|A dryosaurus playing with a tethered log.|
Tethered logs are crafted using 2 string and 1 block of wood arranged as in the crafting recipe shown above. The wood may be of any type, including palaeoraphe logs, but the item will always appear to be made of oak.
A prehistoric creature's happiness influences its behavior in several ways. Low happiness can lead to hostility or lack of reproduction. The tethered log's main use is to improve the happiness of these creatures. In order to use a tethered log, right click on the underside of a block (note: it is more than one block tall). This will hang the tethered log. If an unhappy mob encounters the tethered log, it will display its attack animation towards it, "playing" with it. The log will swing as it is hit. To take down the tethered log, punch it and it will return to your inventory.
