Cool stuff, S-32.
Input is appreciated. :)
-Arrogance is a quantity devoid of quality...
-As a client once told me "This is my story, and it's sticking to me!"
-Relationships these days are like the 'Arrival' section of the airport: a lot of baggage is being revealed in one place, and not a lot of it is being correlated to its real owners...

Hmm, I found this nice Starcore Quote from his signups for the third AI pack.

Quote
30 teams of 6-bots each (180 combat-tough stock bots in total)
 New and improved AI routines
      > Omni (Smartzoned Weapons for Aggressive Choppers, Pokers and/or Flippers, Extra code for Spinners along with the SZ weapons, and Separate Selfrighting in one AI package)
      > Flyer (with proximity detector)
      > Bee (Spinner plus Whipper for viable and more powerful Sit-n-Spin and Full Body Spinners)  
More wedges per prior requests
Now also Anti-Wedge bots and teams
2 Flyers for double your flying enjoyment
A few SHWs for people that need stronger competition
Hot new teams by some of the best bot builders in the RA2 community
Once we wrap up this phase of testing, review and tuning the pack will released.
Put this onto your signature if you were part of this crappy fad in '03.

it's a pity that many link are not archived : I like to see that old fashion bots with their big chassis but that still have something more realistic than our DSL bots. they did really look like sore bots we should have found in real life.

Oh, so it looks like I joined the official boards sometime in the fall of 2001. Wow, it's been nearly 8 years already?

Hmm, I noticed some of the pictures are incomplete, as in missing the .png part. I'm collecting them by using the properties function. I currently have Inf's first bot.
