Summary0005272: Units can take highly inefficient path
DescriptionSometimes units take a very inefficient path. I am not sure about the exact cause, but there's been buildings and cliffs between the unit and its destination.

The screenshot 726 attached shows a unit called "Warrior" that is selected and located on the left edge of the screen. It just exited the factory that is also located near left edge (the one with "ETA: 0:12" above it). The red lines with arrows show very roughly which path this unit takes. Other Warriors built before it have taken the same path.

This red path seems very inefficient compared to the blueish lines I have drawn on the screenshot.

I have attached another screenshot that shows a different pathing problem in the same game. In it a Warrior took a more efficient path into the general direction of its move command. However, before arriving the unit got "pathing-stuck" as it kept running into this cliff.

I can confirm. It doesn't happen that often, but it does happen.

Adding this helped, but it didn't solve the issue entirely:
--Fix for bad movement in 102
        local md = uDef.moveDef
        if (md.type ~= nil) then -- all non-flying units
            Spring.MoveCtrl.SetGroundMoveTypeData(uID, "turnAccel", uDef.turnRate)

Forb this is an entirely different issue


Code_Man (reporter)

In s44, on 1944_titan when infantry are ordered to go near the inside edges on the hills they often tend to move back and forth, its extremely annoying.

0005411 was probably a duplicate of this, fixed upstream.
