    BREAKING CHANGES! PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
    Minimum required Unity version: 4.6.0

    • NEW: HOTween has been replaced with DOTween for 400% faster tweens
    • NEW: Message functionality has been replaced with built-in UnityEvents for specifying target, method, argument in the inspector at waypoints
    • NEW: "reverse" checkbox on movement scripts, allows moving in the opposite direction on the path on a per-walker basis
    • NEW: "startPoint" variable added on movement scripts, allows starting from a different waypoint position on the path3
    • NEW: startPoint also works with "moveToPath", e.g. walking directly to the third waypoint, then continuing the path as usual
    • NEW: included DOTween looptype "Yoyo" which lets your object move on the path forwards until the end, then it moves backwards to the start
    • NEW: movement script methods: GoToWaypoint(index), Pause(seconds)
    • CHANGE: BezierMove events can now be called at waypoints too, the setting for messages on percentual path positions has been removed
    • CHANGE: "currentPoint" variable is not meant to be modified anymore for setting a start position, use the new startPoint variable instead
    • CHANGE: minor variable naming adjustments to be in line with DOTween
    • CHANGE: method renaming: ResetMove() -> ResetToStart()
    • DEL: minimalMove movement script removed, use splineMove instead
    • DEL: delay settings removed, use new events and Pause(seconds) instead

    Upgrade guide:

    • bezierMove scripts are gone, so if you have been using them in your
        scenes, please replace them with the splineMove movement script.
        Make a backup to easily compare script values during this process.


    • fixed initial positioning issue with local walkers on bezier paths
    • fixed events not being called on local or repositioned bezier paths


    • Reverse() method added to movement scripts, reverse walkers anytime
    • Adding PathManagers to WaypointManager at runtime redesigned: you dont have to call WaypointManager.AddPath on runtime created paths anymore.

        while moving. This mode is added via new dropdown 'Waypoint Rotation',
        which gets visible in the movement inspector if 'Path Mode' is set to
        'Ignored'. Note that this is an experimental feature and might change.
