Note: I have stopped using Unity and so am not maintaining this library any more.
Unity Spline2D is a free 2D simple spline library for Unity.
- Easy to use: define a series of intersection points and that’s it. The spline will pass through those points with a default Catmull-Rom curvature. No need to set tangent control points.
- Positions and Derivatives: get both a position on the curve and its derivative (to get facing)
- Interpolate by Distance: interpolating by
talone can result in varied speeds along the curve if your points are not equidistant. With Spline2D you can ask for a position a specific distance along the curve instead, and therefore traverse the curve at a known speed regardless of the structure of the curve.
- Tweakable curvature: if you want something other than Catmull-Rom style
curves, you can increase/decrease the
Curvatureproperty to change the shape
- Optimised for 2D: always flat, defaults to X/Y like 2D mode in Unity but can be switched to display/edit in X/Z for use with 3D floor planes
Spline2DComponent.csanywhere you like
- To just use splines from general code, instantiate
Spline2Dand call its AddPoint methods etc to build the spline
- To use a spline in a scene & save it, use
Spline2DComponentas a regular Unity component. There is a inspector with buttons to add/remove points, and you can select points and drag them around to change the curve.
