AI move to idle state between waypoints
Assigned, WishlistPublic


The AI move into idle state when reach waypoint(without timeout) and not follow the next waypoint immediately. There is a idle animation state between two move animation. This make the AI behave like a AI not like a human.

How should it work?
The AI should follow the next waypoint immediately(without any idle animation) when there is no timeout for the waypoint. The next animation should be based on the following waypoint attributes.

The idle state is: amovpercmstpslowwfldnon

I found that it only happens in Multiplayer (tested with dedicated server). The same waypoints work fine in single player.
