What is Battle School?

Battle School is a place up in space where two armies of 40 each try to kill each other, in a book called Ender's Game. Now it is going to be part of Robocode!


I have an idea that I would like to try it out. It is based off the book Ender's Game/ Ender's Shadow. Anyway, each person creates a 40-person Army. The Army can be broken up into a bunch of little teams. Each team is called a Toon. Make sure your Toons don't fire at each other! Then, the armies face of on a 2000x2000 battlefield! The last army standing wins! I am working on an army now. If someone has questions, ask them. --Bayen

Could 80 tanks on a battlefield fit into any reasonable amount of RAM? Doesn't seem like it, but somebody else probably knows better than I. -- Voidious

I tried it before posting and it wasn't that bad. It went pretty slow for the beginning, but the whole round was over in less than 5 minutes. --Bayen

I tried it too, its possible! And it seems to be funny :) I would prefer a 5000x5000 Battlefield, but weŽll need a zoom function... --Krabb

Ha... in that case, I may be up for writing a team (of teams) at some point, but right now I'm a bit obsessed with Dookious :) And I think 2000x2000 is kinda small for 80 bots, too, but I'm sure a lot of them are wiped out quickly anyway. I'll definitely watch some battles if two people make teams here. I still think RAM could be an issue depending on the bots, though, and you may need to put some kind of limit on storing data. You could even require all PerceptualBots. Good luck! -- Voidious

I have done a quick hack names Ownage: http://www.robocoderepository.com/BotDetail.jsp?id=2863 --Krabb
