  • Closing, as this is by design. The Pathfinding behavior will report 'path not found' if you send it in to an enclosed area (as in, an open space surrounded by obstacles). If you tell it to move on top of an obstacle, it will find the nearest open space and move there instead. That's all that is happening here.
