In addition to this, the rules governing whether it is possible to navigate from any given point A to a secondary point B are entirely dependent on the skaterâ€™s state at point A. The state required at point A involves a large number of variables, as well as a complex set of previously executed maneuvers to have reached it. lemme put it with example my car is on postion (0,0,0) i wanna go to (10,0,50) then to (20,0,70) and so on, i have methods for accelerating,bracking,steering left,right. if the point is straight ahead, i want to accelerate, if it is not, i have to steer. its simple enough to say, but i m not able to implement it. how am i gonna able to solve this problem. if not code then an algorithm explanation with example will be very nice. thanku RE: pathfinding for skating game in VC - PoseMotion - Sep 2, 2011 09:31 PM Multiple points would be needed for corners. AI skater(s) would then rotate to axis to next point. Just mathematically get axis from current point to next point.
