View Full Version : Flocking avoid mesh does nothing

Hi there,

I'm trying to have the flock arrive at an arrive goal which looks perfect, except I want it to avoid a mesh object on the way.
It appears as though the avoid mesh feature doesn't work at all!! It goes right through everytime
What am I doing wrong???

Try increasing the strength - like 10 times ...

Thanks, we'll look into this.

I can confirm. Flocking seems fairly broken in LW11.6 on the mac. Lots of bugs, including this one.

Here's my test scene; it's a bit simpler, a default generator and default goal with a mesh object in between. Same deal, flock completely ignores the avoid mesh, even with the strength turned up to lots.

Just in case you or any others hit the same problem, I raised a Fogbugz report (https://fogbugz.newtek.com/default.asp?62830_2q2l0adfa65qeecf) regarding the fact that it is impossible to prevent a flock from penetrating the volume defined by the mesh of a Director Type = Arrive. Further details in the above report.
