Using Unity 2022.3 LTS? Navigation has been moved to a package!

Started the course using the new Unity 2022.3 LTS, and at this lesson, I couldn’t follow the tutorial, because there was not “Windows / AI / Navigation” menu in my Editor.

In Unity 2022.3, AI Navigation has been move to its own package, that needs to be installed before using the Navigation system.

What you need to do is go to “Windows / Packages”, and look for and install the “AI Navigation” package. Once installed, you will be able to see a new option “Windows / AI / Navigation”

A few more changes. In the Navigation panel, there’s no tab for “Bake” anymore. How to proceed:

  • Select your Terrain object in the scene hierarchy.
  • Add a component “NavMeshSurface”.
  • Now in the component, there’s the old panel for “bake”… with the button for “Bake” and create the NavMesh.

Hope this helps in the future!


Thanks for that, MrRudicius. I’m going back to re-learn how to work with nav meshes again, and this threw me for a minute.

This was a great post. Thanks for the heads-up!

Thank you!

Thank you very much!!! :grinning:
