Optimizing Sheep(from PC to iOS) and status progress update.

Posted by on

I have been adding sheep to Dragons High.

I began by adding 10 sheep to the PC build of Dragons High.
But then I thought "What if?" What if I would add a lot more sheep and see how it works?
Well here is the result of this experimentation:

As you can see, the PC can handle quite a lot of sheep and this is unoptimized code.

In order to have decent amount of sheep on iOS\Android I had to optimize the code.
I did optimize the code quiet a lot and the result was decent with a 100 sheep on my iPad 3 on retina resolution.
That is enough for now but there are more optimizations I intend to do in the future.

Apart from that I have added particles on iOS for the fire ball\projectiles.

Well that is the update, here are two screenshots of the latest iOS build:

sheep tend to flock so might be interesting to add some sort of grouping to make them seem less focused on running towards walls.

Currently there is only the flea behavior implemented.
I do intend to add more of a group behavior.
Maybe I should make a new video after I have implemented it.
