Hello everyone, I’m enjoying Unity but Im having trouble with Lists in C#, and from googling, I think my approach is all wrong.
In my game, when the player dies they leave behind a trail of waypoints. When they respawn, a new AI character also spawns and follows the waypoints. I’ve got this working fine by storing the waypoints in a List and using a Navmesh agent.
I’m having problems when the player dies more than once and having different AI’s follow different sets of waypoints. To create a new set of waypoints, I tried clearing the List just after I’ve instantiated the character and sent it the waypoints its should follow. The problem with this I believe is that because Lists are a reference type, the AI’s List to follow also gets cleared.
How can I make a copy of this List which won’t also get cleared?
The only other way I could think of was to make a List of Lists that don’t get cleared, but I can’t seem to find much about this which suggests there’s a better way.
private List<List> listOfLists = new List<List>(); doesn’t seem to work, I can post more code if needed.
Any help at all would be awesome. - Thanks
