Multiple dogs collecting same harvest

Postby xAncalagonx » June 22nd, 2016, 5:32 am

There is an issue with the retrievers when you have more than one retriever operating in the same area.

I've noticed this several times when goose and duck hunting.

We'll shoot down a bunch of birds, then we send the dogs out to retrieve.

Sometimes two dogs will run for the same harvest, and this causes a weird glitch with how they carry the bird back.

Furthermore, sometimes a dog will have picked up a harvest and be on the way to bring it back, and then another dog will run in and basically, through some really glitchy animations, take the harvest from the other dog.

There needs to be a function in the retrieving where it detects if a dog is heading for a harvest and then prevents other dogs from going for the same bird. This would prevent dogs glitching to collect same harvest, or glitches due to one dog collecting what another is already carrying it.

While it's rather silly to watch it does get frustrating in the long run.

I have noticed this as well.

In addition, my retriever will run right up to my kill, run over it and return empty mouthed and confused. Repeatedly, both with and without another dog in the field.
