Hi all,

Iv been searching the web on why my sheep won't eat grass?  I have tried the following:
- breed tons of sheep
- keep them in very small areas.
- keep them in very large areas.
- move them to a new location.
- feed, feed, feed them hay.
- separated some sheep into small communities

It seems the only way I can get wool is to breed them and shear the wool off the new stock.  As it is, I have tons and tons of sheep with no wool.  Its ridiculous.

Oh, and yelling "eat grass ya stupid *****" doesn't help either.   <_<

Any help would be fantastic!

Cheers.

This isn't released in the full version of the game yet, only the test releases.

Are you using the correct version (current pre-release and not official release)?
Using the right kind of grass as well?

Thought about maybe giving them more time while staying close enough so their chunk won't get unloaded?

Which kind of grass? Do you just have dirt blocks with grass grown on top, or are you using tall grass? I think tall grass is what is required

They eat both kinds of grass, if there is tall grass on the block they stand on they eat that, and if there are no tall grass then they eat the grass from the dirtblock. He probably just doesn't have the snapshot downloaded

Just feed them food. Take care of them until they birth offspring. And as their offsprings eyes first open --first glimmer of light and life flooding through their innocent eyes-- and their parents are lovingly coddling them, slaughter its parents. cut them down piece by piece in front of their newly born as it sits in the corner watching in utter horror. Laugh maniacally over its parents slowly despawning corpses. Point your sword at the little one, as if to utter the promise "you are next". you may even punch the little one once or twice if you wish, harmful but not fatal. Then open the gate, leave, and wait for it to mature, all the while it thinks about its fate, confined, unable to retreat from its prison of masochistic slaughter and wretched torment. :lol:


Or just wait until the new client comes out and they regenerate wool.

LOL, thanks for the replies.  

The grass is green with the odd tall grass here and there.  I did move a bunch to various area's but no go.  They don't like grass.  Maybe steak?   :rolleyes:

My version is 1.0.0 from the main site.

I have seen someone make small pens with 2 adults in each.  Feed them hay, they make a baby, baby grows, you shear its wool, kill baby = repeat.  Have like 5 pens.  But I couldn't be stuffed doing that.

As a vegetarian I understand your parallel ;)

And where did you find this thing that told you that sheep eat grass in 1.0?

They won't eat grass in 1.0.0. You have to use the 1.1.0 Prerelease 2.

I totally did not change my avatar just to stop Waddlesail from eating me. Nothing to see here.

There are so many patch updates I didnt bother read them all. Figured wool regen was part of the game as iv seen youtube flics with it.  Plus Im a returning player after about a year.  Iv found so many bugs I wasn't sure if wool regen is suppose to work or not.

Man, im going on a sheep killing spree...  :blink:

Here we go... 1.1.0 - Re-added sheep eating grass.
Found on wiki.  Sigh, now I find something.
