I had several "rooms" and most of the npcs spawned fine, but in one, a bunch kept disappearing after I put the ceiling on. Finally said the heck with it and got rid of those ones.
KF, I would honestly just replace that npc with an interact object and then pop-up dialogue. Less chance of bugging that way.
Well, it's a puzzle dialogue so it's going to be a pain to port to a dialog with an interact. I'll have to do it though, unless switching the hidden spider to y relative to geo fixes, but I guess it's a better choice, since I hated the "Talk to Computer" interact that I'm stuck with when using a hidden spider under a console.
