Nice idea.

 

Does it work in jungle environment too? Also are SF units excluded? Or units on stealth? Is it still possible to suprise the AI?

It works in the Jungles yes, anywhere that contains a bunch of trees/bushes etc.

 

SF units are not excluded, they still have feet for crushing branches.

 

The way to move with stealth is to move slower.  if you go tactical pace and especially walking your chance of cracking on a branch is reduced and the distance the sound will travel will be lower as you break them with less force.  So you can still surprise the enemy but it requires using steady movement to do so.

Looks like you have uploaded CF_BAI instead of Woodland. At least thats what i get if i subscribe to this addon on Steam.

Released 1.1 which includes some bug fixes, tweaks to the default settings and some performance improvements when there are hundreds of AI running on one box (such as the server or headless client).

No script?

It uses scripts, unavoidable. There is no event or sound system for being near trees so there isn't a lot of choice in it being scripted. It has been carefully done to ensure decent performance so it won't impact your frame rate.

 

I am also working on a way to cache the most expensive part of the calculation for this and CF_BAI and that should increase performance again, but that will mainly allow me to run the checks more often for the same cost.
