Like even some of the same comments in there.  How much did you change spooky?

I remember about a year ago we had somebody (don't remember his name now)come in here and release a bot which turned out to be an exact copy (other than one added gene that really didn't do anything anyway) of "Destinatus Preliator", then had the cheek to tell me it was an original design.

If that twat hadn't left of his own free will I would probably have banned him before much longer.

Not that there is anything wrong with customising someone else's bot. You just need to have the curtesy to acknowledge it.
Spooky actually did so in one of his earlier posts so it isn't so much that he is working with lightly modified Flammas that is the issue. Everybody needs to start somewhere.
I even have a (rather heavily) modded Flamma of my own on the league under the name "Purple Flamma"

The issue is more that minor mods to existing bots really have no place in the beastiary. They just take up valuable web space and serve no real purpose.

Also I Flamma is somewhat of a legend in the DB world. In V2.1 it thoroughly ruled the roost for the longest time (Until I kicked its ass with the first tie feeder "Devincio Venator"  :D )

What we need is a way to catalog bot derivatives.  I don't know that we can do it with the current forum controls though.

"derivatives." , hmm like:  6^0.5 =  3^0.5 * 2^0.5. ahh I know freedictionary.com , bingo

P.S.

I gess I only will have time to intergrate the ties by next week , sat  I got a DJ party to "attend"  :P , sunday I got to take a trip to my grandma. So I had a free gap tuday from 3pm to 9pm , o well going to sleep soon.

Edit:

ahhhh derivative, well Num If you actualy want to encurage people to make simple useless derivatives of bots then me and PY dont really agree with you. Unless there is a greater reason to this then I can see.

DOH! :blink:  , do you mean filter out bot derivatives that look suspicious?

Maybe 'strains' would be a better word instead of derivatives?

I thought this meant that there should be a sort of structure for storing bots which are modified versions of other bots. Like a family tree. It would be hard to do here but could be done with databases and stuff. Now there's an idea...
:D Ulciscor :D

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

Maybe a #include command?

ie:
A shimazu that turns all the time:


#include shimazu.txt
cond
start
100 .aimdx store
stop

end

That could work really well.

Youd have to label the genes as something, so you could overwrite some of them, or just add new ones.

Alot depends on if gene order will matter in future versions (I'm thinking not).
