New demo AI testing. Taking on the 300 bot swarm.


I have been working to improve the AI of the demo. The bots (enemy ships) now have increased weapons (bullet) velocities and bots also have increased speed. The bots now only move or turn when they have a clear line of sight on the player ship. I have also increased the AI efficiency so now all 300 bots can be in view and battling. The AI tracking has been improved and the bots accuracy increased.

In this video you can see me take on a massive 300 bot swarm. I will include an option so that you can take on the bots in the same manor. I will be posting a new demo version and patch for those who already have a copy of the current demo here in a couple of days (by this weekend).

The current demo of Phoenix USC is available here. If you have an AI preference please let me know in comments.

As a user of BlitzMax, it is definitely one of my favorite languages out there. The Eschalon Book 1,2 and 3 were written in BlitzMax for a nice little showcase for it. Definitely depends on your end target though.

If you don't have an account, I'll answer it for you. Yes you can, But you would have to know how to read and write files.
