I was playing stonehearth just a moment ago, and I was looking at my sheep. I noticed that one had a golden heart icon above it’s name plate. I hovered my mouse over it, and it said the sheep was loved, and explained that it made the sheep provide more wool and offspring. Then I got thinking of how the loved system could make an impact in the future. Specifically, chickens producing eggs that hatch (or you just need a rooster…) yaks making more milk and having hair suitable for a coat of sorts, so on and so on. Then I started thinking about wool. Then I found it odd that sheep just instantaneously go from naked to a full body of wool. Perhaps sheep could get their wool more gradually in the future? Not only that, but could mutton have more of an advantage in the future as well?
Tell me guys what you think and I’ll see ya later!
They could feed from the grass like they do IRL, possibly give grass a quality rating similar to soil so that frequent grazing causes the quality to drop and forces the player to move the sheep onto greener pastures.
