- What's special about it?
- Fire is a Sample Bot that demonstrates bad target acquisition, Head-On Targeting, and abuse of event handlers. More specifically:
- It does not move while firing.
- It does not turn its gun and radar separately.
- It acquires targets very slowly, because it turns its gun/radar at 5°/tick, instead of 65°/tick (the maximum possible radar turn rate).
- If its target happens to move counterclockwise, it will lose its lock.
- If it is hit by a bullet, it will move and lose its lock.
- Of course, these flaws are intentional, and you are supposed to improve on this robot.
- How competitive is it?
- In MeleeRumble, it is the 8th best sample bot (out of 13).
- How does it move?
- When hit, it turns perpendicular to the bullet and then moves 50 pixels forward or backwards (it alternates between the two options).
- How does it fire?
- When it scans another robot, it fires a 1.0- or 3.0-power bullet (depending on distance), and tries lock its gun onto its opponent.
- How does it dodge bullets?
- It doesn't.
- How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?
- It loses its lock often, and this causes it to quickly switch between targets in melee.
- How does it select a target to attack/avoid in melee?
- No explicit target selection.
- What does it save between rounds and matches?
- Nothing and nothing.
- Where did you get the name?
- It fires at enemies, and it has an orange-red color scheme.
- Can I use your code?
- Yes, it is released under the Eclipse Public License v1.0.
