I was playing stendhal for some hours now and I realized
it takes very long to make *any* progress. I don't know
how to solve this issue.. but perhaps you could
implement a function that a user can tell its sheep to
stay at some place, so the user can walk around and do
other things... ;)
The bad thing about this could be that the sheep is helpless
without the player. If an animal attacks the sheep it will call
for its owner. The owner will be noticed about the sheep
beeing attacked and could go to where he left it...
(perhaps a ballon with the text "Help!" could appear from
the direction where you left your sheep.. and in dungeons
you would not be noticed, because you're too far away)
The other thing is that we really need a shepherd dog.
I also talked to miguel about this some minutes ago ;-)
(the graphics is already there.. the old "wolf", you know)
He told me that in release 0.30 the wolf (and such) will
attack my sheep. So a shepherd dog could take care of
my sheep. In fact the dog would make the monsters not
attack the sheep, but instead they would rather attack
the dog or the player...
The dog would also help to implement a "stay here" command
for the sheep, because this way you could tell the
dog to watch for the sheep (so it would not and could not run away).
Well, one final fact: a shepherd dog would not be for
free.. we should have to buy it.. and it shouldn't be too
cheap, so that not every lvl0 player could afford it...
That's just the idea I had while playing the first hours of
stendhal (and getting a lvl3 character).
btw. I noticed a tiny bug.. when you leave a zone (?) to the right
you will notice that your sheep is in front of you and you
can't walk (to the right). This is annoying, perhaps you could
fix this... your sheep should always be behind the player ;)
Thanks for reading (and discussing ;-))
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
Well, it's all about sheep.. and when we talk about sheep
we must at least mention a shepherd dog ;-)
I like talking about the sheep :-D
It would be cool if you could have more than one sheep.
you can put more than one sheep in area with "leave sheep" and sort of herd them by alternating "own" and "leave". A crook that would let you move unowned sheeps away from you would facilitate in herding.

I am thinking about limiting this feature as it has been abused... money... money... money will limit it! :)
I want a sheep monitor so I can see what my sheep is doing when I can't see it on map
no nevermind, I think its just running around thinking about hamburgers
