    When writing up basic enemy or NPC behaviors, what's the scenario you draft? Short of explaining the CODE you write, what CONDITIONS do you write to determine when your character does [this] or [that]?

    For example, I have NPC characters that will basically alternate between random times walking around and sitting at a desk. And then there will be limited conditions which will break from this back-and-forth system when they are alerted to something...but after a time will go back to their walking/sitting behaviors.

    I realize this may not be a very clear question, but I'm trying to gain a better understanding how to develop believable system of AI behavior.

    Daniel T. HoltzclawI know I'm reviving a post from months ago, but this is something I've been working on in my free time. I'm not a game developer, just a computer science student, but I really enjoy AI. One of my personal projects is to make a lightweight video game style AI based off a Finite-State Machine concept, multiple global conditions (including jobs, time, weather, and economy), and a social environment- with intentions to be used with a massive number of agents. That said, what I have right now is far from complete. My proof-of-concept was a very simple test of a static FSM for a person and his dog. The person (Dave) would go to work and go home depending on globally set hours. While he's at work or at home, Dave would randomly select possible activities from the pre-defined lists. Be it things like falling asleep on his keyboard or cheating on his taxes. Since it was a proof of concept, the ideas there are purely symbolic- this was all done as text in textboxes in WPF. They did not affect the character's mood in anyway. The only interactions available were when the character was at work and the dog could call him on a cell phone, and when Dave got home, it would notify the dog. This was a test of FSM and a Message-based interruption system. What I have planned for the characters in the future (right now I'm working on an intelligent planning system for worker characters in administrative positions): - Interactions with someone depending on their mood towards the other, and whether or not anyone is near. - What would improve the character's mood, be it coffee or a walk. - Any activities based off personal skills or character traits (an antsy person might pace and a social person may seek conversation). - How much of a workaholic they are. - What time of day. + And later I plan to add things like a fantasy environment where the conditions of an action are allowed to be more creative. There is a major performance drawback to this FSM system, though, so I'll adjust it in the future to be a little more CPU friendly. Let me know if this was anything near what you were looking to discuss

    Michael Samuel Miller JrVERY much near what I had in mind. I've since sought to completely revamp my gameplay features but a believable AI is still going to be needed.

    What do you all do when ya get an idea of a game and need to put it together. Sometime a little while ago I believe GOD gave me one, with visuals and ideas for it while resting one day but did not know what to do to get it started off. I'm a gamer but never dealt with making a game before. ... See MoreSee Less

    Matthew ColonWrite it down in detail immediately. I've had similar situations where a game idea had come to me literally in a dream, so I've written it down in my game design notebook for a day in the future when I can prototype it.

    Seth GuerraStart drawing your ideas. Never worry about if others can understand it. This is a reference for yourself. Get every detail necessary down and if you do need to present it foward you can make a better presentation AFTER you put down what is needed for yourself to remember how great your idea is.

    Bobby Anguloif it's visuals,mechanics, or concepts draw/write them somewhere and file then away to look back on. The same thing happened to me a little over a yr ago. So I looked into unity and unreal which are free for the most part. I taught myself how most of how the engine works. I started school for it this year and currently my idea is complete I am working on animations and putting the whole thing together. So if you feel God has given you the idea stick to it and do what you can and Im sure he will lead you to complete it 🙂

    Lawrence G WilliamsThanks for the response everyone, I wrote / drawn it all out but need to story board it like ya said before. The game is a mix of 3d / 2d, futuristic and fantasy style using scripture concepts. The game is based off scripture I was listening to and reading at the time. I realized some parts of it were new to gaming,that I haven't seen in gaming before but I don't play every game so not sure. Execution is a blend of old and new and its entirely none of my credit how it looks and plays, very unique. Problem is that I do not know how to code but can animate a little though I have no computer or tools to even start it. So pray in agreement I get them and more knowledge what to do and get. Thanks again for all your help.

    Samuel FreiholtzAs the other people here said; write down the ideas you got. It can take some time before you can realize the game. The best way to get started off is to learn the basics of programming and then get acquainted with a game developing engine that you think can realize your vision. Personally I use Game Maker Studio but this engine does not focus on 3D and you mentioned that you game should have this so perhaps another engine like Unity 3D is a better option.

    Was needing to get some creative juices flowing again - so I started a rough QuickSculpt last night. Wasn't quite sure where I was going with this bust - other than that I wanted a smiling character... it was quite an enjoyable process of feeling out what it would end up becoming. 🙂
