In Response To: in m1 I saw a blue bob kill a pfhor (Still Thinking)

: I've actually seen it several times. The one time that I remember well was
: when I shot a miner fighter a few times when it walked into a doorway and
: a security bob ran up to it and the fighter then died. There was no one
: behind it.

Check the physics model.

In the standard one all the BOBs *do* have attacks listed (and, as I recall, the security model, as which physics model editors do list the blue jumpsuit, though I'm not sure if that's a result of anything actually in the in the physics file itself, has a fairly potent one as compared with other civilians), they're attack range is just set to 0.

Based on the description of this showing up only in the Demo, my guess is that not all the kinks of the clipping code were worked out then and it was possible for a BOB to get close enough to do damage (the cylinders of the two sprites would have to overlap). BOBs definitely do attempt to attack, even in the released game. (Watch them turn and gesture at a Pfhor chasing them some time. Doesn't last long, but it does happen, and it matches what the shapes file lists as their attack posture.)
