|Summary||0005221: 'Choose model...' on AIs opens model chooser without any model selected|
|Description||If I try to click on the 'Choose model...' button of the "model" spawnarg in order to change the model of an AI, the model chooser opens without showing any model and with all folders collapsed. It only shows the materials of the model.|
This seems to be due to the fact that TDM's AI entity defs only name the model itself, omitting the file path and the file extension.
If I replace the default "model" "tdm_ai_nobleman" with "models/md5/chars/nobles/nobleman1/tdm_ai_nobleman.md5mesh", the model chooser behaves correctly.
|Steps To Reproduce||1) 'Create entity' -> AI -> Nobles -> Armed -> atdm:ai_nobleman02_armed|
2) 'Show inherited properties' -> model -> click on 'Choose model...'
3) The model chooser opens at top level without any model selected and all folders closed. It does however show the materials used by the current model.
4) Replace the "model" spawnarg with models/md5/chars/nobles/nobleman1/tdm_ai_nobleman.md5mesh
5) Click on 'Choose model...' -> the model chooser opens with the current model selected and displayed.

|Would it be of any use to set the "model" spawnarg on those AI entities? Just choosing the .md5mesh file is not enough to change an AI's model including animations, is it?|
It depends on the model, if I want a nobleman to "wear" a commoner's clothes changing the model should be sufficient because the skeleton & animations are the same, but not for female <> male or human <> monster switches.
It's a bug in its own right, though, that the 'Choose model...' button for AIs opens the model chooser without any model selected and all folders collapsed.
I just tried changing the model spawnarg to some md5mesh, but this is just refusing the start the map due to missing joint information. It doesn't work.
But I assume it would be more helpful if the model chooser listed the actual "modelDef" declarations, such that the "tdm_ai_nobleman" can be swapped to something like "tdm_ai_townsfolk_commoner"?
|Ah, so the "model" spawnarg actually points to a modelDef, explaining this bug. Listing and choosing from modelDefs in addition to regular models would sure be useful in the situation where I encountered this bug.|
