          I'll certainly be buying this once your first update is live and the animations are cleaned up a bit.

            If your update includes an option to change flap speed for taking off, and flap/fly speed when in air you got my money.

              Here is a little update on the progress of Birds.
              The Birds now flap their wings faster when close to the ground.
              Also see how the birds land, they slow down their descent while flapping faster.

              TheMoejahi3d.- the flight and walking speed can be easily edited in the character blueprint. you can also adjust the animation PlayRate to suit your needs.

              its also easy to edit the birds run away distance and Fly away distance, and the speed at which they do so.

                    please add controlable starting & landing areas / points (trees would be super, too ) and ut would be an instant buy for me.
                    maybe we could have real geometry as starting / landing points, so we could add invisible 2d/3d objects to the scene to controll where the birds are ..
                    i need a scene with many bird in a tree and when my character approaches the tree, they all flew away

                        wow thx a lot for integrating this !
                        looks pretty impressive !
                        how can we set where the birds are starting and landing from ?
                        can they land back on the tree ?

                        once the update is online, i will buy it instantly to test it !
                        maybe some control over size and size variations of the birds would be nice, too.
                        and perfect would be if there are more bird models, or we could add them manualy.

                        this is becoming a really nice package !!!!!

                        P.S. do the birds have audio ? wings flapping while starting etc ...

                          The perching birds will start wherever you place them, they don't need to start on a Perching Target.
                          They will stay at their starting point until the player gets within an editable distance.
                          Then they fly up to the sky and fly to random Sky Targets for an editable amount of time.
                          Then they will fly down to a random Perching Target and perch for an editable amount of time, if the Perching Target is occupied they will pick another one. if all the Perching Targets are occupied they will fly back up to the sky and try again in an editable amount of time.
                          When the perching timer is up they will return to the sky and the process starts over again.

                          Here is an image of a Perching Target (The thing on that stick), you may place them anywhere you like.
                          On each Perching Target you can set whether the birds should rotate to face that arrow or not.

                          As far as size- you can change their scale on a per bird basis.
                          I will be adding more birds (Geo and textures), I'm just getting behaviors nailed down first.
                          As far as sound- I haven't set anything up yet, but I will add it to the list.

                            Can you attach perching targets to assets in the asset browser instead of manually placing them in the world? I wonder how it would scale in a forest setting if each of your tree assets had perch points and your forest was 1km square.

                              Great question, I'll look into this.
                              one thing you can do for sure is select the tree with all the Perching Targets in it- group them, then duplicate that group around your level.
