Bot is unable to detect large veggies?
« on: February 22, 2006, 01:26:29 PM »
Hello.

I've coded a little bottie for testing to see how things works.
Im using a bit modified game rule like veggies get 100 nrg per cycle.
So, when veggie is not attack it become big after some time (.body grows)
and then problem arais..  When veggie have 32000 nrg and body > 25000
my bot stops to detect it.
I dont know where could be the problem.
Anyone can help?
Ive done step by step execution
and when bot is close to to veggie, eye3 eye5 eye7 have just
0 value (via printmem .eye<n>) It looks like bug to me..

PS: I would be glad to get some docs about *ALL* DNA codes.
I see ppl using abs sgn etc command, but they are not documented.
Anyone could share me a doc please?

Code: [Select]

Hi Borg. Welcome to the forum.

I suspect that you are running up against an inefficiency in the program code.

The eyes work on the distance between bots. This distance is measured center to center rather than perimeter to perimeter so when the bots get really fat it is possible that another bot cannot get physically close enough for the center to center distance between them to fall below the minimum threshold distance.

I can't say for sure what that distance actually is without going in to the code and searching it out.

Which version are you running?. This seems to be an issue that would be more likely to occur in 2.4 rather than 3.37.6 (the mainly used version)

If there isn't a document up on the wiki that covers these commands then nobody has ever written on.
The in-gam help menu covers a lot of stuff but it hasn't been updated in the last few releases. Even I am a bit out of touch with some of the math operators that Numsgil added.

I don't know that you've been keeping up with most of my changes in general actually :D

Yup I think you might be right there.

For some reason, over the last several months I have been so darn busy that I have barely had the chance to turn DB on except to run evo sims in the background while doing other work.  :(

Try the wiki for documentation on math operators and that sort of stuff - it's really useful  :)

I used to be indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Ahhh POOEY to you  :P

When you have to process 10 days worth of analytical samples in a five day period, you are busy by definition.

I have been working 50 and 60 hour weeks since the middle of November, just trying to keep up.

Mind you the overtime pay is pretty cool  B)

yes ... I imagine the govt is very happy with the increase in your donations. ;)
I find, that after my first 20 hours of overtime, I am going downhill ...
to the point that I am taking home less [per hour] than I do at straight-time.
still ... sometimes the job needs to be done ... so we do it.
but that certainly doesn't mean we don't bitch about it to anypne
within earshot!!! :D lol
