    Will the birds land on locations without the Bird_Perch_TargetPoint?
    No, A perching bird will only perch on places with a Bird_Perch_TargetPoint. It could be that the bird was landing on the ground and the beam got in the way. is there a ground target near that beam?

      No ground targets near the beam. I have seen them land on other things also. Will do some more testing.

              Birds is currently setup for single player setup. I'll look into multiplayer in future updates.

                Really nice Asset, however I am having problems with a water plane. My scenery is basically a ship which sits on a water plane in the map. My birds take off, fly but somehow fly into the water to land on the ocean surface. How can I tell the birds to avoid the water?

                  You might try disabling their collision during flight.
                  If the birds collide with anything during flight they will always fall down to the ground or in your case the water.

                    It is not a matter of them colliding with anything in the air and falling down. The birds circle in the sky and then when they go to land they are not registering the water plane and fly right through it to land on the sea floor. So they more or less disappear from sight. Would it be possible to tell the birds to avoid the waterplane mesh?

                        I guess you didn't see my reply to your IM. Have you placed ground targets in your level? When its time to land the birds don't just land anywhere, they land where the ground targets are. so if they are flying to the bottom of your water then I'm guessing something is not setup correctly.

                          Disregard this post! Was sitting in submission hell while I was chatting with you via IM.

                            Hi,

                            I've bought this, but I expected higher quality considering the price.

                            - There is no take-off animation - from close up, the birds look very fake. Real birds crouch, 'leap' into the air, and flap fast while transitioning to flight. At the moment they just switch instantly from standing to full-speed flight.

                            - There is no landing animation - watching crows, I see a common pattern of normal descending flight, when they are close to the ground there are two (sometimes three) wing beats to slow speed, then a short 'drop' into a slight crouched landing position, then they are standing as normal.

                            - The wing shape on the crows is wrong for when they are flying - crow wings (unlike seagulls) typically remain quite flat, but currently in your plugin the crows' wing tips bend significantly downwards when they are flying, making their flight look very wrong.

                            Some of this is covered in the YouTube video because the birds are only shown transitioning from running into flight, not standing into flight. At the moment, the plugin content will only be useful for very distant birds, and not at all useful for anything closer to the player. This is quite an expensive item, and you have been working on it for several years, so I had really expected more.

                            Do you have plans to improve these aspects, or should I ask for a refund?

                              Thanks for your input in helping make Birds a better product. I shall add improving the crow animations to the list for future updates.
