Here are the answers to some common questions about the project:
1) What should I submit to Fenix?
To make testing your project more easily, please create a zip file with the whole unity project, not just the scripts. You should also add the "report" described below.
2) Shall I write a report about level5?
You should write
- a page including and commenting on 2 printscreens of Unity Profiler. The first one shows the method/methods you identified in the profiler as being the most relevant to optimize. The second shows the improvement in the performance of doing the optimization;
- a page comparing compare the performance of the different collision avoidance algorithms (RVO vs the other avoidance algorithms).
Using the current version of the RVO (and even the more advanced versions) it is really hard to ensure that there will never be any collisions when the number of moving characters is too big. It is up to each group to choose a reasonable balance between avoiding collisions and moving towards the desired destination.
Also take into account that you can use different weights (you don't necessarily have to, but it is an option) for avoiding the obstacles and avoiding other characters (in the RVO time penalty).
