 Post Topic: Maximium amount of AI active?
PostPosted 18.08.2011, 23:40 
What's the max amount of AI that can be active at one time? I know its gotta be higher than 15. I just wanna know the limit if anyone knows.

Thanks in advance!

I know you can add tons, but not all of them are active when the game is running it seems. Some will perform actions while others are delayed in theirs. :unsure:

I think it depends on the platform you are playing on but a safe bet is 12-16. Maybe for PC you can go higher; the real limit is your framerate. Is your framerate ok? Yes. Then you can add more:). But you need to keep in mind that it should be tested when all AI is firing and all particles are on screen, etc.

Okay, umm ... well the most I've used was about 25-30 AI in combat, I could probably go higher. So the limit is basically whatever any single persons machine can handle?

If you're looking into larger amounts of active AI, you'll want to roll your own (less complex) AI scripts.

If the re-spawn worked in the new editor, you wouldn't have to worry about the limit, as you should be able to just re-spawn for example 5 or 10 AI indefinitely, but this is not working properly at the moment, nore is the T/W in pure game mode, why do you want to spawn so many AI anyway?

Looking closer at statements made by the cry engine team, even though i had 175 ai running unless there all active there is no way to tell till you crash, but with decent setup think you could have at least 100 if setup to only be active within certain area's. The crytek guy said about 15 but i ran a test earlier where at least 60 actors were in a firefight at the same time and no issue. The engine is a learning process for me so can't say for defo

This is good news, we will need a lot active AIs in our game. On what setup did you run 175 AIs?

Hi janpec, ati hd 5850, i5 4gb ram. Did a little test today of AI in full on war but had to reduce the AI down to 130 ish to stop the editor crashing out, fun little vid though. Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFwR-Wy9IuE
