Cows, milk and herds

Alpha 1.12 is meant to be about dangerous creatures, but I am also adding other stuff. Apart from flat world and new move control you’ve already seen, there are two kinds of cows: black and brown. And they can be milked:

The new spawning system for animals creates herds, which is much nicer than random single animals. Also the AI has a new behavior that tries to keep the animals together, that is if an animal strays too far, it will try to get back. I want to add another behavior that will make bulls very protective about the cows. If you milk or attack a cow (which are defenseless) all the bulls in the herd will be after you :-)

Dangerous creatures are there as well, but aren’t finished enough yet.

    Any plans so we can spear bulls for grilled ribeyes via a furnace or leather for armor? Looks awesome.

    Just a thing I wanna know… (sorry if you’ve already said that) Do the animals can be saved in a place? When I catch a bull, for exemple, I put it in fences, I go far way, but the bull isn’t there when I come back.. Does the “bug” is fixed?
    (sorry if my english is not very good) :/

      No, this is not done yet. I need to work out a way to do it properly both from the technical and gameplay side. It’s not trivial.

    Kaalus could you try sloping in another type of weapon in this update?

    Spears are great but I would like a specialized melee weapon like a sword.
    With new dangerous creature your going to have to flesh out the combat a little. Armor is another thing that would be useful.

    Could you add domestic animals like dogs and cats and could you add multiplayer so two people can play at the same time

      Ya that’s a good idea or something at the bottom and you should also make a tracker so you can track animals.
