Summary

  • Players can now breed Horses, Llamas, Desert Ostards, Forest Ostards, and Frenzied Ostards (and potentially other future creatures) to create offspring with special and potentially rare hues
  • Each breedable creature is randomly assigned a Gender and a Fertility Rating (from 0% to 100%) which can be viewed in the Animal Lore window for the creature
  • Only Bonded (Level 1) creatures are breedable
  • Creatures with a Fertility Rating of 0% cannot be used for breeding


Overview

  • In order to breed mounts, players must have a Feeding Trough (craftable with Carpentry) that is locked down inside their house
  • Players can double-click a locked-down Feeding Trough to launch the Mount Breeding window
  • Players must add both a Male and Female creature of the same species they wish to breed to the Feeding Trough by clicking the “Add” button under each gender in the window and then targeting the respective creature they wish to use
  • Adding a creature to the Feeding Trough will “store” that creature inside the Trough
  • Players can click the “Remove” button to remove a creature currently marked for breeding and return them to the game world under the player’s control (if a breeding is currently underway, this will abort the process, however)
  • Once a Male and Female creature have been added to the Feeding Trough, players may click the “Start Breeding” button to begin the process

Offspring Growth

Once a breeding is underway, the offspring will take several days of “growth” to create, with growth amounts increasing hourly so long as the following occurs:

  • The Feeding Trough remains locked down within a house
  • The Feeding Trough has more than 0 Food
  • The Feeding Trough has more than 0 Water


Food

  • Players must provide Food to Feeding Troughs by clicking the “Add Food” button in the menu and targeting Fruits or Vegetables, which may be purchased from Farmer NPCs (found in all towns and many wilderness farm locations)
  • Food amounts in a Feeding Trough decrease as breeding growth occurs

Water

  • Players must also provide Water to Feeding Troughs by clicking the “Add Water” button in the menu and targeting any Watering Can, Water Bucket, Water Tub, or Water Barrel (i.e. water containers used by the Plant system) that contains water
  • Water amounts in a Feeding Trough decrease as breeding growth occurs

Offspring Delivery

  • When sufficient growth occurs, players may click the “Deliver” button to receive the new offspring into the game world under their control, with its hue determined by several factors (Parent Hues, Parent Fertility, Item Bonuses)
  • After each breeding, both parents lose 5% of their current Fertility Rating (flat reduction)
  • Mounts at 0% Fertility can no longer be used for breeding


Hue Ranges

Each breedable creature type (such as Horses, Llamas, Desert Ostards, etc) have multiple “Hue Ranges” possible that determine what possible breeding hues may result from that creature. When a breedable creature spawns in the wild, it is randomly assigned a Hue Range. A Hue Range consists of the following:

  • A Wild Spawn Hue (the basic hue for wilderness-spawned creatures)
  • Several Tiers of Special Hues
  • A Rare Hue


Breeding Hues

When a breeding occurs, there is a 50% chance the offspring will use the Hue Range of the Male parent, and a 50% chance alternatively to use the Hue Range of the Female parent. Upon breeding, the offspring will at minimum adopt the current hue of the randomly selected parent. However, if the parent has a Rare Hue, and then it will use that parent's highest Special Hue Tier instead.

  • If the selected parent has a Wild Spawn hue, there is a chance the offspring will “Upgrade” its hue to the first Tier of the parent’s Special Hue Tiers
  • If the selected parent has a Special Hue Tier hue, there is a chance the offspring will “Upgrade” its hue to one tier higher than the parent’s
  • There is always a small chance that an offspring will instead adopt the Rare Hue of the parent’s Hue Range, with chances scaled based on the parent’s Special Hue Tier level (with Wild Spawn Hue considered level 0)
  • The chance for an offspring to Upgrade its hue is (25% x Effective Fertility)
  • The chance for an offspring to adopt a Rare Hue is (5% x Effective Fertility x (Parent Hue Tier Level / Total Parent Special Hue Tiers))
  • If the selected parent is already at the highest Special Hue Tier, the offspring will won’t be able to upgrade, but instead will have double the normal Rare Hue chance

Effective Fertility is determined by (Male Fertility Rating + Female Fertility Rating + Breeder Skill Bonuses + Breeding Item Bonuses)

Breeding Skill Bonuses are determined by which player clicks the "Begin Breeding" button and are as follows:

  • 5% x (Animal Taming Skill / 120)
  • 5% x (Animal Lore Skill / 120)
  • 5% x (Veterinary Skill / 120)
  • 5% x (Herding Skill / 120)
