Cosmopolis – Skirmish

Skirmish is a sub-game of Cosmopolis, a MMOG. The objective of Skirmish is to defeat your opponent by firing missiles at him to reduce his health to zero.

As a research student of the USC GamePipe Lab, I worked on the AI behavior tree and missile types of Skirmish. I developed a sequence of conditions that would trigger different actions from the AI. I also developed different types of missiles that have different functionalities: rocket missile, blaster missile, and heat seek missile.
