We are getting ready for the 1.0 launch coming up soon, and one of the things on our “to-do list” is to get out the kickstarter pets pack which was promised so long ago in the time of old (only if you backed with 15$ or more). With that in mind, we have just activated the mod on Humble Bundle for people to download and try out. We will be making a real announcement post a bit later - this post is just to ask if you Discourse folks would be kind enough to try out the download early and make sure you can install it properly and that everything is working. If you folks could post any issues you are seeing with this mod (if any), we would appreciate it : D.
To test this mod: Once you get into the game you should see an option to “Include a random exotic pet” on the “Select starting resources” page as below. Just make sure the check mark is clicked and you should be good to go. Be wary - some of the pets require food that isn’t so easy to maintain, so it can be a little rougher on the outset of creating your new community while all of your hearthlings sacrifice food to keep your special pet alive ; ).
If you need help getting back to your Humble Bundle download, please reference our post from 2013: Download the Stonehearth Alpha (also, FAQ)!
