Formation change and avoidance

We implemented a few formations for group of three and tried to change between these formations, however we haven't implemented colliders yet, so the agents will at times move through each other while changing formations.

Then we tried to implement some avoidance and change of formation depending on the obstacle. We used Unity's raytracing method to check it there is obstacle's infront the group. It didn't work as we had imagined, and it somehow looks like it only works for the first raycast (leader's raycast). For improvement, we might try some colliders instead of raycasting.

The video above is a hard-coded version of the raytracing method.
