-I'm scrapping the old Basic AI testing interface and creating the entire system again from scratch. The old system and interface was
incomplete and buggy, I definately tried to rush through it and so with this new attempt I am being particularly meticulous in the system
design, programming, and also increasing the general readability and commenting within the source. A working alpha should be ready soon
(I'm alreayd deep into the coding phase) and will be posted in CVS, I'll put notification here and on the SF project page whenthe CVS module
-I'm encountering difficulties in the design process of the developing AI structure, mostly revolving around the basic method
that is going to be used for organizing the objects and how in-depth the objects should become. This relates more specifically
to decisions such as the breakdown of the brain and body (whether organs will actually be created as objects) and also whether
objects should be more focused toward a greater number of very specific, job oriented objects with large emphasis on communication
or towards large objects more focused on interpreting data. The final outcome would be the same either way once the structure is fully
developed but until then, this starting process will determine the speed and authenticity with which the structure is created.
-Development of developing AI testing interface has begun. I've decided that for this phase I'm going to try and mimic human processes
in and attempt tog ain a better understanding of how al the objects should communicate and interact. Not entirely sure yet, but it seems
that the structure of this will involve a great deal of inheritance.
-New pre-alpha releases in dAI_releases CVS module on sourceforge.
-Latest modules contain a different structure of how the objects are organized. I have ridden myself of a wretched number of pointers
(most notably the large 2D array of pointers to my AI objects which was used for the world) and replaced it all with a single object for
world AND (this is exciting for me) a linked list within the world object that contains all current AI objects. This large-scale modification
should allow for much greater expandability in the program.
