The previous images show the minimap and map view zoomed at two different sizes.
The following image shows the visualization of the A* algorithm in action. for debug purposes each iteration of the algorithm is slowed down and the open set and closed set visualized as red and cyan tiles. The current node is depicted as the white tile. The red tile not attached to the blob is the goal node. The start node was the highest point inside the gray rock formation.
The following is the final path from the above visualized run.
