------- Installation -------

2. Load the mod and play the game !

There is a Autoexec.cfg included in the zip file that will automatically load pet_config.cfg.
if you already have an Autoexec.cfg file, then just include 'exec pet_config.cfg' in one of the
lines. you can also type 'exec pet_config.cfg' in the console whenever the game loads.

------- Usage -------
1. Open any map or play a single player game (partially supported [teleporting]).
2. if you want the monster to be your pet then spawn them with the 'team' key set
to '0' or just spawn a monster with 'pet_' in front of their name.

example b: spawn monster_demon_imp team 0
spawn monster_zombie_fat team 0
spawn army_zsec_plasma team 0
spawn pet_revenant

------- Commanding Pets -------

NOTE: you can set the commands to any key by changing them in "pet_config.cfg" file

B - Select a pet and command it to move, attack, follow, or stay
V - Command all pets to move or attack
N - Teleports all pets to a new location

ONE PET
press B to select a pet. press B again on the selected pet and it will toggle the follow command.
After selecting a pet, press B to move to a position, or press B on an enemy (really you can target anyone)
and it will attack it.

ALL PETS
press V to command all pets to attack somebody or to move to a certain position. *If you want them
all to follow you, point downwards and press V.

TELEPORTING PETS
If your pets get stuck somewhere or cannot follow you (ei. if you climb a ladder) you can
teleport all your pets to a new location by pressing N.

ARCHVILE
If the you select an archvile, you can do some special commands:
1. If you target dead pets, the archvile respawn them.
2. If you target pets that are alive, the archvile will keep them alive (Auto Respawn)
3. if you target dead enemies, the archvile will respawn that enemy and will make it your new pet.

You can still tell your pet to follow and stay by 'talking' to them.
