3. There are certain walls that are one-way. Hop into Preview and view it from the enemy NPC's side. If it's one-way, then enemies will be able to see / shoot you through it. (You can counter this by dropping another version of the one-way wall and rotating it by 180 degrees.)

If enemies fire at you through walls that are solid from both sides, then please make sure to mention which map it's on, what wall piece is being used, etc.

Thanks!
I noticed this when I was playing The.Grand.Nagus' mission on Tribble specifically. He used the Azura map and the Romulans on the map were shooting through the walls of the first side chamber and through the walls along the hallway at me and my BOff's. Since this was a published mission I have to say that its not restricted to preview mode.

Why do one-way walls even exist in the UGC?

Except we've been encountering this in published missions as well. The pathing appears to be virtually identical (i.e. non-existent). I would suspect this is tied into the issue that's causing the NPC wander/idle/etc. animations to not get set up either, but obviously I could be wrong on that.

To save you computer from having to draw things which the player never sees.
