|Target Version||TDM 2.08||Fixed in Version||TDM 2.08|
|Summary||0005164: Reduce Instances of AI sitting/sleeping in strange places.|
|Description||When an AI can't travel to a path_corner that's tied to sitting/sleeping, he will skip the travel and show the sitting/sleeping animation wherever he is.|
Also, for an AI that starts a map using the "sitting" or "sleeping" flags, if he stands up or wakes up, he might not be able to get back to his starting position.
Both of these conditions should be debugged during mission alpha/beta, but sometimes they slip through. The problem probably lies in the design of the area involved in sitting/sleeping, particularly monster_clip placement and height.
The improvement would be to skip the sit/sleep animations at faraway locations.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Abort sitting/sleeping animations if the AI’s current location is too far from the location where they’re supposed to play them. The AI isn’t able to move to the correct location, which is usually a monster_clip problem that the mapper needs to correct.
Fixed in rev. 8608:
This change prints warnings to the console when the AI tries to sit or sleep in the wrong place.
The sitting and sleeping wiki pages have been updated to let mappers know what to do if they see these warnings.
I wonder why warning is suppressed if guard is on different level.
Although the chance that X and Y match but Z does not is very low, so that's not important.
That is one "hole" in the warning.
When checking distance from where the guard is to where he's supposed to sit/sleep, I zero out the z delta. The reason for that is that many mappers paid no attention to the "place the path_corner on the ground" instruction in the wiki, and they've buried them in the ground or raised them above the ground. If the z delta is part of the "how close am I" math, this can cause a false negative and a warning gets issued and the animation doesn't occur. IMHO it's better to assume the chances are very small that the guard is directly over or under the sitting path_corner, but at a large z distance (i.e. a different floor of a house).
