Animal Ark Shelter 1.3

New Rockstar-Like DLC with innovative menus and more to make it feel like an official Pet DLC!

Place AnimalArkShelter.dll, AnimalArkShelter.ini into your "scripts" folder. You will need Script Hook V and .NET Script Hook and NativeUI.


J - Open Pet Interaction Menu

The control can be edited via the .ini file and the interaction menu only opens when you have a pet.

Animal Ark is now open and ready for business! With this mod, you can go to the once abandoned Animal Ark Pet Store, which will be a new location on your map, and buy a pet. Once you buy a pet, you will be granted access to a new interaction menu called the, "Pet Interaction Menu", which will allow you to do certain things with your pet, such as making them attack a nearby pedestrian, teleport to you, and much more which will be added in future updates. If you have a pet and revisit the store, you can buy them snacks to heal or donate them back.

    @jedijosh920 Hey, there are a few places in LS that actually are pet shops, in Korean Plaza, near LS Customs in R.Hills and next to Te qui lala, it would be great if you could add those places, because travelling until the desert just to buy an animal might be tedious sometimes...

    @Phnx you can! You just need to buy the pet you want with a main character. After that select the mp player you play as you usually do and press j then select follow with arrow keys and press enter!

    @Vandous Good to know. Thanks! :D

    @Phnx I made a mistake actually. You first need to play catch with your pet then select follow. Or you can go into the pet shop with your mp character and exit, your pet will follow you!
