Unity Artificial Intelligence Programming – Fifth Edition

Hey, everyone. As you know, I am not particularly present recently (I need to find out how to handle this blog while my interests spread out on non-technical stuff, but this is something for another time).

However, I am back with an announcement: I have recently published the fifth edition of Unity Artificial Intelligence Programming.

Not only have I updated the book for Unity 2022, but the book is also a massive improvement over the last edition in terms of code quality and consistency (and I really need to thank Kazimieras Mikelis for the extensive and detailed review). Moreover, I added a chapter on Procedural Content Generation because it is my main interest, of course.

Let me know what you think and what you would like to see in a future edition (I am planning a complete rewrite from scratch).
