ummm. Do you have knowledge of the physics of gliding, or have you studied the subject or do you fly a glider?

no..but its easy. There exist maps for thermal upwards currents and a wordwide map (this one  https://thermal.kk7.ch/)
"is implemented" in my glider and shown in the landscape as semitransparent cylinders, indicating where the air flows upwards.
Just approach these cylinders and circle inside them. Another way to gain height is to exploit "ridge-lift" which are the upwards air currents that form near a mountain slope. Just know from which direction blows the wind and look for mountain slopes that are as perpendicular as possible to the wind direction. On these slopes the wind will blow upwards lifting the glider. Just be careful that once crossed the top the air will flow down and drag you down..so intelligently exploit the landscape following the best slopes...like eagles and condors know to do very efficiently.

lesson1: trying to teach my cows not to walk too into deep  water...not easy...they're quite stubborn  >:(



after some "natural intelligence" training ..well, it seems they've learned it ...reasonably well  :)

Now comes lesson2: learn how to behave in mountains...they find it quite easy to walk downhill...probably they'll gather at some flat meadow :)



...yes indeed !  ...they're "naturally intelligent"  :D

So now that they've learned not to walk deep into water and like to walk downhill, what will they do when trapped between a slope and a lake ? 
let's see



you guessed it !  gather at the lake shore ! amazing :)

exploiting their inborn tendency to avoid steep slopes to confine them  =D

You actually using machine learning?  Neural Network / whatever?

Imagine to auto-generate cow-herds all over a mountain range such as the Alps..the herds will walk downhill untill they find a nice place where to gather, preferably near some small lake or in flat meadows....I hope it will be possible to populate outerra with animals all over the world . It really feels alive ! as soon as my cows have "graduated" I'll release them so that you also can experience outerra in this wholly new way. ...finally alive !

I mean, it would be funny if it looked like RL, but with cliffside cows.  :))

is this enough "cliffside" ?  =D  ...not sure if I will allow them to walk downhill so much




But goat-like cliffwalking for me seems acceptable
