Discover advanced tricks using potential fields in this masterclass with Johan Hagelbäck. In particular, this session discusses the process of accelerating high-level pathfinding using reactive lookups, as well as improving low-level navigation in dynamic environments (e.g. crowds) using a similar approach. These potential fields are also applied to tactical maneuvers such as attacking from a distance, flanking, or avoiding fields of fire. Finally, the strategic component of potential fields is discussed too, including multiple objectives and state-based potential fields.
