Bird stop chasing

When I go to the back of the bird, at some point, the bird will stop chasing me. I wonder if anyone has the same problem and how to fix it?

Yes, it's not really an error, if you check the collision bounds of the bird, you'll see it's composed of two parts: a cylinder and a box. The cylinder is around the bird's feet and the box protrudes in front of it, but nothing extends out behind it. The bird has a relax distance when it gets near the player, so it doesn't overrun the frog. That means that if you get behind the bird, and are inside the relax distance, the bird won't chase you.

I have exploited that before, it's a fun trick. Hope this explanation is clear.


Ohhh I now understand, thank you so much! I have tried to change the relax distance, it's pretty okay now!
