    Summary
    Barbarian behavior has been improved. They now choose their targets, attacking the player when possible or destroying wood to escape instead of trying to get through stone. When barbarians attack, they will shout as they come near to the player. Sometimes the barbarians will spawn in groups instead of one at a time. They can also attack while they are running. Additionally, we have added particle effects for weapons and tools including blood, splinters and sparks. Moreover, new roof blocks have been added for survival building - the wooden roof, hay roof and their variants (corner, inverted corner). Also if you kill a deer you can get meat from it. Lastly, players will start from now on with 55 food points when they respawn in the game.

    - improved barbarian AI
    - weapon particle effects
    - barbarians spawn in groups
    - barbarians attack while running

    - fixed sounds of blocking while fighting with barbarians

    No Barbarians with hair? That's quite the dissappointment.


    Other than that: great!

    those barbarians are definitely fearless, everyone know what a wagon going downhill can do in ME

    Very nice update, I like these details:
    -barbarian stopping destruction as soon as the engineer comes outside
    -barbarian placement around the player

    The AI... Ugh... What can I say? Don't quit your day job for that GoodAI project keen...

    The weapon particle effects, like the motion effects in SE, look completely rubbish and amateurish to be honest.

    AS the friend ZDEVELOPER said, the cargo ships just move in one direction, there is no A.I. on cargo ships, what i expect when ive said about "barbarian ships in SE" was enemy fighters/drones/ ships /etc that has an A.I. and search for the players kinda like the barbarians.
