Best pathfinding ever

Just for kicks I loaded up a map to really put the new pathfinding system to the test. I spawned 600 (not a typo) UEF Assault Bots and gave them all a move order. To my surprise, they quickly grouped up into a nice square and started heading towards their destination. After reaching their destination, I gave them another move order to the left. The quickly reformed their group and started moving.

As a real test I spawned a Fatboy and made the 600 units and the Fatboy move towards each other. The Fatboy went right through the platoon without a problem and the units regrouped on the other side and continued moving.

Was amazing to see. Try that in FA.

This is truly wonderful news. Great job guys, ground-breaking stuff!

What sucks is I am stuck with FA. I absolutely hate my units entering an enemy base 1 by 1. The games last longer than they need to because of this flaw.

you realise Triz that there is such a thing as formation move, right?
