Suggestion: aiming and aiming speed of AI

Recommended Posts

One of the comments regarding the AI spawned with drones has been that their difficulty is quite high. In looking through the code today it appears that all skill settings are set to 0.6. In my experience this creates AI that rarely miss. While the drones add an element of surprise and excitement, I think their appeal would be greater if they were less deadly, or were spawned with a range of difficulties. Suggestions include reducing aiming skill to 0.1-0.2, which seems to work well in several AI addons, and to have a user-configurable skill tree for these AI. Keep up the good work,

Whenever I miss the chance to kill a drone (as sometimes it instantly calls for AI with no time to react) and it spawns AI soldiers I just do a relog. Do not bother anymore. Call me a pussy but I'd rather fight against 10 real people than those godlike soldiers.

We just try to kill but thats only when my friend and me are inside of a building , posting by the open door and only shoot if we know where they are

Out inthe open its a quick dash to any object to hide behind

But when at the spawn-traders u cant shoot the drone and if u try to go for it its a 101% confirmed death by AI ( i suspect they cheat :p )

So we do our thing and then idd logout  to return 5-10 min later

A bit related, I found a spot in central spawn were you lose god mode (even though you are technically inside the safe zone). It is further inside the pier behind last traders back at that cross section. That's how I died a couple of times to drone soldier AI because I thought I was invulnerable ;D But if you manage to lure the drone above that spot, you can shoot it, and of course, same with AI soldiers.

      G'day All,
      Would it be probable in future updates to have an option to set what type and quantity of Antagonists spawned via a drone when triggered by the player.
       
      cheers

      Players are reporting that Drones are being spawned despite the AntagonistSpawnIndex for them being set to 0. I am not sure whether they are triggered by gun fire or looting. Is it possible that the new Nuisance parameter overrides the setting in the configs ?

      1. My own private server with no modifications
       
      2. 1.4.4.130654 - 0.3.0.3
       
      3. When I noticed a drone above me I ran back to the trader spawn safe-zone. I hid for nearly an hour, it did not leave nor seem to ever run out of fuel. So I decided to take pot shots at it. After expending 1 clip I stopped and just kept hovering there. It did not majorly react to me firing at it or moving into sight for small ammounts of time.
       
      So I took a steady aim and another two clips. Doing every possibly thing I could to hit it. Then I realised I must have hit it but its just not dieing.
      Therefore as an admin I took it upon myself to spawn another 6 clips and keep shooting. It did not die, a little while later another drone showed up. Same results with that one.
       
      After a while I decided to see if they were actualy still functional... I stood in plain view, they spawned two squads. I decided to log off then and come here to report this bug because an invincible drone spawning and bunch of soldiers is byond acceptable.
       
      4. Drone keeps respawning, I have carried this out a good 10 times now shooting from the spawn. I'm certain that it is 100% repeatable on my default unmoddified server. To be certain before I post this I will see if I can spawn a target lock rpg and try to blow it up. If it survives that, I think its self-explainatory.
       
      I am assuming the "spawn trader city areas" "east" "west" and "central" are in some way "protected" towards PK and vehicular damage or somehow by default prevent players shots from actualy doing damage. Or something along those lines. But I am certain the "safety" is not supposed to make the antagonists "AI drones" "AI bandits" invincible aswell. Something must be done to eighter effectively prevent antagonists from entering safe locations or some sort of exeption must be made to allow their demise to occur.
       
      I would at current not go as far to call those area's "safe" zones because I have been forced onto the pier in cental by a sapper entering the camp before. And now invincible AI drones that for all I know continualy keep spawning new bandits.
       
      PS. Just relogged, drove to the nearest city with my motorbike and waited for the drone to spawn and apear again fired one shot with the same rifle. Succesfully destroyed the drone. I am positive it was immune to my gunfire above the tradercity.
