Oh good, they've fixed the speed parameters.
Because all they did previously was pretty much make your jump break:

Loving how this is coming along. Always excited for the weekly updates! May now experiment with some ambient occlusions myself, if they don't make Unity cry. Haven't messed with them since my Maya days but loved the effect nonetheless.

hey, as a suggestion:
Some races (like cats) could have a alternative vision mode using the alternative vision modes showed by the video. This could be used as a kind of night sight.

Does the direction the guard is looking influence whether or not it can see you? That would add a really neat element of stealth to the gameplay...

Those alternative vision are cool, like said x56erx will be an excellent idea, or for add a kind of "storytelling" scenes.

I was wondered how many resourses consume those graphic effects for the PC?

I am surprised with the advances, congrats and keep the work, I want to see dogs or kitties fighting too. :D

SSAO is a terrible effect, good to know that it won't be mandatory.

Nah, s'good.

The only effect I've always hated is DOF blur. Correct motion blur and some good ssao is always a good thing.

I faceplam at my downvotes. I didn't say his implementation was not good, I said the effect itself was ****. You people are really stupid.

Have you made the AI look in the directions of sound, I think that would make it look better.
