    SERVER NAME: Private

    Severity: Minor

    Type: Aliens

    Summary: Alien/bugs NPC behaviour after restart/revisit

    Description: I was visiting some alien bases and aliens spawned and was working as they should. I left the base and logged out and came back for more action the day after. No the alien is still there and interact a bit but they are not that smart and when shot they just dissapere insted of fall down for loot. Same for both aliens and bugs.

    Steps to Reproduce: Visit a alien base and let some spawn. Leave the area. Log out and come back later. Shoot the aliens.

    Heres is a video showing the issue: https://imgur.com/a/BM9mCBe

    ***

    UPDATE!

    I now seen this issue on Drones. At places I have visited days ago. When I come back the drones is dumb parked on the ground. They interact some but the AI seems broken.

    So new topic name sould be "AI broken when returning to NPCs"

    ***

    PS! I have no clue if this is happening in vanilla game or if it is the Project Eden senario that is causing it.

    Hi are you able to send me the save game for this issue ? & note the coordinates down for any locations where this issue is happening in the save game for the character to visit.

    Any idea roughly about the shortest amount of time it takes for this to happen ?

    A issue like this the scenario used shouldn't matter.

    I decided to restart a fresh server with no senario to see if I can reproduce this issue. I will return with my findings.

    I can confirm that this issue also happends in a fresh 11.5.3 Multiplayer dedicated server. Revisited Pois, NPCs have a broken AI. I will send some files when I can. I can also give access to the server for tests.

    Strange so far for me I have been revising many POI's & the AI has appeared to react fine when I return as soon as you can send me a save game with this issue happening it will be appreciated.
    Please leave your character near a POI that you know this happens.

    Here is a first encounter where I yesterday triggered an alien spawn and left the POI. Today when reurned the alien was there and AI seemed to work. But when I shot it down it just dissaperes with no corpse or loot as described above.

    The AI seems working and the ones on last game where the drones was stuck on ground I have not yet manage to reproduce. This might be and issue with the big senario (Project Eden) and some memory overload maby.

    I will send link to the save file in message.

    Ok there is 2 separate issues going on 1 with the drones & 1 with the NPC's disappearing when killed.
    Both are logged & will be looked into asap thanks for the report.
