This location remains assigned to the occupant even if they temporarily depart, unless a behavior action triggers them to Abandon the target. Targets are an excellent choice for modeling seating for entertainment venues such as stadiums, auditoriums, or theaters as well as waiting lobbies for medical, commercial, or transit locations. Read More...
