Hello fellow Minecrafters. The map I randomly generated turned out to be an island biome. While it is great, and I love the map, no animals spawn. I have tried setting up fields with torches all around but I can't figure out any way to spawn animals. I have degraded myself down to using INVedit to give myself the materials needed (feathers, leather, FOOD etc.) but, I want to have the "real" feel of the game. Anyone know how to get animals to spawn?
I solved this problem by travelling to a continent, finding some animals, and pushing them all the way across the ocean to my little island. No joke. It was quite fun, too!
(Yes, I know it would've been easier just setting up a farm on the mainland, but I like the idea of having my own little island rich with all the resources I'd ever need. I'm now just waiting for 1.9 to roll around with animal breeding so I can set up a proper farm - I've already got the wheat and melons growing).
