Common Goals – Applications of GOAP to Real Time Strategy AI

Overview: 

The Real Time Strategy (RTS) genre is one which focuses on the optimal management of resources and territory. These aspects add significant depth to the genre, but also render it wholly inaccessible to a large portion of gamers. The proposed solution incorporates multiple standard artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to interpret player commands into actions, which in turn can be used to collaboratively solve strategic problems. Using the proposed technique, a set of artificial intelligence agents were able to move in a unified formation and delegate appropriate tasks to one another. While the framework has yielded successful results, it requires additional optimization in order to be a viable option for mainstream RTS design
