    Hello everyone :D

    I made this thread because it has been a few days but passive animals such as cows, pigs, sheeps etc etc haven't spawned yet.

    At the moment the size of the spawning area I own (all with grass) by 25x25 sized , fenced with jungle fences, light level minimum 9-10 or even more (maybe it is 11+ didn't take time to control all of it :P) .
    Even will all of these things they still haven't spawned.
    Google and youtube also says that you the spawn point should be at least 24 blocks away from the layers spawn point. Players inside the game say this doesn't matter and I have to wait days before a passive mob can spawn.

    So the biggest question is this:
    - How many days should I wait on average with all the characteristics I specified above ?

    Thank you in advance and have fun !

    As far as I know, this should be pretty fast.
    At least, not as long as you've been waiting for...

    (But I'm a minecraft gameplay noob)

    They game does first check how close other animals are, like if there are 2 cows really close, the chance of spawning an new animal drops down. What I suggest is move all the animals you have far from it. It should take around 2/10 ingame days to spawn something. The more players online at that moment, will lower the chance it spawns with you.

    Also, I just double checked. The default spawn rate for an animal to spawn is every 400th tick and DRC has this setting as well.
    So the problem is on your side :)
