My current character is staying at a campgrounds with a fellow survivor. There’s two Beagles nearby. I’ve managed to tame one of them and put them in my RV but the thing is, now I can’t haul or craft without getting the popup every 10 seconds “From the northeast you hear YAP!” and it continously pops up making it so it’s super frustrating to craft or do any action,
I don’t want to have to kill the dog so is it possible to craft a muzzle or something? Thanks for any help or info!
No muzzles, no. Not a bad idea for an addition though.
If you’re trying to craft or sleep at your base and the sound notifications bother you, you could use earplugs.
If you’re concerned it will attract enemies when you go looting or exploring, don’t bring the dog without armor.
As a general rule, they don’t survive long. They still kinda don’t even with armor. Also, get dog whistle, and you can tell them to go passive so they don’t run into a mob. Unless you want a little meatshield, I guess.
Indeed, I would also encourage asking for this as a feature request. It’s perfectly reasonable, and the fact that tame dogs keep barking (presumably constantly) seems like something they’d want to address anyway.
I kind of wish the dog barking was a feature in and of itself, actually. Like a different kind of alarm, where you could train and station dogs at the front of your compound, so they’d start barking when something bad got close and it’d alert the player if they were otherwise indisposed.
What we need is the ability to flag various snippets (the things an monster says) to be used only when the monster meets certain conditions. For example, when the monster can smell or see an enemy, in this case. Or when the monster takes damage (Yelp!), or is heavily wounded (whine)
Is there an animal carrier recipe? Some wires, maybe a little plastic, and a modest fabrication skill should also solve this barking problem. They seem rarer than they should be, seeing as though a good chunk of households have animals and probably a cage or something smaller stashed in a closet.
