Hi, i'm new here just got the game a few days ago. and i love the game shame i did not find it earlier.

Anyhow i noticed how early on in the game the animals tend to wander around the map a lot (i play human) and the wolfs get to them eventually.

I would love for a building type (at least some investment) to contain them, and have a max amount in the building not to have them contain 60 cows or anything. Or have a peasant mode that could 'herd' them together for protection.

I think the investment should balance out the potential gain you get from not losing part of your non slaughter livestock like sheep chickens and cows. A small cost to build a pen or sacrifice a peasant would do just that i think and eventually have me worry less about those poor chickuns.

I think there is real value in this. Nothing interferes with castle defense than 20 units of sheep inside your city walls. I am sure that once pathfinding is improved this should not be such an issue, but it would be nice to have a place to keep all your livestock nice and tidy and out of the way. You could easily put a unit cap on how many you could have per pen. They could be tied to the barn as an add-on structure. Or it could be one of the 20 un-used build plots that I have around my city.
