How about doing one of those things at a time instead of trying to combine them all into one master project?

In Topic: Design a game that is good for a neural network

04 April 2015 - 09:00 AM

I agree with everyone else that you are:


  1. Doing it backwards by choosing a game to match the algo
  2. Putting the word "good" in the wrong place... i.e. "a game that is good for a neural network". In theory, you could have a very, very simple game that NN could solve. However, it would likely be a pathetic game. It is very likely you will achieve the different goal of designing "a good game that a neural network can solve."

If you are just trying to learn how to do a NN, don't design a game. Use something standard.


When you are done, put NNs behind you and concentrate on doing AI with other algos that have far more application in game AI.

A pathfinding solution would know there is another door. A purely steering based solution (which this is) has no knowledge of environment that it can't immediately throw a raycast off of.

Or just use a freaking influence map and be done with it.

In Topic: Are there any books with open source code of famous games?

12 March 2015 - 12:32 PM

Wikipedia has a compiled list of commerical games that have released their source code. 



Odd that Civ IV isn't on that list. I swear I was futzing around with that a few years back.
