Keeping in mind the importance of food supply, we’ve also including husbandry. Dedicating some time to this activity allows you to keep a good supply of meat, milk, wool, leather, feathers and turd!

  • There are currently 3 species pre-configured, but as usually you can add more with XML configuration.
  • Each species has male and female animals.
  • Males are much rarer than females. It is believed that due to their more aggressive behavior, they are commonly targeted by zeds, making them rarer and rarer.
  • You can capture animals in the wild, but using a taming tool - the whip. Taming success is based on your husbandry skill. If you fail a taming action, you will hurt the animal. If you fail enough times, you will KILL the animal.
  • Each tamed animal will actively look for food. If there is no food available for an extended period, they will eventually die.
  • Each tamed animal has its own individual stats. For this first version, I consider feed level and loyalty.
  • A well feed animal will have higher chance of breeding successfully.
  • The same way, a more loyal animal will also breed better.
  • Loyalty also influences animal reactions to humans. A untrained animal will always run away from humans. In time they may stop running, or even approach any nearby human as they start associating them to food.
  • Every tamed animal can be harvested. If you use the correct harvesting tool on the correct animal, you will be able to harvest him without killing it. Harvesting success is based on your husbandry skill. If you fail a harvest action, you will hurt the animal. If you fail enough times, you will KILL the animal.
  • By default all animals look for troughs for food, and eat hayBale.
  • The current tools are a wooden bucket to harvest cows and pigs, and a scissor to harvest sheeps and rams.
  • If you successfully capture an animal, you will receive the corresponding item. That item preserves the individual stats of the capture animal, so you should be able to trade trained animals.

Chicken Coops and Rabbit Hutches
There are 3 different types of power:
We also include Chicken Coops and Rabbit Hutches

  • You will need to “capture” wild chickens and rabbits, with rabbit and chicken traps (box traps).
  • Once captured you can put them inside the coop or hutches.
  • They will need food/water inside the coop/hutch to survive.
  • If there are 2 or more animals in the coop/hutch they will start trying to reproduce.
  • Each coop / hutch has a max number of animals it can hold (currently 4).
  • Chickens eat wheat and water (water bucket, lasts for a good while)
  • Rabbits eat carrots and water (water bucket, lasts for a good while).
  • Habited Chicken Coops will “produce” feathers and eggs.
  • Habited Rabbit Hutches will “produce” turds.

Box Traps
Box traps are used to capture chickens and rabbits. You can bait them with wheat to increase the chance of attracting one of those animals.
