Post news RSS Devlog2 - Destroying blocks and collapsing!

A new Devlog showing off how the enemy destroys the environment, as well as some structural collapses. I also go a little into the Construction system, and why it's important.

Posted by on


So I'll clarify a bit here, since I only barely mention it in the video. Enemies don't simply attack objects they come into contact with. A wall, such as in the video, will have several pathfinding links going through it. These links will be of a Tunnel type. When an enemy gets to a Tunnel link (or any other construction type: bridge or ladder) instead of moving through it, it sends a ConstructionRequest to the game. The game then plans out what the tunnel will look like, and sends out a bunch of orders to different units to destroy or construct tiles.

Ok, so what's cool about this? Well, since I can easily edit the contents of this Tunnel plan, I can make it so that instead of JUST destroying the tiles, the enemy also replaces them with support tiles to prevent collapse. It's a pretty neat, robust, and flexible system. I'm excited to see how I can expand it to help create a better player experience.

Depends what game you're talking about, and what you mean by copy.

You can see blocks collapsing at 1:25. :) There will be more epic (and subdued, I won't discriminate) in the coming videos.
