No names! But cows was really not what I expected to be asked.It may be less distracting if for example horses are kept in stalls - but then they will be scenery, not part of the playable geometry, and I find it much less interesting, possibly a waste of precious tiles.

This is exactly how I thought to place the farm animals, in stalls or in pens so that them not moving doesn't look too weird.

I'd rather not have animals added as units for a ton of reasons already mentioned above. But I think adding them as tiles can work quite alrighty

Since we're brainstorming, how about giving them very little TUs, like 10? It'd keep them looking alive yet not take that much time to watch them move.
I'm not saying that sheep or cows can't move fast, but... maybe they don't need to in this case. :P

Tall trees. "cylinder-shaped", these should be less annoying than the common UFO forest ones.

Animals as tiles will looks like lifeless obstacles rather than alive unit.
Terror mission in farm. But... As I understand without modifications to source codes animals will counts as civilians :D
