AI spotting through grass problem and general enemy identification.
New, WishlistPublic

Description

VERY annoying issue of AI seeing through grass (and other ground clutter) and the inability for human player to see enemy AI.

AI also recognise enemy units far too easily even if they just 'see' a very small part of the unit/player.

This is a cheap way out... I'd rather have AI just tuned up...

EDIT: As in updated.

I like tall grass D:. Sure the AI spotting thing sucks really badly but no I wouldnt want to have every field and forest looking really trimmed and cut like its just been mowed :D.

After 3 years this is still a problem that AI can spot a prone player in grass but the player can't see anything further than a few metres.

This is the worst gameplay killer

ai behavior depends on unitpos -> https://streamable.com/08b9q

really a problem...

Turn off grass (terrain to 'LOW') and you will see what the AI see.
That is why they can spot you when you have no chance to see them with grass on.

Please can something be done to AI without changing grass height?
