Using NavigationAgents

NavigationsAgents are helper nodes to facilitate common calls to the NavigationServer API on behalf of the parent actor node in a more convenient manner for beginners.

2D and 3D version of NavigationAgents are available as NavigationAgent2D and NavigationAgent3D respectively.

NavigationsAgents are entirely optional for navigation pathfinding. The functionality of NavigationsAgents can be recreated with scripts and direct calls to the NavigationServer API. If the default NavigationsAgent does not do what you want for your game feel free to design your own NavigationsAgent with scripts.

Warning

NavigationsAgent nodes and NavigationServer agents are not the same. The later is an RVO avoidance agent and solely used for avoidance. RVO avoidance agents are not involved in regular pathfinding.
