What it is

A truly simple Targeting method which in Gouldingi is implemented like this:

Check MakoHT/Code for a full implementation of this. Though it is somewhat obscured there by a second aiming method and VirtualGuns code. It is about ten times as simple as it looks in MakoHT.

Strengths and weaknesses

The result of using this technique is that you keep firing at some average distance from the enemy relative to its current moving direction. This works surprisingly well against many surpringly advanced bots. But it can easily be fooled. Try pitching Gouldingi 1.0 against Ares and you'll see that anything multiplied by zero is always zero =). You'll need to substitute some bd average when shooting against Ares type movement styles. Later versions of Gouldingi handles this by using an even simpler targeting method (AveragedBearingOffsetTargeting) when the enemy is stationary. -- PEZ
