Nether AI Improvements:
Nether behaviors are now more befitting of the monsters they are.
Trying losing your attackers by ducking in buildings and hiding places they can’t see you to get them off your trail.
If you make a loud noise, get out of there!! If they don’t see you, they might just leave.
Take refuge in buildings if you’re afraid of those prying eyes and ears. Nether can’t hear so well through walls!
No place is safe anymore. Now the Outposts periodically come under attack! See if you can activate the Anti-Nether Devices to save the outpost without alerting the Nether!
Make your way to the Safe Zone and purchase the Nether potion! Take up the reins as a crawler! Hunt those pesky survivors down and devour their bodies!
The crawler is quick and agile. He can run much faster and jump much higher than any survivor.
Teleport around using the Left Mouse. Watch your stamina! When you run out, you reappear.
Constant hunger - you're always hungry for more humans! Make sure to take them out whenever you find them or you'll starve!
Let us know what you think about the update!
