Update #11: AI & Wall Painting



The last couple of weeks have seen the initial implementation of quite a few important systems. Firstly, we have begun teaching the guests how to behave. As this is the service industry, we are naturally teaching a few of them to behave poorly. They now perform various tasks around the hotel, which, coupled with basic animations, makes them seem almost human. Secondly, we have added in a wall painting tool. This actually required changing much of how the current building system works. However, it greatly improves the aesthetic and customisation aspects of the game, so it’s well worth the effort.

AI Tasks:

After the room designation and chair placement system upgrades mentioned in our previous blog, the AI tasks became a lot easier to implement. We have kicked this off by implementing common tasks like taking trips to the restroom, showering, and sleeping. The focus will now be on crossing off other important tasks on the AI list.


Wall Painting:

While the new wall painting system took only 3 days of work to implement, it almost required us to rebuild the entire building system. Instead, it was decided that an older iteration of the system was more suitable for wall painting and saving changes, even though it lacked optimisation. However, our tests are showing that it isn’t performing any slower, so it was a sacrifice we are glad to have made. The new approach involves placing prefab wall segments containing a mesh for each side of the wall. When wall painting, the system automatically detects the surface a player is clicking on and switches out the desired material. Don’t worry, we’ll be writing up a longer post on the building system in the future. It’ll be quite the page-turner.



We’ll be focusing on adding in more AI functionality and surrounding game systems over the next couple of weeks. If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to contact us here or through any of our profiles on social media. Thanks for reading! We hope to see you again soon.

About This Game

Hotel Magnate is a tycoon/simulator game that gives you the tools to build and manage your own hotel, motel, luxury resort, or shabby shack. It is whatever you make of it.

Beginning with nothing but dreams and an empty lot, you can shape your hotel to your liking. Pick from an assortment of rooms and facilities that will grow both your floorspace and your revenue stream. Build restaurants for the foodies, day spas for the vacationers, and conference halls for the workaholics. There’s a wide range of rooms to choose from.

Once you’ve laid down the foundations, it’s time to pick out the decor. That’s right, you get to customise everything down to the furniture and decorations. Make it wacky, make it classy, or change up the theme from room to room. You will attract different types of guests as your hotel grows and its rating changes, bringing new opportunities and challenges. Remember, the customer is usually wrong, but you’re in the service industry now. Get your hotel in shape, slap on your best smile, and be prepared for whatever comes.

FEATURES:

  • Build, furnish, and oversee your own multi-level hotel
  • Tend to your guests' needs and demands, and attract wealthier clientele by improving facilities and securing better ratings
  • Hire employees to clean, serve, manage, and maintain your hotel
  • Take control of the inner-workings of your hotel by managing room prices, wages, restaurants, and many other operations
  • Become adept at marketing to attract more types of guests and generate buzz

CHOICES AND CONSEQUENCES:

In Hotel Magnate, your decisions have consequences. Something as simple as selecting which supplier to purchase towels from, or the price of drinks, can have a significant impact on your business. More luxurious fittings will bring you wealthier guests that are harder to please, whilst lowering the price of alcohol may attract trouble.

Here’s a scenario:
You have decided to lower the price of alcoholic beverages, which has resulted in an increase in sales and guest turnover. However, you didn’t foresee your hotel becoming known as a cheap dive or sleazy resort, attracting a younger crowd that has a penchant for partying and property damage. Make your business decisions wisely!

ROOMS AND FACILITIES:

The facilities you provide have a major impact on the types of guests your hotel attracts. Each facility attracts a certain type of client, but might convince others to stay well away. Are you thinking about creating a health and wellness resort? Gym and spa facilities will go a long way to attract health-conscious holidaymakers. Hoping to make your hotel a family destination? Offer a good balance between adult and child activities. Placing a playground next to a bar isn’t the most conventional approach, but worn-out parents might view it as pure genius

  • Guest rooms and en-suite bathrooms
  • Restaurants
  • Kitchens and laundry
  • Bars/Nightclubs
  • Conference rooms
  • Pools, gyms, spas
  • Tennis courts, playground, games room
  • Staff-rooms
  • & Much More!

GUESTS AND STAFF:

Hire staff to keep your hotel running smoothly. Be sure to pick the right people for the various positions, as each will have different skill levels and wage demands. You can even create your own individual staff bios!

Your hotel will be frequented by many guests, including but not limited to:
  • Business people
  • Backpackers
  • Partygoers
  • Families
  • Luxury seekers
  • Health nuts
  • A strange fellow named George

HOTEL RATING

Don’t forget to keep an eye on your hotel rating! If you offer poor accommodation to your guests, do not expect them to be friendly when they put their reviews online. Ratings will naturally affect how many clients you receive in the future, as well as the type.

Hotel Magnate provides players with an enormous amount of customisation and choice, allowing you to create a piece of paradise or a nightmarish motel. Your decisions will affect every aspect of play, so be prepared to deal with the consequences.
