- Orwellian State
An OSM is a new architecture for
game AI. It is based on hierarchical control but
extends it a step further with the help of a
metaphor of Bureaucratic Dictatorship. The main
advantage of OSM is in the effective management
of interaction complexity applied consistently
from the position of the metaphor. The proposed
architecture is quite general and can be used for
building other game engine subsystems.

This paper was written during my work on
vegetation modeller for World Builder.
After developing this tool for a number of years
I was finally convinced that moving from custom
L-Systems-based language to, say, Python would
offer significant advantage. Before leaving
Digital Element I made initial port of L-Systems
to Python. This proof-of-idea port later evolved
into a new tool Verdant.
L-Systems remain a useful theoretical tool.
L-Systems with inheritance offered a minimalistic
framework for exploring inheritance in O-O
programming languages from the theory of
categories point fo view. (Reference on this work
