Move to behavior not persistent

To me persistent means something will keep trying no matter what. So when an actor with ''move to'' such and such a position is stopped because it also has a collide behavior and it collided with another actor that is in its way, and it just floats away rotating wildly, something seems wrong with that connotation. :smile:
An example:
Actor 1:
move to 700,700.
Collide with actor 2.
Actor 2 is in the way. Actor 1 hits actor 2 and both go flying. Would not actor 1 keep trying to get to 700,700? Assume actor 2 was immovable. Then actor 1 should continually keep pressing against actor 2. Seems like an action attribute...? :smile:
P.S. I guess physics can stop persistent attributes?

    @Twayne2

    Physics seems to override it, and a lot of other things too. Bounciness is the cause most likely. If you turn it off ( to 0) on the actors, it will just keep trying to go to that spot properly.

    A workaround with physics still enabled would be a rule:

    When all of the following are happening:
    Actor overlaps or collides with Actor2
    
    Do: 
    (leave this blank)
    
    Else:
    Move to 700,700
    

    That way when it isn't colliding it will retrigger the move to behaviour.

    There might be other solutions too, but I didn't dig too deep.

    Well at least it helps keep the forums a little more active: a common person to fight against. Lol. :wink: :smile:
