Adventure Game #001: Waypoint Traversal

Way-points have always seemed to be an important part of gaming; traversing a unit through a path, patrolling an area, etc. Project and Source downloads are at the bottom of the post.

I started this post with what I thought was a well rounded and defined goal. As I moved forward with the code I thought "Hey, it would be cool to do this and add that". after going around and tripling my scope I decided to pair the features down to the basics: Moving to Random way-points and Traversing a way-point list in order. All other code was shelved for a part 2 and 3 (Reversing Direction, Shortest Paths)

I set forth with the idea to have unique customization events happen to each individual object traversing and with that in mind each unit contains the follow options:

 eWaypointAction {TraverseNext,Random}
eWaypointStartAction { TraverseNext, Random }
eWaypointIntermediateAction { TraverseNext, Random }
eWaypointEndAction { Destroy, GoToStart, Random }
eWaypointState { WaitingForPoints,…

Adventure Game #000: Testing

First post for testing.

I am a Computer Science graduate from the University of Washington turned indie developer. My goal is to create a Module built adventure game piece by piece and document the process with the hopes to help someone in the future. I have been part of several game projects including Defense of AllendaGhostlight Manor, and GoArmy Edge Football

Here we go!

Thank you for checking out my page, I intend to post every 1-2 weeks on a new part of my adventure game.

For now, here is a sneak peak at my first Adventure Game post (Waypoints)
