[Beta 13] Thief drones not moving
« on: June 01, 2024, 11:15:35 AM »

In the first attached save file, the upper-left thief drone isn't moving to attack, regardless of how long i wait.
This first case resolved after i ordered a drone (i think the one that wasn't moving?) to come back then deployed it again.

In the second attached save file, the bottom thief drone has stolen something, but isn't coming back to me, no matter how long i wait.
This second case resolved when the other drone stole something and returned.

(Sorry, i just realized as i finished writing this report that screenshots might've been useful and would've clarified the situation without the need to load those files.)

These aren't bugs, they are standard pathing behavior for adjacent robots during combat, which will wait if they're blocked by an adjacent bot that is currently occupying their most advantageous direct path.

You can see the same behavior around doorways or obstacles when fighting enemies at close range, which is why that works as a tactic to begin with.

There will be some occasional alternative behavior coming in Beta 14, but this is all normal.
