Saddest Animal Stories
« on: January 25, 2018, 07:57:05 AM »

So I'm pretty new to the game. I have had my first colony for a couple of (real) months now, and I've only had to not save three times.

Okay, let's get on to the juicy story. My colonists were just mining some steel, and I get this notification saying a pack of yorkshire terriers have joined by colony. I was just like, great! That's exactly what I need! I have low food and now I have 7 more mouths to feed. I decided not to slaughter them because I am stupid, so I just kept them around. Later, half of them ended up getting cirrhosis, but that's besides the point. I ended up training them to fight. Worst decision of my life. Anyway, one of them was fighting a timber wolf, and got her back legs and front left paw bitten off. This yorkshire terrier was named ana (I did not choose the name). A couple of days later (in Rimworld time), I find out that Ana is pregnant! Fantastic! Now I have this incapacitated yorkshire who isn't capable of moving that is pregnant sitting the dining room. I found out that I could get prosthetics for my animals, so I installed the mod (A Dog Said). I sent one of my most useless colonists (it was my doctor) to go and install the prosthetics. As it turns out, she was getting married at that time. Oh Well! Ana the yorkshire is now up and moving again. We got raided once more, and Ana went out to the front lines. She got injured again, but no legs were torn off. Not very thankfully. I get this notification saying, "Ana has had a miscarriage due to injury." Nooooo! ANA! My doctors tend to her, and she gets fully healed :D. A couple of days later (in Rimworld time), she gets pregnant again. WOOOOOH! We get raided again. I cross my fingers she doesn't miscarry again when she fights. Guess what happens? She didn't miscarry? Nope! Your wrong! She miscarried again. Just my luck at rimworld.

Lol! It happens to me all the time. I have alpacas and muffalos, and every time there's a raid, I forget to put them into a safe zone. They always end up beaten up with the correspondent miscarriages.
Tip: If your pets get drunk or use drugs all the time, you need to make a "animal zone" and restrict the area where the stuff is. And you can make kibble in the butcher table for them, so they don't have to step into the freezer, potentially drinking your beer.
I have a zone for pets, a zone for livestock and a safe zone for those who can't fight in the raids. You just have to make it and then in the "animal tab" you can decide wich zone is for every animal.

As for a story, once I had a pawn who had a high ability to tame animals, so I often gave her a pet to bound. This pet always ended killed or eaten, all the time. But it was funny, because it always happened to her pets, and quickly!
Poor gal, she was always sad.

I once had a colony that had around 20 Winter Wolves and one of those wolves, let's just call her "Youko" would always get pregnant. She was basically the Eve of my colony of wolves but sadly, she had dementia and miscarriages were often. If she didn't have a miscarriage so often, I'd wager I would have about 50 winter wolves.

Oh, and she would always get herself injured when going outside her barn. And on one faithful day, she got ripped to shreds by a wandering puma.

The horse for my one legged warrior lost 3/4 of his hooves. He cannot walk, and just sits there out of respect for his combat days as a noble steed.

Update on Ana: She is now the proud mother of Ooga-Booga and Darya (no I did not choose the names.)
