|Priority||normal||Severity||minor||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||0.40.11|
|Summary||0008213: Restrained animals repeatedly try to path to meeting areas, then forced prone|
|Description||Recently I noticed that the chained war dogs start to flash indefinitely without any notification in their menus (no wounds, etc). After the discussion on the related thread on the forum (http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=143130.0 [^]) it became clear that the reason is the repeatedly crouching and uncrouching without any reason.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I also uploaded the save files so you can check it out -- https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90442975/region1.zip [^]
Dogs are chained near the entrance on the Z-0 level.
This is an "odd" behavior that dates back all the way to 40d and earlier - what's happening is that they're attempting to path to a nearby meeting area, and when their chain stops them from doing so, they momentarily go prone.
It's also a considerable source of lag, especially if you have a lot of animals doing it.
|Oh, thanks a lot, man. Is there any work-around atm?|
|The work-around I use is single-tile pastures instead of chains. It works nearly as well and they do not try to path to meeting areas while in the pasture.|
Another option is to not have the meeting zone over or close to the location of the chain. At least pastures provide a secondary option.
And yeah, this has been around since forever.
