Path: calculatePartial

  • a path that the AI has calculated may become blocked by unwalkable tags (ie for a door).
  • if that happens, then the AI keeps trying to recalculate a path.
  • the info message says to use “calculatePartial” to prevent this.

If I set a destination directly on AIPath with
this.destination = destination;
How can I set calculatePartial for all pathes in this case?


There’s no exposed option for calculatepartial on the AIPath script at the moment. Using calculatePartial requires either that:

  1. You use ai.SetPath instead.
  2. or that you sub-class the AIPath script and override the SearchPath method to add calculatePartial = true.

Regarding Option 2 (which would be the best for me):
I have sub-classed AIPath, but I can not access calculatePartial in SearchPath() of the child class either.
How would I go about doing that?

Edit: I tried using setWalkability instead of tags, since an old forum post indicated that would
make calculatePartial unnecessary.

But the agent just walks over the area where I modified the walkability.

What could possibly be wrong with this:

        GraphUpdateObject guo = new GraphUpdateObject(_doorWalkabilityCollider.bounds);
        guo.modifyWalkability = true;
        guo.setWalkability = true;;

I needed to also add:

guo.updatePhysics = false;

Without this line, walkability will not update.

You will need to duplicate the implementation of the original AIPath.SearchPath function, and then set the calculatePartial field on the created path object.
But yeah, I really should be exposing this field so that this is easier to do.
