Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Get character to only walk on sidewalk

I have an ai character that I place in the level, and I have him walking between target points with a nav mesh..

The level is a city though, so I don't want it walking in the street or grass, but the nav mesh covers everything. Can I mask it so it only covers side walks and cross walks?

You can use multiple agents, (multiple nav meshes) to segregate which nav to use. Google/youtube navmesh agents for examples.

Ok great, that makes sense.

Is there a procedural way to do this if the level is very large? If the road network is one static mesh actor, can a nav mesh be created on the same space? Manually placing and sizing nav meshes to match the road network would take an eternity.
