Animal Worker v2.1


Hire a Ranch Hand to feed, water and bed your animals for a small daily fee.

Daily at 7am the worker will:

- Fill the water trough, straw bedding and clean your animals. (configurable in XML)

- Feed all your animals based on number of animals. (configurable in XML)

- Charge a daily fee of 5% + base cost (in XML) + number of animals

New in Version 2.1

 - Set worker to active by default and added 2 more settings to clean the pens and how to fill troughs.

 - Settings file is in your modSettings folder (modsSettings/animalWorker/animalWorker.xml)

 - Fixed expenses, now listed under Animal Upkeep, also configurable.

 - Now uses all feed types. Serial consumers (cows/pigs) get rations based on consumption.

 - For less feed set fillToCapacity to false, they will only get daily rations per animal; enough for 6 days. Set to true to fill the troughs.

New in Version 2.0

- Feeds all animals one type of food based on 6 days of consumption per animal per weight. (Doesn't completely fill the trough)

- New settings XML file in modsettings folder to configure animal worker is active, base price per animal (to feed) and fee.

- Costs are added daily at exactly 7 am and printed out in the dev console, along with number of animals fed.

- Multilingual description

- Multiplayer compatible
