comment How can I generate a 2d navigation mesh in a dynamic environment at runtime?
Great answer, @Mathew. And you should definitely read that paper! It's easy to follow and explains a great technique (especially Appendix A which talks about agent based discovery/generation of the mesh). I am coding a version of this algorithm for javascript, and it is coming along well. I'll post it as an answer when it is done.

Marking correct because this overall conversation in the comments worked. Upvoted David's answer.

@David, if I understand your comment: Could I find the midpoint between two vertices, subtract the center of the polygon, find the unit vector of that, and than add it to both original points?

Are you saying that adding the UnitVector of the original vectors will always make the vectors move outward from the center of the polygon?

it's javascript. In javascript, undefined evaluates false, so if the array index is undefined, the left side of the || condition is false, so the right side is used.

For what it is worth, I am working on a solution based on this paper: gradworks.umi.com/3493710.pdf If I am successful I will post my solution.
