  • A Zeus's Guide To LAMBS Danger FSM





    The purpose of this guide is to provide a comprehensive explanation of the orders, modules and CBA settings available under LAMBS_Danger in addition to the plethora of changes made to overall AI behaviour under its effects.




    The changes/additions made by LAMBS can be summarized by the following.

    Prior to the introduction of LAMBS the standard AI approach to the detection/reaction to danger followed the following decision making process.


    Following the introduction of LAMBS this system has been significantly overhauled to include differing behaviours and options for AI to choose from when presented with a threat.


    The affects on infantry alone can be seen in greater detail here.

    In summary these changes/additions can be seen in the following list.


        AI will move inside buildings.
        Perform suppressive fire (Vehicles will dismantle buildings).
        React, even when exact enemy position is unknown.
        React by hiding in the presence of powerful vehicles when without equipment to deal with it.
        Check dead bodies (Rearms if possible).
        Tanks will react by rotating towards threats.
        Improved civilian reactions, hiding in buildings and checking dead bodies.
        Panic, with special effects.


        Dynamic Artillery system.
        Custom waypoints for specific AI behaviour.

       The Core Functionality of Lambs is as well described in the following video by one of its developers.





    In terms of In game additions Lambs adds a number of new options for Zeuses in terms of Orders some of which are still in the experimental stage.
