'Closest' drop off.


Recommended Posts

In my experience, quite often when draining a resource with a storehouse relatively nearby, the gatherers still elect to go to a different drop point, that is closer by line-of-flight but ends up being longer because of the route actually needed to get there (e.g. when a gate is locked, a different gate has to be used). It would be neat if it took into account actual-path in addition to closest drop-off location.

If I am totally barking up the wrong tree or there is already a thread for it, I do apologize ahead of time. Thank you.

/E.

@temple was annoyed by that behavior too and had uploaded multiple patches. I'm not sure if there was one for computing the actual path rather than the line-of-sight one however. That could consume quite some performance as our bottleneck is the pathfinder currently.

Haha, I must admit you got me there! I felt the urge to complain about something and this seemed like the perfect chance. But hey, at least I finally got around to make an account...:P
