PathFollower doesnt fully finish the route

Looks like PathFollower doesnt fully finish the final step at the end of the route, leaving it at the previous tick's interpolation position and angle.

I fixed this in a local override for my project, but thought the dev team should be made aware.

My fix:
Code: Select allExpand view
if (Time > 1.) {
   Time -= 1.;
   bJustStepped = true;
   PrevNode = CurrNode;
   CurrNode = CurrNode.Next;
   if (CurrNode != null)
   if (CurrNode == null || CurrNode.Next == null || (Options & MP_LINEAR) == 0 && CurrNode.Next.Next == null) {
      //Do final interpolation to bring follower to its true end
      Time = 1.;
      CurrNode = PrevNode;
      CurrNode = null;

Also, you can be dead certain that changing this after more than 15 years will break older maps.
