[MOD] Pathfinder (EXPERIMENTAL)

by sapier » Post

This mod adds a function to do pathfinding in pure lua.

it's quite slow but as long as core version isn't added it's better than nothing.
DON'T mention coding style!

Exactly what it sounds like: algorithms to find the best path between two points. It would allow a zombie to go around obstacles instead of always moving in a straight line and getting stuck, for instance

I might figure out a way to ad this maybe to my npc mod.

Would the pathfinder take into account doors? Meaning would it look at a door the same as a wall? I would think a pathfinder would be a lot more interesting if a mob, for example, knew it had to open a certain number of doors in a building in order to reach the player. Because most buildings have doors.

This would also be very nice to be able to be set as an option for a mob. So only certain mobs could open wood doors, and could also have the option for a mob to open a steel door. This however, might take a lot of work coding wise, and I am not that good at lua (and pathfinding, I would say, is probably one of the hardest things to code).
