the boss) ill build models for it that way if ya want

Ok, so you would like the miners to follow paths that make more sense in a
mining sense. Like standing next to walls or pacing around to different
mining spots right? You would also like it so when they get close enough to
the player, say 5 distance, they start chasing him. Then after some set
amount of time, say 2 seconds, they get tired and go back to where they
started and continue their original pathing.

For this you would like
Enemies to chase when close
Enemies to stop chasing after a while
Less enemies

Sound right?
