|GOG Remastered Patch v1.04
|Updates the GOG version of Creatures to allow some third party programs to run
|Don the Ambershee
|Corrects some bugs in the Creatures programming.
|Updates from version 1.02 or 1.03
|Creatures NT Install
|This allows Creatures to be run on an Windows NT operating system.
|If you are still using a floppy "egg disk" to access the Hatchery, then this update will make that unneccesary.
|Submarine SWS Update Cob
|Fixes problem of submarine sinking by replacing the Submarine with a brand new one. The image to the left is 50% of full size.
|This amazing cob allows you to have up
to 24 norns in your world.
It updates the incubator and mating scripts, so that both still function until there are 24 norns in the world.
It also allows ettins, shee and grendels to breed.
The remover reverts the limit to 12 norns.
|Sandra Linkletter (Slink)
|Black hole Fixer
|Fixes glitches in the game's ocean rooms that otherwise allow objects to drop out of existence.
|Better Bees and Beehives
|Switches the push and pull effects on the hives, also reclassifies bees as "pests".
(Norns of the Round Table)
|Makes the still invisible, useful if you have a version that is unactivatable.
|Jukebox & Pianola Update
|Updates these music makers, it was originally part of the Caveflies cob.
|Changes the classification of the radio from toy to music.
|Changes the classification of the robot, jack-in-the-box, and flibberdigibbit from bigtoy to toy, also removes the fear from the jack-in-the-box and the pain from the flibberdigibbit.
|Reclassifies the flies as "pest".
|Removes pain from playing with full coconuts and fixes other bugs.
|Probably my favourite update cob by Alex, it makes inedible eaten herbs invisible and allows you to click herbs to break off an edible piece!
|Removes pain from eating them and fixes the flying lemons. Jessica's version is prettier.
|Updated Shee Seed Launcher
|Reclassifies the launcher as a toy, and fixes various other features of the seewds and the beelacanths.
|Adds a script to periodically empty lifts of any creatures in them.
|Made more friendly to your creatures to eat
|Sets your world to always load with infinite scroll turned on, so you can travel the whole world by scrolling, without using cheats.
|Makes the cart under the great sea invisible to creatures to reduce the chance of them riding until they perish.
Carrots, Carrot Variant and Cheese
updates for these foodstuffs. Gone are pesky inedible carrot seedlings,
gone are painful to eat lemons and other fixes and improvements to the
scripts and graphics besides. The lemons gain new flowers and growth
Other cobs making use of the carrot/cheese/lemon scripts might not work as before, so be careful.
|Projector & Radio Update
|Changes the photos in the projector, reduces the flicker and makes the radio so it can sit on the ground if made movable.

|Changes the appearance of the Cable Car, the Projector's projections and the Computer, also changes it's screen saver.
