Animal spawn rate and distance

Recommended Posts

I'm assuming that deer, chickens, bears, etc, only spawn into existence when a player is X distance away.  Is that true? (alpha 17.4). 

 

I've got a few of those kill X animal quests, and I've been flying around in a gyro for a long time, and have seen nothing.   Do I need to stay in an certain area for X minutes or seconds before animals spawn?  Is flying over an area too fast for animals to spawn?

I have seen them from the air. If you go in a new chunk, you'll often spawn new animals. They usually take 14 in-game days before respawning if I remember correctly.

Yep. You're right. We've changed our respawndelay so many times, I forgot what it was originally set at. We have the Wasteland set at "0". Endless streams of zombies. We have friendly animals set at "1" in most biomes when we have over 4 players.
