The Sims Medieval

The Sims Medieval is a stand-alone game based on the tech from The Sims 3. It is a medieval fantasy simulation game where you play as a hero who goes on quests, collects treasure, and lives in a medieval kingdom. It takes the open world simulation game of The Sims 3 and adds a whole new layer of quests and jobs.

My specific duties were:

  • Worked on AI systems.
  • Helped take the open, sandbox game of Sims 3 and allow Sims to be controlled by designers for quests, work, etc. while still retaining the look & feel of a sandbox game.
  • Worked on system for balancing the number of NPCs in the world by bringing in new sims and pushing out old ones as needed.
  • Worked on a number of new sleep & bed features.
  • Wrote several new traits.
  • Worked on the Sim creation & destruction code and the glue between the C++ engine code and the C# gameplay code.
  • Helped optimize the AI code.
