5 comments by jeffr on Nov 27th, 2014

Here is the latest in our new Overgrowth alpha format! David himself took some time to illustrate the traditional changelog in video form.

Don't forget that you can help support us, try out our alphas (such as the one in the video), and chat with other preorderers in the Secret Preorder Forum by preordering Overgrowth.

Be sure to watch it in HD!

The features highlighted in the above video are as follows (among some extra ones thrown in for good measure):

- AI scripts are more optimized to support more simultaneous characters
- Ragdoll physics are more accurate and more efficient
- Moved all inverse kinematics and local physics animation from engine to script
- Improved chase AI
- No disqualification for arena overkill
- Updated weapon attachments for challenges since AI no longer grabs weapons in patrol
- Increased enemy sight distance
- Cat movement is much quieter
- Improved animation retargeting
- Changed unconscious ragdolls to be more limp
- Characters drop combat stance when enemy is unseen or otherwise not a threat
- Character loading works even if simplification fails
- Enemies are alerted by collision
- Debug keys can be toggled in settings
- Improved leg IK to handle foot orientation and hip movement
- Improved tail physics and tail collision with world geometry
- Calibrated eye morphs so they can look at precise points in space
- improved ear physics, ear collision, and idle ear rotation
- better gravity on roll animation
- new walk and sneak animations
- fixed Mac text rendering
- improved vertex bone weights for all characters
- breathing animation
- new idle behavior and weight shifting
- Added seamless cubemap toggle (to fix visible lines on some GPUs)
- Softened wolf fur normals

Thanks as always for all the support! See you guys in IRC and the forums.

Also, feel free to support us by preordering Overgrowth!

I remember the 1st one of this (the one that came before this one) I never gave it a go but my mate ended up getting it. Looked so cool and this just looks great. If anything please have this released on Steam when its done. Would really like to give this a go sometime :) Keep up the awesome work.

I think I read somewhere that that's their plan, and Lugaru HD is already on Steam too.

I think sneaking should be more viable, making the sound sheres smaller could help getting behind people and being stealthy

Are you guys thinking of adding new creatures? If you do, i think you should add badgers. they should be really strong and good with melee but really slow at walking, jumping and running.

They aren't planning on adding new animals, only dogs and rats. Besides, what you described really sounds like the wolves.

no turtles, turtles have shells and massive claws and can rip you in half with one snap, and they can hide in their shells
