NavMesh supports LoadLevelAdditive

Improved performance and reduced memory consumption:

  • NavMeshObstacles update is multi-threaded now. Carving speed generally improved 2-4x.
  • NavMesh data for non-carved regions takes ~2x less memory now.
  • Performance improvements for multi-threaded NavMeshAgent updates.
  • HeightMeshes bake faster, work faster at runtime, and use ~35% less memory.
  • Path replanning in presence of many carving obstacles is faster and more accurate.

Improved inspectors and debug visualizations:NavMesh Areas inspector (previously NavMesh Layers) got a facelift.

  • Reorganized parameters NavMeshAgent inspector.
  • Added carve hull debug visualisation for NavMeshObstacles.
  • Added visualisation on how NavMesh bake settings relate to each other.

Improved accuracy and raised limits:

  • NavMeshObstacle supports two basic shapes – cylinder and box for both carving and avoidance.
  • Improved automatic Off-Mesh Link collision detection accuracy. Note that this will change how off-mesh links placement on existing scenes.
  • Improved navmesh point location/mapping when height mesh is used.
  • Increased the height range of NavMesh baking (can build meshes for taller scenes).
  • Made Height Mesh query more resilient to small holes in input geometry.
  • NavMesh obstacle rotation is take into account when carving and avoiding.
  • NavMesh tile count limit lifted from 216 to 228.
  • NavMeshPath and NavMeshAgent paths removed 256 polygon limit.
  • OffMeshLink – removed restriction on tile span – previously connected only up to neighbouring tiles.

  • Available callbacks are : OnStateEnter, OnStateExit, OnStateUpdate, OnStateMove, OnStateIK, OnStateMachineEnter and OnStateMachineExit
  • Animator.GetBehaviour(). This function return the first StateMachineBehaviour that match type T


  • StateMachine TransitionsCan now add higher level transitions from StateMachine to StateMachine
  • Entry and Exit nodes define how the StateMachine behaves upon entering and exiting.


  • Asset APIAllows to create and edit, in Editor, all types of Mecanim assets ( Controllers, StateMachines, BlendTree etc.)
  • Added API for Avatar, Motion Nodes, Events and Curve in the Model Importer
  • Direct Blend Tree.New type of blend tree to control the weight of each child independently
