Wall Tracing on Random Maps (rpg) by Pakz | No Votes
From the book ai for game developers
Written in
Highslide JS

I finally started understanding more things from a book I bought a couple of years ago(ai for game developers) One part in the book explains how to do Wall Tracing.
From the Rogue basin and other sources I started learning and understanding how to make random levels for rpg's and such. I combined the two things.

The code below is MonkeyX1. It creates random levels filled with a random number of entities that crawl across the levels. Based on time it creates and displays a new level. (space can also be used to create a new level)
The size of the levels is also random.

I'm glad you're learning all these little random-generation techniques.
I've found this kind of thing totally invaluable when doing AGameAWeek, as I rarely have the time to design levels, whilst cramming the game into such small spaces of time.
But even when working at a slower pace, it's still great to have this kind of randomisation within your games.

I'd love to see you tackle a nice big game, with this sort of thing.

I hope to create bigger games one day. But I am still having to balance between learning all the things needed for making games.

Making good graphics is something that I am way behind with. So it will most likely take me years before I make something big.

I hope to do a couple of hours of #spritesomething today. (Drawing more river fish )

Hi Pakz,
I am a fan of your code snippets. Found the coding train youtube channel from your tweets.

Do you have this book Source code found in

I have this book for the past 10 years, but not read it yet. Seeing your posts makes me want to read.

I got your pm, I answered there..

I also checked (just yet) for that book in my archives. I still had it but end of last year the ebook company (mobipocket) stopped or bankrupted so I am not able to open the book file anymore(encryption). I contacted the book seller where I bought the book to see if they can help me read the book file. Not happy now!

I payed 50 euro's for that book! Paper is so much safer!
