    Summary: Using the Input function of the dialogue system shuts off AI until it is turned back on.

    Description: When using the Input function of the dialogue (where the player manually types in a number), the AI is disabled until the ai on command is used or the save game is reloaded.
    This means NPCs don't move, new NPCs, drones, and patrol vessels won't spawn, turrets won't open fire, and it generally breaks the game until the player fixes it either by relogging or using the console command ai on.
    Probably won't affect multiplayer due to the AI not being affected by dialogue in multiplayer but I only tested single player.
    If you were in god mode before entering the dialogue, using a dialogue input will also remove you from god mode.
    Tested using two different dialogues that use this Input function so it's not restricted to just the example dialogue state I list below.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    1) Start a new Reforged Eden game using the workshop version of the scenario linked below.
    2) Use console command sector 'UCHN Discovery' to go to a UCH Research Vessel sector.
    3) Teleport or fly to the UCH Research Vessel in the center of this playfield.
    4) Go to the lab located directly above the main hanger.
    5) Use the item menu to give yourself a stack of Navigational Data.
    6) Use the Research Computer and select the options Navigational Data > Turn in navigational data.
    7) Type in an amount, such as 5.
    8) Observe that the walking NPCs will now be frozen until you use the ai on console command or reload the save game and no other AI will function.
