We have a problem! When we update to 1.6, we can't get Horses! I looked around and it says they only spawn in newly generated chunks. If you have any suggestions, post here!

Is it possible to shove them through the OR portal and lead them home on an airship or walk them home? And I now realize that you can just ride them. But, I know that cats and dogs can't go to different worlds. But maybe with you on the horse it would work?

I think two spawn eggs would be better, since it would allow players to breed their own horses.

I understand the spawn egg thing, but what if nobody gets any donkeys, or there are a few but they are all insanely far away from each other. Then mules and stuff would be nearly impossible to breed and have. Idk what the probability and all is for a donkey, but I would think it would be a little more rare. If they even spawn from the same type of egg. And maybe the spawn eggs could be placed in dungeons in the OR that way it was at least a challenge? Well, I don't know just some thoughts.

I think a better system would be to give me all the eggs, and have me dole them out at my own whim. You know, to keep everyone else in line.

 

MWUHAHAHAHAHA!

Distributing spawn eggs wouldn't make practical sense. Do they despawn? If not, we could have a government species recovery plan where we manually use eggs to create herds in the wild. People can capture them and breed at their leisure.

If not, we could consider replacing Outer Reaches.

On the minecraft wiki page it says nothing about spawn egg animals de spawning, but I do like the idea of a government species rehabilitation project. Also, how will we get the new dungeon items like nametags if we do not re introduce the OR?

Horses, natural and egg-spawned, do not despawn. Same as cows, sheep, villagers, etc.

On the minecraft wiki it said horses can despawn if players are far enough away though in my single player game I have not seen any of the ones I discovered despawn.  My suggestion would be for Meat or Frell to create herds in random spots on the VC map like the villager villages that were put in after that patch.  Then it is kind of a easter egg type hunt to find animals.  Otherwise your option would be perhaps for a limited time allowing people to buy horse and donkey spawn eggs, maybe for 15k each to get a population started on the server, other players could then trade for live horses and donkeys.  I don't know that people could get them from a new OR to the main world.  The plus side of a new OR would be finding chests inside the abandoned mines, dungeons and strongholds that have the various horse armor you cannot create.  Otherwise the only horse armor on the server will be if people happen to find some new strongholds in the small sections of the nether map that is not yet filled in.

Im not sure if your idea is a good idea, WallyBean.
People who are on holiday, or unablr to log in for a time do nit have the same chances to get horses, also many players wont be able to buy horses-> the rich people are able which means the rich keep rich, and the poor keep poor. I dont think thats fair to all players, thats why i think every player should get one single spawn egg.

personaly i agree with wally. everyone has the same chance  of finding a herd made by meat or frell, therefor it is perfectly fair. i also feel that this will keep the legit nature of VC. if we just give everyone spawn eggs, then are we realy legit? plus everyone on VC is nice enough to sell horses that they find for a reasonable price.

Give Pherian the eggs. He'll create the herds. MASSIVE HERDS of killer horses, raised in a gladiatorial style, where only fittest survive!

That being said, I'm in agreement as long as I can find one horse to call Popper and have roam my town.

Thats fair Dan I am sure the people who bought spawn eggs would not breed their horses and then trade them to other players for a much cheaper price, they would just horde them like the rich meanie heads they are.  Also we should probably make sure no players are on vacation when the herds are spawned so they don't miss out, wouldn't want anyone thats been gone for a few days to miss out, so we just wait til every player that MIGHT log on in the next 6 months logs on before doing that, that sounds pretty solid, should get a crack at horses in early 2014.  I bow to your superior logic sir.

No need to be snarky.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Everyone just wants to make sure that horses are distributed fairly (IE: given to me) and there doesn't become some sort of horse-controlling syndicate (me) overly inflating the prices of the majestic beasts (murderous fiends).

I'm sure meat and frell will come up with something that is fair to everyone and makes people happy (obviously giving everything to me).

What about a balanced introduction of horses using several of the ideas posted above? Herds could be "seeded" in the wild by Meat and Frell, there could be a [or multiple] lotteries/raffles to distribute spawn eggs (or live animals), and the borders of the map could be expanded so that new chunks can be generated with horses (any maybe a jungle or snow biome or two?...).

Another idea involves creating a government stock yard in Vetropolis with 2 of each type of horse on display where players could pay a modest stud fee (i.e. 100 shillings) to breed the two horses they want a foal from and then take the baby home with them (assuming horses can tp or be placed in minecarts for long journeys). This could also be part of a multi-pronged approach. A slight tweak on that idea involves players putting their horses on display (instead of the government) after they've been introduced in the wild using a setup similar to the shops in Merchant Hall where players are paying other players for the horse they want.
