Description

Hi,

there is no way to set the AI back to normal watching condition.
When Scan Horizon is selected you can only set AI to watch fixed direction or back to Scan Horizon.

Example you can't set AI in gunner position of a vehicle back to watching the way you drive.


Obs:
Not able to turn off Scan Horizon on AI in vehicles.

Expe:
AI Gunner will watch the direction of the player or tank is driving.

Repro:
  1. In a vehicle with AI as gunner.
  2. Set gunner to Scan Horizon, pressing 3-7.
  3. Selecting AI, Pressing 2-1 (No Target)
  4. Selecting AI, Pressing 3-6 (Disengage)

What about to tell them to disengage?
I am pretty sure there is a way to do this.

No target (2-1) works for sure.
More transparent solution couldn't hurt though.

I could not turn off Scan Horizon in multiplayer with Beta OA_Build_72107 when in a vehicle.
Tryed No target (2-1)
And disengage.

Had to take them out and No target (2-1), then mount them again.

its the same for both ArmA II and OA for me

The only way I have found to successfully to cancel “Scan Horizon” or “watch direction” commands to AI gunners in in armed vehicles is to order them to dismount then issue the “No target” command then order them to remount the vehicle.

Even if the “No target” command is issued prior to them to dismounting they will continue to “Scan Horizon” or “watch direction” wile outside the vehicle until the “No target” command is issued agene with them outside.

The “disengage” command seams to have no function either inside or outside a vehicle with respect to AI having been commanded to “Scan Horizon” or “watch direction”

The above is extremely frustrating if you’re a vehicle “commander” constantly having to move your view to counter the AI’s perpetual “Scan Horizon” if you are not in a position to allow them to dismount to issue the “No Target” order then have them remount.
