Dogs

Postby GigiBecali » Sat Dec 02, 2017 5:46 pm

Breedable Dogs which fit into 4 different categories: Hounds, Guarding Dogs, Pet Dogs, Attack Dogs.
New buildings/Items: Dog House/cage, Kennel, dog related stuff

1.Hounds - Hunting Dogs with a great sense of smell.
They are useful for tracking big game and leading you to it. Also they help you hunt rabbits or squirels.
Tracking range, responsivness etc. can be influenced by genetics.

2.Guarding Dogs - Big Dogs that will protect their master's claim. They bark and scare raiders who trespass or commit any crime inside their assigned claim, draining some Black Bile. If the raider succesfully bashes the walls and is inside the claim, the Dog will then attack him with Blood damage.
Bark drain, Dmg, agressiveness etc can be influenced by genetics.

3. Pet Dogs - Cute friendly dogs that will cuddle and love you. They spend most of their time laying on the sofa inside your house but can reduce insanity if you spend time with them. They can even drop your madness level if they are not busy sleeping or eating.
Chance of madness decrease, cuteness etc influenced by genetics.

4. Attack Dogs - Trained Dogs that can attack other pilgrims on command. Useful for raiding or just pvp fighting. Maybe a simmilar fear bear like debuff.
Same as above, characteristics influenced by genetics.


This is just an idea that I think would fit nicely into the game. I know there are other things of greater importance to be done but I just felt like writing it.
As I said, it is just an idea, Im open for criticism or improvements. I also tought of herding dogs but idk how they could work.

1. Can't work like that. Animals only come to existence when you load them with the map tile and exist only for 15-20 minutes if you're not looking at them. So there is simply nothing for a dog to track, unless you or someone else already looked there few minutes ago.

2 and 4 seem to do be the same thing. Barking does exactly what fear does and they both are aggressive animals looking for a fight with the enemy.

Also breeding concept = we have to kill and butcher dogs on a regular basis. That does not correspond with western idea of pet. IRL people breed dogs for sale, not for getting a better one to get rid of the old puppies.

actually, some people do breed them to get a better one... especially proffesional breeders....
