A Block Battle

I’ve been looking at improving the sunspear AI this weekend (making it attack things that aren’t imaginary for example). Here’s a video of three of them attacking a player controlled vehicle.


3 verses one was never really going to go very well, still got 1 one of them!

You’ll probably have noticed the next item for improvement; the AI doesn’t 100% care about the ground, or trees, or other AIs and will happily crash into anything that isn’t its target.

You’ll see none of these ships are shielded, that’s deliberate, I’m making shield blocks very heavy so that you end up with a choice; heavy and shielded or light, maneuverable but vulnerable.

I’d like to end with a video of me actually winning, but well, this is the closest I ever got
