  1. Autonomous Movement range question

    I've put out a demo and got a few complaints about npcs blocking doorways. Is there a way to allow random movement for events but create a sector or range they can move within. Routes work well for controlled movement, but in taverns or town squares I'd prefer to let them move around randomly.

Trying to learn to read Japanese so I read my manga. I like to buy them without all the edits made during translation.
The only thing getting me through today so far is coffee. And lots of it.
