How to manage AI in a mission?

I want to manage the AI of simobject I add in a mission (in containers). You can set up the values for the beginning, but you can't manage them afterwards. Instead, the sim changes things like the Unit_Mode and AircraftAIState itself. This doesn't work well and the AI often just doesn't move.

I have tried three ways to control the AI:

  • With an ActivateWaypointsAction. This only works if the AI is in the correct state and unitmode.
  • With a SendMessageToAIAction. This has only one working command for the baggageloader.
  • With a FlowStateAction. This has a TrafficAircraftStateName and you can link it to a container, but it doesn't seem to have any effect.
