0001499: Some new underground creatures do not spawn
When you generate a new world, and look at the text export under the Underground Animal Populations header, you might notice that a few of the new underground creatures have no populations listed. These are magma crabs, helmet snakes, giant earthworms, and cave dragons. All of those lack the [LARGE_ROAMING] tag, and possibly the [LARGE_PREDATOR] tag in the case of the snake.

The giant earthworm might instead be missing vermin tags due to its small size, and the cave dragon might be deliberate - it seems to be similar to megabeasts.

When this gets fixed, 0003245 needs to get fixed along with it, otherwise magma crabs won't live very long.
