Title: Pathfinding Actions
Post by: FractalCore on February 15, 2012, 04:34:17 PM
Are there any new pathfinding actions in 1.3 to make use of Unity's new AI navigation system?

Hi,

 Yes, some clean up is needed, and the fully api for the navMesh will be available right within playmaker! It should become available within the next few days hopefully.

Any advancement on this. I'd settle for something unfinished or lacking in features.

I decided to do a public beta for these actions. Grab them here:

Big thanks to Jean for diving deep into the new pathfinding system and emerging with a complete set of Playmaker actions!

Hi,

 Thanks :) I t was really fun to work on pathFinding actually!

If you have weird agent behaviors, could you report them, I have found that using exotic agent speed, acceleration and destination radius really made agents behave strangely ( to a point you'd think they should be hospitalized... :) they also seem to not like being obstructed as they move along the path...

Also, as a starting point for those you haven't found it, Unity provides samples for testing the pathfinding features, It's in the beta download page:

http://unity3d.com/unity/preview/download (http://unity3d.com/unity/preview/download)

The direct link is:
http://beta.unity3d.com/3.5-preview/NavMeshTest-3.5.0f1.zip (http://beta.unity3d.com/3.5-preview/NavMeshTest-3.5.0f1.zip)

Do not hesitate while playmaker samples are being prepared to ask question about them actions and how to use them.

Bye,

 Jean
