Alpha 1.12 is meant to be about dangerous creatures, but I am also adding other stuff. Apart from flat world and new move control you’ve already seen, there are two kinds of cows: black and brown. And they can be milked:
The new spawning system for animals creates herds, which is much nicer than random single animals. Also the AI has a new behavior that tries to keep the animals together, that is if an animal strays too far, it will try to get back. I want to add another behavior that will make bulls very protective about the cows. If you milk or attack a cow (which are defenseless) all the bulls in the herd will be after you :-)
Dangerous creatures are there as well, but aren’t finished enough yet.
