Default The case of the missing sheep...

Hey TOGers! I was curious if on the FTB server it is common for critters to despawn? I had two sheep all penned up and they were there for days and then suddenly one day (about 2 days ago) they vanished. Is this common? The strange thing is that there was another sheep slightly outside of the structure I'm building that was stuck on a wall and he was still there.

There aren't a lot of livestock where I am (fairly close to the spawn point), so getting sheep is rather time consuming. If they are going to despawn then I probably won't bother with livestock farming...

I have no idea why they might disappear...how where they contained?

It used to be that they could sometimes clip into a wall and suffocate, but I though that was fixed.

Califray has recently introduced me to the safari net, which allows you to pick up and move mobs (possibly only non-hostile; I haven't tried hostiles yet). He gave me one, and I can use it to help you bring in more sheep and cows. The other way to deal with this is to use mystcraft portals and lead the sheep through.

In the Vanilla 1.6 release there was a bug fix for animals housed with fence. It's possible this bug still exists in the version of FTP we use.

On serenity I use to have that issue all the time with my animals and blocks. We never ended up finding a cause for it.

Thanks folks. I still don't know what the problem is, but have decided that it is just too crowded where I started building (all the underground is mined out). I plan on moving my base to an area out by Brew (started building a platform in the pretty autumn forest). The plus side is there are also more animals out there, so hopefully if they do despawn again I can easily get more.
