The Prototype Ranch was an early version of the Ranch that has existed in the prototype versions of the game.
The Home cell didn't change much, having only one plot moved. The Expansions that surrounded it, however, were much different. In the place of the Overgrowth existed the Pit, a prototype expansion which was seen in the reveal trailer. It only had two plots, and in 0.2.0 it was placed east of the Grotto and it was disabled. It existed there until 0.4.0, where it was removed. Saves with the Pit plots can't be opened in the current version of the game. There was also the Prototype Grotto, which went through three iterations, one of which having only existed for ~3 months. The second version also dropped the Indigo Quarry aesthetic, instead resembling a regular cave. All of the expansions were free to access. There were 17 plots present - 10 in the Home cell (later 8), 2 in the Pit, and 5 in the Prototype Grotto.
