Contribution

As programming lead, my contribution to the team was split between creating the procedural generation system for cities and assisting with various gameplay systems throughout the team. Lots of my time was also put into various aspects of system design for the handling / interaction system, as it was a critical feature of our game and required a very clean and modular design to work flawlessly with the many other systems that relied on it in throughout development.

Working within all disciplines, I created our procedural generation system. Using a unique method of generation, I was able to provide designers with the ability to modify the generation method to their desire. Implementing A* pathfinding also provided a means of creating paths throughout our city for mission. Finally, incorporating our AI system to work flawlessly around the city. Overall, this system taught me a lot about multi-disciplined pipelines
