Already did, fun as hell :D


Shame that it's too late for the commercial. I bet they would have been fun to show off.

Fun fact. This has been possible to do for like 5 months now. You guys are just bad at finding stuff if I don't give you hints.

Looking forward for special someone owning somebody else using traps in some ingenious way.

I wonder if the shell bits are for turtle soup....

you did mention turtle soup back in the radish competition, and I've never given up looking for it.

We thought about it and explored something like this. Unfortunately, then the 'good traits' would need to be relatively balanced against one another or else players would simply always breed for the 'best' good trait to have and the 'least bad' bad trait to have. So instead we decided to drop this restriction.

Good Traits are

Longevity (How Long Until they die)
Productivity (How much milk a cow has, how much wool a sheep has etc.)
Size (How much Meat come off them)

Bad Traits are
Ornery (How easily they are upset and angered)
Vulnerability (How easily they become sick)
Metabolism (How quickly they need their next feeding).


Looking good, as long as animals with bad traits are usefull. Wurm had problems with traits becouse after some time animals with bad traits are just dumped after birth and after enough time you virtualy didnt had domestic animals with bad traits. Delicate system that need constant adjustments, but i like what is described till now...
