Was this behavior something that ended up getting axed as a result of all the pod activation changes?

If they do - the issue is not related to my fix then. On the other hand I think that "hunting last lurker" was always an issue on larger maps - wasn't it?

Hunting the last pod down could be an issue on some of the big maps, but it was definitely a lot faster in LW 1.0 when the command pod was dead. On one landed abductor in Rebalance v1.18.9 I had two unactivated pods that sat indefinitely at the far edge of the map after every other alien was dead.

Here is a save from the mission: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1xbKlzz9_fCxNdSMakousV3f0THHXjd3i
szmind wrote: So - I think it is my debugger's fault (hmm, in that case 'bugger' would be more suitable :) ). 80% sure it does prevent pods from moving. I have implemented a fix. Try it out with your save. I have currently pure LW installed cause I am working with AzXeus on larger project to get rid of pseudo code at all :)
Fix is here - just overwrite the LWDebugger.u in CookedPCConsole with this one. Pods should get moving with "double move" still prevented.
