Pigs are a domesticated animal, obtainable from both land and space traders. Pigs are omnivorous, making them easy to feed. They will eat live plants and so should be kept away from the growing zones.


Comparison with the wild boar

A cousin of the wild boar, the pig is a more controllable and higher-yield version of its wild relative. Pigs can be butchered for more meat, produce more leather, and carry a higher market value. Wild boars have a considerably higher wildness rating and require more handling labor. Unlike wild boars, pigs tameness never decays. Pigs can be trained and handled by anyone and can be taught how to rescue and haul; wild boars require skill 3 handlers and can only be trained up to release.

However, pigs have a slightly higher hunger rate than the wild boar, making them require slightly more food. Pigs and wild boars take the same amount of time to reach adulthood. The biggest advantage the boar holds is that it can be found naturally on most biomes, while pigs must be acquired through trading or an animals wander in event.

Pigs are also not as strong at attacking as wild boars.
