Heh, thanks ;)

Well, it's an interface to the simple implementation of an AI behavior
tree. The whole model is written in C++ while Lua is used as a
declaration language for tree composition. PARAL - is a block where
nodes are executed in parallel until one of them completes, SEQ - is a
block where nodes are executed one after each other until one of them
fails. There are a few more core building blocks like for example
selectors, sort of a switch/case construct.

By the way, I'm thinking how to get rid of ADD constructs using
LuaMacro since they are redundant. So instead of:


It could simply be:

There is a great site with LOTS of information on AI and
behavior trees in particular. You can start with this introduction
video and
watch rest 2 and 3 parts by changing the last number in the url.
