AI generate a path despite using disableAI "PATH"
Reviewed, NormalPublic


When you command an AI to move somewhere, the AI path finding will always generate a path, even if "PATH" feature is disabled.

This only happens with commands that set the planning mode as "LEADER PLANNED" (such as doMove, or ordering the unit using the commanding menu)

This is not a serious problem, but it's a waste of performance and sometimes undesired.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Add an AI unit to your group called AI
  2. run this code:
AI disableAI "ALL";
AI addEventHandler ["PathCalculated", {systemChat str _this}]
  1. Order the AI to move somewhere using the commanding menu. Notice that a path is generated
