Description

When you drive a vehicle and turn off headlights, as soon you disembark headlights are instantly turned back on. Happens with all vehicles.

This is very bad in night missions where you want to go stealth and leave the car outside of e.g. a town or checkpoint and leaving for example the gunner on top of your HUMMV to cover you.

Repro:

1. Run repro mission
2. Get in the HMMV
2. Turn off headlights
3. Disembark

Observed:

AI turns lights on, no matter where they sit in the vehicle.

Expected:

Headlights stay off unless ordered otherwise. Also, AI sitting in the back or the gunner should not be able to switch on/off headlights.

It also happens when you order your crew to behavior "Stealth" (7-1).

Still valid. As of 1.54 it requires the AI in the gunner position to be in Safe Mode (7-4), before you disembark.

They don't turn it on when they are only on the back seat.
