Not sure if anyone else has seen these but someone solved a massive problem in strategy games with tens of thousands of sprites; Complex path-finding and navigation on a scale like no other. Each individual can now plan their own path regardless of the scenes complexity. Paths are NOT restricted/shared to groups like other games. This opens doors to infinite possibilities, with mesmerizing displays of tens of thousands of individuals taking unique approach's to complex situations:

Here's the video:

Yes, "mesmerizing" is the word, once it started I couldn't stop watching. Thanks for sharing!

After the intro I found it boring. Battles are not huge scrums between armies of ants, each man doing what he wants. Battles are organised affairs between command structures with forces comprised of units. Now fix several hundred men into each unit and have the AI path the units in accordance with a battle plan, and you'd have something.

Well, yes but I'd say that this is a huge advancement nonetheless in path finding. Eventually I'm sure more developments will come in the form of sprites forming units.

Apparently this guy is working on 100,000K units now.
