Get rid of or modify animal/deed ratio

One option not discussed, which is that if someone wants to increase the # of animals they can keep on a deed, they why not use the same function that was instituted for deeds with to many people?

 

You could check an option and double or triple the # of animals you could keep on deed but it would cost x2 times more coin.

 

This could be a functional option,  Or and I personally like this.

 

Add in the mechanic that branded animals have access to the faith bonuses of your deed.  So that as you go over the base populations, the deed healing bonus counters the chance of disease and miscarriage.

 

As far as I know, branded animals count towards the citizen count of a deed. So if you have more branded animals than your citizen count allows, your upkeep is already doubled. The function doesn't count unbranded animals, however. Is that what you mean?

It does not say this in the wiki, and I cannot find anything on the forums to support that.  Do you remember where you heard it?  because if it's true I'd like to know

-1 you won't spend a fortune. It would cost 1.2 gold to deed a 101x101 and 20s a month to maintain it. That isn't a fortune and quite cheap for massive amount of land.

Gives good buffer too so people don't walk into a lagfest.

I lived in the pre-ratio Wurm, and it was nearly impossible to go near some of the breeders. FPS would drop to single digits as soon as the mass of animals was rendered (and the lag didnt help either).

The creatures limit was small too, and finding wild animals was very rare too, I think that getting rid of the animal ratio would revert the game to that state, but with bigger numbers.

So if I have a 11x11 deed I have to make it bigger so I can keep two horses to pull my large cart? :huh:

No, an 11x11 deed is a total of 121 tiles. Given that you can keep an animal per 15 tiles you can keep 121/15 = 8 animals on deed. :)

I think the ratio we have now is not all that bad and I am fine with it staying as is. I think lag is the least reason I would down vote this. There are tons of deeds out there that have so many decorations, lamps, buildings it makes your computer choke and sputter for a bit until it all loads in and they do not have a decoration ratio.

There should be a compromise. Lower but don't get rid of it. I shouldn't have to get a huge land hogging deed I don't need or want to pay for. I use like 1/4 of the land for storage(junkyard) and the rest is for the animals leaving it looking empty. I do think 100's of animals are excessive but I want more then I have now. I definitely think how  animals are handled for the most part is flawed in just about every way though I've love some of the recent tweaks.

 

Idea/Question:

I wonder if how decorations in a house are not shown from a distance could work for animals. When they are in a building maybe they should not path and allow us to have multiple floors. I not sure if that could work though.

On one of my smaller deeds I hit a ratio of 10 with just a few horses, I do think this should be increased to a higher amount

+1, if people are afraid that it will reduce the spawns of wild animals we could just remove that spawn cap too. i'd like that a lot.

Just an informative for you.  Decor items while providing their own "lag" do not require constant server notifications updates and adjustments.  Animals have a program to execute, even the ones who stand there.  This lags out the server, not so much the player computer.  Where as the litter of items across a highly decorated deed causes client frame rate lag.

Removal of spawn caps would only work if there was actually a predatory/prey system.  Something that would naturally limit the total populations.

+1. because it would be nice to not have to deal with a bunch of off deed pens that can be broken into, when we want to go on a massive OP skillgain grind for animal husb. or milking.
