      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.

Hi I split my post into two parts because an introduction doesn't belong here ;) so go here to see what I’m working on and how much I am so happy to be here blah blah blah http://www.gamedev.net/topic/663288-my-acclaimed-introduction-d/#entry5195417


So, I'm having a (probably basic) problem with normal maps in Unity 4.5 that maybe someone here knows a little about. I'm using the terrain generator to design the level, and I have some textures set up in the Paint Texture menu. It looks like when you add the texture you can also add a normal map. I'm adding a black and white height map of my image, which has been processed into a normal map when it was imported into unity (purple/orange image). I have also set the material of the terrain to "Nature/Terrain/Bumped Specular" which is the only bump shader for terrain.


I have also tried setting the lights to Deferred Lighting and also Forward Lighting with no change. When I remove and add the normal map from the texture there is no change at all, as if I didn't add it in the first place.


Here are a few pics so you guys can see my settings and what I'm seeing...
