AI and Autopilot

Apr 24, 2003 ctishman link
With the new AI system, can we buy an autopilot module that takes us from one sector to another, and rings an alarm when a hostile fires, or we reach our destination?

That would be great for trading... Set the autopilot, kick back, and read a book for a few minutes. It would be nice if it were able to use boost well, also... Like along the level of the 250 bounty AIs...

A1k0n can make the bots line up and spell letters in space. He can make it take you from one station to another.

I wanna see the bots spell something... Ooo! Or maybe make the Vendetta logo! :P

When they post on slashdot (shudder) or something, they could have the bots line up in each home sector near the wormhole and say "Welcome to vendetta 3.2.x" and then after a couple seconds they explode, rinse and repeat every minute.

wouldn't that be a good idea for part of the E3 trip :D

letting them fly in formations like the V, the 5, O or some other and then letting them attack in it on another botformation, that would be os so nice "to avoid the word cool :D"

Hell, why not just make the Vendetta client play the game for you?

Heck, why not just play Earth & Beyond if you want the software to play the game for you.

"Push the 'a' button to proceed, human, you are holding up my game!"

Ok , now I feel offended

I was just helping you guys with Ideas for the E3 expo.

It isn't for me, it was just to let the softwarehotshots see that it would be a good idea for investing in your small "but extraordinary" company. That you have something more to offer then all those other MMORPG's out there :D

So not as part of the autopilot, but as part of the enemie AI, to let people see what you are able to let the opponents in the game do. in stead of letting spell some boring Dev's name :D, or you could let them spell the dev's name in that formation :D.

Me already sees 20 bots shaped in a big 5 flying in formation and spelling alkons name :D

Ooh, and can we have it be turn-based?
