Animal summons stay closer

Recommended Posts

I have noticed that animal summons wander off a long way, while monsters stay at the summoners side. May i suggest that the distance animals wander be minimized. Happy Summoning.

 

SNOS :(

Just as a note, Sslessars also wander.

 

I actually consider it an advantage that they wander, I often send Sslessars that I made from stones off to kill animals so that I can gather their bags.

 

Obviously they are easier to lose if they wander, but I am just pointing out one upside.

Is it only certain creatures? Because I notice when I summon skellies or gargs they make a formation around me and stay very close.

 

While when a summon, say, a tiger or bear from a stone, they wonder every which way.

EDIT: Or when I summon polar bears, I think they wonder. I'll have to check up on that.

This has always happened, used to be able to clear out kf by summoning bears and letting them go over the whole map by emselves :brooding:

lol, nice catch Temp, however I was responding to Spleen's post.

 

Sslessar's is from a stone and a monster, so what I meant was is there a difference between a stone summon and a regular summon.

 

(but on my edited part, your right, I read Snosraps post wrong >.<)

I think that has to do a lot with the summon's "intelligence". Gargs, skellies, orcs, goblins all line up, and if you think of it in the role playing sence, can have critical thinking skills. Animals, beasts and so on, yeah, they don't care much for order, just stay in your general area, but wander around. Not sure if that's what's up here, but makes sence.

How about commands that affect this feature....

 

#summon_close --- this is what monsters do today

#summon_mid --- this would be new maybe

#cummon_far --- this is what the bears and stuff do today

 

This would affect all summons until changed. Just an idea.

 

Happy Summoning,

It could be already under development
Based on the summoning control test on the test server the other day, controls are implemented, but they do NOT address the above issue (keeping summons close to you).

Yeah, forever ago but I am a perfectionist :pickaxe:

 

Sslessar can be from stones OR from normal summoning. Both wander. :devlish:
