Agent Smith - improved Python starter package

Postby agent_smith » Mon Nov 28, 2011 2:35 pm

[Admin Edit: We ask that you not release bot code with functionality beyond the starter bot until after the contest. I've removed the code posted below. Thank you. - Janzert]

Hello :)

Here's a better starter pack for Python. This bot is called Agent Smith.
It is based on tutorial bot, but is way better at moving around and gathering food.

Agent Smith should get you a rank of about 2000 and skill about 48.

Here is what it looks like when it catches a lucky break:
http://aichallenge.org/visualizer.php?g ... user=12368

These opponents were ranked around 1300 - 1600.


The bot is relatively good at gathering food.
Its main weakness is that it ignores enemy ants completely.

Feel free to improve the bot and contribute it back to the society.

If you use this bot or any derivative of it in aichallange.org contest,
you must set your organization name in your account to 'Agent Smith'.

oh, please don't do that !

while it's highly encouraged to share ideas on the forum/irc, please don't post an updated bot here.
the reason: you'll rise the stake for all other starter kits/noobs out there, which is not fair to them.
let them find out on their own !


(also notice, there was another AgentSmith here before you.. so be careful, not stepping onto his/her toes.)

Agent Smith is many!

As to sharing the code, the bot is nothing very fancy. I'm OK with raising the stakes slighty, after all the competition is nearing its final. So, for late comers (like me), there's still chance to enter and improve.

Of course, if it's against the rules to post the code, by all means - someone delete it. However, I looked at the contest rules and didn't find anything about it.

P.S. Also, Python users are a bit handicapped, because it's a relatively slow language. Notice that most of top contenders use some dialect of C or Java, which are the fastest.
