I love this game so much, it's amazing. However, I think it would be awesome to see animals. It would be so cool to be able to own horses, making stables a facility, as well as having the companionship of a dog. Being able to upgrade your horses saddle (that you have to find) so it can carry more weight and finding armor to protect your horse as well. The dogs could learn skills, such as tearing zombies throats out and ripping off their limbs. The horses could learn skills, like our survivors, learning to be quieter, gaining more health and moving faster.
With the horses there could be a button to make them rear or buck, knocking zombies back or even landing a lucky shot, killing them. Our survivor riding the horse could even swing their melee weapon to kill zombies that get to close. The horses could be found in the barns, that are frequently shown around the maps, or even just grazing in a nice patch of land. Some horses might have their gear already on them, or at least a bridle and the horses might already be already tamed, however if you see one farther away from a town, with no gear, they may have gone back to their wild ways, in which case you need rope to capture them. Horses could also be bought and/or sold from other Enclaves, as well as their gear.
The horses would of course have their genders, and could be bred, another facility for them could be a vet, like the infirmary, to heal them as well. Selecting your best horses to breed at the stables, to be able to have an amazing horse of the apocalypse. The dogs in the game would serve as a buddy to take with you on your travels but once it sees a zombie, that isn't a dog you would want to cuddle with at night. The dogs facility would of course be a kennel to keep them in. You would be able to find dogs running around, or even puppies in boxes left outside or left in the rooms of houses.
That was a lot to say but I think having animals would greatly improve the game, I have seen many people debating weather or not animals would be a good thing but I think I thought everything out. Thanks to everyone that read this, I hope this idea gets approved and will be updated into the game. XOXO-Morgan
P.S In a real apocalypse,if everyone were using cars, wouldn't make since if the gas ran out and we had to find other means of transportation. It would add to the drama of being in an apocalypse, along with the zombies roaming around that is. (Not saying to get rid of gas, many people might prefer cars still)
