How does Mercuna 3D work?

Mercuna 3D Navigation has been designed from the ground up as a comprehensive and powerful solution. If you want to take your AI beyond simple 3D movement, Mercuna enables you to take advantage of the years of development we’ve spent perfecting motion in 3D environments. We offer full volumetric pathfinding through an octree, coupled with sophisticated steering and dynamic avoidance algorithms. Configuration allows for different types of movement and navigation, and our interfaces allow you to easily plug Mercuna into your existing character movement system. We offer full, deep integration with Unreal Engine 5, so your developers will be able to use our 3D solution just as easily as UE5’s built-in system.
