There are concepts called 'pathing' and 'beaconing' that you will see bandied about occasionally. These have to do with NPC interactions with the environment. In the Foundry, all of that, what we get of it at any rate, gets put into the map at time of publish. After which NPC will act a little better, but its still not as good as a built from scratch Cryptic map with the laid down pathing.

I dont know if we are ever going to get any improvements to this sadly, because lord knows, it gets worse if you create an entirely custom environment raised about ground level, all the pathing rules seem to get thrown out the windows then
