We need to be able to delete actors in a group to reduce its size.

We need to be able to place way points for a group so we can direct where they 'wander'

>>> THREE <<<
We need to be able to designate NPC groups that just walk up and down halls in a floor plan
according to our way points. Always walking.


I agree with all of this. The deleting of individual npcs would also make it easier to add animations to a single neutral characters, or single enemies.
