They will stop following if
-they can''t see you any more
-they reach the edge of their invisible boundary
If there is another NPC near, they will randomly say something, and a random response is generated from the other character. I love this.
Most of the bad guys are very simple state machines (basically, if you are close enough, they hit). The enemy troops are more interesting. They follow you, at least a little. They seek cover, so they know their environment. They have different weapons, and will use the appropriate one. They will also not go straight at you - sometimes they go around objects and attack you from the rear. These guys are interesting.
