Where'd everybody go?
« on: September 13, 2011, 09:16:45 am »

Starting up adventure mode, just to feel like playing a souped-up version of Sandbox Ragnarok, when I notice this -

There's next to no wildlife. Where'd they go? Or is Adventure mode meant to be this sparse?

I honestly don't know.  Are you really in the wilderness, or still in a village?

Moved pretty far from the village, actually. Do I have to baleet my map and start off with 'high savagery/high beasts'?. I did run into a lamprey while going in the flow of a river. NOMNOMNOM.

History? I set it to 1050 and ended it on 1400.

This has never happened to me ( I usually end world gen at around year 10 ) but it might just be that all the animals became extinct.  I'm really not the best source of information, I'm sure somebody has the correct answer.  If you want giant lions and leopards, along with other stuff, end world gen very early.  That is, if all you want to fight are animals.

Tried a 6 year world gen with high savagery and everything. Jumped into a river (this is where all that remains hangs out) and ran into a sea lamprey.

So far, 3 kills. The forests just seem empty, though.

...This is ridiculous.  I'm guessing you have bogeymen right?  Did you do advanced world generation, or just the normal one?  Also, how big is your world? 

I'm sorry if I haven't been at all helpful.

Bogeymen? Yeah, happened to me once. I went down after cutting a few open. :P
They're hard to hit, I tell ya.

Normal world generation, that's what I did.

And hey, it's cool - its like detective work or something.

Have you tried getting quests? If there's no-one at the target sites (try a few), there's something wrong.

This is relatively normal as far as I know. Not all regions will actually spawn wildlife, but others will have wildlife literally everywhere. Have you actually visited many different biomes/regions?

Well, I did notice enemies in the river. A biome is a distinct change of climate/area, right? Example; Forest to desert.
