Landscape Tools - 6th Icon - Animals

The Stronghold 2 map editor offers more animals than the previous game editors. Additional animals include herons, pheasants, dolphins and whales.


The animals will appear in the editor in grid form, and begin to move only when in the game.

The brush size determines how many animals will be placed upon the map. The screenshot below shows the difference between placing bears with the smallest brush (the single bear) and the largest brush (the army of bears!).

Special Notes about Animals

Whales

The whales will show up as the map is played, but can't be seen in the editor.

Foxes

The foxes hang around the granary, stealing chickens.

Wolves

Wolves have a very fast spawn rate, so be sure not to place too many. In the course of one game year, one wolf will spawn into seven. This table below shows the number of wolves on a map over the course of the year. In June, September and December a new wolf appeared midway through the month. In July and October, one of the wolves died.
