Daedalus Lib

8 posts in this topic

Hi.

 

I would like share some previews of a library I currently develop: Daedalus Lib.

 

daedalus_banner.jpg

 

It is a complete solution of pathfinding. From environment modelisation with dynamic constrained Delaunay triangulation to efficient and accurate pathfinding with A* and funnel algorithms. Daedalus doesn't need any pre-generated datas, all occur in runtime. It also include tools for group pathfinding and field-of-view.

 

Short introduction to Daedalus Lib

 

Demo video 1 : dynamic pathfinding in dynamic environment

Demo video 2 : dynamic pathfinding in dynamic environment

Demo video 3 : group pathfinding in dynamic environment

Demo video 4 : field of view in dynamic environment

 

Demo video 5 : pathfinding benchmark

Demo video 6 : triangulation benchmark

 

If you have some suggestions or ideas.

Yes. Before I need to use it in a few small projects to check if the API is good and to to implement some first high level behaviors for NPC based on Daedalus.

 

Do you feel that Daedalus could be useful for one of your project ?

The C++ translation will come one day, but is not the priority. Sorry to not help you for your project.

 

I would like to do things faster, but sadly today I have zero sponsor.

AS3 as in ActionScript or AngelScript? If ActionScript.... well I didn't know people were still making Flash games....

ActionScript.

 

Yes Flash is still used by many companies making games on Facebook and targeting mobile devices. In addition, most of AAA titles use Flash through the Scaleform plugin.
