"- Improved companion/henchmen AI "

"- Improved companion/henchmen AI and gave them the ability to move ahead (using the "Attack" command.)"

One of my favorite improvements I've seen in a long time!

Mostly effects factions with controllable NPCs, however current usages I've found are

-Allows for significantly easier placement of Guards, no more outskirts shuffle (or at least, less of it)

-Once moving through a door, you can order them to move forward, preventing either you or the NPC from being trapped behind it

-For Pack oxen, will make crossing bridges significantly easier

-Obvious RP benefits of scouting, formations, etc.

-If you're patient enough you can even have them walk along side you! -Just need to click attack nearest every 5 seconds or so.

Glad you liked it!

Another improvement is that the AI should be much better at protecting you when using the Guard Me command.
