Dead bodies on ground break AI pathfinding
Closed, ResolvedPublic


AI can't step over bodies and the existence of bodies seems to break the path-finding in smaller areas. {F20843}

Steps To Reproduce

I uploaded a video in addition to the repro mission -

Additional Information

Just one dead body can make a substantial area of ground inaccessible to AI. If a squad member dies you will have difficulty moving another into the same position. Can be a problem in CQB.

Oh the pathfinding in confined spaces, so much joy ^^
Also, you might want to make that video you linked public, so people can watch it ;)

Video is set to private.

Oh what moron did that!? Should be fixed now.

Yeah well done that explains why they keep acting like that on some of my missions. In fact it all makes sense now. This needs fixing ASAP.

oh.. this quite a serious issue!

I can reproduce this with beta branch as of 08-22.

+1. Big problem. Also look at this issue, it's interesting to manage differently the path-finding, the issue is for building but it can work outside too with differents areas.

Thanks for making a video of this! I reported this on the closed duplicate ticket, and was starting to think no one else noticed this problem. I've actually had this happen in more open areas before, with only a part of a body blocking the paths, so it doesn't even have to be as bad a blockage as the video demonstrates for it to break.
