I'm stumped. Maybe of your guys' beautiful brains can help me out.
What I'm trying to achieve: a layout that keeps playing, even while you (the player) moves on to a new layout.
For instance, I have Layout 1 -- a livened, animated city where little NPC dudes walk around freely, cars pass by, etc.. And then I have Layout 2 -- a scene for the player's home.
When the player leaves Layout 1, I want the NPC characters to keep walking around, so that when the player reenters the scene, it'll be as if time has passed by.
More simply put:] Let's assume NPC1 is on a path from point A to point B. If you leave the layout, wait 5 minutes, then reenter the layout, I want NPC 1 to have arrived at point B.
