Open source pathfinding for Unity

( Crawled 30 minutes ago )

What is it?

It's an automated, very simple path finding package for Unity. It's based on A* and written in UnityScript and C#. I am doing this in tandem with our Deus Ex themed game The Vongott Chronicles

How to use it?

Refer to the example project for a demonstration. You can select the map type in the "Scanner" object, and then activate the corresponding object (NavMeshTest, WayPointTest or GridTest).






For reasons unbeknownst to me, when you select an object with the OPPathFinder component on it, and the Unity Inspector is visible, there is a huge memory leak in Unity, causing the whole environment to come to a crawl. Select any other object in the scene (or unfocus/disable the inspector temporarily) and it's fine.
