A rope is a tool used to leash Domestic Animals, such as Horses and Pigs. It is also required to build wells, hitching posts, mine holes and other structures.

How to Acquire

It's crafted with 10 strings using the Rope Walk.

How to Use

Right-click with a rope on a domesticated animal, or a wild animal that has been fed a clover, to leash it. It will then follow you around. You can put the rope in the inventory and the animal will remain leashed; however, dropping the rope will unleash it. Right-click the rope when with a leashed animal on a hitching post, to tie the animal to it.

See Taming for further information.

  • (Requesting information on a domesticated animal, on hostile ground, will leave trespassing scent.)

Game Development

  • Guided Ermine (2022-06-19) >"Added the ability to guide animals. If you have a leashed animal, you can right-click its leash and "Guide" the animal. The animal then walks wherever you click. Other animals your guided animal hits are "Shoo":ed. Cow Bowling intensifies. Pretty sweet. Should, in retrospect, have put this ability on the animal, rather than on the leash. May fix in the future."
  • Goat Sap (2018-03-01) >"A small lasso icon over ropes now indicates that they are presently being used to leash an animal. You may also unleash from ropes by right-clicking the rope. Suggested here, among other places."
