Planned updates:

Seasonal Outfits
Our biggest priority right now, we really need some help with it, though.
Please message us on Discord if you're interested!

More Items
We're looking to add more interesting items. Including but not limited to food, forage and weapons.

Vanilla and Inter-mod Interactivity
The characters currently just exist in their own world.
We're going to add some dialogue to vanilla to really make Ridgeside come alive.
We're also looking to add interactivity with a select few other mods.
And so much more!
