Building Perceptive AI in Unreal Engine
In this series I will be showing how to set up two different AI designs, one for a shooter experience, and one for a RPG style AI. We will cover blackboard and behaviour trees, EQS queries, and the AI perception component using sight, sound and damage stimuli.
The Shooter example will be a longer, slower example where we will explain everything as we go, and it will use sight and sound to give it elements of stealth AI, along with a working shooting system driven by the AI controller and it’s behaviour tree.
The Magic AI example will be a more concise, straight to the point demonstration of a different way of working compared to the shooter example, and we will utilise sight and damage stimuli to make a reactionary AI who is able to heal, cast spells, and teleport away from the user using a EQS query. This series also includes a large overview of the EQS system and how to many of the tests work.
