So I'm a visual artist by trade, and learning programming is really, really foreign to me. "novice" implies that I am sorta learning, and in truth I am probably below that haha. Please be patient with my newness, I will try my best to understand!
I am trying to make a pretty small game, but the very first snag I've hit is major.
In my game, I need "sheep" and other prey to do a few things
-Have randomized movement
-Flock together, occasionally, on grass. Slow down when in the grass.
-Run away if they see the player, to a safe distance
-If the player is sneaking, ignore the player for a certain distance, when the player is close enough, run away.
From searching, I tried the 'boids' plug in, but found the mechanics unsuited for the other traits I needed to add. I am unsure if the mechanics I am trying to achieve are too complex for my skill level, but I figure some of you could help me see the flaws in my logic.

You get to play my hilariously broken game!
