    Wood for Thought: Community Botting Project

    Hi there Face, what have you got for me today?

    Greetings back at you people of the Bot-Supply! I have something REALLY quite awesome to show you guys. It is a bot which learns how to play without human interaction. Basically the best thing ever, right? But we need some help. We need more than just my computer and scarecrow's computer to really get this thing learning well.




    What is this thing?

    So I'm sure some of you are wondering, "What on Earth is this exactly?" I'll try to explain it as simple as I can. This bot generates 50 settings called Chromosomes. These Chromosomes are tested in a simulated carp puzzle called a micro world over the course of 25 boards. The top 50 are selected reproduce with each other randomly, while the bottom 50 are cut from existence. This repeats with some mutations in the chromosomes over and over again. Getting better and more refined as the generations come along. In essence. This is a learning carpentry bot. Outside of pressing the play button it learns without any human interaction. Sadly this can take up quite a lot of time. So we need help from other people.




    So what?

    Well this is where you guys come in. It's completely free to use, has no detection risks, requires no work on your part, and you get some pretty cool stuff out of it.You can find the download for this bot in your supply crate. It's under your bots and costs nothing but a little bit of your processor power.
    All you have to do is run it. Seriously that's it. You will have some cool stuff happen the more you help us.




    What's in it for me?



    The First of the Prizes is Free to Everyone:
    You get to wave around your e-penis with a really cool dynamic signature!
    You will also be able to check to see how far along you have come to getting the next tier of prizes!


    You will see a field in the bot to imput your forum name. In order to show off your signature wrap this url in image tags. You will need to add your username at the end of the url.
    Code:
    http://www.jamesmcilveen.com/signature/sigimage.php?name=YOURNAMEHERE




    The Second of the Prizes is Awarded at 5,000 Chromosomes Submitted:
    You get to wave an even bigger e-penis around with your forum name in a credit section of the Wood for Thought bot when it is released!




    The Third of the Prizes is Awarded at 10,000 chromosomes submitted:
    With great dedication will come a 30% off coupon to purchase the bot when it comes out!




    The Jackpot of all Prizes comes with the winning Genes:
    There are two genes we are looking for the most.
    The best suited chromosome for a bot to be sold.
    The highest scoring chromosome of all time. (This will be used only as a proof of concept and not actually released)

    The prize for getting either one of them is a lifetime copy to the Wood for Thought bot 24 hours before it's sold!




    Somethings very important to note!

    • This bot does not interact with the puzzle pirate client at all. Thusly there is no risk of ban if you use it. It also does not collect any puzzle pirates informations.
    • In order for a Chromosome to be Submitted it must be a score over 0. Sometimes a mutation really just wrecks how the bot plays and it will get a negative score. Those do not get submitted and will not count.
    • This can take quite a lot of processing power. If you have a poor processor or a bad cooling system I recommend you NOT use this. We are not responsible for anything which happens if you do. If you notice your temperature raising too high turn off the bot!
    • If this bot gains sentience quickly destroy your pc and contact us immediately!!!!!
    • Checking the Render box will slow down how fast it works. Keep it unchecked for faster results!






    With all of this said, what are you waiting for? Start running this darn thing and lets make a really awesome carp bot!

    Currently once every hour. We are going to change that to be quicker but James was really tuckered out after this and went to sleep.

    The person with the highest chromosome score gets a free copy, but in theory there's a score ceiling, and several people could reach that. What happens then?

    The first person who gets it will get the prize. Although it wouldn't be hard to increase the board count by like 1000 and do simulations to see which bot is truly the best.

    Quick question: How would you know who scored the highest chromosome?

    Because that would go to the person with the strongest computer.
