Well, truth be told, we are thinking of adding a more in depth starting screen. This should help in a lot of ways, like allowing the world to gen around you, also allowing the spawn protection timer to run out.
Right now there is no way to get umbreon without spawning, HOWEVER, we do plan on adding a happiness system very soon. We just need to figure out the best approach in doing it.
thanks for the heads up on umbreon. great job so far!
