    I would suggest looking as mods such as purchasable pets for inspiration on how to make the drone dock
    Also could you make it available to other races? via the the Avali crafting tables?

    The problem with mods like Purchasable Pets and Pets Critters is that they get around the issue by changing how pet houses work entirely, making the house itself a spawner. I'm trying to make a second pet house work within the framework of the original pet house code, and that's...turning out to be rather hard.

    What I might do is upload a version compatible with Purchasable Pets and be done with it, and yeah, the drone dock would be craftable via a nanolathe rather than purchasable.

    Oooh I see (I apologise I'm not a modder myself)
    I hope it all works out, good luck :hylotl:

    Alright, as it turns out, you were right to suggest looking at Purchasable Pets! Unpacked the Purchasable Pets assets and, lo and behold, even though they do change how pet houses work, they do it with a modified petbehavior.lua, and I was able to use their edit as a way to get the drone dock working within the normal framework. You're awesome.:up:

    How do you get the drone to show up?
    I thought you'd have to craft the dock but when I do it doesn't show up

    This isn't like Purchasable Pets (and probably isn't compatible with it as is), the dock is functionally just an ordinary pet house. The pet itself should already be there, same as a vanilla pet, when you start the game, and at the moment it's only for Avali as their racial pet.

    Although later on I'm thinking of either adding compatibility with Purchasable Pets, or making optional drone replacers for each of the vanilla race's pets. Maybe both, I don't know.

    So the pet will only show if I start a new game?

    That depends. What other mods are you running? If you have purchasable pets, then no, unfortunately, as that mod cancels all ship pet generation beyond the purchasable house spawners.
    If not, the pet should already be there. If you already had the cat placeholder running around the drone should just straight up replace it without any trouble.

    Eagerly waiting for this on steam workshop so I can add it to my collection! =D

    I'm afraid the forum version will have to do for now, for all my mods, because I really don't want to mess with steam workshop at the moment. Not just because I'm borderline phobic of trying new thing (though I am), and not just because it looks like an obtuse pain to figure out (though it does), but because I've been hearing about some issues with the workshop cropping up lately, and I'd like to wait and see if things get sorted out before I make a final decision.

    Ah alright, I was just preferring the steam workshop for no fuss install, automate update and actually make a collection that I can easily share with my friends. Thanks for the mod still!

    Don't suppose you could make a buyable version as some people in my group don't care for pets so we role the buyable pets mod.

    I'm actually working on that right now and it should be ready sometime later this evening. The update will split the mod into two versions, one purchasable pets compatible, and one vanilla, and as an extra both will make the pet house a platform for placing objects.

    The pet spawns just fine for me from the various docks with the Purchasable Pets version by the way.

    Also I see you added the top collision to the drone dock that I mentioned. :]
