I definitely think grounded needs taming. And I've though about how you could just hatch ant eggs and keep them as pets. Then you could assign them to a pallet to make them keep it full of stems or grass so that you reward the grind at the end by eliminating some of the grind. Then you could take lady bugs and make them mobile pallets. You have to fill it yourself but you could build a weed or grass pallet on its back and have it follow you to make building in harsh or scarce areas feasible. Also it would be awesome to tame flying creatures as mounts.
