Re: Habitat Wars [early stages demo]

Thanks for the feedback. I just figured out the A.I. as I went. It basically works off a combination of decision tree and "score the board" method. If you give it enough time it works out what it thinks is the best way it can finish it's turn (based on it's opinion of the board score) and traces how...

Habitat Wars [early stages demo]

Hi folks! I've been playing around with a card game (a rebrand of a format I've tried before). It's based on the idea of a war between habitats of creatures with a single player mode (vs A.I.) and a "pass and play" mode. As you complete a habitat you earn gold and unlock more cards to purchase, each...

Re: Understanding draw operations and transformations

Well, what I had in mind is that if you have 20 cards to draw and you need to switch canvas 20 times every frame, that is going to hurt performance. There's a lot of "it depends".

Re: Understanding draw operations and transformations

Thanks for the tip. I've begun trying to get my head around them but that drawback of not calling too often could be a challenge - individual components of the canvas may change frequently. I'm still a bit confused by love.graphics.draw to be honest. I'm getting some really strange behaviour. I thou...
