Version 14 Released

This release features a seemingly-minor change to animal movement (animals avoid walking in the squares adjacent to another dead animal, unless attacking) that has a huge impact on the game (a dead animal's body can no longer be used as a safe spot from which to lure and club other animals in many circumstances).  This makes pit bull placement much more tactically rich.

A minor bug with house change cost computation has also been fixed.

The new animal movement requires that all existing house security tapes be cleared, because they are no longer consistent with the latest movement rules.

Re: Version 14 Released

Nice update. Definitely helps lower houses protect their wives, leaving more houses on the list... effectively fixing one problem while helping fix another. Do the new rules apply only to pit bulls, only to dogs, or to all animals? Because if the same applied to cats, it might make for some interesting designs... wink

Re: Version 14 Released

Yes, applies to all animals.

Animals that are following you will step next to dead animals if that step brings them on top of you (both pit bulls and chihuahuas do this---the pit bulls are too hungry to resist, and the chihuahuas are too excited to resist when you're that close).
