      I have a native iOS game (objective c, XCode build) which I am considering to port to other platforms.
      Core gameplay is based on solely on geographical maps, and custom drawing over maps. It also has Core Data. This part is complete in development.
      What is not done yet is: monetization, gamification (leaderboards, challenges) and multiplayer functionality.
      As I think more about it, I am tempted to think if this is the right time to move to a cross platform tool such as Unity. But before dedicating time to port my 5 years side-project effort in Objective C, I really want to know if its worth it.
      - Does Unity support such plugins / assets that will fulfill all my above requirements?
      - Unity Personal seems to have only 20 concurrent users - is it too costly scaling if I decide for extending to web and android platforms?
      - What is the general workflow involved in publishing to iOS, Android, PC, and web platforms while using Unity? I mean to ask about various points of signing stuff, paying fees and getting certified.
      - How long will it really take to port my entire Objective C project into Unity? I am somewhat familiar with C# but I am finding it hard fidgeting with Unity IDE as lot of things are focused around FPS and 3D while my game is still 2d - not much action involved. I seem bit overwhelmed by the list of features I see there. All in all, I do not want to lose my momentum while still making sure its portable to everywhere.
      - Any assets I could use (for free to try basis in debug) that are relevant for my game?
      - Last but not the least, are there any costs that I need to be paying upfront to Unity, for using it (apart from their monthly subscription model)? I don't understand their costing for multiplayer in conjunction with their subscription fees - if someone could kindly elaborate.
      Thanks in advance for your time reading a newbie

      me and few friends are developing simple city building game with unity for a school project, think something like Banished but much simpler. I was tasked to create the path-finding for the game so I mostly followed this tutorial series up to episode 5. Then we created simple working system for cutting trees. The problem is that the path-finding is working like 90% of the time, then it get stuck randomly then there's clearly a way to the objective (tree). I tried looking for some pattern when it happens but can't find anything. So basically I need any tips for how I should approach this problem.
      Use this image to visualize the problem.

Unity Programming for Lexibook TAB108 (Was: Looking for Lexibook Api)

In this topic: http://www.gamedev.net/community/forums/topic.asp?topic_id=277004 MrEvil was looking for a TAB108 Lexibook API. I can't reply to him in the original topic, so I will do it here. I've made a small WWW research on lexibook TAB108. I knew it was made by GSPDA (www.gspda.com), but I was unable to find info about it on GSPDA page. Then I looked inside the RenewOS.app Operating System upgrade and saw a "V68E" symbol. Googling for it I found an old GSPDA page still in Google's cache. I went to archive.org and found the original page. Lexibook TAB108 is GSPDA V68E. It is based on the TMP91C025 CPU, a Toshiba TLCS-900/L1 Series. The original GSPDA page (stored at web.archive.org), http://web.archive.org/web/20030216105618/http://www.gspda.com/v68e8.html had a link for "API", but it was directed to a "under construction" page. A newer version of this page lacks that link. I've looked inside Toshiba. If this device uses the standard Toshiba Real-Time OS for TLCS-900/L1, it could be programmed with the Toshiba tools. Some of them (Toshiba CASE TOOL) can be downloaded for a trial time. http://www.semicon.toshiba.co.jp/eng/prd/micro/mctool/micdev_top.html (look for 900/L1 tools) There seems to be no open source C compiler for TLCS-900, but there is a cross-assembler, ASL, you can run under DOS, OS/2 or Linux. That's all I've found, although I'm sure there should be many other low-end palm devices based on this GSPDA reference. EDIT: Although I've found no C compiler for this system, a guy was trying to do it about November, 2000: http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2000-11/msg00707.html

Additional info: There were a couple of devices called E-GO500 and E-GO800 whose programs use an object code very similar to that of lexibook TAB100 series.

I've sent an email to a guy who posted an usenet article about "TLCS-900/L1 PDA":

Jan, 7 edit: The following international pages still have the V68 in their catalogs:
Oswin technology (former GSPDA singapore): http://www.gst.com.sg
GSPDA china: http://www.gspda.com.cn
The V68/V68i devices at GSPDA china are very similar to TAB108, but they don't seem to be 100% compatible with it.
