I have updated this mod further for RimWorld v1.0, upon seeing that Ludeon user "Caffeine Zombie" took the first and largest step to updating. A collection of patches and tweaks regarding animals. Horns, pack animals, and Thrumbo upgrades.

Original Mod Author's words and my updates can be found in the "Change Notes" linked here.
Original Mod

-Mods that add new animals are compatible
-Mods that alter Vanilla animal behavior are compatible (eg: what animals eat, hauling tendencies, etc..)
-Mods that alter Vanilla animal Defs are likely incompatible

Known Incompatibile Mods
Thrumbo Extension
Shear Those Corpses ACP -- Read here for a fix
More Pack Animals
Pack Mules Extended

My Credits:
kaptain_kavern for the original mod.
🦉 owl for Westerado compatibility
Ludeon Forum user "Caffeine Zombie" for the original RimWorld v1.0 update

A big Thank you to Oblitus : For fixing "pack animals" to be buyable.

@[author] Great mod! This is very much needed.

BTW: If you do get around to making an update, having patches for the Vanilla Animals Expanded series would be appreciated... and not just by me. Those mods seem rather popular.

That would be fantastic! All the best..

This only touches Vanilla animals... and eventually I'll get around to a rewrite of this mod.... but not just yet. Possibly include patches for the Vanilla Animals Expanded series

I am looking for a mod that lets the new Vanilla animals expanded mod animals like Gorillas, Megawolverine ect be used as pack animals, does this mod allow that? If not and there is a mod that does could someone please point me in that mods directions...Big thanks in advance :)

@LordShotGun; I'll look into it.

Megasloths are not pack animals in this mod which kinda sucks, always had a fondness for them.

@Zymex; It should. I use Animals Logic to do the same thing as hardworking animals and it functions just fine.
Zymex Aug 17, 2019 @ 2:24pm 
does this work with hardworking animals? =)

@Dr Zhivago Thanks, will do!

@Powdah; I don't believe I personally made those art assets and there wasn't a license that came with the original mod, so it seems fine to do. Go for it.
