|0009567||Dwarf Fortress||Creatures||public||2016-02-16 08:17||2018-02-06 17:15|
|Assigned To||Toady One|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||0.44.06|
|Summary||0009567: Animals get distracted over time for no apparent reason|
|Description||After playing a fortress roughly two dwarven years some of tame animals started flashing yellow downward arrow and showed yellow "Distracted" at the wound screen. This also happens to wild animals and forgotten beasts if they spend enough time on the map, but they don't flash yellow downward arrow.|
|Steps To Reproduce||1. Play fortress mode enough long, having many animals.|
2. Notice that some of them get distracted and flash yellow downward arrow.
|Additional Information||I've played four fortresses in 0.42.04 and this happened in all of them. It's inevitable.|
|Tags||distracted, Save Included|

Can be seen in some of the giant mountain goats in http://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=11767 [^]
Btw, I've never seen this happen with imported animals or animals born in the fortress - only with wild-caught animals.
|I've seen it frequently on wild-caught animals and ocasionally on war/hunting animals, pets, wild animals and normal animals such as a stray pig. A forgotten beast stuck in a cavern was so badly distracted that it showed red "Distracted!" instead of yellow.|
Goat (id=9743) in the save seems to be distracted at being unable to pray anriz(historical figure id=455).
Goat (id=9962) - same reason, but deity is ral(id=452).
Both goats are historical figures and have deity histfig link(in the vector that also contain father and mother hf links).
|I've noticed that some egg-layers claim a nestbox but refuse to lay - pathing to the nest box and then pathing away before laying. I think it's related. Will upload a save as soon as I get another one of these (I butchered all of mine, oops)|

I've seen something similar in 43.03. However, in my case my tame/domesticated animals are distracted. Save available here: http://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=12115 [^]
To find the distracted animals do the following:
1) Hotkey "F1"
2) They should be towards the lower left of center (in a pasture).
|The animals having deity relations that sv-esk noted, I've moved to 0010350 in in case the distractions have other underlying issues, at least the animal/deity relations can be marked off.|

As Button has pointed in 0010350:0037034, though, that 0010350 is a duplicate of much older 0005799, so issue of "Notable animals worship gods" goes there instead.

Can confirm this still happening in 0.44.04, every animal is distracted.
I've added another save (modded but even unmodded animals are distracted) here for confirmation - still present as of 44.05.
As with other posters, it appears to be related to them still having needs but being unable to fulfill them, in particular the "pray" need - they cluster around the temple and are there almost always, whereas my citizens only go there occasionally.
|In addition to the assignment of deities to histfig animals (inherited by their offspring), animals can also crave alcohol and be distracted because of that. My confirmed instance was a pet cat who also was distracted because of a lack of praying.|
