The latest developer update from Camelot Unchained provides details on the ongoing Linuxification, NPC pathfinding, and more.
NPC pathfinding is no doubt a difficult aspect of development. But here, improvements to navmesh are providing some help. Bugs are being discovered and worked on which will finally result in, “full 3D path planning with a dynamically built navmesh.”
Linuxification is also seeing updates with testing continuing on that platform to work out bugs. A bug plaguing Windows 7 users was isolated and addressed. However, the team has a warning for Windows 7 users,
“Also, as a reminder to those of you still using Windows 7, it is our position that all users running Windows 7 should upgrade to a newer version of Windows as soon as possible. Microsoft will be ending its official support for Windows 7 as of January 14th, 2020. Once Microsoft drops support for Windows 7, so too will CSE. We won’t do anything to intentionally break builds on Windows 7, but we will no longer be officially supporting it. If you are on Windows 7, please follow the steps in this doc to address the issues you are having https://forums.
