Muffalo Ranch
« on: October 26, 2013, 11:45:41 PM »

using colonist to surround the Muffulo and heard into an enclosed area. they need to be fed and are not immune to becoming psyco. would be a massive burden on early game food supplies, but can be killed for food and you need at least 1 male and 1 female, and you can breed and make more! or maybe a more humane existence and make Muffulo ride able for a way to haul more supplies faster?

would work the same as a growing area, and must be placed on grass (would take up a lot of space)

This is a great idea and I really want to do it.

Step 1 is stockpiles so you can store carcasses and meat properly.

Step 2 is cooking so you can cook raw foods.

Step 3 is hunting so you can send guys to kill muffalo.

Step 4 is ranching so you can build fenced areas an assign colonists to gather muffalo into them.

Step 5 gain their trust and live among them.

Step 6 rally your Muffalo brothers against the humans.

But what do we do with Muffalo skins?

Squirrel meat? Squirrel skins?

clothing is an option, but it might be too Dwarf Fortress-y.

Squirrel hunting for food! I know its not exactly going to be the optimal way to play but that kind of detail adds so much to a game.

Perhaps 'stuffed animals' for a kill trophy room or  as a statue to grant some +happiness?

Maybe they could be part of the 'fear' concept, placed out to make raiders slightly more wary of attacking.

I really like the idea that 'crazy bob' is running around using a squirrel for a hat.

Muffulo hides could be used for decoration like a rug, blankets for comfort, or incorporated into armor crafting -- rather than straight up use as clothing. I don't really care what my colonists wear unless its something interesting like a ridiculous hat or sweet looking cape.

It seems like the existence of muffs alone begs them to be domesticated, so yes please!

Possibly Muffalo milk/meat has a positive effect on the colonists, but they have to be supplied with food and are targets for raiders?
