What's special about it?
It's a pattern-matching micro melee bot. I don't know if there's many of those!
Great, I want to try it. Where can I download it?
. I use whatever is actually available at the time I want to release.
How competitive is it?
How does it move?
It uses the movement of MeleeSeed
, Sprout's baby brother.
How does it fire?
With a LateralVelocity
pattern matcher, that interpolates between scans when needed.
How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?
It does not.
How does it select a target to attack/avoid in melee?
It attacks the closest target. It's movement is affected by the closest target, too, I suppose.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
Between rounds it saves pattern data on every enemy. Nothing between matches.
Where did you get the name?
turns into Sprout. Makes sense to me.
Can I use your code?
What's next for your robot?
The number 1 spot in micro melee!
Any micro that stands in its way!
What other robot(s) is it based on?
The movement is from MeleeSeed
, which is based a lot on DuelistNanoMelee
. The gun is a standard nano pattern matcher (props go first to FunkyChicken
, maybe?), and I think reading about TronGuns
long ago is what came back to me to inspire interpolating between scans.
Comments, questions, feedback:
Wow, Kawigi won't be happy about this. Shiz has held that office for a long time. MeleeSeed
is looking pretty good too. (at 99 battles) --Chase-san
Nice job :) -- Voidious
Watch out GlowBlowMelee! Simontons plants are on the attack! --Chase-san
Sprout has topped Shiz by over 20 points, I am truely impressed. Remind me not to get on your bad side :D. --Chase-san
Thank you. 1.1 only made a small difference in the micro league, but is was a huge leap in the general melee rumble. I don't think 16th place for a micro is too shabby! And 3rd place among the minis, too. Minimum risk is really giving me problems for a mini bot, though. I can plug my gun on Shiz's movement, and its a killer (with LOADS of room to spare), but all my own attempts to create a better movement system are failing pretty miserably. -- Simonton
The link to your bots lrp: [Sprout LRP]. Yes its still on my server. --Chase-san
Wow, and I thought Sprout was doing pretty well before! It's almost vying for the #2 spot in the mini category. But then ... I probably speak too soon. If I remember right, it's stronger when running with the mega bots included, then looses some points when running exclusively against micros. -- Simonton
- Too bad it eats MeleeSeed alive (not very polite for a brother to do), dropping it about 4 spots in the nano rumble! -- Simonton
- Well, MeleeSeed, after running for a while in just general battles (not specifically those including Sprout), has climbed his way back up to 3rd place. The rating drift has almost put Sprout in 2nd place mini, too! -- Simonton
