Description

Test: AI infantry group moving to a waypoint set COMBAT/STEALTH and LIMITED/NORMAL.

Issue: Group leader tends to get too far ahead of his group. The remainder of the group close up to the leader as two sub-groups covering each other in turn. This is unnecessary and unrealistic exposure.

Expectation/solution:
1) The group leader should be assigned to and move with one of of the sub-groups, not independently.
2) The leaderless sub-group could move first with the leader's sub-group covering.
3) Sub-groups could leapfrog (move through/past) each other at bounds.

Thanks acf!

To attach a simple repro mission is always helpful. :)

Updated by acf almost 6 years ago

Attached mission 'Utes Behaviour Test' demonstrates leader behaviour using three AI groups moving over open terrain at different speeds: LIMITED, NORMAL, FULL. Behaviour is set by radio triggers: A = AWARE, B = COMBAT, C = STEALTH. For clarity, group leaders have been changed to Insurgent Boss.

In AWARE, the leader stays with the group.
In COMBAT/STEALTH the leader frequently moves forward on his own.

n.b. Issue was present in ArmA and raised on the old ArmA bugtracker (Bug 2306).
