niche request, but its ruining my game experience a bit, browsing the animal trade table stresses me out! :cry:


PS: I cant explain it, its irrational, thats the definition of a phobia. Even though the animal is completely non-threatening in any way, I have a visceral reaction even if I catch a glimpse of this animal out of the corner of my eye, same as if you saw a car barreling out of control towards you out of the corner of your eye. Thats the best way I can describe it.

I know its bad, but I am super curious as to what the animal is that you have a phobia of. Especially if its not a common one people are phobic of.

It would be nice for people who have phobias to have this option. Like in Skyrim there was a mod that turned all the spiders in to bears, which was hilarious and effective. And in House Flipper they have an option to turn all bugs into piles of glass.

I'm all for making games more accessible, especially for folks with severe phobias. I don't have any animal phobias myself, but I have others and know how completely debilitating they can be. I wouldn't want anyone to miss out on PZ because their brain is a jerk.

It's a shame Frontier has no plans to open the game up to full mods.
 
Its slugs and snails. I said it was irrational!

I know about exposure therapy, but to be honest, it doesnt come up all that often, and there are many different hells I would prefer to that...

It had to be a giant species didnt it... if you surprised me with your "weird new pet" and brought one of those out to meet me, my freakout would be....well, itd be something. Pure fight or flight, with a pinch of panic. Naturally, the game version does not quite have that effect, Im not talking like its absolute torture to see it, it registers as mild phobic-flavoured unpleasantness. Still not exactly what you want sprinkled randomly through your game time.

To be fair, it cannot be an issue that comes up often in games design!

PS: thanks all! This is the internet, so I was obviously bracing myself for worse ;)
