Networking: Team Tanks

Date: April 2016
Concept: two players operate a tank together
Team: Solo
Platform: Windows
Engine: Unity Engine

Role: Programmer

Extra Notes:
This was the final project for an Networking course.
The Assignment: create a networked game environment
What I developed: To add something extra, I decided to do a cross platform networked game.
A PC would act as server with two players: a player on the PC server and a player on
an iPhone using Google Cardboard.
Player 1 on the PC moved a tank around the environment and had a good clear view.
Player 2 on the iPhone using Google Cardboard moved the tank’s turret by turning the
phone to look in another direction. By tapping on the screen, the player could fire a
projectile into the scene.

AI Driving

Date: December 2015
Concept: Driving around a track by AI
Team: Solo
Platform: Windows
Engine: Unreal Engine

Role: Programmer

Extra Notes:
This was the final project for an AI course.
The Assignment: create top-down 2D view of a car driving along a vertical line. Provide
input controls that allow you to shift the car right or left and use a Fuzzy Logic
Controller to control steering the car back to the vertical line.
What I developed: To add some extra challenge to my assignment, I took the 3D car driving game
sample from Unreal Engine and spliced in an AI controller in place of the input
controls. I then created the Fuzzy Logic Controller supported with automated tests (so
I could modify the FLC if needed later with confidence) and gave it to the AI Controller.
