Flag: Aggressive

Values: Boolean values: yes or no, true or false, 1 or 0
Applicable to: TeamTypes


Aggressive entry in TeamTypes pertains to initiating an attack when a threat posing enemy comes in range. Suicide entry in TeamTypes pertains to response to an attack. These can be set to yes/no. Depending on the current script action being executed and the combination of these two entries, the behavior differs. For some script actions, these two flags don't have any relevance. Variation are seen in the script actions where movement is involved. Typically, attack script actions are not affected by Aggressive entry and the team does not initiate attack while on the move to its target when the threat-posing enemy comes in range. In move script actions, Aggressive=yes favors attacking when the threat-posing enemy comes in range which results in the team losing its current script action, and when the team resumes it executes the next script action in its script. Suicide=yes tries to suppress the retaliation when attacked in favor of completing the current script action.
