Using Auto Disable for Agents

This topic references tools and features that are legacy. If you want to use legacy tools in Lumberyard Editor, disable the CryEntity Removal gem using the Project Configurator or the command line. To learn more about legacy features, see the Amazon Lumberyard Legacy Reference.

You can save processor time by not updating distant AI agents. To control this on a global and on a per-agent basis, enable the AutoDisable property.

  1. In the Rollup Bar, on the Objects tab, click Entity and select your asset.

  2. Under Entity Properties2, select the AutoDisable check box.

  2. Under Flow Graphs, select your asset.

  3. Right-click anywhere in the graph and then click Add Node, AI, AutoDisable.

  4. In the AI:AutoDisable node, click ON to enable AutoDisable.
