    Note on one of the animation bugs: I was having an issue with the sit-chair animation on one NPC in one mission (Valin on bridge in Apex.) I tried other sitting animations (assuming that one specific animation was broken, like some of those we talked about) but nothing worked (even though those worked on other maps.) So I moved the NPC forward a bit and low and behold I got it to sit down.

    If authors are having trouble with sit animations specifically, try tweaking location, orientation, and other physical parameters. The bug (assuming it's still around after the last update, I worked on this before downtime) may be a bit more complicated than "it doesn't work anymore."

    It might be related to that thing I observed with jumping. if center point of the NPCs feet is in mid-air that might be an issue.

    Possibly but this problem only started with the AOY update (by that time Apex had been published for a little while) and I fixed the issue by moving the NPC closer to the edge of its seat. Could have been "catching" on the arm rests. I'm keeping my eye open for any other instances of this happening in the Foundry.

    'Low prop challenge' No more than 50-100 props per map?

    a low prop challenge sounds amusing, but I'm not sure what sort of prize would be appropriate.
