Our custom bot code will be coming back soon

Post  Protector on Thu May 19, 2011 10:07 am

Ven will recompile out good custom bot code with the new rev as soon as Ven gets a chance. Please remember Ven has a real job, kids and family life first. Ven has told me it will be done as soon as that time is there to compile the custom code.

Thanks for your understanding.

Tell Ven he rocks! You guys have the best bot script of all the emu servers. You guys should really promote that when beta is over. I'm patiently awaiting to scratch that itch of playing sooo bad =)

*chortle* Why thank you! Though I am a she Laughing I'll try and post on the forums more so folks actually know who I am.

I am hoping to have time to get to this early next week. It takes a lot of time to integrate our bot changes with the emulator revisions. I had really hoped that the emulator bot code would have gotten better.

Thanks for the patience everyone with the server issues we've had lately! Protector really spends a lot of time adding content and building cool stuff for everyone. He has done an amazing job stepping in and getting stuff done!

I'll keep everyone posted on the bot code!

Sorry Ven. I meant tell HER! =)

I have a post in Dev's corner and I've mentioned it several times to Proc, so pardon my obnoxiousness about the topic, but one thing that would GREATLY improve bots would be an order of buffs. IE Clerics cast Hand of Conviction as their first buff since its their best buff.

But even above that, the best thing I can think of right now for bots is to remove Heal Over Times from healers. I can't use a cleric bot in group because that cleric will only HoT me. I need steady pumps of quick heals or regular heals. Cheals are too inneffective and HoT's don't do any good when the mob hits harder than the HoT heals for, leaving you dead and the cleric bot at 89% mana. hehe.

If either of these could be incorporated easily into that bot script that would be amazing!

*chortle* No worries!

I did see your post, and I know Protector has talked to me about it. I wasn't going to do any bot code revisions until I had to since they are pretty detailed. Now that it is time, I will see what I can do with those. Sadly, I'm not as familiar with some of the midrange and higher level buffs, so any feedback like you have in your post would be great. Do you think I should leave the lower level stuff alone, and just focus on the max level spells? Or maybe we can add a toggle for HoTs or CH? *thinks*

Let me dig through the code a bit and I'll come back with questions. I don't remember the order of spellcasting anymore. *laughs*

Make sure that everybody tells Ven thanks hehe. Ven is the CORE of the server you just see me more. We would not have such a great place to play EQ on if it was not for Ven. I know I could never say thanks enough for all that has been done.

I'm not sure how that whole changing will work, I wouldn't worry too much about the low levels since most of the game is 70s based. I spent (30-40 hrs getting to 70) and way many more hours farming/questing at 70. 70s is the main deal for the bots since you can easily work through the lower levels with how they are now. With that said, let me give you feedback on what buffs I use and how I use the bots currently.

I spawn my cleric bot for the following buff - Hand of Conviction. (right now I have to do #bot stripbuffs and wait through pomplei of vie, divine intervention, and aura of devotion, maybe even one more before cleric casts HoC. I click all the others off immediately after HoC is cast and #bot camp cleric)

I spawn my paladin bot for the following buff - Brells Steward Shield. (I wait through 2 of his self buffs and 2 buffs on me before he casts Brells, I click the other 2 off and #bot camp paladin)

I spawn my shaman and let him go through his series of buffs. (These buffs are all fine I just wish that champion and talisman of wunshi were cast first then the other buffs. I pretty much use all of these buffs.)

Lastly I spawn my Druid and he goes through his series of buffs. (Again not a big deal here as I use whatever buffs stick at this point)

Then I spawn my Rangers who go through some of their buffs.

I guess the main thing is having Enchanters cast clarity and haste first, clerics casting their most powerful hp/ac buff, and shamans casting their talisman type buffs, druids their regen and ds buffs.

As for the toggle of ch and HoT I think that would be fine, but I have had so much problem with both of them that I simply camp the cleric now and just use the druid for constant heals. It's WAY more effective.

Here is my thought on bots since I have done alot of running around with them. It would be nice to be able to to call a cleric by name to CH. If we could just make him stand there till he gets a command to CH or hps get so low the he does the fast cast heal. if we could toggle off all buffs and non command given heal( except the fast heal) we could set up marcros for a cleric chain, not sure how hard it would be to get somebody elses bot to target and heal the MT tho. just my thoughts tho. It may be easyier to make a command just for level 70 for raid buffs, but I am not the C++ person Ven is and saying that I could be way off lol.

BTW divine Intervention will save your ass. It has saved sneg alot, And I wanted to add if we can get it where a Ch can be commanded remember it is only 400 mana to cast, second we have uped the max mana regen from items. So if you can get a chain going and have the right gear on them for mana regen( get the BP and Necklace from Vex thal) with your buddy or two helping and having the right amount of clerics you could go a CH chain for along time. People you have to think outside the box with bots. They are not PC's and have good and bad points. You will not have 5 bots you can do everything with. diffent bot groups handle diffrent mobs better. play around with them, dont get pissed because you die and have to start over. that was part of EQ lol. Dieing and starting over. Things are alot easyier on server due to bots and some things we have changed but is not a breeze either. Post your finds about what works best on the forums, work together. Judah and some others are taken advanted of this. We do listen so please post.

You're right about DI it can be pretty useful at times, but usually now I only die when my cleric (box not bot) is oom. The druid and shaman spot me enough so even if DI fired it wouldn't help me out but for a few extra seconds of tanking hehe. I like the idea of a cheal command. I see two possible problems, if you aren't playing a tank it may be hard to get the cleric box to cheal another bot with command prompt. I could be wrong though. The other problem would be if you are playing a tank and you have to switch targets to then command prompt a cheal. Basically you could only have one cleric bot in your group chealing through command prompt (IE like bind affinity works without targetting the bot), which for me would be awesome because I could just drop one of my dps bots and roll with a dru, sha, and clr in group to heal while my box cleric carries all dps and chains with the bot cleric. I know this isn't how everyone else on the server sets theirselves up, as I've seen most people running with cleric and using tank bots to take advantage of the early AAs. At least those people who are 1 grouping can have 2 clerics for heals, a tank, a slower, and 2 dps.
