Paul's most recent description (circa 2004) read: "SandboxDT by Paul Evans is the evolution of SandboxLump, which had a superb record in the IBM RobocodeRumble. DT is usually the top bot in every contest anyone has thought up (from time to time somone comes up with a new strategy - but DT usually catches up). It supports 1-v-1, Melee, and Team battles, and in addition it always attempts to out-survive its enemies, This is THE bot to beat."
- What's special about it?
- From roughly 2002 to sometime in 2004, it was the top one on one, melee, and teams bot. Saying "top bot" is perhaps an understatement: it was unrivaled for much of that time, and set the bar very high for other Robocoders.
- How competitive is it?
- It is currently in the top 75 in General 1v1 rating, top 25 General 1v1 Premier League, and top 25 in Melee. It has not been updated since March 2004.
- How does it move?
- It attempts to visit all GuessFactors evenly, creating a flat movement profile that advanced guns have difficulty hitting.
- How does it fire?
- It uses GuessFactor Targeting.
