Note:
Supposedly, since patch 1.66 and 1.67 didn't alter any resources this mod edits, this mod shouldn't require updating and should be compatible.

Update 31/10/2013
-Updated to work with patch 1.63.
-Changed so that rarer collectibles appear less frequently (I think I've caught extraordinarily unusual butterflies too often in my test).
-Added nanite spawner for the mod.

----------

This mod enables all EP-specific collectibles (gems, metals, butterflies, beetles, fireflies, and nanites) to be spawned with their respective epic spawners.

Originally, only base game collectibles will spawn with the epic spawners; e.g. Vampire's Eye or Bloodstone will never spawn when you place the Epic Gem Spawner. With this mod, it's now possible for all collectibles to spawn if you just place this spawner. This also simplifies so that you don't have to place each of every spawner to make sure they appear in the world. You only just need this one spawner.

This mod modified the following spawners so they can spawn all types of collectibles:
  • Gem Spawner - Epic: This spawner will also spawn WA, AMB, LN, and SN gems
  • Metal Spawner - Iron/Silver/Gold: This spawner will also spawn WA, AMB, and LN metals
  • Butterfly Spawner - Epic: This spawner will also spawn WA butterflies, LN will-o-the-wisp, and ST fireflies
  • Beetle Spawner - All: This spawner will also spawn WA, LN, UL, and ITF beetles
  • Nanite Spawner - Bot Workshop: This spawner will spawn all nanites, as opposed to only *several*
This mod is useful for collectors like me. Now you can place one epic butterfly spawner at the park, for instance, and you can make sure that you may find the butterfly you need there one day.

This is not a cheat mod of some sort. I only made so that every EP collectible is possible to be spawned in these epic spawners, since it's unfair if they only spawn base game collectibles. Every collectible has equivalent chance to spawn as they should: common spawns the most often, uncommon spawns less often, rare spawns rarely, and extraordinarily unusual spawns very rarely -- this mod does not make you find rare collectibles more easily.

Note
  • This is very strange, but there are 6 base game metal spawners, but only one appears in the buydebug. The other 5 seem to be hidden all along? I don't know, but this mod will unlock the following hidden metal spawners: Metal Spawner - Silver, Metal Spawner - Gold, Metal Spawner - Palladium, Metal Spawner - Plutonium, and Metal Spawner - Iron/Silver/Gold
  • Even though I said this is not a cheaty mod, I actually tweaked so that WA destination collectibles will also spawn outside their destinations. Without this, gems like Alabaster or Jade will not spawn in the base world even if you've placed the spawner. How often they will spawn still depends on their rarity though.
  • This mod includes Will-O-The-Wisp fix, inspired by Shimrod's mod. This mod will conflict with his since we both modified the same resources. Use only one.
  • There's no epic spawner for nanites, so I had no choice than to use the one for Bot Workshop.

Conflict
This mod will conflict with any mods that modify RockGemMetal.XML, Insects.XML, Metal Spawner - Silver.OBJD, Metal Spawner - Gold.OBJD, Metal Spawner - Palladium.OBJD, Metal Spawner - Plutonium.OBJD, and Metal Spawner - Iron/Silver/Gold.OBJD resources. Since these XML resources are master lists, they might need to be updated if new patch is released.

Compatibility
This mod works with patch 1.63.

Even though it says it requires WA, AMB, LN, SN, UL, and ITF, this mod will function if you only own some of the EPs. The game will just not spawn WA butterflies if you don't have that pack. You can use this mod even if you don't have any EPs at all, but it will just be useless.
