comment How does pathfinding in RTS games work?
The flowfield algorithm seems pretty interesting, and definitely seems to do a much better job of pathing than most algorithms, but I wish there was public documentation on how the system itself worked, not just how the system it's based on works. Naturally, there are a lot of questions developers should ask before implementing a core system like this, but, in this case, it seems the only way to answer those questions is to implement the system first. :(

What programming language are you using? Knowing this will allow people to provide answers and code snippets that are easier for you to understand.

comment Recorded Voice or Synthesized Speech?
@gary comtois After your edit indicating that the game was for toddlers, I made significant modifications to my answer. It's amazing how having children as a target demographic can impact development. :)
