    Engine Plugin
    This product contains a code plugin, complete with pre-built binaries and all its source code that integrates with Unreal Engine, which can be installed to an engine version of your choice then enabled on a per-project basis.

Easy Utility AI is a lightweight framework that greatly simplifies AI creation. Design all sorts of behaviors for Enemies and Companions alike across all genres. It is meant to be a replacement for Behavior Trees, Blackboards and Environment Queries. The idea is to make AI design more accessible by using the default Blueprint Graph instead of separate editors. It is fully compatible with navmesh, sensing and perception. You may also use it with other sensing or navigation plugins as you see fit. From pattern based boss fights to characters with needs and goals, EAI provides tools to make the design process more convenient.
