PathEngine has released version 5.26 of its eponymous path-finding AI middleware.
This latest update for the fifth edition will feature some improvements that were originally saved for the eventual release of PathEngine 6, the company said.
“What we've done for this release is to basically merge some code from the still-in-development SDK release 6 back to the 5.xx branch to give us some incremental improvements over previous releases,” a spokesperson said.
These improvements come without changes to the middleware’s API.
Key optimisations include a new collision preprocess system which can cut generation times by a half, as well as fundamental changes to ground mesh representation to save memory.
