click to move

hexgrid

After staring at this and this for a while and feeling kind of overwhelmed trying to make a hex grid from scratch, I found this on the asset store, which has example code for making a hexgrid and doing pathfinding on it. Going to try to pick it apart as best I can and use it as a starting point.

hexmap Ok, after watching this I found thereโ€™s already really good hex tilemapping in unity 2d projects (Iโ€™ll prob still want to take the pathfinding from that asset store package. ) now that Iโ€™ve got this I might make some placeholder terrain tiles. I had to switch the project from 3d to 2d to get the tile palette to show up.

So now what I am looking for is a way to do click to move and pathfinding with the built in unity grid system. Thereโ€™s a GetTile function that I think I can use, Iโ€™d like to find an example though. What iโ€™m looking for is: highlight all the tiles that are within the range of the moving piece get the hex of the mouse position listen for a click, change the goal of the moving piece to that hex if itโ€™s a valid hex.

Iโ€™m still really just in the research phase so far until I figure out how best to do this basic stuff.
