Supercar Road Racer Flash Racing Game Car AI & New Video
At last I’ve managed to find some time to focus on Supercar Road Racer, after having to spend a couple of weeks on another project.
I’ve made some good progress putting the computer controlled cars and AI in. The cars now detect and navigate the track, without any predefined paths. It took some time to get it there, but other than a few minor glitches it’s working great. Basic overtaking has also been included, so the cars move around others to get past.
There’s still some tweaking to be done and a few more things to add yet. I’m quite conscious of making the CPU drivers too smart though. It would be really easy to overdo it and make them impossible to beat, so I’m planning on leaving a level of stupidity in the AI so they do make mistakes, crash etc.
I’d estimate there’s a good, solid 3 weeks work left before the game is anything like finished. I’ve got another project to juggle as well, so I may have to leave this alone again for a couple of weeks.
I’m hoping to be able to get to a point where I can post a playable alpha version of the game soon, just so you can have a go at racing one of the tracks. Look out for that in the next few weeks.
In the meantime, check out the new video above.
