Hello guys! First of all, I hope you can understand my English even with mistakes. I was looking for a free script or tutorial on making an AI traffic system on Unity. There are some tips and tricks out there, but it is very hard to get things done. Waypoints placed manually... Oh, no! This is so time consuming... All the best methods for placing AI cars into your projects were paid... As an indie developer, I don't have enough money to buy that expensive systems. Some cheap code I have tried was difficult to work with... So... 2 years later... I'm making my own AI system for Unity now! I think I'll be making something different: this will be OPEN SOURCE and FREE FOR EVERYONE. But I need some help... Check some progress for the last 2 weeks (please note that those AI cars WON'T be available, they were bought on Asset Store for my own game; you will have to use your own cars): My system can handle LOTS of cars on PC! I'm looking for new freelance jobs here where I live, I need money and want funding for my game, as everyone else... So... How about making some money with a system that I love? I believe that I can sell my script (once finished) for $100 (it's easy to use, lightweight and works almost automatically, and will come with some road pieces). But I want to help other indie devs too, and I love open source software... I think I'll be making a crowdfunding campaign for this project. If you like and use it, would you pay me something? You put the price. I really need money nowadays to work 24/7 on this project, but I don't want to sell this code. I believe that making it available as open source software is the better thing to do, since there is NO free alternative yet (if there is some... I did not find it!). By being open source, more people will improve it and everyone else will enjoy the finished project! I'm making this mainly for my own projects, which includes driving in busy cities - a bus simulator, truck simulator, cars... etc. My system is good for any driving game and open world like GTA style. My AI traffic system will be very good at its key features: * Fast and lightweight code. I don't have plans to move the cars using physics for performance reasons. And even better, with kinematic movement, all the objects will follow all the paths, with no strange behavior caused by collisons. By the way, once released, you will be able to use physics if you want. * My system can handle LOTS OF CARs. Bring your cities to life!!! It's so boring when you have a road with no car... I want to make some real roads where the player will be around with 500+ detailed AI cars. * Unlike other other AI traffic systems, my AI scripts will be very easy to use! Just place the roads and intersections, set your own cars and the AIs will appear automatically! Of course you can disable auto spawn, spawn custom AIs at desired places (like buses or trains), change the max amount of cars on the scene... And so on... Using my road prefabs and vertex snapping you can put your work on making your levels. It will be easy to make your own roads and crossings/junctions too! You may use prefabs, or put the paths directly on terrain or any other road system!!! Since I don't use physics to move the AI, I hope this works for trains, airplanes, ships, planets... * There will be traffic lights! (almost done) * There will be pedestrians and sidewalks! (not coded yet, but it will be the same for cars, bicycles, etc) * There will be right and left turns! (not coded yet) * I hope there will be indicator lights on cars (not coded yet). I plan to release a preview in some weeks or months, depending of what progress I achieve. I really love this system. It would be nice if can work on it 24/7 while I don't earn money with my games. I want money to fund my own bus simulator, it's an old dream. I make mods for OMSI, a german bus simulator, but it is closed and has many open bugs... So I started making my own project. I need money also to buy new hardware and some assets on the Asset Store for my games - like cars, buildings, low poly people etc. It's about one helping each other. I help you with my AI car system. You help me with some money... What do you think? If you want you may wait a beta, so you can try my code and see the results. My AI script is very promising. I'm in love with this!!! If you can pay $30, that will be ok; if you can pay $100, ok! That's good! If you really like the project and make money with your game where my code takes special place, please make a donation to help me with my other projects. It's not about selling here, it's about helping each other. As I said, I will launch this project even for people who can't pay, to help indie devs. Once they were making some money with their games, they can retribute me. I hope. Some details are here at my blog, in Portuguese: http://www.explorando.com.br/mep-ai-traffic-unity/ I'll be making some videos in English to show how to use my system. It is a very basic thing, but as I saw no one yet had put it together into a FREE, FULLY AUTOMATED AI CAR/BUS/TRAIN SYSTEM. What do you think? Any feedback is welcome!
