Goal–Oriented Action Planning (GOAP) is an AI architecture that provides game characters with the ability to select goals and make plans to achieve those goals based on the state of the environment and available resources. It can be used across a wide range of game genres from first–person shooters to real–time strategies, to develop intelligent characters capable of making smart decisions without the need for large finite state machines. The codebase is deceptively simple and yet logical, reusable and extremely powerful. The library is written in C# and implemented in Unity V.2019, however will easily port to other applications.
In this course, Penny demystifies the advanced AI technique of GOAP used for creating believable and intelligent game characters in games using her internationally acclaimed teaching style and knowledge from over 25 years working with games, graphics and having written two award–winning books on games AI. Throughout, you will follow along with hands–on workshops designed to take you through every step of putting together your own GOAP API. You will build the entire GOAP library from the ground up while building a hospital simulation scenario in parallel, to test the API as you go.
