AI and LOS overhaul complete
Posted 13th Mar 13, by Rick Shaw  
I have overhauled the AI and line-of-sight calculations. This has reduced slowdown by orders of magnitude- whereas before it could support maybe 4-5 characters on screen with noticeable slowdown, I can now have 10-12+ characters without a hit to the FPS.

This is incredible!

Also, the guards are much much smarter now and behave a lot more like they should.

Basically, I have no more reservations about the game, and I'm just trying to finish it up and get it out at this point.

I check TDC every day in case one of my favourite projects has been updated, and this is one of them. I simply cannot wait! Good to hear about the optimization... surely only good things (ie. more intense missions) can come of it!

Second what Rick says - I'm glad this is still being pushed forward and look forward to a release.

Good work on the engine improvements - it'll certainly open a few doors in level design!
