    So, I'm currently in the early stages of planning a South American tropical hall for a upcoming project for my YouTube channel. I try to strive for realism, to a point. There's obviously things I can't replicate in the game that is possible in real life. Anywho, what are some good primate choices for the exhibit? They have to be primarily herbivores, I don't need them munching on my birds.

    If you're planning on mixing South American primates with birds, you should stick to the small monkeys: tamarins, marmosets, squirrel monkeys, titis and sakis. Larger monkeys like spider, howler, and capuchin might be too disruptive/destructive to mix with birds, and might not be great to mix with people. I'm assuming this is a walk-through hall based on your explanation?

    I feel Marmosets or Tamarins would be the best choice, they would fit best in a bird house due to their small size

    It is. I plan on there being more birds then anything else with a few smaller mammals like agoutis.

    Agoutis would be fine. I don't exactly know what's possible in the game, but a small tortoise species and a pond with Amazonian fish would be possible IRL as well. Also a sloth or Prehensile-Tailed Porcupine.

    Mods are very extensive for this game, so a lot of that stuff can easily be acquired. In fact, I don't know that there even are any New World primates already present in-game, so mods are necessary from the get-go.

    While I would love a tortoise species for my tropical hall the only available Red foot model is quite old and therefore not really a option. There is another that was shown off as a wip but was never released; the creator has been inactive since November of last year. But I was considering a stand in of another small tortoise species, any suggestions?

    All you really can do is Red-Foot or Yellow-Foot.

    Actually I just got word from a designer that I'll be able to use a new model he's never released. So score
