As part of the Light Racer 3D Development Journal, I made this video showing the finished power line map objects. I added public domain sounds to them and the collision detection is all in place now. The Light Racer 3D Development Journal – www.rbgrn.net
As part of the Light Racer 3D Development Journal, I made a video showing the game running with the in-development Medium AI. The AI does nothing but go north because there is no path-finding algorithm implemented yet. Instead the screen is overlayed with AI visual debugging info, which is to show that the game world has been turned into large tiles. The tiles are necessary to compute a path in a reasonable amount of time. The tiles are calculated every time the AI is updated, which is 10 times per second for each AI Player. This means they must be calculated very quickly. This algorithm runs usually around 4ms, which is ok for us. The Light Racer 3D Development Journal – www.rbgrn.net

As part of the Light Racer 3D Development Journal, I made a video showing the game running with the first try of Medium AI with debugging turned on. Medium AI works by tiling the world, then applying an A* Pathfinding algorithm to try to get in front of the opponent. It's a little buggy but this isn't too bad for a first try.
