First topic message reminder :

Hello everyone. I came up with an idea that I thought would be fun to do and share progress on. Zoo Tycoon 2 remains one of my favorite games and I know that many others still enjoy it as well. As such, I believe that the forum should have a mascot to represent the site in the game. A decision was made that the animal of choice should be a parrot, and so it is this parrot I will be working on and showing progress on. There will be aspects to the parrot that have not been decided on yet, such as a name and what should be featured in the Zoopedia but that can come later.

So here we go! I chose to start with the Spix's Macaw from ZTABC Teams Aves expansion pack. The macaw's model is my base but I have made a few small edits to the model.

Here is the edited model:

I may make more model edits. If I do, I think I'll make the wings wider, but this is a start.
For the skin of the parrot, I intend to make it blue and gray to match the forum.

I hope to have regular updates to show you guys, but for now, enjoy the brief preview and perhaps be thinking of a name! But don't share name ideas just yet.

I know the parrot is long overdue but I am still working on it when I get the chance. While I don't have images at the moment, I have updated the skins on the male, female and young. I will soon be updating the sick and dirty skins to reflect these changes. I am also working on fixing some coding yet to get the parrot to behave as desired. On the bright side, the parrots do flock properly when they decide to do such. On another note for coding - the parrot will not be coded to require the RR biomes but it does work fine with RR.

It looks very good. What species is it?

Thank you. It is a fictional species actually. But I would say it does take inspiration from the Spix's Macaw.

A long overdue update! I changed the skins on the male, female, and young. Not a huge change but just enough. Along with this, I have given all three their own sick and dirty skins. There's just one more coding quirk to figure out and then this time, it will be ready for release! I know I said that last time but I couldn't resist fixing up the skins and giving them new sick and dirty skins.

At long last the Macaw has been released! I hope everyone enjoys it. Keep an eye out in the future for possible updates to it and future project announcements!

I always love it when people create more birds for ZT2! Well done!

Good parrot model. @silverwren: I may (if you want to) code your parrot to be compatible with RR biomes.

Thank you for the offer, I really appreciate it! However, I'll code it. I need to learn and from the looks of it, it should be fairly simple, but still, thank you again for the offer!

The RR-compatibility codes are quite simple, but remember to add them to egg-coding as well. I'm waiting for the parrot to see it in game. Good luck with the coding!
