Quick Question: Can you change alien view cone angles?

Recommended Posts

I tried searching the forums but I couldn't find anything on it. Maybe I was using the wrong search terms.

Anyways, is there a way to set the view cone for each individual alien type? I know you can set each of the aliens' sight ranges in aiprops.xml, but I don't see any mention of the view cone angles other than the "general" LOSAngle tag in config.xml. I'd like to experiment with aliens that have vastly varying view ranges and FOVs myself.

Unless, aliens don't actually use the view cone mechanic and always have 360 degree vision? It would be a bummer if that is true.

I've wanted to do that myself, but I can't find it anywhere. All aliens are set to the general view angle.

I see. Looks like this might cross into the realm of Suggestions, because that's a pretty big thing to be missing from alien variety. Lots of things you could buff on Androns while shackling them with tunnel vision, and the opposite for Sebillians too. Anyway thanks for the heads up that they use the general view angle.
