🤖Use of artificial intelligence

In our game, we utilize AI to enhance the gameplay experience by creating intelligent Non-Player Characters (NPCs) that actively engage with players. Developed in Unity, our battle royale-style FPS game employs AI algorithms for various aspects of NPC behavior.

1. Navigation and Pathfinding: We leverage Unity's built-in tools like NavMesh and Pathfinding to enable NPCs to efficiently navigate the game world. These tools generate navigation meshes and calculate optimal paths, allowing NPCs to intelligently move around the environment, avoid obstacles, and engage with players effectively.

2. Combat Behavior: Our NPCs are equipped with AI-driven combat behavior that actively responds to player actions. They analyze the surroundings, identify potential targets, and make real-time decisions on when to attack, retreat, or seek cover. By considering factors such as proximity to enemies, available weaponry, and health status, NPCs engage in dynamic combat scenarios to challenge players.

3. Decision-Making and Tactics: Our AI system empowers NPCs with intelligent decision-making capabilities. They evaluate factors such as player positions, available resources, and the overall game state to strategize their actions. NPCs employ tactics like ambushes, area defense, and coordinated attacks to maximize their chances of survival and eliminate opponents efficiently.

4. Machine Learning and Adaptive AI: To create more dynamic and challenging NPCs, we employ machine learning techniques. Through methods like reinforcement learning, our NPCs can learn and adapt their behavior based on player interactions and gameplay data. This allows NPCs to continually improve their skills and provide a greater challenge to players over time.

5. Team Coordination: In our battle royale setting, NPCs not only engage players but also collaborate with other NPCs as a team. Our AI system facilitates team coordination, enabling NPCs to communicate, share information, and plan synchronized attacks. This adds depth and realism to the gameplay as players face organized and strategic NPC teams.

6. Difficulty Levels: To cater to players of different skill levels, our AI system offers adjustable difficulty levels for NPCs. Casual players can face NPCs with more forgiving behavior, while experienced players seeking a challenge encounter NPCs with advanced tactics and superior combat skills.

By actively incorporating AI into our NPCs, our game provides engaging, unpredictable, and challenging gameplay experiences in the battle royale deathmatch mode. The AI algorithms and techniques we employ contribute to creating intelligent opponents that react realistically, adapt to changing circumstances, and ensure an enjoyable gameplay experience.
