FloatingTadpole is robot designed for an OO design project in uni.
Great, I want to try it. Where can I download it?
How competitive is it?
version 1.2.1 got in the top 50
version 1.2.2 got over 1900 points after 649 battles (I hope it will stay there)
How does it move?
Wave surfing with forward/backward sensors because with my current precise prediction it does not have a better profile.
How does it fire?
Virtual guns (5 GF gun + 1 pattern matcher)
How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?
it's just a OneOnOne
How does it select a target to attack/avoid in melee?
I don't know never tried.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
evrything between rounds
movement stats between matches in 1.2.5
Where did you get the name?
It came from an exercise I did in OO design class with a frog model.
Can I use your code?
What's next for your robot?
precise prediction for the movement and a good gun.
What other robot(s) is it based on?
ideas from Pugilist, RaikoMX
, Bee, and the disscussion on the wiki.
2005-9-8 I found a huge bug in my GF guns they will perform a lot better in the next release.
2005-9-9 Bug corrected +70 points!

Congratulations on breaking the 1900 mark!! -Krabb
Thanks, but I dont know if I will be able to spare much time for robocode to get any higher soon. --Florent
I tried an APM version of it reversing my own PM gun, but tuning it is not so easy but we'll see. --Florent
