[Gameplay] - [Gameplay] Hologram projector does not provide cover

Recommended Posts

Bug Submission:

Category: Gameplay
Platform: PC
Issue Title: Hologram projector does not provide cover
Issue Description: As shown in the screenshot, my agent is next to a hologram projector. The guard spots her even though she should be under side cover (and is actually in a spot that is colored purple that would indicate is hidden from the guard).
Steps to Reproduce: Not sure how to reproduce this. I haven't had any issues using the projector before. I should note that the person that created the hologram was another agent, so maybe the game only gave her cover from the cart?

I've attached an image of the initial placement of the hologram (shown in picture 2).

Side cover won't help when they face you directly- for that space to be considered hidden, he would need to look at it diagonal from you (usually resulting in being noticed and investigated.) Side cover like that is helpful if their path goes past you, but if they stop next to or facing you, you're caught.

There's no way that spot should be spotted. Look at the ground coloring. Nika is in a purple square, which would be designated for spots that are "hidden" from the guard. Are you perhaps thinking I'm talking about Internationale? It was Nika who was spotted in the first image. My other agents are  safely around the corner.

Having just looked into it, I don't think the Hologram Projector is correctly bestowing cover to units adjacent to it when it is spawned.  That is, if you throw the projector right next to your unit, your unit is not in fact in cover until he moves away and back next to the emitter.  Fixing this now.
