Great work with the oryx. If someone can now draw a nice texture for it, we have a great new animal.
That would be awesome. I think it would be our first animal that can walk on land and swim in water. Is that even possible at the moment?
I think we don't have a sophisticated animal AI yet.
I also like how crocodiles tend to sit on a stone for hours without moving a bit and looking just like the stone while they are such an agile predator in the water (or if a prey moves too close).
Crocodile is indeed an interesting animal. It can move in water and on land, doesn't move a lot on land, but is fast in the water. And when in the water, it should float with almost the entire body under water.
I'm thinking, for the sake of simplicity, we could have two models. As they behave so different. So in Atlas, we could have water-crocodile and land-crocodile. Water-crocodile attacks could also be nicely animated with water splashes. So definitely in interesting animal to have.
@Micket, this doesn't matter for modelling though, the model would just be in the game twice. With different animations and speed stats.
