A while ago I spend a lot of time trying to understand blackboard mechanics.
But I feel like I forgot it all already, so I started pondering about what I could do to keep all this information locked up and ready to go in that big grey mass I call my brain.
So I figured, why not create a blog I can revisit to keep track of things I have done and have yet to do.
“New Purgatory City” is the name I gave my little project.
I intend to make a small city filled with humanity at it’s “finest”. Just your regular city sim where you watch people go about doing their thing.
To spice it all up. I’m gonne introduce zombies and vampires. Each with their own infection and fatality rates.
And once my little town goes to hell I might even add some demon slaying priests.
Maybe I’ll even make it playable…
Today I intend to block out a little box, make a material instance for “Manny Quin” and have my npc’s run about.

- Material Instance - Made a Material Instance from the mannequin material, used linear color variables to set color based on race - https://s31.postimg.org/ct3yx5ivb/Knipsel.png
- Random Move To AI - Decided to use a behaviour tree and blackboard nothing fancy
