  • Core MechanicMajor source of lost point on Quiz #2Many problems with project milestone #3

  • ReviewCore mechanic analyzes low-level activity of the playermechanic physicsmechanic missionsmechanic player knowledgeI can have games with similar physics and missions but different mechanicsPac-Man vs Katamari Damacy

  • Example

  • SimulationGames simulate real-world activitiessports gamesracing gamesCentral ideamapping between the game and the real-world activity

  • Simulation IIGames also simulate fantasy and fictional activitiesany RPGmost FPSCentral ideamapping between the game and...

  • MappingThe mapping will be incompletethe game may leave out inconvenient or boring partsthe game may include improbable situations for gameplay reasonsThe mapping will be inexactthe game may exaggerate the physics for effect or gameplaythe game may (will) abstract from physical reality for practical reasons

  • Basic factAll physics is simplificationcomplex multi-body physical simulations are too slowreality is chaoticlimits to what can be rendered graphically

  • Example: HaloWhat happens when a grenade explodes?do we simulate the ignition and rapid oxidation of explosives, pressure waves, metal shear and shrapnel trajectories?do we simulate concussion injuries, soft tissue damage, and bone trauma?

  • Game physicsPhysics = the evolution of the game statewe want the player to feel as though there is a real world in the gamethe game state must be complexits evolution must seem naturalthe player's control over it should seem natural

  • Natural?Games are profoundly unnaturalAliens? Psychic powers? Controlling a civilization over centuries?As in fiction"willing suspension of disbelief"natural within the game world contextGame physicsmay have nothing to do with Newton's physics

  • ScriptingWhen there is a fixed stereotyped response to an action in the gamewe say it is "scripted"As opposed to "simulated"

  • ExampleDesigner decides what should happen when a grenade explodesx amount of damage to all units within certain radiusx/2 damage within a larger radiusleaves a certain "stencil" on the floor or wallSimplifying the actual physics

  • ExampleLocked door in ZeldaIf player ties to go through locked door with key in inventory, the door opens and key is used upSimplificationsDoors are logical, not physical barriersCannot be battered down, blown up, removed from hingesLocks cannot be picked

  • Advantages of scriptingMuch, much fasterto apply a simple rule than to run a physical s
