Pathfinder

After running around dozens of maps for hours and hours trying to find the place I was supposed to go to, and of which location the game designers assumed was completely obvious, I had enough and said to myself "Instead of giving those damned NPCs such lame, useless quotes, why couldn't they have them simply GIVE DIRECTIONS?". So I sat at my desk and a few hours later I'd done it (which proves how easy a feature it is to implement). And today I'm sharing it with you, so that I don't spend hours looking everywhere when playing your own projects. :)



Features


  • Just name the events connecting your maps as "Exit", and the script automatically searches for those connections.
  • The pathfinder always returns the shortest way to go from one map to another.
  • It is possible to ask for directions from a different map than the one you're in.
  • Use along with the Keywords System to make asking for a destination even easier.
