Official Downloads

Addax

This is an official bonus download that was available under "Extras" on the old zootycoon.com website and was packaged in Zoo Tycoon 2: Ultimate Collection but, unlike most other official downloads, never with the individual expansions. One who purchased Zoo Tycoon 2: Extinct Animals should have every download except this and the Asiatic Black Bear. This download is uploaded here for those who had purchased all the expansion packs and do not wish to purchase Zoo Tycoon 2: Ultimate Collection solely to acquire an otherwise-discontinued download that was free (the only other difference between UC and all expansions individually is the silver user interface).

  • Download: .z2f Here! and .dl Here! (right click and hit "save as" for the .dl file, otherwise it will open in browser)
    This download normally came with a .exe installer, but it is unable to detect the ZT2 installation directory (at least with Ultimate Collection) and fails so the files were extracted directly from the installer and are, indeed, the 100% authentic version of the download.
    This download may be placed directly in your main ZT2 directory and it should work naturally. However, optionally for its more authentic installation, enter the DLC folder within the ZT2 directory and then enter the zootycoon_com_zt2_1033 folder (the 1033 meaning English, as it is the only language this download file includes). Paste the .dl file directly into that folder and then create a new folder within that directory and name it 1029_1.0 and paste the .z2f file into that folder.

Asiatic Black Bear

This is an official bonus download for the PC game that was distributed as a reward for accomplishments in the mobile version of the game but was never made readily available without the reward code and the link is currently dead. It was not included in Zoo Tycoon 2: Ultimate Collection.

Unofficial Patches

Asiatic Black Bear Filter Fix

  • Author: Jntg4

This download moves the Asiatic Black Bear from the "Zoo Tycoon 2 Content" filter (a wastebasket taxon for any animal or object without a specified filter) to the "Downloaded Content" filter to distinguish it from the core game animals and to make it easier to find with the other official downloads.

DevComp Removal Hack

  • Author: mjmannella01

This download restores game objects that have cannot be purchased due to a DevComp tag and allows them to be bought. The Killer Penguin Adopt Hack is not needed if this hack is already installed.

  • REQUIRES all expansions (otherwise items not included in an owned expansion pack will appear on menu and crash the game)
  • Download: Here!
    This download can be placed in your main ZT2 directory.

Farm Animals Hack

  • Author: mjmannella01

This download implements the Sheep and Shetland Pony as full animals in the game. The Sheep is included in the game files but never used while the Shetland Pony is used only in the Shetland Pony Ride normally. This hack also implements the game's pellets and pellet dispensers. The content will appear under the "Downloaded Content" filter.

Killer Penguin Adopt Hack

  • Author: Jntg4

This download does not code the Killer Penguin as a new animal but simply removes the one line of code that prevents it from being adoptable. The penguin will show up under the "Extinct Animals" filter. This is not necessary if the DevComp Removal hack is installed.

Placeable Lab Failures

  • Author: mjmannella01, Jntg4 and Lgcfm

This download makes the four selectable ambients that result from failures in cloning extinct animals available as live scenery items that may be purchased and placed as the player desires. This includes the Giant Bullfrog, Giant Monarch Butterfly, Spring Hare and Squirrel. For the Killer Penguin, see the Killer Penguin Adopt Hack.

Zoo Tycoon 2: Dino Danger Pack Filter Change

  • Author: Jntg4

This download moves all content from Zoo Tycoon 2: Dino Danger Pack to the "Extinct Animals" filter as all the animals from the Dino Danger Pack were remade in Extinct Animals and the newer expansion includes the entire old premium download. This leaves just one filter to sort through the Extinct-themed content rather than two. This is fully compatible with the Dino Danger Pack Restoration hack.

Zoo Tycoon 2: Dino Danger Pack Restoration

  • Author: mjmannella01

This download makes additional copies of the dinosaurs and objects from Zoo Tycoon 2: Dino Danger Pack that were overwritten in Zoo Tycoon 2: Extinct Animals and restores the pack's original form. The dinosaurs' names are prefaced with "DDP" and some animations changed between the release of Dino Danger and Extinct Animals that are not switched back by this hack, but otherwise this pack allows its downloaders to essentially acquire this otherwise unavailable official content. This is fully compatible with the Dino Danger Pack Filter Change hack.

User Content

Arabian Pony

  • Author: Artifex (original animal), mjmannella01 (Shetland coding base), Jntg4

This download adds a 22nd animal to Zoo Tycoon 2: Arabian Nights by making its Arabian Pony from the Arabian Pony Ride into a full exhibit animal.
