We'd like to try using this thread to track clear updates about changes to the AI. But first, some all important disclaimers! Not all the changes made to the AI can be logged as and when they happen Sometimes the changes made by the programmers require other departments to update or pack their data Sometimes that's not always possible right away (i.e. changes to AI Costmaps for terrain, tweaking of new/refined values in configs) Sometimes the changes must be put on hold while we make sure/prevent them from entirely annihilating the rest of the game Sometimes the changes must be reverted because they destroy more than they heal. Sometimes our programmers have to work, rather than talk about working. We hope it helps shine some light on the ongoing refinements/fixes being made to the AI, and can help to frame/promote some useful feedback/discussion/understanding about the current state/future direction and progress. You can discuss the changes across in the AI Dev Branch Discussion thread. Best, RiE First set of notes follows: It wasn't supposed to fix rotation speed of AI soldiers, but is letting them use "aiming deadzone" as specified in the unit config (minGunTurnAI, maxGunTurnAI) which is typically 60 degrees cone. Therefore currently AI should be able to follow targets better without moving whole body. RPG and NLAW are supposed to be unguided, but AI was still able to use them as guided weapons. This was corrected. Quite big change, now AI is able to calculate and predict accurate ballistic of bullet, therefore is able to aim and engage targets on all ranges, both static and moving. Also, this improves AI ability to hit moving targets by more precise time of leading calculation. Good way to check this change is try to fight AI sniper on 1km+ range. Of course it still depends on his skill. AI was considering animals as friendly, therefore denied to shot in theirs direction. Example: put yours character, enemy soldier and snake animal between you. After this fix AI won't bother with friendly fire against animals. N.b. Sometimes I'll quote one one of our Programmer's comments, but reserve the right to make splendid editorial adjustments! :cool:
Hi, I have just started campaign mode and reached to the point where I am supposed to take the lead of small suad. The issue is that the default AI in the campaign mode are very, very bad: they do not listen to orders, they do completely oposite to what I tell them to do, they freeze, get stuck at repeating some words all the time, they won't advance, they won't fire a launcher even if I put a soldier right ahead of an enemy vehicle, it will just stay and star and wait to get killed ,in fact they are an absolute bullshit. I have no fun in this game because of this. Is there a way to replace those AI with a mod in the campaign mode?
hello! i have a situation where i need to create a respawn marker, make all players and A.I. respawn, then delete the marker, so no more respawn are allowed. it works on players, but A.I. bots (all playable units) keep respawning also without a marker!! please help me stop this madness !! thanks !
TheRedeyedSoldier posted a topic in ARMA 3 - MISSION EDITING & SCRIPTINGI was making a mission where a base in under attack and a group of about 20 men (all in hunters) are on there way to reinforse it. The enemies come in via air trasnport and when the ai see them they all stop and dismount. I tired making the AI careless but when I do that they just get out of the hunters at the start and barly even move. I have tried locking the hunters and that does not work either. Please help!
