Types of AI

You now probably have a pretty good idea of what AI is. So let's focus for a while on what you can do with it. More specifically, we will talk about the role(s) of AI in gaming. Here are some of the major uses of AI in games today.

Pathfinding. This is one of the biggest topics for game developers, especially those who are new to AI. Pathfinding is the act of finding a path between one point and another. In a game like Diablo (or in our example iso_world.fla file from the last chapter), you click to walk to a location. If there is an object in your way, then you walk around it. In most advanced games of this sort, the entire path that you will walk is calculated at the moment you click (rather than as you walk).
