Ogre Navigation and Mapper Information
This information is how to use Ogre Navigation, and the mapper. (OgreNav_Lib). This does not support flying or swimming.

In many of the previous Navigations, you could plot out a specific path. OgreNav doesn't work like that. It plots out points. Then when you want to go some where, it determines the best way to get there, from all the points it has available to it.

The mapper maps EVERY single spot your character goes. All connections are 2 way. This means you NEED to be careful when mapping. Do NOT jump, do NOT run over cliffs, or go down hills you can't go back up.

How to create a map
While it technically doesn't matter why you are creating a map, I'll use some best practices and some examples to show how to create a map.

  1. 1 Rule. NEVER, EVER, name a point with a number only. It breaks your entire map. You have been warned.

General Movement:

  • Lets say you travel quite often to a zone that doesn't have any easy travel. So you wish for the bot to handle the movement for you. Lets take an example: In Antonica, you travel frequently from the NQ zone in, to the Mage Tower. (Yes, for now ignore there is the bird system, it's just an example!).
  • Starting at the NQ zone in, you would start the mapper ( Ogre Map ). Because we'll want to travel back to this point, we'll want to name it.
  • Press F2 and name it. I personally prefix everything. In this case "ZoneNQ".
  • Now run to the Mage Tower, keeping in mind, these are the points the bot will navigate through to get there also. So no jumping, and no running off cliffs.
  • When you arrive at the Mage Tower, press F2, and give it a name "MageTower".
  • Now you can save and exit the mapper (F12).
  • Your map is now completed for this journey. See Ogre Move to see how to travel between them.
