So many times I have died as I am running into a new area and an animal spawns off screen and immediately runs towards me.
As I gather some animals are supposed to try to avoid you. But since the area beyond the animal from you hasn’t loaded yet they seem to only have one option - and that is to run up, down, or directly towards you (when you run east/west)
Not sure if you could code animals to move a few seconds later after spawning / being triggered???
