Addressing lack of AI awareness during and after hostile encounters

Because the player didn't move/make noise, the code that AI uses to "listen" for the player wasn't triggered.

Because the AI weren't on the same team, the alert level wasn't propagated to the other AI.

There's so much that goes on to make AI SEEM like a facsimile to real people, but there's always going to be edge cases where's there's no code to handle it.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

So is there a way to make the AI react to other AIs fighting nearby? In Bloodlines the difference is OnHearCombat and OnHearPlayer, and there is even OnHearWorld if the player uses sound as a distraction.

I'm sure there is, the original poster should open a bugtracker so a coder can take a look.

I have this one which started from a similar observation, might make them for the other details too later on.

      I was playing Skyrim, got bored fast. Got back to The Dark Mod just for one mission, played "Somewhere above the City" which is not really a great mission but still good, as in above-average.
      My biggest regret is living in this country, where there's a heat wave, I am sweating at 20c and I really wish for temperatures below 5c.

      Is there something wrong with the forums lately, or is it my browser? I've been having trouble formatting posts, and just now I couldn't format anything at all.
      I'm using Vivaldi.
      Usually I have to: select text, click bold, nothing happens, select again, click bold, then it works. 
      Same for other stuff, like creating spoilers, bullet points, links. Nothing works the first time.

      Back from a spontaneous 1-week trip to Lanzarote with wife and son. I hope beta testing has been going well...

      Even though I've been absent a long while, I still find myself dreamily wishing for the free time to do TDM mission development. When working on new research projects I'll find myself involuntarily thinking, "hee hee this could be a fun texture or readable or bit of map architecture." Or I find myself absentmindedly responding out loud to odd noises with a drunkguard-like "must've been rats!"
