Does its easy to make a strategy game in CC?

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Tue Apr 17, 2012 7:27 pm

I know you will say: "it depends from the experience", but I want to know your opinion about that kind of game making at all in CC. In Game Maker its complicated but Im going well for now. I wish to know what can I do with CC in that theme?

Thanks in advance.

It doesn't matter what you use, it's simply not easy to make a strategy game. It's one of the more difficult and complex genres.

That said, it's entirely possible to make a strategy game in CC, and some things are in fact made significantly easier, such as pathfinding with the RTS behavior, and target acquisition with the turret behavior.

Others probably disagree with me on this, but in construct the only "hard" thing to make in a rts is enemy AI.

Its actualy got to be one of the most complex AI systems for any game. having to behave almost identical to the player useing the same objects.

and arguably no game has done a "good" job of making a challenging ai without cheating.
------------------------
oh and you can't really use tile map's like every 2d rts you've probably ever played without a nightmare of rendering tiles but preserving edges for path finding.
so you'll have to build it with that limitation in mind.

and in-game menus are a pain, but that's true for any game in construct.

was actually thinking about releasing a series of tutorials on how to make a rts after i finish my next project. Bartosh2012-04-20 07:18:20

Thanks to the both of you. Your answers are very correct and I must agree with Bartosh for the AI part. Even in Game Maker this thing for RTS is.....hard. As I expected but I wanted to be sure about the answer.

Thank you again and have nice developing of your projects.
