Retain some items after death

Sometimes it can be very frustrating to step into a wrong neighborhood. So some of the most crucial items earned well deserved don't-fall-out-of-an-inventory protection.

Recipes definitions improvements

Unlocking new recipes should be way less overwhelming and will make so much more sense.

New animals - Alpacas, Jackals and Coyotes

Amazing, right?! Btw. did you know that internet claims that Alpacas are thought to have been domesticated more than 6 000 years ago? You should tame one too!

Camera improvements (interpolation)

Let's skip the technicalities and put it like this: Great performance improvement on high-end setups.

About the better Performance.
I would say i have a pretty high end PC and a 144hz Monitor. 
I was always Getting arround 120FPS on 4k but it always looked like 60. 

Now it actually feels a lot smoother like actual 120 Fps.
