Overview

We are opening up the Pathfinding project to the public on the main grid AGNI. You can get involved and help us make this project better.

What is Pathfinding

Pathfinding provides tools and functions to enable smoother and smarter movement behavior for non-avatar entities in Second Life (for example, monsters in a game, rats in a haunted house, wisps in a fantasy forest). We refer to these entities as characters; in gaming terminology, they are sometimes called NPCs (non-player characters) or mobs (mobile objects).

Where can I test Pathfinding

We have 4 public sandbox testing regions on the main grid. You are welcome to use them to test the pathfinding features. The Snack regions are available to members of the group "Second Life Beta". Please join this group: http://world.secondlife.com/group/19657888-576f-83e9-2580-7c3da7c0e4ca . The other regions are open access.
