Details[edit | edit source]

  • If the given player name isn't nearby or doesn't exist, and exactMatch isn't set, FollowByName picks the closest match from characters nearby.
  • It is not possible to stop following someone from a script. The player needs to take action (move, jump, sit, whatever). See the discussion page for FollowUnit().
