Hello kind reader,
I’m really busy with WPF at the moment. I have found the book from Teach Yourself series pretty helpful for the most part. At least it was with the more basic stuff, but maybe around lesson 16 it started to show that as the subjects discussed go a bit deeper a one hour lesson is just not enough to discuss them in a satisfying manner. It’s not really the writer’s fault I guess, they did a pretty good job but as someone said: “The .NET is truly vast and infinite.”
I’m also working on reviving my C++, since it’s really rusty. I wanted to do it anyway but it will be useful for SimpleSteer as well since I will be able to read and understand C++ steering implementations much better.
So I will finnish the rewrite I started maybe this weekend. From there the next update will probably take a long time, but I will be trying to make a steering pipeline thing since in the demos it seems to work really very well. The other thing I need to learn more about is RVO. RVO stands for relative velocity obstacle (I think) and that’s currently all I know. It has something to do with collision avoidance with dynamic obstacles but I don’t even know if it’s just a fancy name for the same algorithm I use.
Anyway here is a contact manager WPF application. It’s one of the examples in the book. If anyone tries it if it works I’d appreciate it. download link
