How To Tame Creatures
Once you had unlocked Tame command, you can now control creature in Atlas. There are two ways, you can go outside in wild and tame any animal, but this can be risky or you can build Taming Pen, this is more like a Trap you will construct to attract and catch animals. You can wait for animals to enter and then safely control them. The structure is more like a big cage where you can create walls, a big gate for animal to enter and a exit door for you to escape out. Keep a small window or opening on ceiling to shoot the animal.
In Taming Pen, once the animal walks inside close the gate to trap them, exit from a back door and hit the animal to lower its HP to 20%. It will not attack you after this, go near and find what food the animal requires. Place the food in the last slot of hotbar and press E to feed the animal.
