The current NPCs we have will have a different system, where you use NPC way points and IO to direct them to travel to them.

There will also be an NPC spawner item as well for temporary NPCs / Enemies you can kill.

holy pog

Question;
Will there be a translation option for how the movement is dealt with?
For instance;

  • Lineal
  • Ease In
  • Ease Out
  • Ease In/Out
  • Sinusoidal
  • Parabolic

Adding that if we can set a fixed speed value between A & B, it’s going to be an insane change.
