|0001677||Dwarf Fortress||Dwarf Mode -- Pets||public||2010-05-01 11:58||2014-07-29 15:29|
|Assigned To||Toady One|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||0.34.06|
|Summary||0001677: Exotic pets do not breed|
I bought a pair of tame warthogs from elves, male and female. They have been roaming free in the fort for years and there hasn't been a single piglet.
Likewise in an earlier fort (in .01) I bought giant leopards and tigers and such, and they did not reproduce either.
|Steps To Reproduce|
1. Start a fort.
2. Wait for elves to show up.
3. Buy a bunch of animals that are [PET_EXOTIC]. Check to make sure you get both sexes.
4. Keep playing.
5. Observe absence of offspring.
This may be partially caused by the nobility bug leading into absence (and permanent un-appointability) of dungeon masters.
No dungeon master -> exotic pets do not exist in z-animals -> stuff happens (or in this case, doesn't)
I don't know if anyone has managed to mod themselves a dungeon master, but it would be interesting to see if that changes anything.

|Same here (with alligators, leopards and tigers no less) though I'm wondering if the lack of offspring is because my captured elephants+dogs+cats breeding like rabbits have filled up some animal limit (I know there's a limit per species, not aware of a general one). I'm at 280 animals atm.|

I guess this has something to do with not having the animals in the Z menu. My black bears didn't breed until I trained them for war. Then they appeared in the Z menu and started breeding.
Give the [TRAINABLE] tag to any animal that "doesn't work" now. Train it. It should appear in the Z menu and start breeding.
|The giant leopards were trained for war but did not breed anyway. I don't remember if they appeared in the Z menu, however.|
Jiri Petru (reporter)
|Oh, right... the black bears are [PET]s, not [PET_EXOTIC]s. Nevermind then.|
|Indeed. I modded warthogs to be [PET] in the savegame raws and now they started popping piglets like little piglet cannons. Bought a bunch more from an elf mercahavalance.|

You need a dungeon master for critters with the exotic tag to be able to breed. It's always been like that, was quite fun in previous versions when the DM would arrive and every cave croc in the underground river would spontaneously give birth.
The problem with this version is, the DM never, ever arrives.
|Can confirm this bug with .12 I'm off to find the workaround (changing pet_exotic to pet, right?)|

Confirmed that pets still don't breed in 0.31.16
|Confirmed that EXOTIC pets still don't breed in 0.31.18|
|Still present in 0.31.25. Adding "[APPOINTED_BY:MAYOR]" to the Dungeon Master raws allows you to get one but it has no effect of this bug or on 0002036: Dungeon Master doesn't allow taming/training of exotic pets/mounts.|

|One easy workaround for this is to mod the raws in your savegame and simply change the [PET_EXOTIC] animal to a simple [PET]. They'll both become tameable and start breeding.|
|Exotic pets still don't breed in 0.34.07 - and after I went to all the trouble of setting up a multi-z-level underground pasture for my giant flying squirrels.|
|I've seen this too - my Giant Coyotes haven't been producing anything.|
|Counterexample: In a 34.07 fortress, I have successfully bred giraffes, Grey Langurs, Giant Grey Langurs, Giant Sparrows, Warthogs, Wild Boars, and have a Giant Wren sitting on eggs I expect to hatch. All of these were wild-caught and trained, not caught from the elves. The raws I am using are heavily modded, but all these creatures are still [PET_EXOTIC].|
|caught wild and tamed is different... maybe its intentional that elves neuter their pets to ensure you buy more from them? :x|
|my elf-bought orangutans bred nicely, so I don't think PET_EXOTIC (they are) or "bought from elves" causes infertility.|
|This seems to be indeed gone with the animal training rewrite.|
|Please PM me on the forums if this problem is still present.|
