I want to program navigation mesh creation.

I'm trying to study Navigation Meshes but I can't seem to find ANYTHING at alllll to use for study.The only thing I've found at all is just people using their tools which make navigation meshes.

Does anyone have any resource to study Navigation meshes from?

Or does anyone know how to code navigation meshes and mind some tutoring?

Any form of source would help or even code snippets.

I know how to program path finding such as A* and I've heard that Navigation Meshes do use A* so I mean I guess I'm half way there.

If anyone can help me pleaseee it would really be much appreciated any sort of information toward Navigation Meshes study.

Even a book or something! lol

When you want to do automatic navigation mesh generation from real world meshes, you might want to have a look at mesh and polygon reduction methods, while keeping the main characteristics of the mesh.

Here are some links I found:

you miss understood i know about geometry simplification that has nothing to do with "navigation meshes"

Navigation meshes are about path finding.
