|Summary||0006206: 104.0.1-1752-g139d66b develop Units move towards too-distant path waypoints|
|Description||I have some units that skip nearby path waypoints to move towards distant points in bad situations. This causes them to try to path over a steep cliff.|
|Additional Information||Game: https://github.com/GoogleFrog/SpringCraft/commit/67ab51434ebb267a830a9906bc93e6bbf2c3f04b|

|Checked infolog.txt for Errors||Yes|
The issued goes away with avoidMobilesOnPath = false. When units are set to avoid mobiles they change their heading, which possibly makes this check fail more often: https://github.com/spring/spring/blob/develop/rts/Sim/MoveTypes/GroundMoveType.cpp#L1571
My current theory is that there is a typo on this line, that the 'and' should be an 'or': https://github.com/spring/spring/blob/develop/rts/Sim/MoveTypes/GroundMoveType.cpp#L1594
Changing the 'and' to an 'or' seems to resolve the issue without breaking the intended behaviour. I assume that the intended behaviour is for units to skip waypoints along unobstructed terrain without skipping over corners they they need to take.
|The issue also occurs in ZK with 104.0.1-1156-gb72a9cc maintenance. I think it is a bit harder to notice on units with low turn rates.|
Does not smell like a typo: if the range-test fails but skipping the waypoint is still allowed (e.g. because cwp happens to be within SQUARE_SIZE elmos of pos), CanSetNextWayPoint should not return false.
I may create a branch for this if you want to run ZK on it.
In that case perhaps the required check is:
!((pos - cwp).SqLength() <= Square(SQUARE_SIZE)) && (!rangeTest || !(pos - cwp).dot(flatFrontDir) < 0.0f)
Nobody has noticed this so far so I don't see the need to proliferate the branches.
