CitylifeRealistic, Customizable City-Scale Simulation
CityLife is dedicated to moving beyond great tools for building AI from the ground up, to instead populating worlds with humans and animals largely automatically, showing a rich set of interactions and individual motivations.
PERFORMANT SIMULATION FOR LARGE NUMBERS
We use an advanced agent scheduling system to reproduce traffic at the scale expected of an urban city. Our agents follow individual schedules, and dynamically react when required - for example, if a player were to run into the road.
Our system also boasts support for a range of complicated road layouts - merging, intersecting lanes, forking and more.
Pedestrian and vehicle behaviour has been effectively replicated, allowing cars to follow the rules of the road such as speed limits and traffic signals, while pedestrians follow sidewalks and avoid one another.
Importantly, they will react to player involvement and flee from dangerous situations.
SCALABLE LEVEL-OF-DETAIL SYSTEM
We automate agent spawning based upon configurable LOD bubble and density settings - and always ensure that agents spawn with realistic initial positions and speeds.
Whole segment spawning populates entire roads and pavements as the player moves around the world, while boundary spawning maintains population by spawning agents into the LOD bubble at its boundaries.
