V1.2:

-Waiting companions should no longer attack each other.
-Reduced the wander radius for all companions, so that they don’t wander off too far. Especially E-DE, who loves racing around all the time.
-Disabled the eating behaviour. It’s nice for when they’re in public places. It’s not so nice when they raid the Courier’s fridge.

Ever annoyed by the fact that if you’d let your companions wait, they’d just stand there like a statue?

This very simple mod changes the ‘Wait here’ AI packages for all New Vegas companions from guard mode to sandbox mode, which allows them to interact with the environment.

Your companions will walk around, sit in chairs, lean against walls, or greet other people. And possibly some other things.

The wandering radius is limited so companions shouldn’t walk too far from the spot that you left them.

(In)compatibility
===============

This mod should be compatible with most other mods that alter companions, unless they also change the guard AI package.

The Sandbox Mode AI packages have been made for the New Vegas companions, and will not automatically work on companions added by other mods.
However I assume most companion modders will also set their guard package to sandbox mode!

Known Issues or Bugs
====================

The Sandbox behaviour replaces the normal guard/wait AI. This means that the companions will also not stand still if you want them to wait somewhere for combat related reasons. So if you plan to get tactical and leave your companions waiting for a minute keep in mind that they might start walking around.

Companions can use all kinds of furniture and ‘idle markers’. This means they can sit in chairs, lean against a wall, or hang over a counter, but they can also do strange things. Like gardening, taking over the barman’s job of cleaning plates, or other things you wouldn’t expect. There isn’t much that can be done about this, but it’s all fairly harmless (and funny sometimes).
