Join Dan Violet Sagmiller for an in-depth discussion in this video Navigation mesh, part of Build a Real-Time Strategy Game with Unity 5.
- [Voiceover] We'll need a way…to limit the players to playable areas,…so they can't climb over hills or run through lakes.…To do that, we're going use something…called the navigation mesh.…In Unity, you can find the navigation mesh…by going to Window, Navigation.…Navigation meshes will show up…over a certain part of the terrain,…identifying which areas can be walked on,…and then AIs can use this information…to define how to get around obstacles…and navigate from one point to another.…So, it wants to know what type of objects…are we going to be applying this to.…
All we're really going to be applying this to is terrains,…so I'll just click Terrains.…Next, let's go the bake settings.…Under the bake settings,…it's asking us about the baked agent size.…So what does that mean?…Well, an agent is a unit that can travel over this terrain,…such as a player or a car.…We're giving it information about it,…such as how wide it is, how tall it is,…how steep of a slope it can climb.…So, the first thing is the radius.…How wide is it?…
