Bots bots and more bots!

Feb 3, 1999, 9:33pm
Bots everywhere! :) They've even setup their own news group! :)

Zelda 64 does make aw look like a junk yard, and the day night passage is a nice effect to...

[View Quote] > Played Zelda64 yet? It's got plants that grow back SMOOTHLY after Link slices 'em up. AW looks outdated more and more with each new game release. Sad...

ideas

Feb 7, 1999, 2:02pm
Thats a good idea :)

maybe I can do it or get someone to do it, it may go good with some other ideas
I've been working on,

Such as a AI simulator where you put a few animals into a world, than eventually
they will mate and spawn other bots with the whole predator prey food chain
thing going on at the same time, and also I was thinknig if there was only a way
to get around avatar restrictions not only could the animals evolve mentally but
also physically were the program could edit the rwx file to include a new gene
and than upload that file ot the server and use it as its avatar...

Deer Bot

Trees wont be fun if their avatars and plus the person would need a million bot
limit :)

Bot limit is a universe setting and COf has bot limit set at 3 for all users in all
worlds

Bots get boring...

Feb 5, 1999, 12:25am
We need more bot ideas, everyone is stuck on those dumb greeter bots,
and chat bots :) we need something new and useful. And well game bots
have seem to of worn their selves out and no one plays with them
anymore, when was the last big soccer tournament in awgames??

Bots get boring...

Well what other so called applications can be made with the SDK?

you know what I don't think there is any other things that can be developed with the SDK.

Wow Cubic your starting to sound like some *other* people, maybe you should stop
and think to your self, OTHER people have ideas and they have the right ot
express them and you should keep your trap SHUT!

Lets see the reason why people wanna do this in aw is that its much easier to
use premade 3d engines and servers than to go off and develope a whole new one,
it's not like you have to goto those worlds that have thjese eco-systems in them
hell you could avoid them all together so people have the right to put bots in
their worlds without wasting your bandwidth...

Bots bots and more bots there everywhere till the sdk comes out buwahahaha!

Sep 5, 1998, 8:13pm
One good thing is the amount of those annoying bots that announce your
name when you enter will be reduced :)

If a greeterbot is alone does it still greet?

Hmmm... good point you have there... gotta have something to control the
population of trees but than we got to have something to control the population
of squirells :)

Help? :)

Sep 10, 1998, 1:17am
Ok when I use the compiler it says theres to many errors in aw.h than I
run it with the .lib included and it generates the proggy ut the proggy
crashes the second I open it...

Help? :)

Sep 10, 1998, 10:22am
Maybe I should try saving it as C++ huh? :)

Other vers?

Sep 11, 1998, 8:08pm
It'd be nice if we could get the sdk for the following :)

1. Visual Basic
2. Other C++ compilers
3. Java

BUGS! :)

I was messing around with building and obejct changing commands I made a
bot that makes a object orbit GZ some cool stuff first time I've messed
with it :) will aid me in a larger project I'm working on :))

Cool stuff...

Feb 8, 1999, 8:47pm
Hmmm... lets see the blimp in AWGames was programmed by me. Tis not very hard to do...

Lets see you program a bot... All you can do is cut-down and complain so shut up and go

Feb 8, 1999, 11:04pm
I do not have low self-esteem, I think you do... Your the one cutting people down so you can feel better... and I did no make the "bot" orbit GZ I made the bot move objects around GZ and I was telling everyone else it is some rather interesting stuff and that it will help me in a bigger project I am doing... so you can shutup k?

[View Quote] > Ah, Byte...<sigh>...you've missed the point of my original response to your post in this thread (as usual). I simply meant that just because you got some bot to orbig a GZ doesn't make you special, especially considering COF had one oribitting AlphaWorld's GZ long before you even "attempted" your "feat". In fact, you probably just copied it, so I don't feel like you deserve any praise and your post was an obvious call for external gratification based on your low self-esteem. Sad, man, sad...

You know what eep? I'm starting to see why AW.COM anned you, cause your an ASS yeah little man you heard me your an ASS so why don't you shut the f*** up and go find some other 3d program to flame people in eh? Sicne the day I met you I knew you were an ass and your gonna be an ass all your life...

[View Quote] > Once again I state in an altered form: whoopety-do. Have a medal, champ. Do you need such external recognition from making such an announcement? It would be the same if I made an out-of-the-blue post saying I just learned how to make RWXs. Big fucking deal. LOTS of people know how to make RWXs. LOTS of people make bots. BIG DEAL! Duh.

Weather algorithm.

Feb 8, 1999, 8:53pm
One idea is use tourist property so they could be removed another way is
if roland was up to programming is make a way for bots to build and when
people build under or over these objects would not return a BI
message...

Lame question :)

Oct 9, 1998, 9:51pm
does AW_AVATAR_GESTURE the thing that responds to seqs played by poeple
or is what makes the bot do a gesture?

LOL I just had an interesting conversation with the bot, where can I get the
