2024-01-12 - Live Stream - Simple NPC AI

Join me tonight at 9PM GMT-5 as I try to breathe a little life into the quest-giver NPCs and lay the foundation for interacting with the player.

“Interacting” in the sense that they will change their AI behavior while talking to the player. Someday they may also nod their heads with dialog, move their hands, etc… but tonight I’ll be laying the signaling groundwork to at least make them stop random walking during the conversation.

It’s weird that the forum doesn’t update the time when I edited the above… must be a threshold for which it just bundles it as part of the original post.

(Half the reason I edited it was to get it to sort ahead of the name change on last week’s thread… hopefully this comment will do that.)

There’s a (default 5 min) grace period, colloquially known as a “Ninja edit”. It does have a max diff, so you can get away with fixing typos, but adding a paragraph will trigger a revision marker.

I did add a whole paragraph. Anyway, now the extra traffic is sure to sort it higher. :slight_smile:
