ใ€ฐ๏ธPath Constraint

โœ…

Overview

This component allows the character to travel on a path. This is the connection between the Path Link and the Animal Controller.

Requirements

It requires to have a reference to the Animal component.

How it Works

With the component added to your character, when you get closer to any Path Link the character will activate the nearest path and it will activate the Path Constraint. All the properties to control the animal while is on the path, are set on the Path Link component.

As a recommendation set the Path Constraint inside the Animal Controller internal components, as a child gameObject.

Some paths are not set to be automatic. To activate them you can add an Input connection and use the method TryEnterExitPath()

This also works for exiting a path in the middle of it.
