I am needing a lot of help on setting up my zombies ai,
does anyone have an example or a graph you could lend me for me to see basic ai setup to where he would follow and attack me and me attack him??

Thank You!

Are you working with Unity pro or indie,
If you have pro you can look into the NAV Mesh option which places enemies on paths which they can walk along. etc

Cheers

Rob

Hi,

NAV Mesh works with Indie too :) with some minor limitations.

well i'm brand new to all of this, do you know where I can find a simple graph or something to get it to move without scripts?

by graph I mean by like a picture on how to set up an easy ai system to get my zombie to attack me and me attack him?

thanks!

I can suggest to watch some tutorials on youtube by Hutong Games.
If you haven't already?

For AI here:

Was very helpful for me :)

EDIT:
actually I would suggest to watch them all those Hutong tutorials :D
Went through them and started to get used to PM how it acts etc. and sometimes in tutorials which you think isn't for your topic can find great things in it :)
