Testing a simple idea for object avoidance - it only works out in the open with circular collision objects.
I guess if an NPC gets hooked up on an obstacle you could try having it walk off in a random direction
before turning back to the target.

BASIC appeared in May 1964. Lightning flashed, the wind roared and the Earth moved.
And nine months later I was born.
So here I am.
I am Basic.
Code is in my genes.

On the below thread you will see a random walk algorythm which may help and some great suggestions from scraggle
to improve works best if your working in a gid style environment. There's also some great function by blink0k on same page
ideally one of the most effective terrain followers I found was by chafari thats on the forum somewhere

This thread uses a cheat style approach from the movement of cars originally which i placed invisible objects to the left and right in from of a car
it worked for the car dynamics but maybe not what you might be looking for.

Thanks very much fubarpk.
So many goodies in that thread... almost feels like Christmas.

Grabbed a copy of "Map generator using the Random Walk Algorithm".

Also grabbed "3D Clouds Shader" , been thinking of trying a 3D model aircraft using the physics system.
Cheers mate.
