these past few weeks in the end of february have been so hard. Not with Summer Islands but rather with the work next to Summer Islands. Espcecially with the end of the Masterthesis. But now it’s over and we can focus on new features for Summer Islands!!!
In the last weeks we focused a lot on improving the AI. Summer Islands isn’t only focusing on your economy and the weather conditions. The AI must challenge you and you should consider carefully to build something next to the AI or when you attack the reputation of them. We wanna build a realistic AI.
So in the first steps the AI will analyse a small part of the map and will create a little base, like you would do. For these few functions there is already a lot going on on the AI. To be a realistic AI, first they must build a few buildings, rethink the area and so on.
On the client side we implemented a zoom function. With you mousewheel you can zoom in and zoom out to the point where you coursor is. Now you have the possibility to watch all the small movements, for example from the cyclist.
In the next weeks we try to implement some new features for the nature. It will probably change the complete look of the nature.
– AI Area Analysation
– AI small Base building
