KF, when you changed relative to geometry, did you have your platform still set relative to zero, with the NPCs set relative to geometry? if so, what values were you setting for each? NPCs set to +1 over the platform?
Yes, platforms were still set to absolute. The value of the y may have been more than 1, since I was experimenting with all kinds of y values. I just know that I couldn't find my npc, and when I switched to y relative to geo, she was suddenly there.
I'm afraid to mess with anything.
But now that I'm playtesting my maps, stuff that showed up isn't showing up on a publish. I had a spider below a console that worked on preview and he is missing on the publish.
