Bot Name

Doctor Who, as in "Who wrote this code"?


Me, Krillr.


KrillBot? (TeamRobot)

What's special about it?

It uses a new framework i'm working on, plus DookiSaber? and DookiSailer?

Great, I want to try it. Where can I download it?


How competitive is it?

Extremely, thanks to Dookious

How does it move?


How does it fire?


How does it dodge bullets?


How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?

I don't think it does.

What does it save between rounds and matches?


Where did you get the name?

Well, its 1/8th my code, 7/8 voidious' right now. So its Doctor "Who wrote this code?"

Can I use your code?

I don't mind. And I don't think voidious does either.

What's next for your robot?

Slowly changing over to pure-krillrcode

Does it have any WhiteWhales?

Dookious ;-)

What other robot(s) is it based on?


Comments, questions, feedback:

As I mentioned on chat, you're free to use my code, of course, but it will hurt if you hit 2100 before me =) Best of luck with your tank. Cheers, -- Voidious

I am not able to download DoctorWho, the site does not exist. I don't think it will be very successfull in melee either, surfing waves from multiple bots usually results in drowning ;-) -- GrubbmGait

Ya, sadly VMWare server is still rather unstable... I had it hosted on a virtual machine on one of my main hosting servers. Transferring to non-VM now. Also, once I learn exactly how the DookiSaber? works I can easily adapt it so it /rocks/ in melee ;-). Just you wait and see. :-p

Im really intrested in your melee surfer :) I dont think wavesurfing works in meele, you can't scan every tank to get accurate waves. And its hard to differentiate between a firing and a hit robot. --Krabb

Hey man, I'm not sure of a nice way to say this, but I have to say something. I consider it extremely lame that you basically took the code from Dookious, made a few tweaks, and released it as your own bot. I realize Voidious doesn't have a problem with this, but I do. It took me years, literally years, to work my way from how good your previous best bot was (amk.ChumbaWumba 0.3 rated 1676.75) to where Phoenix is now. If you read the pages on the wiki, took some of the code from the sample pages, asked questions, and did things your own way, I would have no problem with you releasing a bot that could kick my ass. But I'm here struggling to improve my bot a few a rating points at a time, and you just copy-paste the best, make a few tweaks, and leapfrog over me? Give me a break. I think this is the first really rude thing I've posted on the wiki, and I'm sorry for that, but I'm pretty mad about this. --David Alves

I'm with David, here. It's ok to use Voidious' code for your own personal experiments, but entering it in the rumble is a bit too much. It might get you the points, but no respect. -- ABC

I added it to the rumble so I could monitor the affect my changes make as I learn how guns and movements like his work. Thats all. I'm not taking credit for how well it does at all. -- Krillr

Well then, take it out. If it's a test bot, like the RRGC ones, or [[| PhoenixBee]] or whatever, than you should take it out once it has reached a stable rating. You should also use to package wiki.* to reflect the fact that it's got large chunks of other people's code. Putting it in your own package and leaving it on there says to people that it's your bot and it's an actual robot, not a test of something. --David Alves

Ok, thanks for the advice. I'll probably do that from now on. I'm sorry if I offended anyone. -- Krillr

In response to Krabb: If you have your bot never lock its radar on, and if you have a different set of waves+stats+etc for each bot on the field, it can be quite easy to accomplish. I had once accomplished this with ChumbaMelee? 0.1 but my drive crashed a while back and with it went the code for it. Look at TheTardis for more info. -- Krillr
