How To Tame Animals?


#1

Donkey - Carrots
Dodo - Apple
Scorpion - Strawberry’s (i don’t know name for them lol they are found on the cactus)
Drop Bear - Pine (I think)
Cave troll - Gold Coins
Yak - Wheat


#2

Each animal also requires a certain amount of positive feedings for them to be tamed. Injuring and animal and feeding it counts as a negative feed and does not contribute to the taming proccess, it only prolongs it.

The ‘strawberries’ are prickly pears.

Hmm, I haven’t met a cave troll to tame in 1.7 yet. It eats gold coins? What about platinum ones? :laughing:


#4

And sharp?


#5

They are called Prickly Pears.
Sharks - Raw Fish
Fish - Kelp


#6

Correct.


#7

They only eat gold coins, not copper coins or platinum ones. That’s a good thing, otherwise we’d be spending platinum coins on taming cave trolls (although I wouldn’t really mind).

But you can’t cage Cave Trolls, which is sort of a pity. If caging them was possible, you could make a portable cave troll army…


#9

Anyone know if you have to hand feed the animals those items or let them eat through the feeding chest in order to tame them?


#10

You have to hand fed them
After you tame them, you can use a feeder chest to feed the animals


#11

Thank you! That certainly explains why after many blockhead days, they still are not tamed.

Hi im “new” to the forum (i know how it works by watching a friend and now i just joined) i want to know how to spawn a yak. They are rarish i saw one in the world i first created after the update but i killed it… Also i would like to know how to make plaster and where. I would appreciate some info thx!


#13

Yaks will spawn where there are hills and sustainable wheat.

As for plaster… This image should help:


The yak shavings can be obtained by shearing yaks with a razor.


#14

Thx! Wow its kinda a bit expensive since i still need to get steel to develop but whatever


#15

You’re welcome! I myself haven’t yet gotten the razor.

because I don’t have yaks. Or wheat for that matter...

#16

It seems to me all you need is wheat. It doesn’t have to be hilly.


#17

I guess that makes a bit more sense as “hilly” itself is a bit of a loose term. :face_with_monocle:


#18

Well, the ‘hilly’ I’m using has only one defini–
Wait.
opens dictionary
–Yes, only has one definition.


#19

I meant what you would consider as a hill in the game.


#20

Ooh, I’m so slow. Anyway, I’m dragging us off topic, sorry. :sweat_smile:


#21

Can any of you tell me how to “ride” the pets we tame?
