BushBot

Post by Preacherman » Wed Dec 08, 2004 7:43 am

I am thinking about a new AI, BushBot. It will have the following characteristics :

1.) BushBot will, by any means necessary, gain complete control of NA.

2.) In the name of homeland security, every country inside NA will be defended, rather than just the borders.

3.) BushBot will attack the Middle East "for a card" everytime someone else owns it.

4.) BushBot will establish a base in every other continent on the map. Not with the goal of taking over that continent, but more to make sure nobody else does.

5.) It will quote Bushisms in the chat every chance it gets. Relive classics such as "Border relations between Canada and Mexico have never been better" and "For every fatal shooting, there are roughly three nonfatal shootings. Folks, this is unacceptable in America, We're going to do something about it".

6.) BushBot will never actually try to win. It just wants to be strongest and fight forever. It will realise that eliminating opponents from the game will be counter-productive to this. If another player attacks one of BushBot's bases, it will reduce that player to rubble, without quite killing it. It will then protect that player from others until it is strong enough to be a target again.

7.) If someone attacks NA, all the players except the attacker will get hunted down and decimated.

8.) If any other player owns any other continent, BushBot will punch a small hole then mass armies on it's borders to convince them not to bother trying to own it again.

Any other characteristics that are needed? heh... :P

I wish there was a way BushBot could borrow vast amounts of income off the other players and then turn around and try to flood other players markets with BushBot fastfood chains.

Otherwise, I think you got it all!

:smt044 That sounds great Preach!

Maybe the BushBot should never attack Great Britain, but always attack France. As well insult France and rename it's "French" food to "freedom" food.

sounds nice but believe you are getting yourself into a hell of a lot of programming while you can also do it the easy way

why not just let the bushbot behave totally at random and let him make ignorant statements?

that will do the trick i guess

It occurs to me that if you have a BushBot then you will need a BlairBot, too.

BlairBot would only attack to fulfill BushBot objectives and re-articulates BushBot-isms into carefully worded testimonies of resolve and doubt.

How about a French bot?

He could ignore all obvious signs of impending hostilities around him.

He could miss turns to defend himself and his allies while making chat comments about whine and cheese.

If another player interjected themselves to save him from obvious elimination he would condemn them before a world tribunal.

Whenever a country throbbed on its border the French bot would immediately surrender.

The French bot would have no memory or allegiance to the NA bot, despite a long history of NA saving its butt.

When an army takes over France, the French bot will play the Marseillaise and immediately collaborate with the conqueror.

The French bot can not, under any circumstance, bathe or engage in dental hygiene.

Just an outline.

If ever a Bushbot is created, I will sacrifice every last ounce of strength I have to eliminate it from the board. Maybe we could have secret weapons too, like bags of pretzels for attacking. And maybe the Busbot's weakness could be eating and choking on them. Now that would be sweeet...

And while you're at it, you could change the colors of NA to show red states and blue states. Red states should be attacked first.
the possibilities are endless

Cheney Bot

Post by Mike » Tue Jun 06, 2006 10:29 am

You could copy the code from the bush bot, and create a Cheney Bot, where Bushbot goes for NA, and teh Cheney Bot goes for the mid east, and colludes with bushbot to attack other players that bushbot has targeted.
