Imp prison prioritizing

Imps seem to prioritize bringing prisoners to the first prison built, rather than the closest one.

Hey zimberzimber,


I'll have a look into this and see if our AI guy can work out why this is happening.

I'm failing to reproduce this issue, could you link a save file where this is happening?

I don't have a save game file, but I'll try recreating it on the map I've noticed it.

Managed to reproduce it here

First prison was the one the inquisitor is in now

Second was the one above it


EDIT: Log File
Note: II had another bug occur in that game after I saved the game, and its probably recorded in the log file. I posted it as a separate issue.

I still can't produce this. Please record a video of the issue happening so I can see exactly what you are doing to cause this

Here's a video, and a small observation that might be the cause.

The prison to which the prisoners were dragged to was closer to the corpse if the imps were to go in a straight line, ignoring walls/lava/etc, but the other prison is closer only if you take path finding into account.

I don't know if this behavior applies to other rooms too. (Like crypts, treasuries, searching for piglets to bring into the kettle, etc...)

Ah, yes that makes sense. We probably are doing a cheap range check rather than a pathing based one as it is much lighter computationally. I will need a timestamp to see it in action ;)

30:10 - Matriarch dies, then dragged to first prison (furthest after path finding)

31:25 - Huntress dies, then dragged to third prison (closest)

33:37 - Warden dies, then dragged to first prison


Unrelated question -

Cultists ignoring enemies when dropped (like in 11:15 and 24:15) is a known issue, or should I create a ticket for that as well?

That's because it's payday and you didn't rally them, so they just went and grabbed gold.


Looks like it does a check on pure proximity, with your setup that doesn't make much sense, but usually it's fine, I'll mention it to the developers and see if there's a cheap way to process it based on pathing proximity

That didn't happen with the Gnarlings though
