PC companions being teleported to other PCs in different areas.

Havent reported this, but its been an issue for a long while...

Basically when in a party, one PCs henchman/followers will be spontaneously teleported to another party members location. This is 100%, I believe, when another party member zones in to a different area. The fix is for the original PC to zone in somewhere, and the followers come back.

No idea why its happening...

As just about everyone who parties with me knows, Nyphenne has a nasty habit for doing that too. For instance, I was partying with a few people, and one of them said "A strange little dragon keeps following me...", and when I looked around, Nyphenne was no where in sight. Razz (He's an idiot)

I haven't found a cause in any scripts. I think this is one to blame on some hard-coded engine quirk. Probably something along the lines of;

PC A just move to another zone. Let's check the party list so it can be updated.
- - Oh, look. A henchman in the party. Better move it to go with the PC.

My guess is it's a legacy of the game's original intent as a single-player game. Henchmen area transitioning during multiplayer sessions was probably something overlooked in all the various patches over the years.

Does it happen with every transition? Or just when zoning out of the same area the henchman and his/her "owner" are currently in?

I seem to recall it happening even when my PC and a party-mate were in different areas... Not 100% on that...

Definitely a game engine issue, rather than a scripting/module issue. Unfortunately, not something I have any control over as a builder.

Moving topic to "long term storage"...
