[bug] Followers and Pets falling/ghosting through terrain

Game mode: Single-player
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: [Enter one of the following: PvP | PvE-Conflict | PvE]
Region: [Please enter your server region]

Exiled Lands. I have a pair of bases in Single Player. One on the island in the river at I5. The other on a plateau at B7.
On the river base, I built up on the cliffs and rock bridge overlooking the river. I captured one of the salamander and had him guarding. on returning to base he wasn’t anywhere to be seen. using the followers menu, I saw he was still at my base. Hopping into admin and using ghost mode, I found him below the base, inside one of the undermesh formations.
On the base overlooking Sepermaru, I had a named archer on guard, only for the same thing to happen to her. she disappeared yet was still on guard at the base according to the menu. I had to rescue her, loosing gear, as i couldn’t find her in the mesh.

The salamander was set to guard on the open ground. The archer was on a foundation.

if/when it happens again, I will try to capture a video.

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. set follower/pet to guard
  2. return to game later to find some guards missing
  3. wonder if this is related to followers sinking into foundations while following the player

The issue happened again on my river camp when I returned to the base in the same play session. So, the issue doesn’t appear to require relaunching the game or restarting the server… merely reloading the instance where the followers are on guard. Here is a video I shot where i when into Ghost mode to retrieve my greater salamander.

I moved out onto the open ground where I had set the salamander to guard, then entered ghost mode to find him. After a short bit of diving around, I saw him and pulled him back to the surface. When I placed him down again, he immediately sank partially into the terrain. So, I repositioned him to some foundations near my Zath shrine. Still a little wobbly, but at least it stayed level instead of looking like a sinking ship.

I AM running mods, as is apparent in the video: Conan_ Exiles 2021-05-13 18-13-09 Ghosting Pet on Vimeo

I know, this happen still again. Followers fall trough mesh, on restart, or when you leave renderdistance and come back.
They can even go far down near the bottom of the map. Can also happen when player dies.
I tested it with several saves, without any mods, and it can still happen.
Placing them on foundations can help, but not fully. Only exeption i found are treeplateforms. :woman_shrugging:

This has been reported several times now. There different posts trough the forum.

Hey @IPL_Victim

We’re aware of this issue as it’s been causing some frustration lately. We’ve fixed it internally and it’s being tested internally to see if we can release it in the next patch.
Thanks for the feedback.
