The current message about animal attacks being less likely to happen with more farm buildings is correct.

However I think we do need some clarification about the Coop/Barn doors. There's a weird interaction where if you're on the farm (Maybe even while you're outside the farm?), where animals will be able to phase through the doors if it's time for them to head inside for the night. I haven't tested this extensively, but it seems pretty consistent.

The problem comes if the farmer goes to sleep while the animals are still outside with the doors closed, because then they won't be able to "teleport" inside. It's a weird interaction --Shiverwarp (talk) 20:39, 7 November 2016 (GMT)

It do happen when you are outside the farm map I believe. To add onto the topic, if you happen to trap an animal somewhere with no path back to the barn, they will still find a way back if you are not on the farm map. Also, leaving the door open overnight only seem to be a problem in case of thunderstorm. I didn't have time to play in a while, but the bold text on the page stating animals no longer go back into the barn trough the closed door doesn't seem right (and shouldn't be bold in the first place). there's no evidence of such a change in the patch note either. --Vg-tal (talk) 21:17, 7 November 2016 (GMT)

Interior Images

Best I could come up with. ^^ Had no luck editing out the clock hud thingy on the top right on the deluxe barn interior image so I left it in on the rest for consistency. Abigyil (talk) 11:00, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

By redirecting the Barn upgrade articles here, it seems the interior images showing maximized storage layouts have been removed. Sure, the material could use some compression and trimming, but total elimination seems a bit extreme. Butterbur (talk) 18:44, 4 June 2019 (BST)

I honestly have no idea what redirect you're referring to. The interior images showing maximized layouts are on the Keg page, with links to it from the Preserves Jar page. That's where they seem to be most relevant, when considering where to put massive amounts of kegs/preserves jars, instead of on the Barn page. margotbean (talk) 19:08, 4 June 2019 (BST)
Sorry then. I must have misremembered where they are, though I don't see the logic of having the images at Keg. BTW, I put Garden Pots in a Barn also. Different optimal arrangement for those, too. Searching on "Deluxe Barn" does indeed redirect to Barn, but that prompted another misremember as to article relocation. I was thinking of farming tools. Good to know the info is still there.

Upgrade requirements

There is no mention of any requirements to upgrade a barn to a big barn and a big barn to a deluxe barn.
What are the exact requirements for this? The requirements should perhaps be added for clarification.

Also, will something specific happen with the animals, when you upgrade a barn that houses animals? This could be useful to be added too. --Andre 601 (talk) 23:29, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

The upgrade info is already on the page, in the large infobox. margotbean (talk) 23:43, 7 June 2020 (UTC)
