Field of View is working, and I now have a simple scripting engine to place prefabs:
It just places them in random positions, but I’ll soon be able to specify positional hints to the generator so things end up in the right place. There is also a template engine for generating names and other types of text. Here are some examples:
Full name: Harriet Santana
Full name: Lyle Berger
Full name: Eloise Delarosa
Full name: Phillip Combs
Restaurant name: Hanson's Family Restaurant
Building name: Fields Plaza
I plan on using these templates to generate basic NPC dialog, but I would much rather have GPT-3 or GPT-4 do the talking. Maybe we’ll get there, I don’t know yet, but the template-driven dialog should work fine for now.
Other than walking around, there’s not much you can do in the game, so I want to work on inventories and items now. Then I’ll work on NPC interactions and combat.
