I appreciate and applaud your efforts toward alleviating bank clutter caused by animals you would want to keep for breeding purposes by adding the animal barn. However, I believe the number of storage spaces should be raised.

I feel there should be enough spaces to accommodate one male and one female of each strain of every animal plus one space for a Shiny breed of each animal. For example:

- 1x white ram, 1x white ewe
- 1x black ram, 1x black ewe
- 1x sprinsheared ram, 1x springsheared ewe
- 1x summerdown ram, 1x summerdown ewe
- 1x fallfaced ram, 1x fallfaced ewe
- 1x winterwold ram, 1x winterwold ewe
- 1x male *or* female golden sheep

That way, you can keep a set breeding pair of each animal type/strain for use as the vendors' requirements change, and only need to keep animals you want to sell in the bank.

I understand what your saying, but the update had nothing to do with qol for breeding pairs, it was simply a bankspace overflow for people keeping pof animals to sell.

I totally support your idea & think the space they provided was absolutely minimal, but I think they have thought this through & decided this is the limit.

When I heard about the upcoming POF update, I was anxious to see what the barn was going to look like. Turns out we did not get a barn. We got a root cellar underneath the farm house. Thatís not a barn! Who stores livestock in their basement? That would stink up the entire house. Yuck.

I know. And when that content was released I thought that was just as weird as I do now.

There is literally no reason to hoard shiny animals (since they can't breed into more shiny animals), there is literally no reason to hoard more sheep than just a pair of any (since what they breed solely depends on the season and the time of the day, but fully ignores what their parents are) - almost the same thing for spiders (araxytes breed into araxytes, the rest solely depends on season and daytime).

I mean - sure players love to hoard stuff: But why don't increase the barn space so much that we can store our max integer amount of rabbits in there?

The example you gave with the sheep is just silly. You only need 1 breeding pair, and you can obtain all the other sheep depending on the season in the farm. It's also counterproductive to try and match the preferred breed and trait of animal, asked by the buyer.

It's like +10% beans when matching the preferred breed, and +25% beans for both preferred breed and trait... but you'll likely spend more beans in re-rolls (300) getting the preferred trait.
