Spaniard Conquistador
« on: March 12, 2005, 06:03:43 AM »
This is a modified version of Animal Minimalis I posted.  Climbs 2/3's the way through F1! (Obviously trounces SB right now).

Uses poison and a self replicating virus that blinds bots that aren't immune to it.  Hence why it's called a spanish conquistador (the spaniards killed alot of Aztecs with small pox for the history illeterate).

The self replicating virus is really the shining point.  The rest of it is pretty standard.  You'll need a working version of 3.0 AKA 2.36 because it uses the value 0 store as free feature and the *.thisgene for the virus.  If you don't have it, sned me an email with a large enough inbox and I'll send you a version of it to play with.

Find it in the beastiary as "Spanish Conquistador (SB) 0.8" here.  When I get the version done I'll post it as 1.0 and we can enter it in the leagues  :boing:

Oops, forgot about waste.

Things like that are why it's not 1.0 yet.

'malicous code
*.stopper 89 sub dup div '1 if not right, 0 else
'-1 mult 1 add '0 if not right, 1 else
dup

Just a guess but I don't think the code is quite right. :)

Nice bit of coding though, especially since I think you improved it :D

You left off the last bit!

'malicous code
*.stopper 89 sub dup div '1 if not right, 0 else
'-1 mult 1 add '0 if not right, 1 else
dup

.eye5 mult store 'disable their vision.  Haha!  Best yet, it will always look like there's something just in the distance.

It doesn't seem to work, right?  Yet it does.  And exactly what it should.  Weird.

Okay, the new version of SC has arrived.  This one's virus works much better at immobilizing the victim without killing him, allowing him enough time to produce more viruses.

Also uses the new longer range ability (store negative values to .shootval when you fire -6, -1, and maybe a few other types of shots).  Everyone evaluate the new .shootval for -6 and -1 shots, BTW.  Tell me if you think they're overpowered.  Negative values increase range, positive values increase power.

It defeated DIN 20 to 9.  No special tricks.  The virus secured more than half of those victories, in my opinion.  Mwahahahaha.

Still doesn't deal with waste.  I couldn't get it to work right.

Not quite ready for the end leagues yet.  Still have some more things to work out.

Check it out here.

Excalibur quality SC!  Version 0.95.  Went 150 rounds against Excalibur before losing.

So close to being the top bot!  Check it out again at the beastiary.

Okay, SC is now good enough for the leagues.  Henk, go ahead and add it to the short bot league  (No contest).

PY, add it to F1 when you get a chance too.

Double league entry huh?

I don't think any other bots have ever done that with short bots and F1 leagues together.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world

Those who understand binary.

and those who don't

:D PY :D
