AI cannot enter or exit remotely-controlled vehicle when stopped
Reviewed, NormalPublic


Since the changes to vehicle remote control from the commander/gunner seat in 1.78, the AI cannot mount or dismount any vehicle that is being remotely controlled by a player from any commanding seat, when the same is stopped.

When being told to mount the vehicle, they simply walk to a certain distance from the entry point and stop.

When being told to dismount, they simply stay in the vehicle.

In either case, moving the vehicle forwards or backwards by any amount will allow the AI to complete the order. Removing the driver from the vehicle (via a script), switching to the driver seat (so it's under direct player control), getting out of the vehicle (so it's not commanded by the player anymore), or otherwise giving the control of the vehicle back to the AI (by telling them to stop manually, via 1-6) will also allow the AI to carry out the order.

Again, this only happens if the player controls the vehicle remotely from the commander or gunner seat (via the WASD keys). Telling the AI to move somewhere via the command menu, driving the vehicle manually, etc, don't cause the bug.

AI Issues
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Place any multi-seat crewed vehicle in the editor, with the player as the commander and an AI driver (eg. AMV-7 Marshall).
  2. Place an additional AI squad member subordinate to the player near the vehicle.
  3. From the commander seat, manually order the vehicle to move forwards or backwards (W or S).
  4. Order the additional squad member to enter the vehicle in any seat, while the vehicle is fully stopped.

(AI should walk to the vehicle and get stuck)

Additional Information

Possible workarounds:

  • Move the vehicle forwards or backwards
  • Switch to the driver seat
  • Tell the AI driver to stop (1-6)
  • Get out of the vehicle
