I want the player to know where a character is going for a stealth prototype I'm working on.

Hi,

 yes, it's possible, you should use the action NavMeshCalculatePath which returns a list of vector3 points and with this list you can then create a line using the line renderer.

 Bye,

How can I add LineRenderer positions based on the Array?

Hi,

 ah bugger, I though we had an action for that. Let me work on one and get back to you tomorrow on this. there is one that can draw a line between two objects, I'll modify it so that you can pass an array of points.

Hi,

 done :)

 download DrawPathLineRendering from the Ecosystem browser and you can then control a lineRenderer positions. It's working differently then the DrawLine action, it expects a lineRenderer Component instead of creating one from scratch, which gives you a lot more control during editing this way.

 Let me know how it goes.

Bye,

 Jean
