Activity 1: Calculate a Steering Vector Algorithm.
Calculate a steering vector by hand to help review the vector math that will be required to complete Activity 2 of this project.
Submit your hand calculations to the eCollege Dropbox for this assignment by the end of Week 3.
Activity 2: Design and code a steering algorithm class, then combine methods.
Step 1: For help, refer to Chapter 3.3 in the text. Create a method to calculate the steering force on an entity for each of the following movement algorithms:
Step 2: For help, refer to Chapter 3.4 in the text.
Create a Weighted Blending technique for combining the various steering algorithms coded above. The method should calculate the total steering force acting upon an AI bot.
Activity 3: Demonstrate the steering class created.
Using a graphical API (i.e. Microsoft Visual Studio), create a demo for the steering class created in Activities 1 and 2. The demonstration should have multiple AI entities undergoing multiple movement algorithms, as well as avoiding obstacles placed in the world.
