Abstract: Video game industry is an actively advancing industry in terms of advancement in hardware and graphical software. One of the most important feature in modern videogame is the graphical interface, whether it is the commands or the game word, is it the things that the player see with their own eyes. A computer game that requires a persistent game world with a lot of players (active / non-active) such as the Massively Multiplayer Online, or an adventure game consists of crowds of multiple objects and characters or avatars, therefore requires an effective way to create and manage the crowds’ diversity while keeping the game load at a minimum and for the best overall performance. This project aims to cover some computer vision and graphics techniques to enable the creation of a diverse world of a computer game, by using 3D graphical model tools to crate 3D models and animation, an Image manipulation program to employ texture retouching and editing and 3D game engine to integrate the multiple elements of the models and animations into a persistent game world. This project consists of two parts; the first is to assist the project officer of the game to produce additional models and animation diversity for the game world, while the second focuses on original research on how to improve the effectiveness of creating diversity in the crowds, which includes an faster, easier and more cost-effective way to diversify a human model’s textures and calculating the most optimal level-of-detail for crowds of high density. The project concludes with satisfying results for the original research and resulted on possible improvement for the project’s modeling techniques.
