Adding NPCs to maps
Added to hammer are 2 test NPC entities, these should work on any map however their functionality is limited. To ensure correct operation with your map, i have created a checklist of things that need to be done.
- Your map needs to be compiled with a version of empires later than 2.15.3.
- Your map needs a navigation mesh created, see https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Navigation_Meshes
