Hello there! Recently progress has been made on the behavior of various critters as well as the security bots that patrol certain outdoor areas. Here's a shot of some feisty critters:
Critters have a very basic form of intelligence and now have nesting homes as well as food sources throughout each level. They'll try to find a suitable home and/or food source depending on where they are (it's possible for the player to interact and manipulate critters). Here's an example overhead shot of some food sources (green) and nesting areas (yellow):
The security bots have been updated as well. They'll patrol certain areas in a somewhat random way unless something catches their attention. They've also been updated with an animation to give them more life, so to speak (see gif below - also disabled the AI to capture the gif). They've also been updated so they can traverse the terrain in a more intelligent way.
Here's a static shot of a typical hovering security bot:
Thanks for reading! Stay tuned for more updates.
