Having just saw the roadmap news including something about a new biome, I hope that we also get new animals that are specially made for certain biomes as well. Some ideas include that the Sahara biome can have the Gazelle, Warthog, and Hyena replace the Deer, Boar, and Wolf respectively. There can also be the Lion being added as well, which can have a 50% chance of replacing the Wolf and Hyena on the Mediterranean and Sahara Biomes respectively. A new herdable animal would also be good as well and perhaps it can be the Goat, which replaces the Sheep on certain Biomes. Overall, new animals would definitely be a good thing because it can add variety to the current selection of animals that there is right now.
Huntables have tons of options that could be added.
Boar probably needs to remain as something that is haram. Warthog, like you said, is a good example.
Herdables are more limited I think since they have to bound after scouts and not look ridiculous. I agree, goats are a good option.
Yes, of course the Boar is going to remain prohibited to the Islamic civilizations. Warthog would also be prohibited to Islamic civilizations as well because the Warthog comes from the same family of species as the Boar as both, the Boar and Warthog are pig-type species.
Well, to be really honest, the sheep already look ridiculous when following the scout. I mean that in a cute/ good way. But ya I can’t imagine how they would do it with say, a cow! Maybe make cows an extra special food source, like maybe faster gather rate and more meat, but keep them slow, and you have to activate a command on your scout or select them with your scout, to make them follow the scout, then the scout herds them back in their walking pace. So the cows will then have to start together as deer do.
This basically then takes a scout out of play for a while, should you choose to herd cows back to base, for the food bonus income rate. Or you can just go build a gathering building near them I guess. But I kind of like the idea of having to decide between scouting or bonus food income.
Hey there. So anyways, if the Elephant was to be added as a huntable animal, perhaps the Islamic civilizations would be prohibited from getting food from it because the Elephant, like the Pig, is haram (forbidden) in Islam. I’m pretty sure Hindu civilizations would also be prohibited from gathering meat from the Elephant.
Yeah or like Turkeys like AoE2 has would look really dumb.
Well they already added cows, they’re just unique to Malians (for now at least) and they are just moved on their own and cannot follow a scout or speed up.
Yes, you’re right. I almost forgot about that! Since cows are a unique resource for them, it should stay that way I suppose.
It might not stay that way because the cows are likely to become a common herdable animal in the future considering that cows have been domesticated all over the world.
Lions, Tigers as predators etcs
Just add some animals from AoE3
