I need to create a small battle scene with 3 vs 3 starships for about 1-2 minutes. Sure I could "script" it in 3D Max, but this will take too much time and won''t be expandable for further reuse, so I thought about using AI to control them. Unfortunately, I don''t know how to make action spectacular. So maybe anyone could share his expirience of creating star-bots or give a link? I''ve been doing some evolution of NNs, but there seem to be no "spectacular" score to evolve.

Look into flocking. This simulates flocks of bird/ants/humans. If you use ''directed'' flocking, you could steer some ships towards the enemy. When they get close enough, tell them to fire.

I don''t know if this will work perfectly with a 3 vs 3 battle. Maybe you could try it with 10 vs 10 first.
