    Wild animals aren't spawning?

    The only animals that spawn are during missions when they are specific to that mission (e.g fashion week, the hurk one with the elephant), attack dogs and ones when I throw my bait. I have had this problem since I used co op. It is nice to walk around and not be attacked by a wild honey badger or wolf but I need to get the tusker trophy and finish the crafting which is nearly impossible if no wild animals are spawning! I have googled and only found 1 other person who has encountered this problem. Really don't want to have to start again please help

    please try the following

    delete your gamerprofile .xml file , the game will make a new one on its own the next time ya launch it

    you can find that file in documents \ my games \ far cry 4 \ a sub folder with a series of letters and numbers .. this will vary from system to system as thats tour Uplay ID \ gamerprofile

    that file holds all of your in game settings

    next VERIFY your game files

    To verify your files if you bought the game thru Steam ..\EXIT Steam ..right click your steam icon ..select run as Administrator


    to launch Steam


    then go to your Steam games library


    right clik on far cry 4


    select properties


    select local files


    select verify Integrity of game cache


    it takes a few min to do but its faster the redownloading your entire game , if its only a few files that were corrupt or installed incorrectly .... this in many cases will fix your problems


    If you have the U play only Version of the game you can also verify your game files with U play


    if you have the game via u play only here are instructions how to verify your game files thru their client
    Again its probably best to make sure you launch Uplay as RUN as Administrator when you do a file verify

    I play far cry on my ps3 so I don't know if this applies to me. The only files I can find is the saved data.
