- What's special about it?
- It's a MiniBot with GuessFactor Targeting, Random Movement and Energy Management which saves and restores enemy data from files where no code shrinking tricks are used. Rather I have tried to favour code clarity and readability. Code size with some debug printing code left is about 1410,
- How competitive is it?
- January 7 2004 - T 0.6.8 is #3 in RoboRumble@Home !!!!!
- January 7 2004 - T 0.6.8 is the #1 MiniBot in RoboRumble@Home !!!!! With some margin too! =)
- How does it move?
- Random, fluid, orbit movement. Very simplistic. I have tried to eliminate all special cases, which makes the code both smaller and easier to read and maintain. The movement idea is entirely my own. I think it represents a shift in movement paradigms and it might see many followers since it is powerful and Open Source.
- How does it fire?
- A lightly segmented GuessFactor Targeting gun.
- How does it dodge bullets?
- It tries to create a Movement Profile that is flat as flat juice with juice on top.
- What does it save between rounds and matches?
- The aim factors are static and also saved on file.
- Where did you get the name?
- Tityus is amongst the most venomous classes of Scorpions. And it lives in South America, where I was born.
- Can I use your code?
- Sure. It's included in the jar and released under the terms of the RWPCL.
- What's next for your robot?
- Tune the movement some more.
- Smoke Smoke.
- Does it have any WhiteWhales?
- What other robot(s) is it based on?
- None. Ah, well, many bots have inspired me. Maybe mostly so Kawigi's FloodMini which showed me how simple GuessFactor Targeting can be.
