What third party tools and components are available for Unity?

I only recently found out about the Unity Dialog Engine. What other third party tools and components are there available for Unity? Are they free, commercial or open source? How well supported are they?

Pathfinding and Behavioural logic, you should check out Path and Behave. Both solutions work on indie and pro Unity and in webplayer and stand-alone.

They are available on a show-logo license and alternatively a paid license. Example projects with all source and resources are also available for both projects.

For steering AI, UnitySteer would be your match - a port and adaption of OpenSteer, this open-source project will run on any configuration - in any Unity version. This project also comes with examples. OpenSteer is open source on an MIT license.

cross reference. For own thread on pathfinding see: http://answers.unity3d.com/questions/9025/pathfinding-tools-in-unity.html (sorry, haven't checked if there's anything new in this link, just for convenience...) Greetz, Ky.

For networking you can take a look at the SmartFoxServer API for both regular Unity as well as iPhone. The Unity API comes with 4 tutorial projects, sources for the tutorials as well as the API itself.

You will need both a server (found here: www.smartfoxserver.com) as well as the client API for Unity (here: http://www.smartfoxserver.com/labs/API/)

Thanks Jens, I was unaware that the external lightmapper had been released. I'm very much looking forward to the cutscene editor as well.
