    @DatapawWolf They've asked for the code and I've submitted it for review 2 days ago

    @Otreum, @Staggerlee Thanks!

    @Staggerlee Thats an interesting use case and its possible in Dungeon Architect with platform volumes



    Is this what you were looking for?

    When you drop in a platform volume, it contributes to the dungeon as a corridor. You can change that to be a room. Rooms are automatically connected to at-least one other room by the plugin so that they are all accessible either directly or indirectly (through other rooms). Also it should be possible with blueprints. I'll post another video later

      Yes! Exactly what i meant. I think this gives a nice blend between procedural and artist built. This is darn fine work indeed.

        Nice plugin! And I thought I'm going to miss the Unity asset store.

          Great plugin! Maybe my new project could be the "demo" game for it?

            Lots of performance improvements

            Instanced Mesh Support
            Added support for instanced meshes. Enabling the flag in the dungeon configuration creates instanced static meshes for all the meshes in the scene


            Async Rebuild
            The dungeon layout was already being built in a separate thread. However, the meshes and actors need to be spawned in the game thread, which was the bottleneck. I wrap all these actions in command objects and queue them and run it over multiple frames (with configurable max time it should take per frame). This helps in maintaining a good frame rate when the dungeon is built at runtime and constantly modified by the player (see next post)


            Dungeon Rebuild Hotspot
            When rebuilding the dungeon over multiple frames, meshes closer to the build hotspot point will spawn earlier than the ones further away. This is useful when building the dungeon at runtime and you want the meshes near the cursor to spawn first, when it is modified and rebuilt (see next post)

              Dungeon Architect doesn't just empower the level designer, but also your players. The plugin comes with a sample game mode that shows how you, as a player, can design your levels at runtime, and then play in it. In this video, I switch between two pawns, the level designer pawn that lets you paint the layout of the dungeon and feed that data to the dungeon object (which does most of the heavy lifting) and an FPS pawn, which lets you play the map you just designed (in first person mode), all while the game is running.

              The optimisations (see previous post) lets you design huge levels with a consistent frame-rate.

              You can use this to let you players design their own levels, or maybe centre your gameplay around this concept of building

              A NPC AI bot is added that follows the player to show proper dynamic navmesh generation

                Unity version is also in progress . I'll create a WIP thread in Unity forums soon and post a link here for anyone interested
