The core files for the Giddy-up! series. Does not add anything on its own but the other mods in the series depend on it. The purpose of this series is to add mounting in as many aspects of the game as possible. Each mod released in the series will focus on one major aspect.
Any animal can be used as mount, even modded animals, and no patches are needed. By default, small animals are disabled. There is one thing to take into account when adding modded animals. Pawns are by default drawn on top of- and in front of the animal. However, sometimes it looks nicer when pawns are drawn behind the animal (most of the times this is when the animal has a long neck or when it has horns). The drawing priority can be configured for each animal in the mod options. For vanilla animals these settings are already configured, but for modded animals you may need to change the drawing priority for some animals in order to make it look nice.
This will allow me to gradually release new mods that involve mounting, without having to publish and maintain duplicate code that handles mounting for each release. I could have chosen for one big mod instead, but I like to give people the choice of what they want to install. Moreover, this simplifies testing for me, and enables other developers to use my code in their mods.
