Well spotted, but that is stretching the scope of 'typo' to breaking point. ;)
Seems LB has some ingrained (or willfully stubborn) ways of writing certain english words. (unless it's Amenglish, I can't tell tomato from tom-ate-o)

Are Braben and Bell in by the way?
(I feel they deserve reverence like Giles, like as they are the 'fathers of Giles' ;) or creators of the holy-lite, which was passed on to his diciple Ahruman by the eternal Giles, who was burntout by the demands of the code.)
Its what comes of copying your strings (and Megal's) straight from the BB into descriptions rather than into Word first to check the speeeling
lol. Yep I got some stubborn ways of writing things wrong. esp. when I don't check it (I just typed it in the forum console).

Bell and Braben appear as a bar name "The Bell and Braben Bar and Grill".

At looking at your complete AI it seems to make no sense: far to much scanning. Scan for merchantman already includes the player. scan for non thargoid already includes everything except thargoids. And when you have found something you do nothing when the offending status is to low. The last scan you do is scanForOffenders and that is almost the same as you do in the previous scans, so only keep this one and throw everything else away. scanForOffenders finds only offenders, but with a chance factor. But in your previous scans you also just have a chance to pick an offender. The chance to find a ship during a scan ranges from 0% to 100% with an offender status ranging from 0 till 256 legal point. So a ship with 1 legal points takes on average 256 scans to be found. A ship with 25 points about 10 scans etc.. And AI runs about 8 times a second so you can calculate that everything with offending status is found within a few seconds.

You don't want to include minor offenders, so put a "checkTargetLegalStatus" in the  "TARGET_FOUND" message. In the same state you then use the  "TARGET_OFFENDER" and  "TARGET_FUGITIVE" responses.
Let all responses that should lead to an attack end with the groupAttackTarget command. This command will set the GROUP_ATTACK_TARGET message. Then in the  "GROUP_ATTACK_TARGET" message you handle the actual change of state. "groupAttackTarget" not always makes sense, but defenseShips get a group ID and will respond to this call. Ships launched by role will not.

So your AI only needs two states, the "ATTACK" state and next scan state:

Code: Select all

"SCAN_FOR_CRIMINALS" = { 
        "ENTER" = (scanForOffenders); 
         "ATTACKED" = (setTargetToPrimaryAggressor, "sendTargetCommsMessage: [spacebar-warning]", "markTargetForOffence: 51", groupAttackTarget); 
        "GROUP_ATTACK_TARGET" = (setTargetToFoundTarget, launchDefenseShip, "setStateTo: ATTACK");
         "OFFENCE_COMMITTED" = (setTargetToFoundTarget, "markTargetForOffence: 15", "sendTargetCommsMessage: [spacebar-warning]", groupAttackTarget); 
         "ACCEPT_DISTRESS_CALL" = (setTargetToFoundTarget, "markTargetForOffence: 15", groupAttackTarget); 
         "INCOMING_MISSILE" = (fireECM, launchDefenseShip, "sendTargetCommsMessage: [spacebar-warning]", "markTargetForOffence: 51", groupAttackTarget); 
         "NOTHING_FOUND" = (); 
         "TARGET_FOUND" = (setTargetToFoundTarget, checkTargetLegalStatus); 
          "TARGET_CLEAN" = (); 
          "TARGET_MINOR_OFFENDER" = (); 
          "TARGET_OFFENDER" = ("sendTargetCommsMessage: [spacebar-warning]", setTargetToFoundTarget, groupAttackTarget); 
          "TARGET_FUGITIVE" = ("sendTargetCommsMessage: [spacebar-warning]", setTargetToFoundTarget, groupAttackTarget); 
         "UPDATE" = (scanForOffenders, decreaseAlertLevel);
         "EXIT" = ();   };

@Eric. I agree I have too many states, the trouble was the AI frequently fails to detect targets if it is optimised! This way as I force lots of scans the Bar reacts to a crime / criminal within a couple of seconds. Eg the scan for pirates should be unnecessary as they should be detected by the check of legal status, but they werent! With lots of states its a good bet one state will pick them up. With just one state offences were being committed and pirates swanning about with the bar just sitting there. I think this is beacause a scan is done very quickly. To cycle through all states takes about a second, so it doesn't slow the game down. I playtested a lot of different versions and found it needed mutiple states to get a reliable reaction. Its messy, but it works! :wink:

@Griff: Do you fancy sticking a load of turrets on the rock part (I reckon the ones from the BattleBot Control Drone would look in keeping with the bar - unless you fancy doing a new model.) Maybe double the size of the bar as well, there are a lot of hunters aboad!

Here are some more, if you don't mind. Most of them deal with crimes related to other OXPs. And if there are doublettes to what you already have, just throw them away.

<string>[assassination_board_crime] taking Giles' name in vain,</string>
<string>[assassination_board_crime] infecting [assassination_board_poster_systemd] with the Black Plague,</string>
<string>[assassination_board_crime] cursing in a Zenarchy Monastery,</string>
<string>who made Grandma Thruttle really angry,</string>
<string>who fell asleep while watching an exciting [assassination_board_poster_systemd]ian sit com,</string>

And more random_hits_cool_items:

<string>a Happy Eye pulpit</string>
<string>the sacred relics of the Witchspace Lobster</string>
<string>a brand new Terascreen</string>

Thanks D!

I’ve put a new test alpha up at the box link at the bottom of the post. AIs for the bar and the hunters are done and a lot more stuff is added to descriptions and each bar has an individual name. The code to add the victims is not yet done.

Requires : Oolite 1.69.1 (may work on 1.68 and 1.69 but definitely won’t work on 1.65).

You’d also need the following OXPs installed as bounty hunter patrons of the bars fly ships from these OXPs as well as native ships:-

Aegidian's Specials
Aegidian's X-Ships
Imperial Courier (Version 2)
Marett Space Corporation
Old Ships
Python Class Cruiser
Supercobra
Wolfwood's Variants

The ships stats are the same as normal (i've just liked_shiped and given the custom roles and AIs) but get equipment as suits their pilot’s role and when appearing as characters get new AI and randomly generated hails.

Just a thought - making it necessary to have those OXPs installed is going to limit the number of people that play it. For example I don't have any of the extra ship OXPs because I don't want to meet some of the massively powerful ships they have being flown by a lowly pirate. (Although renegades and assassins keep my life interesting!).

So would it be possible to get it to use the OXP ships if they're there but if not use something standard?

For a reasled version I'll C&P the models + textures into this OXP so if you don't play with the OXPs installed then the ships only appear as mission ships. But keeping the download file size down for a test. :wink:

You could offer it as a seperate set of 'denaturated' OXPs wich have their vitality(script) removed, as well as have the shiproles not generic 'pirate' etc.
for those that don't want to use the OXP's referenced.
