  1. This game looks really promising, and I’m really hyped for it.
    One question I wanted to ask was; is wildlife going to be treated as detailed as the players? Will the animals in the game act as they are meant to? By this I mean grouping behaviors for fauna such as deer or buffalos who group together in herds and act together and intricate stuff like that. Or will animals just be solitary and walking around until they come in contact and attack a player like in games like rust (really takes out the immersion). How is the animal AI? Will they be able to wander the forest in search of food and have their own survival needs? (E.g. a bear searching for berries and food to meet it’s caloric intake and deer eating shrubbery in a group and wolves looking for deer to hunt) and will the animals be able to navigate their environment without colliding into trees and rocks? I’ve also noticed in games such as rust and Conan exiles – animals are always on a swivel. They have no turning animation, they all turn at the same speed, and all turn in the same spot. For example, the animals would just turn 360 without any leg movement and they would do it at the same speed. It looks very bad and not immersive. Will a system like that be implemented or will animals cautiously turn around having animations and have actual spacial awareness? I know these are a lot of questions, but I’m just really hyped for the game. Thank you.

    • For now the animal AI will be basic. All will have animations and look natural, they will walk around scan the area. Hostile animals will attack you other animals will run from you ect. A complex AI takes a lot out of the CPU so we need to be careful. Ofc in later stages we will improve them as much as possible.
