    Non-Hostile mobs such as sheep, pigs, cows etc. are a big goal for almost everyone who plays skyblock, and yet no one actually has any idea how to get them. i am asked so frequently how i got my animals and, after a few days of waiting, we got our first 2 sheep :D we also got pigs, but the fatties despawned D,=

    1. LOTS OF GRASS!!!

    Despite the common theory that you need 25x25 of pure grass, i have found that they don't tend to spawn at this size, unless you are able to wait 20 years for a single animal.
    Because of the tedious spawn rates, you should build at least 30x30 and maybe bigger. (i think ours is 30x40)
    And yes, you can put torches down :) In addition to this, use bonemeal to make grass and flowers appear (some guy told me this makes spawn rate better)

    2. Patience

    It took me about 4 days or so for our sheep and ugly pigs to spawn. eww, patience >.< just forget the fact that you have spent all your points on grass and do something else, whilst you wait for something to spawn. don't just sit in the middle of your field waiting for a cow to miraculously appear and shout "MOOOOOOOO!!!"

    3. how am i supposed to get that grass? seriously wtf?

    sigh.. grass is 50 points per 5 grass. This means that you are paying 10 points per grass which is a LOT of points just for some stupid cows. Here is the best way to get grass cheap, efficiently and very fast, without paying a single point for any of it:
    requirements:
    1 willing friend (can't be host of world)
    2 A little patience

    Player 1: (you) Player 2: (willing friend)

    Here's what you do: have your friend (player 2) store all his items and leave the world. Then, make a new world and take all the dirt. Both players then go to spawn and player 2 trades all his valuable dirt to player 1. then player 1 invites and kicks player 2 ( to reset timer for making a new world). Then all you gotta do is make another world and repeat. It is so fast and useful! it takes about 5 minutes per stack and a half and actually feels like you are cheating! XD

    FAQ: (PLEASE DON'T ASK THESE IN A REPLY)

    1.My animals will not spawn?
    This could be due to your biome being in "ocean biome". Press F3 in-game and it will show your biome.

    2. My biome is ocean, how can i get animals?
    Perhaps if you were to build the 25x25 field, an admin could give you spawn eggs for the animals that you want. (Ask before you waste all your grass on an almost useless field).

    3. My biome isn't ocean, my field is 25x25 and it's well lit. Nothing is spawning?
    If all the above requirements are met, you have done it right. Now it's all down to luck and patience. Perhaps expand a little more, otherwise just do something else whilst you wait for your animals.

    4. I have a field of dirt but not grass. can they still spawn?

    No. However, if you buy 5 grass from the in-game shop, you can plant them in random places within your field and the grass will spread over the dirt.

    Hope i helped. PLEASE LIKE AS THIS TOOK A LONG TIME OT MAKE <3

    ^.^ I see people buying stacks of dirt for up to 10 diamonds per stack! It is ridiculous because what people don't know is that dirt is actually so easy to get!

    your friend is the owner? Who might that be then? It sounds as though you don't even know the owners, seeing as you don't even know their forum and IGN's. And are you telling me that /is isn't a command? --__-- that is like saying that /f isn't a command for factions, or that saying /p isn't a command for creative...

    This is kinda abusing the system... There's no rule against it, but there ought to be.

    I Agree to this. I'm surprised no moderator or admin has banned this. It abuses the system making grass almost useless (I get my dirt by saving up and then purchasing a ton of grass blocks)
