ERROR:Assets/Scripts/BirdMovment.cs(10,13): error CS0246: The type or namespace name `NavMeshAgent' could not be found.


I'm lost.

After writing:

using System.Collections; using System.Collections.Generic; using UnityEngine;

public class BirdMovment : MonoBehaviour {

private Transform target;

private NavMeshAgent birdAgent;
private Animator birdAnimator;

// Use this for initialization
void Start () {
    birdAgent = GetComponent<NavMeshAgent>();
    birdAnimator = GetComponent<Animator>();


// Update is called once per frame
void Update () {
    // Set the birds destination

    // Measure the magnitude of the nave mesh agents velocity
    float speed = birdAgent.velocity.magnitude;

    // Pass the velocity to the animator componenet
    birdAnimator.SetFloat ("speed", speed);


I get the error:

Assets/Scripts/BirdMovment.cs(10,13): error CS0246: The type or namespace name NavMeshAgent' could not be found. Are you missingUnityEngine.AI' using directive?

I noticed a pop up for a brief moment when returning to Unity to run the scene, and chose not to add the UnityEngine.AI. But I've looked around on google and I don`t know how to add that back into Unity. Or is that something that can be added? Or is the NavMeshAgent the issue?

Any help is much appreciated!

You can add another using statement, using UnityEngine.AI; just below the others.
