DSL Reborn AI Pack Version 2.0
« on: July 22, 2016, 09:56:57 PM »


Click here to download DSL Reborn 2.0

Three years ago, I released an AI pack known as DSL Reborn, which was to replace the original AI included in DSL to greatly improve for testing your bots against anything that would be included in most if not all DSL-IRL tournaments.  Looking back, while it still accomplishes the goal I made, it does have some flaws with bots that haven't quite benefited from special component packs such as DSC's IRL Components, which is used on 99% of all bots in DSL nowadays.  So I decided to remake it all from scratch, and hopefully everything turned out well.  From the builds themselves, the new and improved AI that said bots have, and even other aesthetics included to benefit.  This pack might even get a patch to even get updated depending on where DSL 2.31/DSL 2.2 CE Update (or Whatever is happening with that update) goes and included for improvements.  That being said: Yes, I would feel fine with this pack being included inside that update project if that's still in development, and it might even get an update in that very patch so who knows.

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy this pack, and thank you all.

Nice, I'd maybe add "Redace's DSL Reborn AI" to the Title so it doesn't get confused with any other similar named packs.

I think this fixes the one biggest issues I had with DSL, for one how all the bots were like "oh I'm going to add skirts so your wedge will be useless", it really felt like they were all trying too hard, and some of the original designs were also completely thrown away instead of trying to keep it close to the original while still being a good bot. Of course this still changes some bots but most keep their original design and really look good in IRL, only critique would be that some of the skins don't look as good, at least on the image posted here.

Tried out some bots, the stock ones seem to be a bit slow(then again the other ones are slow as well, probably just a DSL thing) but otherwise look designed nicely, love how you added a flail to Stingray. Steel Yard Dogs Lightweight has armor around it, right? I saw something flying off and shortly after that the game crashed, probably a one time thing. Only other thing I noticed is how Emergency's Flipper sadly isn't as powerful as Stock's(or at least it didn't look like it would be that strong).

nice job man
Come on guys just leave him alone.  No forum rule exists that ban players from showcasing useless ugly bots.

Are there any plans to update this? I think some stuff could be adjusted a little so some bots don't have slow turning while others race around at game breaking speeds.
I've also had a rather high amount of crashes with Coal Miner, did this happen during testing as well?

Merry Christmas everyone!  I managed to get the Expansion Pack up and ready.  The download is in the original post, but you can also click here for it as well.

Please report back if I have missed any obvious errors.

For those not aware, I have been working on an update for DSL Reborn AI so it can be a little more modernized with a lot of the components used and style of building I have come to nowadays.  The new Download Link is inside the original post.  I hope you enjoy.  :)

Sorry, have been out of the game for a while so I feel like I'm missing something.

I went to download it via the link but got an error message: "the archive is either in unknown format or damaged".

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks
