Food Four Way
« on: May 22, 2014, 10:54:00 AM »
I know what you're going to say: "You're bonkers, mate".

Here is the challenge:

- Get a screenshot where you can see 4 different kinds of animals together.
  Say a sheep, a chicken, a cow and a deer.
 
They have to be reasonably near each other. None of "here's the full map, sorted" clevercloggness.
And before you try to squirm out of it, no, humans don't count in this challenge.

I have a good idea on how to go about it. But as usual, my laziness (and fear of failing, ofc) prevents me from attempting it.
The only tricky thing is the deer part, as they cannot be controlled at all. So, there's a certain element of luck too.

Happy shepherding.

Okay, they aren't that close to each other.  But at least it isn't the whole colony in the picture.

Oh, wait!  I have a much better one!

Nice challenge!  I will have to fire up Mornice and see if I can catch a deer in the chicken pen too!  :)

It was the corn she was scattering.  You know how deer love corn.   ;D

Hah! Serves me right!

I was thinking of a much more difficult way to do it.

My original idea was to see the animals outside pastures.

To do that, my convoluted mind was visualizing a simultaneous split of pastures where the path to get to the new pastures (some way away) would force the animals to travel where some deer might be grazing at the time.

But you of course found the obvious solution, instead of the deranged one.
Well done  8)

But your method, @Boris_amj, could have led to the underwater four food way.   ;D
