A great place to give feedback on updates like these, suggest new features and content is the official Discord Server, where anyone is welcome :D Discord invite link: https://discord.gg/FAFgrKD This update adds a new critter system and with it, a bunch of smaller animals that roam the world. At the moment they don't have much of a function, other than look cute and make the world more alive. Later down the line, they will be used for settlement related content and other stuff. Other than the new animals, the update brings some more updated textures and other smaller changes. See the full changelog below.
