EU (but based in US)
Since the last update (19th I believe) more than one of our players has experienced an issue where animals and NPCs no longer run or track correctly. It will look like the animal is running sideways at you, but when they reach you and you swing to hit them, they arent there. The swing instead, not contacting anything. A second later the animal will suddenly appear to your right or left as if the graphical interface isn’t tracking their actual position.
Same thing happens to your followers. On screen they look like they are a few feet behind you, but when you approach and attempt to interface, nothing happens. If you walk around, you’ll find an invisible barrier that is no where near you follower, but will interact as though that space is actually occupied by your follower. This doesn’t seem to be limited to a specific type of follower, has happened on Hyenas, Tigers, Thralls, Horses, etc.
Verifying files with steam had no effect. I can reproduce this on-demand and am happy to include a video of it if you’d like.
This issue makes this game nearly unplayable for us. In the savannah, I was trampled and killed by an invisible elephant. All the while, the elephant appeared on my screen as though it was several yards to my right.
This recently developed for another player on our server, whereas some are unaffected entirely.
Any idea what the problem is and how to fix?
Server is on a dell poweredge blade, dedicated to that server, nothing else is running. All players are direct connecting to it via public or private IP.
