    Pets?

    Brainstorming here but I need the type of bond that will smith and the German shepherd had in I am Legend. Maybe to start you get to pick either a chicken or a rabbit as your first pet, they follow you and maybe give u a buff or hit for very minimal damage. Killing zeds, feeding your pet, and playing with your pet increases its level. At a certain level u can trade it in for either a pig or a stag that gives more of a buff or does a little more damage, next a wolf or a dog, and then next either a dire wolf or a bear.
    A20 Perhaps? All i know is i want some pets!

    You should read the book or better yet, listen to the audiobook for I am Legend.

    I was thinking more of Dogmeat from Fallout 4.

    i made bears tame to players and spawn a few in my compound as pets and protectors. Just disabled break door and break block or they eventually get out.

    I think the bond between pets and players would have to be so strong, that they follow the very path the players take.
    Otherwise they will be walking all over the anti zombie defences like the wild animals try to do.

    I do also wonder how pets will work.

    Take dogs for example, great for early warning. Perhaps a low growl when zombies are near, but barking would surely attract more zombies and would the dog go in for a melee attack? potential like in I Am Legend for the dog to contract the virus.

    Come on. If you treat it as a "pet", you don't trade it with something else.
    You only trade a tool.
    A better mechanism maybe you train it to become better at fighting.

    BTW I think you can have pet in starvation mod already.

    I was thinking it would be cool to have pets too, the other day. Except I thought maybe we could have pet zombies on a chain and can keep them caged as defenses against other zombies.

    Guys, pets don't give the emotional comfort you need in this situation. All we need is a soccer ball named Wilson.

    if horses ever come I'd love to be able to hook 2 horses to a cart or a broken down car and use it as storage xD maybe loud storage but it would help long trips

    I want to put zombie strippers in cages. There will not be any bonding though.

    Wouldn't mind a pet chicken. That would be cool. It could peck the zombie's eyes out as I'm shooting at them
