How to get AI to keep formation in SAFE mode?

Recommended Posts

Pretty basic question but I'm really only recently delving into playing with AI; is it possible to have your squad keep a reasonably coherent formation while in SAFE mode?

 

I find I often want to adopt a patrol/travel stance where weapons are lowered but setting the squad to SAFE to achieve this leads to them milling and moseying around like they're on a picnic. Every other mode and weapons are up like they're expecting imminent trouble.

 

Any tips?

Thanks. Honestly I'd have hoped there was a way to achieve this without scripting (and I'm not sure anything in those links suggests how it might be done with). Probably I'd investigate an FSM edit first.

 

A video to illustrate what I mean; 

 

 

 

Hopefully I've linked that 1:10 in. @jeza has three squad mates who exhibit the AWARE behaviour I'd like to avoid (in formation but weapons raised) while the local units (apparently not under his control and presumably following a waypoint) are doing what I'd like from my own AI in a 'patrol' mode keeping formation but with a relaxed stance.
