I have created a complex base on a remote island hundreds of blocks from land. It's got everything I want/need except livestock like cows and sheep.
Is it possible to get livestock to spawn in this situation?
If I can't get livestock to spawn what is the easiest way to get livestock to a remote island?
The only idea I've come up with (that doesn't involve a several hundred block landbridge) is to link to Nether Portals via a cobblestone/ underground tunnel and herd the animals through the Nether from a plains/forest biome.
