The Design and Implementation of a Generic A* Algorithm for Search in Multidimensional Space

Abstract [en]

New technologies enable the realization of game ideas that previously only could be implemented through significant effort. This paper presents the design, implementation and verification of a generic version of the A* pathfinding algorithm, with the capability to navigate in multidimensional space, thereby given a 5D sparse matrix, enabling the creation of 3D worlds in computer games that could be used to facilitate time-travel and travel between parallel universes in a straightforward fashion.
