Poor AI convoy movement / pathfinding
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I put 4 hunters in the editor and told them all to go to a point across the map, i put them in close column formation and they did the same stop/go/wait up thing they do in arma 2

I then put a single hunter and told him to go, i was very impressed by how good he was.

PROBLEM is this: I put 4 hunters in the editor, they are all in my group. I tell ONE hunter to go somewhere, and the rest stay put. The hunter that is moving thinks that he is still in a formation and drives very slow as if he is waiting for the others to form up.

Sounds like the AI group logic forcing the AI to wait up since it's part of a group, rather than pursuing the fact it was told to go solo.

Updated the title for clarity.
