Steel Fury Dynamic Mission Generator...

Hey all...looks like there is more activity here than at the Lighthouse forums. Anyway, I'm developing a dynamic mission generator for Steel Fury w/ the Steel Panzer mod.

Basically, ALL units are available for placement and all of them are able to be randomly selected by faction and type. I have broken the factions into groups and divisions (multiple divisions per each group). The map and starting zones are static atm, but I am working on a simple zone generation function that will allow for multiple groups to be placed in random locations (within a reasonable distance from each other), and then will look into dynamic map generation.

I just got finished implementing a basic AI script generation function, so I was able to have some interesting skirmishes this evening. If anyone is interested, I'd love to have some input in the development, and maybe some testers in the next week or so. My current goal for the week is to have 2 mission types: Assault and Defend. Right now, I have been working on the assault portion, and it is coming along nicely. Essentially, this game has the most powerful scripting engine that I have seen in any game, so the possibilities of mission generation are almost limitless.

Okay guys, breath some life into SF - the man says he needs testers, so sign in!

Sorry Voyd, I am not playing SF myself, else I would be the first to join. Good luck with that mod. A generator like that always is welcomed for any game.

Voyd, I've posted this over on Is this mission generator a stand alone app or will it be available as an ingame menu item?

This is a standalone app (written in VB.Net (.Net 3.5)). I just tab back and fourth between the game and the generator. I've been working on the GUI here at work (one of the perks of being a programmer ), but will crawl back under the hood after I get home.



P.S. Thanks for posting it!!

P.S.S. Glad to have you aboard, Sledgehammer.

Count me in! I'm drunk right now, so forgive me if I'm short. I make a living implementing software and wrote business software once.

Let me know what service I can be.
