Creating an entourage path
Types of paths
Blank path allows users to create a path and add selected pedestrians onto it.
Autospawned path allows users to create a path with random pedestrians on it.
Note: User will still have to assign pedestrians to the newly created path.
Note: Randomization and Stagger can be adjusted for pedestrians using the sliders shown below. These sliders can only be adjusted for "Auto Spawn" paths.
Randomization and Stagger sliders are used to simulate real life movement of people.
Types of Entourage
Note: For this tutorial I will only be using pedestrian paths
Adding a pedestrian path
Step 1: Choose type of path(I chose Blank)
Step 2: Click "Create Path" button
Step 3: Use your cursor and click points on the ground to create your path.
Step 4: Press "ESC" to complete the path.
Step 5: Click on the thumbnail of the pedestrian to chose it.
Step 6: Hover pedestrian over the desired path.
Note: Path will turn red to indicate the pedestrian will be placed on this path.
Step 7: Left click to confirm placement of pedestrian on the path.
Note: Path visibility can be turned on and off by checking/unchecking the box shown below.
The image below demonstartes the visibility of the path turned off.
