Description
This addon is now officially in the public build :) Thx you for the support! I won't remove the addon here just in case if someone mess something up :P

This add-on's main goal is to fix every zombie AI navigation issues (godspots) on all official escape maps. There also will be some improvement with the navigation meshes in general. Zombies will be much more smarter, they will climb and use more routes to get you!

What navigation issues? I don't understand :(
I have prepared a nice presentation screenshot for you :) Just look at the first screenshot on this workshop page. Navigation meshes are normally invisible ingame but here you can see them clearly. Each of them are connected with a blue line but there are some meshes that are not connected... which means: If you as survivor stand on such an area the zombies won't find a way to reach you because the nav mesh is isolated from all the other ones, causing the zombies to stay on their position forever to find a reachable route :( Same problem occurs when nav meshes are missing on certain areas. You need to manually connect or create additional nav meshes ingame to fix those issues.

Ongoing updates
This is a side-project between my main projects (TWZ & HotZ) so I can not spare all my freetime into it. It will take a while to find all those issues. I'm gonna stress-test every map, checking out every walkable areas until nothing is left! To make it interesting for YOU and for ME. I will update this add-on at least once a week.

Ongoing documentation about any nav issues
Once I'm done with a map I will also upload every nav issues that I found ingame as screenshots on this workshop page and even mark them properly. Red marked ones are nav issues, green marked ones (optional here, not everything is showed via screenshots) are improved nav meshes. If you found a new issue just post it in this thread and I will fix it asap!

Compatibility:
- This addon will just get ignored if you join a public server which doesn't have this add-on.
- Great news for server owners! You can use this addon without problems. Players won't get kicked because they don't have this VPK.

Thats great to hear! I was worried as someone had said they haven't said anything in months. Hoping for a new update soon :)

I have given the devs permission to use this nav add-on on their next update :) There should be an official update coming soon, but not sure when.

Impressive! This is superb work CCL Sama! Thank you . Is there a possiblity for you to push the official servers into using this ? I am about to quit this game due to the griefers and people who misuse the bugs

So basically if I host listen server and if I have this VPK - it should work for all players on the server, they don't have to have this vpk installed, right?
