Hi, im planing on making a RTS game but then I would need pathfinding and right now I have no idea how to make that. I have looked around on google and youtube and I understand the theory, but im not sure how to implement it into AGK...

Im guessing no one has done this for AppGameKit yet but if anyone has some DBP code that I could look at it would realy help.

For example I have no Idea how to check if a point has a sprite in it.

Thanks in advance!

Searching for Path Finding on the forums brings up quite a few posts, but this one seems to be pretty good.

Hope it all works out for you!

While I haven't looked through it myself, this link looks promising:

Yes, I saw that one to, and I think I understand what's in it... But im not sure how to check if you are supposed to use evry AppGameKit point as Possible square or make some kind of grid system... And things like that
