Can I turn gaia into a tree?

So, I've been playing around reskinning the basic game files like eggs and the hand, which I'm having a lot of fun with, but I'm guessing I cant touch agents people have made? One thing I love about creatures is its bio-mechanical theme, another is the Norse mythology somethings are named after which ties it in, loosely. If I can tie in some bio-mechanical designs based on Norse mythology, that would pretty much make my life...

This basically boils down to gaia. I'm tempted to try turning her sprites into a tree, but I dont know if I can, or should. I recall seeing someone say they wish they could help fix gaia, so I presume the creator doesnt want her messing with, or has just vanished. I cant help thinking if someone can throw together some coding to basically perform the ecology functions she does and just cut out the whole geat thing that would save people a lot of headaches... I absolutely love gaia and have used her in every world possible, but in my latest install I had to wipe out most of my files to fix some random crash caused by something clashing with her file... I still dont know what... Plus it'd kind of be more useful if she just automatically brought back extinct animals rather than being told to... I dont have time to run around and check what's extinct when creature fights are breaking out... Or some other agent is breaking...

So I'm wondering if it's possible or hard to create a world tree (Yggdrasil) to perform the same function. I'd put runes on it either way so it would be possible to input functions. I mean heck if I had the coding knowledge I'd play around with making an entire Norse mythology themed metaroom with some mystical and yet mechanical touches (similar to my favourite room ainarda) complete with ecology like magical deer, Freya's forest cats, and giant wolves... I could design and do all the art for a room that imitates the Norse universe with the tree and fields at the top and the different realms branching off into small rooms below accessible by roots... But I dont have anywhere near the coding skill or anyone to help with that, so I'll stick with the tree question for now lol.

the creator of gaia is Lis Morris, but i have no idea where you could contact her now, if AT ALL

people have made edits of her stuff before, including gaia (the DS version of her is unofficial), so i THINK you can do as you please with them? but i am not sure

but she is a VERY old agent so i'm not surprised that she bugs out so much. big shame she doesn't work that well D:
