You've been making some nice progress, but one thing I don't like is the "death noise" the rabbits make when they die, sounds a bit high pitched.

Indeed, I am agree with you because... I´ll not kill a real bunny for only record his/her/it cries of death. D:

Also is a videogame, any sound is always welcome and always exist the posibility of change the rules in some cases. :)

You don't want to use the death cry of a real rabbit. It'll get annoying fast.

Yeah, I played the game at one of my friends that preordered and I was amazed to see how good it was. If there will be any way to work on a Intel Chipset I will buy too, until then I'll just watch. Nice update btw.

And if you can stealth your movements with the noise of the wind, grass and water? Will be nice for add strategies for make ambushes. o3o

The weekly progress is amazing, it's awesome to see how a professional team works on a game see it's progression.

Maybe one noise should make the enemy stop and look around and a second one would make them investigate....

Or it could be random or depend on difficulty and faction?

It seems weird when the AI hears one sound and immediately turns to investigate.

Yeah, that seems more realistic. But don't forget that this is just preliminary code for a very deep feature. In fact, it's amazing that you guys can keep adding features AND fixing the myriad of bugs I'm sure you're dealing with. Keep up the good work!
