Can't get my game to run - missing file?

Hello everyone,
I grew up with the Creatures series and loved it. having some big time nostalgia pangs, I got Creatures Exodus off of GoG hoping that I can better appreciate its complexities as an adult.

Followed the wiki guide to install the game and to download all of the essential patches/fixes and quality of life stuff as well as all of the official Norn breeds and the "True Warmblood Creatures". (I figured I'd go back for the other stuff after playing the game).

At first the game wouldn't load and I realized it was because of the Awkwood Creeper patch. I thought I had downloaded the Hardman Norn pack but it turned out it was just the Norn breed breed itself. So I removed that.

Now the game wont load because it says it's missing a file called "so.s16" and I can't figure out what or where it could be, even after reinstalling the whole thing. Creatures 3 by itself loads fine, this seems to be something Docking Station needs. I just don't know what else to do, so now I'm here.

Anyone who wants to see these error messages needs to right click and select "view image" (assuming desktop browser). I don't know why they aren't showing up full-sized.

Thank you Malkin! that actually was the fix. I put that .c16 file into my Docking Station folder and now everything works.
