A Sturdy Sled is a vehicle which can carry four objects. When empty the Sled can be equipped to your Backpack equipment slot for easy transport. Right-click the Sled and choose "Pick up" when it is standing on the ground to equip it, and Ctrl + Left-click the Sled on your equipment screen to drop it to the ground again.
You load objects onto the sled by first carrying them (Adventure -> Lift) and then Right-clicking the Sled. The object will be represented as a sack on the Sled. To retreive an object from the Sled, Right-click the sacks.
To pull the Sled when it is loaded, Right-click it and choose "Pull". To stop pulling, Right-click the sled again and choose "Stop".
The sled can be built with Carpentry + Blacksmithing.
Also, Fishing Rod decay halved.
This is the prototype for sleds. We'll be adding a cheaper, makeshift one, shortly. Enjoy!
EDIT: Oh, and animal corpses are persistent now.
