    The mobs should be very quick to run away if they hear noise. Aswell as have critical points on their bodies so you would have to make a head shot or theyll be able to run. Double food and Leather would be good with huntable mobs aswell. Normal minecraft wild life is too easy to kill. I want the game to feel survival when i play survival

    Animals do respawn, though I do see your point on hunting being kind of weird in Minecraft.

    I think this is a great idea! love everything you added! I think maybe these mobs could be more common than farm animals, as farming animals is OP and hunting could be more fun

    Sorry to necro, but I've wanted to post this for ages and finally got around. I see you already have.

    In addition to your points, it would allow wild-spaces to feel more alive, even after you've already captured the existing farm animals. (To this end, perhaps the spawning conditions should be slightly more complicated than just sky-lit grass?)

    I agree with deer specifically, partly because:

    • the same model could be used in basically every biome, with only texture and size variation, because there is some deer-like ungulate in basically every habitat on earth
    • they are relatable to a global audience (see above)
    • deer are the animal best associated with hunting (at least in NA)

    Biome Suggestions:

    • Caribou &/or Moose in Tundras, Taigas and Wooded Mountains
    • White-Tail in Plains & Forests
    • Gazelle in Deserts
    • Antelope in Savannahs
    • Pronghorn in Badlands
    • Marsh Deer in Swamps
    • Brocket or Muntjac in Jungles

    hear is my idea for deer,

    white tale deer: forest/plains, with a high amount of spawning in birch forest.

    antelope: savanna

    reindeer: taiga/mountains

    swamp deer: ...swamps

    Pudu: jungle (i think these look funny so i'm adding them to my list)

     

    and we have hoglins which are kinda boars?
