AI knows about all units of the same side in the direction it is facing (within spotting distance)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


If an AI unit is facing another unit of the same side it will automatically become aware of that unit as long as it is within spotting distance. It does not matter if there are obstacles (eg. walls or buildings) in the way.

Video highlighting the issue:

AI Issues
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Place two units of the same side on opposites side of a building / wall.
  2. Make the units face each other.
  3. Kill one of the units with a supressed/silent weapon.

Expected: The remaining unit should remain unaware of the other unit.

Observed: The remaining unit is immediately alerted.

Additional Information

The remaining unit is only alerted when the other unit is killed. If the player only fires the weapon without killing the unit, other unit is not alerted.

This seems to have been fixed, cannot reproduce in 1.35.127767.

Thanks for the feedback! Marking as resolved.

I'll have to look at this as previously they could detect dead units through walls even when not in the same group.

I hope it fixes that also.
