Join Dan Violet Sagmiller for an in-depth discussion in this video To base or not to base, part of Build a Real-Time Strategy Game with Unity 5.
- [Voiceover] The Ai will need to know…if it should create a base or not.…Starting with the obvious, is there enough money…and does it even have a drone to build a base?…It'll determine if a base is needed.…For instance, if you have no base,…it's pretty important to build one.…If you do have one, do you have enough units…to make another base useful?…So, to get started, I'm going into the Scripts folder…and then the Ai folder.…In the Ai folder, I'm going to right click…and create a new script called CreateBaseAi.…
Now, you may have noticed that all of my support…classes are prefixed with Ai,…and all of the ones that actually represent…intelligence are post-fixed Ai.…I only made this distinction in order to separate…the importance of what type of object it is.…So, now I want to edit the CreateBaseAi.…In the CreateBaseAi, the first thing I'm going to do…is turn it into an Ai Behavior.…Next, I'm going to get rid of Start and Update.…I don't need those but since it is an AiBehavior,…I will need to override the GetWeight and Execute.…
