GM Motion Planning

Posted by Airslide on July 21, 2007

One of the problems with many top-down games is the path-finding. People use the D&D action that simply attempts to go around solid objects, and quite often this fails in complex games. Game Maker already has the A*algorithm method, however it is not widely used and many people who don't code GML don't even know it exists. Well, now you can use D&D to use this powerful functionality of Game Maker! This extension automatically handles the creation/destruction of paths, setups a single global grid, and features some new, useful commands that are not featured in the GM command set.

I may define the functions later (if the edit will let me) but I'm short on time at the moment and I wanted to get this up. Should be useful for anyone making a top-down game.
