NodeCanvas– download Unity asset
The complete Visual Behaviour Authoring framework for Unity, empowering you to create advanced AI Behaviours and Logic, including three separate, fully featured, yet seamlessly interchangeable modules for you to choose and easily add in your game:
✔ Behaviour Trees
✔ Hierarchical State Machines
✔ Dialogue Trees
NodeCanvas is a production ready framework used by many awesome games including Pamela, Hurtworld, Kim, Shroud of the Avatar, Kingdom, The Long Dark and Ghost of a Tale among many others.
• Use the right tool for the task at hand, choosing among three different systems.
• Design reactive Behaviour Trees and Hierarchical State Machines within an intuitive, designer friendly visual node editor:
(Full Undo/Redo, Zoom In/Out, Minimap, Multi-selection, Duplication, Copy/Pasting, JSON Import/Export, Groups, Comments and more)
• Use local & global variables of any type, visually or in code, for creating reusable and actor-oriented, parametric behaviours, optionally saving and loading those variables between gaming sessions.
• Data Bind variables with any component property or field of any type directly.
• Sync variables automatically over the network using UNET, for creating multiplayer games. (Since UNET is now deprecated, this feature will be moved to a new network solution).
• Visually Debug behaviours with realtime, colorful and informative runtime debugging.
• Utilize the Graph Console to automatically locate faulty nodes with ease.
• Utilize the Graph Finder to quickly search through nodes, tasks and parameters.
• Utilize the Graph Minimap to view and navigate the graph hassle free.
• Live Edit everything while in play mode to perfectly understand your design goals and how to achieve them.
• Utilize any existing code directly with advanced and extremely fast Reflection Tasks, automatically integrating Unity's and 3rd Party asset APIs.
• Work with Lists/Arrays, Enums, Interfaces and pretty much ANY Variable Type you need out-of-the-box.
• Tailor type related menus to your needs using the Preferred Types Editor.
• React to world changes and transfer data using the built-in Event System.
• Reuse and Bind made behaviours among any number of different agents.
• Organize your designs using Behaviour Sub-Trees and Sub-State Machines.
• Extend NodeCanvas Framework to create your own Actions, Conditions, Nodes or even completely new modules with the ease of a powerful, clean and well documented API.
• Customize inspectors in all ways possible, using Custom Object & Attribute Drawers.
• Integrate with lots of 3rd party assets.
• Publish to all platforms out-of-the-box.
• Rock Solid Performance. Zero Runtime Allocations.
• Full Source Code Included.
• And so much more...
