W.D. Destroyer AI Pathing

Post by ChemNerd42 » Sat Nov 23, 2019 3:21 pm

Hello,

On the W.D. Destroyer ship, I've noticed multiple problems with their pathing:

1. Sometimes, and I don't know why, they'll just randomly die on the ship. It happens to all the bots regardless of type. It's most often noticed during the beginning of warp and end of warping.

2. AI bots often become stuck on the ramps on the bridge preventing them from reaching their stations.

3. AI scientist and engineer bots have been seen stuck behind the captain's chair running into each other trying to get to their stations.

These bugs aren't game breaking just annoying. I or my friend just fix the problem by removing the bots and then adding them back in depending on who is Captain.

Thanks for the great game!

Has anyone else had this problem with other ships?

I’ve had similar issues happen on the Annihilator and the Carrier.

The Annihilator will usually affect all but the PiBot, and usually results in them falling through the floor randomly. This especially occurs on the ramp leading down to the Main Turret and Pilot’s Seat. I think I even managed to fall through the floor on it once, though I haven’t been able to replicate it.

The Carrier’s main problem is that the bots will often get stuck on the console surrounding the Pilot’s Seat and rarely can get themselves unstuck.

If wanted, I could provide some videos of this happening.

I have had a similar problem with SciBot on the W.D. Cruiser, he dies during warps and it is quite frustrating because I have to reload the game when this happens in order to undo the decrease of maximum hit points.
