I have a map populated with entities controlled by GKAgents. The entities will seek targets, flee from others and perform other tasks.

Where I am getting stuck is that I would like the map to be spherical. I can think of two options to implement this:

  1. Since coordinates on a sphere have 2 dimensions, longitude and latitude, I could use GKAgent2D components then map them to the surface of a sphere in SceneKit. How can I subclass GKAgent2D and somehow transform the positional inputs and outputs to spherical polar coordinates?

  2. Alternatively I could use GKAgent3D components on the surface pf a sphere. How can I constrain the Agent’s behaviours to follow the surface of the sphere?

Finally, which of the above implementations would be more appropriate?

Cheers!
