Summary0004691: AI sometimes try to relight a doused overhead light when it's too far off the floor.
DescriptionThe problem is in the 2.05 code for SwitchOnLightState::Init(), at line 338:

if (gameLocal.clip.TracePoint(result, startPoint, bottomPoint, MASK_OPAQUE, NULL))

That NULL should be _goalEnt, causing the trace to ignore the light itself.

Somewhere between there and SwitchOnLightState::Think(), line 592:

idVec3 goalOrigin = _goalEnt->GetPhysics()->GetOrigin();

_goalEnt becomes NULL. Don't know why at this point.

If _goalEnt is too high for the AI to reach, SwitchOnLightState::Think() should never run.

TagsNo tags attached.

Since this was filed so long ago, and I didn't note the original circumstances where the problem was seen, I replicated an overhead light as best I could.

The code worked fine.

I went ahead and made the first change that I noted at the time, and checked for a NULL _goalEnt as the second change.

I'll put this on feedback in case anyone notices a problem before 2.07 gets released, at which point I'll have a better example.

No one's reported anything in 3 months, so I'm calling this resolved.
