[Advanced Pathfinding][GridMap] How to know on which cells body is standing?

BozonBozon Posts: 1Member

Hello! pls help.
I want to make RTS with a bit advanced pathfinding. For this, i am dividing map to small cells. So (I think) I need to know on which cells body is standing. Body may have any form (mountain range, wolf, house). And it may stand on few cells.
cannot figure it out. How to scan the map for this, efficiently? I can get only cell of body center.

    I have only one idea right now. Create trigger box for each cell and check for collisions. That will give me what i need, but my field is large (about 2500 - 10000 cells) so it seems like performance will be bad...

    Maybe a combination of the world_to_map function (documentation) and the get_cell_item function (documentation) would work?
