Game Development

  • Hat Placement (2022-11-04) >"Implemented the ability to put hats on large domesticated animals: pigs, goats, sheep, cattle, and horses. Milage may vary as the equipment point is not specialized per hat. Mostly for teh lulz. Let us know what else should have hats, because we can have them most anywhere now."
  • Guided Ermine (2022-06-19) >"Added the ability to guide animals. If you have a leashed animal, you can right-click its leash and "Guide" the animal. The animal then walks wherever you click. Other animals your guided animal hits are "Shoo":ed. Cow Bowling intensifies. Pretty sweet. Should, in retrospect, have put this ability on the animal, rather than on the leash. May fix in the future."
  • Guided Ermine (2022-06-19) >"Added eaten fodder quality to the tooltip on the hunger meters on domesticated animals. Can now determine the average quality of their eaten fodder."
