Anansi

Custom Crowd Solver

Abstract

Anansi is a custom crowd Solver I've been building in Houdini using VEX.

It's a point driven Agent System controlled by Type:Response classifications and class profiles.

It's still in development, and current relies on logical gates, states, and preset class-based behaviors to drive the simulation
