Is anyone having any trouble with the director spawning common infected?

I am currently able to run through the map with maybe 1 or 2 infected but a lot of uncommon (boomers, hunters etc) I can force a panic which sometimes spawns a small mob to get me and i can also spawn the manually (z_spawn)

My guess would be the nav meshes, am i missing something or maybe you can see what im doing wrong here, First i set up the walkable nodes then run the 'generate incremental' to set up the navs. Then i normally select the nav which has the spawns and mark it as player start and a few around it as empty so i dont get into combat straight away. They are only very temp at the moment as my map is changing as i go.

I can't really see the problem, i start in a sealed room so LOS shouldn't be the cause also my start zone doesn't have a safe room, maybe the director spawns infected only if you have a saferoom door? Though i know this isn't the case in stock maps as i normally clear the starting zone with the door still shut.

Cheers guys.

Did you try kick starting the AI director? Try typing director_stop then director_start and then restarting the map.

I did try giving the director a push but it only spawns uncommon (very strategically i must say) I'm now thinking it may be the nav flow due to this quote i found

Quote:
If the flow is broken, the survivor bots will not be able to compute a path to the ending checkpoint, there will be no wandering Infected, Tanks, or Witches and the rescue closets won't work correctly. Basically, the game will be broken.


I do not have a finale or checkpoint yet, so i suppose they have no goal to head for, although it does spawn tanks and a few times for some reason it has spawn a panic mob entirely of witches [rolleyes]

What i will do in a while is have a look-see at this to see if it helps. Cheers welshy mate.
