Ready To Start Coding

Permalink 17:56:39, Categories: GSoC 2012  

Hello CrystalSpace,
A quick update and thank you to all who have helped me out the past couple of weeks. Thanks to the mailing list and in particular Christian's efforts I now have a fully compiled and up to date CS and CEL. I have refamiliarised myself with svn-merge.py (I typically use TortoiseSVN but wanted to stick to the tools other CS developers are using for this project), and with my code from the previous GSoC project on behaviour trees. I now feel ready and keen to start coding next week in time for the official start of GSoC.

I include below my proposed timeline and goals, with priorities labelled 1-3 with 1 being the highest:

-Update to event driven BTs (May 21st – July 1st)
(1) -- Focus on debug tools
(2) -- Allow all termination statuses
(2) -- Add load from XML option
(2) -- Create dedicated propclass (set root node, set update rate)
(1) -- Documentation

-Update to latest version R&D (July 1st – July 29th)
(1) -- Allow iPcSteer to use its methods
(2) -- Partial navmesh loading (with missing sector callback)
(2) -- Make navmesh creation parallel
(3) -- Improve function with portals
(3) -- Optimise debug mesh
(3) -- Optimise Terrain
(1) -- Documentation

-Improve life sim demo (July 29th - August 13th)
(1)-- Make behaviours work (perhaps requiring other new propclasses or
fixes to existing ones)
(1)-- Use new BTs and R&D
(1)—Tutorial/Documentation

During this time, I will have one significant break (as mentioned in my proposal) from June 2nd-12th when I will be attending a conference in Valencia. Other than that I am excited to be back and keen to get started :)
