I work full time at a big software company, when I'm not doing that I'm developing games. I keep a development blog at www.byte56.com and you can follow me on twitter.

I've created a course with Lynda.com to teach advanced scripting with the Unity 3D engine, check it out!

comment How to make speech recognition for a game?
Speech recognition is not something that's specific to game development. Additionally, how to create a speech recognition engine is far too broad of a subject here, and suggestions for speech recognition libraries is a "which technology to use" type question which we don't deal with here (they're too opinion based).

comment Problem with Visual Studio 2013 Community
You are working on something related to game development, but it sounds like the problems you're having are not specific to getting Unity to work with VS, it sounds more like problems with VS. Right now you need to search for a way to uninstall VS, which is not specific to game development. If you get stuck getting it to work with Unity after that, ask that question here.

comment How to find path in graph without crossing the walls?
My image is of a graph, not a polygon. I included your original graph only for illustration purposes. Just as Andrew created a new graph, not a polygon. Glad you got it working.

Please edit the question to include the details of how it's not working. More explanation of what you want and how you're doing it now couldn't hurt either.

comment How to find path in graph without crossing the walls?
@SmartK8 Essentially, you're using the graph that's representing your non-walkable areas to try and find a walkable path. That doesn't work. One way or another, you need to create a new graph for the walkable areas, where the non-walkable graph is used to construct that graph.

comment How can I develop an item Upgrade System?
You'll have to narrow the scope of the question. How to design an entire upgrade system is too broad. Further, we don't do solicitation for services or code here.
