    After so many seconds of losing LoS, they'll return to their idle behaviors. If this happens to be a search behavior, they will investigate your last known position.

    I have to say, this looks like its going to be the best AI asset for unity hands down. Can't wait to play around with it :)

    Thanks!

    I looked into it, but the Unity navmesh is more deeply entwined into the system than I thought it was. I don't think I'll be able to add alternate pathfinding support for the initial release, but it might be added later on. :)

    Yeah that happened to others packages too - and if you can't refactor, maybe you can document where the navmesh is in use. I must admit I prefer refactoring myself :)

    This future package I think would be a good fit for Paragon AI and the folks who want a procedural built at runtime solution.

    Hi
    can you make it compatible for playmaker or make it accessible from editor

    Hmm, that's interesting. If I add support for alternate pathfinding systems, that should be supported too.

    I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "accessible from the editor." You can adjust most of the public variables on each component from the editor.

    Hi
    i mean the functions for the ai to behave in that way if every function was accessible from editor in such a way to be able to modify the ai behaviour of the agent in the game.
    or else pls try to make actions for the playmaker.
    thanks

    Hi Squared55,
    Do you have an estimation as to when you assets will be available on the asset store?

    The first release of the asset is done. All that's left is asset store publishing.

    As I understand it, any account with a Shooter AI license will automatically be offered the upgrade price.

    I'm a little late to the party, only just found out about this asset via the release notes for UFPS 1.5.1. I vote for code comments!

    Looking forward to this asset, looks like the first fully-baked Mecanim AI solution on the store.

    I happen to stumbled across to this thread after reading the UFPS 1.5.1 release notes. Relieved to know that I will have the option to upgrade from my existing Shooter AI license.

    I would vote for Youtube videos for short highlevel tutorials, and code comments to get more in-depth understanding.

    This looks excellent, I have tried all the AIs out there and was always looking for smart AI which is easily integrated with UFPS. I will be interested in getting this for sure.

    As a future owner of your asset (as I own Shooter AI and will "upgrade") I do not want you to hurry. I don't care when you release your asset other than "when it's done". I don't want something buggy just because you had a few people tell you to hurry up.

    While waiting for some other things, I modified the loss of awareness system a bit. Now, the agents will know exactly where a target is until the target moves a given distance from the last position in which they were seen by the agent. That way, they won't forget about a player if they just crouch behind a wall, but won't track them if they run all the way to the other side of the map without being seen.

    In theory, at least. :)

    I wondered the same thing, Gateway Games is closing indefinitely after releasing Shooter AI 3.0. Shooter AI customers will get a discount for Paragon AI to compensate. Full details in this post in the Shooter AI thread.

    No, it's not. The art was swapped as a result of a miscommunication, it'll be switched back ASAP. I apologize for the confusion. That said, Paragon AI will be released under the Gateway Games account in order to facilitate an easy upgrade process.

    The asset store page is pretty much done, I just need to finalize the package. I'll need to run some testing to ensure that things haven't been broken with any last minute changes.

    Paragon AI uses mecanim, but supports both humanoid and generic rigs.

    Yes, you can have the AI fight on the same team as the player.

    Demo looks great ! I only spotted one bug/weird behavior: sometimes enemies remain unaware of your presence despite the fact that their companion(s) right next to them are shooting at you. One would expect the shots to get their attention and make them look at where his companions are shooting ahah. Other than that, I'm sold :)

    You need to throw a vp_spawner on them. I like how their helmets fall off when I stab them. They aim a little odd when they are right up on you. They get too close, so it looks wierd. Also, the accuracy is crazy.

    Thanks for the feedback, guys!

    Of course. :)

    I'm going to give the demo a few tweaks. The way the agents contort when up-close should be fixed.

    sorry, forgot to add.. any plans on adding melee for AI? I know its Shooter AI, but a one stop solution for both would be awesome, even if the AI run out of Ammo they could use un-armed combat or the end of the weapon.

    You mean like a distance at which point the agents will stop moving towards the player? Yes, although the player can close the distance. Also, "tactical" agents will ignore this as they may need to pass close by the player to reach cover.

    Melee is already supported, it's just not in the demos because I don't have any melee animations. They currently can't run out of ammo and charge the player, though.

    I mean, for example.. AI run up to you and hit you with a melee weapon or punch you. They stop within a distance of running up to you, so they do not get too close and you start seeing inside their mesh. Stopping distance between AI and the player before running the melee animation and applying damage. But you've answered my question below.

    It would also be good at some point if its not already supported to provide a weapons system for the AI so they can be assigned 2-3 weapons or more, plus un-armed combat. They switch weapons based on either no ammo, or choose to use a long range weapon if the player is out of short range weapons. Opting for either a grenade, or rocket launcher, or sniper rifle and only shoot using that weapon within the specified range of their chosen target (nearest or random within range). If this is not on the to-do list, no worries I'm sure I could add it in at some point.

    For melee animations you can use any animation from MIXAMO. They are offering all/any animation free (gratis).

    Also, I haven't set up the discounted upgrade price for Shooter AI users yet. So if it gets released on the asset store and you don't see the upgrade price immediately, don't worry. Again, the upgrade will cost somewhere between $5-$15 (before VAT, if applicable).

    Thanks in advance!
