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"

AI workflow:Using transportation


I am making a management /simulation game with crowd and I want them to be able to use transportation, in my case a ski lift/gondala. I am still fairly new with AI, so wondered what the best workflow for this is. Should my AI switch to being purely animated once they enter the lift? Having each gondala interact with the AI (pathing and collision) whilst its moving seems like it could get very heavy, especially with multiple lifts and 100's of AI.

Secondly how can I make it work with the pathing so the AI knows its cheaper to get a lift than walk?

What is the best practice for this kind of AI work?

Thanks very much

Just to add some more info and to give the post a bump:

I am familiar with the navmesh and movement cost but am unsure how to fit a lift into this system, less on a technical level but more the methodology behind it.

Any info is much appreciated.
