It’s update time, and although I’ve nothing suitable/visual to show there’s been a fair amount of progress on the Pilot NPC/AI code of late. I can confirm that I have now been attacked (and thoroughly ass-whooped) by a pack of… Read More »

(Ok, So not a Peter F. Hamilton novel – but it could have been, if he’d been a developer…) Since the last post, I’ve been slaving away ‘refactoring’ – yes, that developer exercise of making huge sweeping changes to the… Read More »

Ok, you’re not going to like this – but for all good reasons 🙂 This past week or more I’ve ploughed headlong into my ‘niggles’ list. What is this list you ask? Well, basically bugs that I’m too lazy(don’t have… Read More »

Phew! It’s been a big week for development in Dominium, so bear with me… Firstly, Insurmountable Odds is now back from it’s guaranteed-honest-guv last proof read. Wendy has spotted more minor errors which I’ll now clean up. I’ve also done… Read More »

I admit I have derailed myself somewhat from the NPC work of getting them to dock en masse, but trust me it’s worthy and with the best intentions at heart 😉 It’s all aligned to getting back to the NPC’s… Read More »

… well, they are on the way at least 😉 So the past week or so has been about the Non-player Character behaviours. The NPC’s are controlled by Finite State Machines at present, with basic state controllers which will grow… Read More »
