Apocalypse 31

Non Playable Vehicles Bug

Posted (edited)

This occurred during the 5 MAR Kanium game:

 

User-manned [support] platoon had 2 vehicles that were detached and set to Computer owned

I accidentally jumped to one of the computer-owned vehicles by using the 'jump to' on the bottom right of the screen. 

Black screen - Could not see or manipulate the UI. Couldn't jump to F5 map or F8 view. Had to leave the session

Rejoined the session, but jumped right back into the same computer-owned vehicle - black screen, could not manipulate.

 Was it possible that the view was set to use the NVGs after it got to bright to use them?

Interesting point. 

 

Normally, players aren't allowed to jump into computer-controlled units (outside editor)

 

The biggest oddity was that I was unable to jump to F5/F8 views. I was stuck in the vehicle (black screen)

Agreed, I'm surprised that you could even click on them.

Worth mentioning: I used the icons at the bottom of the screen and the Jump to this unit.

Maybe because they were part of a "composite" platoon (part Computer owned, part Player owned)?

Thanks for the report. I believe this is the same thing that MAJ Fubar reported some time ago IIRC. This additional info helps though. B|
