I like this idea and would be happy to help (although I'm starting a new job and may not have much free time unfortunately)! It would be great to have a really modular bot where various robocode strategies (GoTo vs TrueSurf, KNN vs Segmentation, etc.) could be compared easily. The closest things we've had back in the day was swapping out guns/movement as in the RoboRumble_Gun_Challenge, Diamond/DiamondHawk, WaveSerpent/DookiSerpent, etc., but that was pretty crude and coarse-grained.
Hi, it is really great to see you working on this :) I was working on something similar however it always turned into a generics hell. I wonder how this project will turn out. Also, will it be open to contributions or will it be open sourced once it is done?
Wow thanks! The main idea behind ScalarX is to provide some platform to develop & test strategy (mainly machine learning) easily, without worrying differences in basic implementation. The complete version could include some dedicated server to test all submissions automatically, but current experiments are somewhat unsuccessful, you know ;)
