Factions[edit | edit source]
Factions are groups of NPCs that form societies with their own culture, habits, blockset, and role to play in the story of Hytale.
Animals[edit | edit source]
Animals are creatures which players can hunt, domesticate, and raise. They can also interact with each other. Animals are usually passive.
Monsters[edit | edit source]
Monsters are hostile creatures including boss encounters and combat challenges which are designed for a specific environment and takes planning to defeat. Players will need to learn how monsters operate in order to defeat them.
Other creatures[edit | edit source]
- Tessa and Kyros
- Inhabit Orbis.
Behavior scripting[edit | edit source]
The behavior scripting system uses JSON scripts which call on modular behavior elements that enable users to specify how an NPC perceives the world and how it reacts in different situations. These scripts can trigger actions such as animations and changes in state; for example, a creature that has been attacked might try to either flee or defend itself.
