Thanks. I made all the battles optional, or trigger able depending on the map. I also corrected a few errors in the dialog and toned down the snarky response to the skip dialog. Basically I removed the “Plot’s bore me” from the main skip dialog.

You can localize the trigger effect if you elevate a 10ft invisible wall to maybe 3-4m above or below ground. That will not block but can still trigger.
I couldn’t see the bottles at all but I did take the one that triggers the enemy engagement and lowered it a little more. It still appears to trigger correctly. I will toy with the invisible wall idea you suggested over the next few days.

Apart from a patrol or two.
I think I got it exactly as you described it now. I moved all the guards out to the perimeter and changed references in the dialog to them appropriately. I also fixed the “Research Facility” map. All the fights there are completely optional except the last enemy engagement.

Thanks again for your feedback. You’ve helped me immensely and I’ve learned a lot.
