X-Plane's managed to have huge flocks of seagulls to fly into (another source of catharsis, even if it fatally breaks my aircraft most of the time) all rendered in 3d without frame issues.

its not that its hard to implement rather the time required to complete the animation. walkcycles from a techincal perspective are amoung the most difficult and time consuming jobs for animators. Quadruped walkcycles are even more tricky to do well. watch Shrek u never see more than 1-2 sec of donkeys legs animated in a particular shot....animating seagulls is nowhere near as difficult.

Don't get me wrong I think it would be a nice feature i personally would like to see more animated life in general occuring within the game. It really adds to the players immersion. However its always a trade off between time money and priorities and at this stage i think its more about polishing than production.

ROFLMAO, that's pretty much how it would go. Pure win in that post. If you had put "elderberries" somewhere in that post I would have lost bladder control lol.

I will not be shooting horses. Commo hippies though..... Did they have commo hippies in WWII? Could they be seen or smelled form the air? Can you still see them when they are hiding behind unrealistically large trees? Now I am going back to rethink my position on gore.
