Venomous ties?
« on: January 17, 2014, 11:29:04 PM »
Is it possible to envenomate a bot through a tie? I'm trying to finish up my parasitic algae bot, and I want it to inject venom into another bot that it ties to, to paralyze it, and prevent it from escaping.

no i don't think so but that would be cool if you could. you can turn towards the tie and shoot venom and with a few more tricks maybe i think it would be similar. if you do find a way i know i would be using it. :D

Also I need a tutorial on conspec recognition, because I cannot get my parasitic algae to not tie to each other. I have implemented slime and yet they keep trying to tie to each other.

try an out and in to do it like

start
5 .out1 store
stop

cond
*.in1 5 !=
start
1 .tie store
stop

so it will tie only if the other bot doesn't have 5 in .out1

I managed to figure that out before you posted that.

lol well it is a good idea though i can't get it to work in my bots very well because they evolve out of it too quicky and end up destroying them selves. :glare:

exactly why you need .inspectdscndant & .inspectdnasmlrty - 1st one inspects if theyre directly related to you (parent, grandparent, child, greatgrandparent...but doesn't include cousin or uncle or aunt!) AND 2nd inspects how close % their DNA is to you,
But those 2 commands were 'said to be' overpowered.
