Extend Navmesh over grid cell borders in exteriors

how do i extend the nav meshes over grid cell borders in exteriors? they seem to hit an invisible barrier and i cant move em further... thx jaysus

Each exterior cell has its own navmesh. To see the boundaries, you can press 'B'. Hitting an "invisible barrier" when navmeshing an exterior cell just means you reached the border of that cell. To continue navmeshing past that boundary, create another navmesh in the neighboring cell. To connect a cell's navmesh to a neighboring cell's navmesh, line up the vertices on the border and go to Navmesh -> Finalize Cell Navmeshes. If your edges line up, a green line should appear in your navmesh. This means the cells' navmeshes are connected. For more information on navmeshing exteriors click here.
