A* search algorithm ( Node based )

(edderkop) #1

here is a “A* search algorithm” not the fastest around but it gets the job done.

i created it to generate roads on my random maps.

Thanks for the blend

Did you explain how to use it in the blend?

I have made a few optimizations and did a little cleanup of the code

could this be used for small spherical planets?

(edderkop) #6

yes it is possible, how to do it would be up to you.

(Lostscience) #7

i was thinking more along the lines of a maze on a sphere.
