In Topic: Simulating units 'flooding' a door

10 May 2013 - 09:25 AM

Steering... exactly what I was looking for.


To clarify what I mean about the A* grid is that since the maps are dynamically changed I need to discover the best path to the target, so using A* to get a 'map' of the best path I can use steering to guide all the units along this route.


Really appretiate this guys, thanks a million.

In Topic: When to start planning Kickstarter

17 September 2012 - 11:20 AM

These are both great answers,and both close to what my own thoughts are, but it's good to get a confirmation of that other people thinks.

I am currently alone on this project, which is ok for now, and I will probably look to gamedev.net/help wanted to find someone to go from dev release to alpha or something.
But as a person who has family and fulltime jobs,getting a kickstarter-kickstart would mean going from a cruddy-type indie release, to a more polished indie :)

But again thank you for the good advice.

In Topic: What math formula to use?

Exponential functions are exactly what I am looking for when calculating addons on weapons.

And just as excellent, Gustavef's method fits perfectly into my xp<>level calculations.

So now im upper happy.

Thanks to both of you :)

In Topic: Need a mentor?

I just wanted to applaud you on your idea. There are lots and lots of developers starting out and who needs to get the right mindset you need to developer software, be it games or tools.

I hope you find someone to mentor, someone who understands and appretiates the valuable asset a mentor is, and that you find it gives you something in return.

In Topic: Help me structure a database for my game

31 October 2009 - 01:01 PM

You can easily manipulate the order of the stats

Give the table names in my previous post you can call:

SELECT player.* FROM player
JOIN stat on stat.playerid = player.id
order stat.goals desc;

That call will return all users ranked with most goals first, the sinking.

Honestly I think you should consider getting a book, or spending some hours on databases, because the query above, with 10,000 users in the database, the query can take 0.001 second to complete if you have the correct indexes, and 10 seconds if you don't know how.
