- Obstacle Avoidance
- Nearby Enemy Detection and Avoidance
- Age, Death, Hunger
- Behavior Types: Passive, Cautious, Friendly, Aggressive
- Foot IK and Footsteps
- Traits (Hungry, Energetic, Playful, Irritable, Curious, etc)
- Herds and Swarms (Groups of animals headed the same place!)
- Taming and Breeding
Here’s a quick screenshot of the works in progress.
