I'm sure many of you have noticed this stupid thing with AI which looks quite unnatural when it comes under fire in the open field - when it isn't prone it just stands making itself a very easy target - and it happens all too often.
Surely for a human commander this is very easy to fix by ordering AIs to crouch and then their survival rate goes up ten times but what about when the squad is being led by an AI leader (like enemy squads)?
So the suggestion is as follows:
- When in 'danger' mode AI leader orders crouch stance
- When AIs come under fire they are still able to go prone to avoid being shot
- Note this won't hurt AI moving from one waypoint to another as the engine already has them running normally even when crouch stance is ordered
- When AIs go back into 'aware' mode the leader orders standing stance as it is now
If you think it's needed to be done and there is a better way post it
