Very impressive work! I can't wait for this thing to come out!
I've been developing some advanced AI behavior based on position clustering, using non-proprietary techniques (no software licenses needed, etc.). If you're interested, I can help to create the data clustering info needed for your new areas, which can be used to give NPC's some robust behaviors.
For a quick demo of the possibilities, please check out the first video on my YouTube channel, here:
Happy to discuss if there are any interested parties. Cheers!
