GHC v0.924: Pets! Mecha! Easier scrolling!

It’s two releases for the price of one! I was just preparing to release v0.923 when two fairly serious but easy to fix bug reports came in. So, we skip straight past v0.923 on to v0.924. You can get it from all the usual places- Steam, itch.io, Patreon, and GitHub.

The big change this time around is the addition of pets. Characters who know Wildcraft at rank 5 or more can now call an animal companion. You can only have one active animal companion per character at a time. I have not yet put a limit on how many animals you can have in your FieldHQ… but if you have too many, 1) you have only yourself to blame, and 2) you can dismiss the companions back to the wild.

I have also overhauled the map navigation. WASD now works to scroll the map display, and you can turn off mouse scrolling if you want to. While I was at it I moved all (hopefully) the key definitions to the config file so you can remap anything. In a future release I will add in-game key remapping but now is not that day.

Two new mecha have been added: the Luna II and the Puma. Tons of bugs have been fixed. As usual, try it out and let me know what you think.
