What's up with Me and the Micro 3D

[color=rgb(0,0,0)][font=arial]I've been away for some time now. A lot has changed since my last update. As I've said before, I used to teach English in Korea, but in April, my wife and I moved back to America. Now I've been trying to get back into the swing of things. I want to spend more time coding my game, and for a month, I did that, but since I need money for things like food and a place to live, I decided to get a job. Before I came back to America, I started doing some heavy networking and a 3D artist and designer that I've work with put my name into at this company M3D LLC which makes 3D printers. I've been working there for about 2 and a half weeks so far and like the startup environment. Everyone is very motivated and wants to put together a good product, but some the atmosphere is very relaxed. I guess that's what happens when you like what your doing. We joke around, talk, and do startup things like have barbecues. It's fun. It sometimes feels like a University of Maryland alumni meeting because almost everyone either graduated from UMCP (University of Maryland College Park) or is currently attending. I graduated from there in 2003. There's also an engineer who went to Yale. Yeah. He's pretty smart.[/font][/color]

[font=arial][color=rgb(0,0,0)]In my spare time, I still do Squared Programming stuff and continue to work on Auxnet. I've gotten a lot of work done on my AI system. For now I've decided to use a finite state machine as a low level framework of the AI system. I want to use the FSM system to develop more complex behavioral systems like planners, hierarchical FSMs, and behavior trees. The initial FSM system is done. Next I want to work on a navigation system that can be expanded to work with different algorithms and different kinds of maps. Then I'll add an extension to the system to allow state logic to be written in AngelScript. Once these things are done, I'll have a solid base. After that, I'll move onto other parts of the game like the animation and weapons systems. Once those are out of the way, I'll revisit the AI system.[/color][/font]

Welcome back, sounds like you've certainly had a lot of changes -- making 3d printers sounds pretty interesting!

Thanks. Making printer software is different from what I've done in the past, but it's good. I hope that I'love be able to put together a nice interface.
