Please whatever you did, revert it. They are unable to do anything anymore. When i got the game back when it came out to the public they worked so good, just so they could get noticably worse with every update. why? Can they even do anything new? It is genuinely disappointing to get back to the game just to find out that i can't play it alone anymore.

Maybe at least give me an option to turn them off.

ok we shall revert.

but in all seriousness, things get worse before they get better, that's game development.

basically the suspect ai are now too smart for the swat ai to handle. we've given them new behaviors that swat don't know how to respond well to. we didn't have the time to work on them for the adam update as it was a mountain of a task to complete. we in fact didn't touch the swat ai code, and it shows. they didn't get dumber per se, but the difference in intelligence relative to the updated suspects are now too great that swat appears to be dumber than they were before when we never updated their behavior (aside from bug fixes, etc.)

in our playthroughs, swat were decently holding up against suspects, and thats all that mattered for the adam update, until we get around to improving them

Also what do you mean by this?

They are unable to do anything anymore

this is untrue. but i've also seen some mods actually break them and that were not updated to be compatible with the adam update or just even problematic all together
