Summary0004276: Path connections disappear when one endpoint is not visible
DescriptionWith 2.0.4 pre 1, if I have path node A targeted to path node B, both are in a visible layer, and A is visible on the screen and B isn't, DR doesn't paint the target line from A to B. Ditto if B is on the screen and A isn't.

This makes it difficult to get a general sense of where an AI is traveling unless his entire path is visible.

This is new behavior.
Additional InformationOn the other hand, if AI C targets path node D, and one or the other is not in the view, the connection line still gets painted.

Connection lines should only get dropped when an object disappears due to being in a hidden layer.
TagsNo tags attached.

This is due to the Octree filtering out scene nodes. If a node is not rendered, its target keys are not drawn either. A possible workaround would be to submit the target lines as separate entities (either to the scene or to the rendering system). One has to take care not to use the GlobalRenderSystem() but the one attached to the owning entity node.

The issue I think isnt that the path_nodes aren't being render but that the target lines between them aren't. For example a given path_wait or path_corner can be just off-screen and he target line is still drawn, but then you move the view so the path_node goes further off-screen its at that point the target-line disappears. And this dosent apply to all path_nudes that are off screen either.

The issue with the target lines disappearing is that its almost impossible to follow a given path, as you have to stop move the camera around contently to see where the paths are going - vastly slowing down workflow.
