    Interesting. Are you ray casting from AI's heads so they only see what's in front of them? Or is it a sort of ambient perception?

    Directly from Emrys90: "It's just currently calculating the angle from their forward position. That may or may not change."

    Can dragon hatchlings disguise themselves with leaves, mud, etc., to lower the chance they will be detected? Calling dibs on the hatchling rogue class. ;)

    And grats on joining the team, Animlouis!

    Cool, cool!

    I was looking at the Raycast API, wonder if each actor could generate a disabled Collision sphere acting as a "stealth layer." Raycast and filter out all but that layer, if it hits the actor detects. The components stealth layer could be dynamically sized based on the conditions as mentioned in the post.

    *shrug* afternoon thoughts on a topic I'm vastly unqualified to speak to hehehe

    Whoa, didn't you get here a very short while ago AnimLouis? Glad to see you're already contributing so much, and congrats on getting to be a part of such a terrific team.

    I read this earlier but didn't have time to post, but I've been anticipating every dev blog because of how fun it is to read them, not going to lie. Really liking the concept of stealth so far!

    Yeah he did get here recently, but as Forged Chaos has been needing animators for a while now they obviously reeled him in fast.

    He actually signed up for the forums after he started his trial period with us. ;)
