Node Network (.nntx)


A NodeNetwork is a collection of nodes (points in world space), connected by links. A node network is used to perform "pathfinding" - the movement logic for navigating a map with obstacles.

  1. Right-click on the node network in Glue

  2. Select View in Explorer

  3. Right-click on node network file (.nntx) in Windows Explorer
