Bot's are despawning to slow when night starts



  "DataPrefix": "default",
  "Global": {
    "DayStartHour": 8,
    "NightStartHour": 20,
    "NPCs_Attack_BotSpawn": false,
    "HTNs_Attack_BotSpawn": false,
    "BotSpawn_Attacks_NPCs": false,
    "APC_Safe": true,
    "Turret_Safe": false,
    "Animal_Safe": true,
    "Supply_Enabled": false,
    "Remove_BackPacks_Percent": 100,
    "Remove_KeyCard": true,
    "Ignore_HumanNPC": true,
    "Ignore_HTN": true,
    "Ignore_Sleepers": true,
    "Pve_Safe": false,
    "Max_Chute_Wind_Speed": 100,
    "Max_Chute_Fall_Speed": 100

This is my config. I guess NightStartHour there for bot's being despawned at that time? Well, they are despawned, but one hour later. What is the point in this? Like, if I want them to be despawned in 20, I need to set NightStartHour option to 19 (-1 hour)? Tested and it seems to work, so what is the purpose of this delay?

There's a check for population/time of day every 10 seconds and npcs are killed off one at a time.
That means if you have 5 npcs for day and 1 for night and night time is 20 hours, it might be 20:40 before you reach population of 1.


The reason for this is just so multiple npcs don't suddenly vanish all at once.

Please, don't get me wrong, I'm not here to complain/be rude, or something, I just can't get the logic in this one. Isn't prediction is desired or even has a high priority in configuration of the server? If I set the time of night, what I'm trying to achieve? I guess despawn of bots. So why shouldn't they just vanish all at once, so I could say to players "bot's go to sleep at 20:00 feel safe after that time". With this strange logic (from point of view of predicion) I can't predict nothing and I can only say to players "I guess between 20:00 and 21:00 they should go to sleep" and feels like I can't control settings like I need to. Can you, please, add an option, like "spawn/despawn all bots the same time" or "number of spawn/despawn bots at a time (tick)" or something?
And of course thanks for your hard work and free acces to those great plugins!

It doesn't matter much to me whether they despawn gradually or all at once.
I just thought gradual would have been preferred by most so that a large chunk of population doesn't suddenly vanish to any players who happen to be in the area.

I'll add a global option for instant despawn in the next update.
