Abstract [en]

This report is about the making of a very ambitious multiplayer strategy game. All games needs a name and after much thinking on different combinations of words from the almost obligatory latin language it was decided to name the game Armada Victor (AV). Armady Victor was entered in the Swedish Games Awards (SGA) yearly competition. A national competition for swedish students whose number of participants have grown over the years. The entity's description follows below:

”Armada Victor is a real time strategy game where you take on the role as the commander of an armada aboard the immense capital ship. The capital ship is your ship - lose it and you have been defeated. It is the only ship that may be controlled directly and with it is up to you to lead the way for the rest of your forces into triumph. The game is a multiplayer game which emphasizes offensive and tactical manoeuvres, instead of the resource managing and building more related to traditional real time strategy (RTS) games. Instead the armada is created and bought pre-game by an agreed number of points. The armadas selection ranges from fighters to heavy battleships and all manner of ships in between. With the help of boids (a behavioral model for flocking) and fuzzy logic all ships decides what their action will be depending on the situation. Cry havoc and let slip the boids of war!”

The game never got as far in its development as the description would suggest and was never completed in time for the competition. However the ambition to complete it as a fully playable game still exists.
