AI wont keep lights turned on when scripted to do so!
New, WishlistPublic


Currently you can not force an AI vehicle to turn their lights on or off. For example, I want an Orca Heli to have its lights on at night, but can not without a dirty and wasteful script that loops every frame or 0.01 seconds.

I would also like to be able to disable UGV lights VIA script, but also allow a UAV operator to switch them on or off. I am already aware that the operator can force them off in the UAV terminal, but that's not what I need.

The code that works, but is very wasteful:

null=[] spawn { while {true} do { player action ["lightOn", VEHICLE_NAME]; sleep 0.01};};

Yea, BI, if you can, please make a script command to allow us to force lights on AI. Attaching a light isn't really useful when there is already a light... and are useless right now. They only work for a single frame!

This is still an issue on the dev branch.
