This editor tool will help you setting up your level's navigation links. It detects every edge in the navmesh(es) of your level and automatically creates navigation links based on the given parameters. This tool uses standard features included in the engine (navigation meshes, navigation links, nav modifier volumes), so UE's AI workflow is preserved.


It supports multiple nav agents, meaning that if there are multiple recast navmeshes in the level (one for each nav agent), you can specify which nav agent(s) you want to generate nav links for.

Technical Details

Features:

  • Single editor tool window for setting parameters, generating and clearing navigation links.
  • Supports nav links with varying horizontal/vertical distances.
  • Supports multiple nav agents (multiple recast navmeshes per level).
  • Supports nav areas to avoid (using nav modifier volumes), discarding nav links that would end up being generated inside those areas.
  • Supports generating nav links only inside the specified areas (using nav modifier volumes), discarding any nav link that isn't inside those area.
  • Supports obstacle avoidance, discarding any nav links that have an obstacle between the left and right points.
