“The plan is to tweak the existing game mechanics if necessary and add more content:
  • New game modes (endure, domination, capture the flag, etc)
  • New game mechanics (items, hotspots, bot abilities, etc)
  • Co-op online multiplayer
  • More AI parameters

¿Cuál es el estado actual de la versión de acceso anticipado?

“The early access version already has all the core gameplay mechanics implemented and balanced in a polished state and free from major bugs.
The current version includes:
  • Visual AI editor
  • Bot squad customization (4 bot classes, unlockable skins)
  • Tutorial missions
  • 60 missions solo campaign
  • Online multiplayer (ranked, unranked, tournaments and private matches)

BETA 3 IS LIVE - The Good, the Bad and the Beautiful news



New rules

Let’s dive right into it, starting with the bad one.
I introduced 2 new important rules in this version.

The first one limits the size of the AIs you can use in a multiplayer match to 2000 nodes. It only counts actions and conditions in the set of AIs (and sub-AIs) your bots are linked to. Each AI and sub-AI is only counted once.

You can check the size of your AIs from the AI editor:



The second one limits the number of nodes that can be evaluated by each bot on each AI tick to 200 nodes. Once again, it only counts actions and conditions.

To help you monitor it, the AI debugger now shows how many nodes were evaluated in previous tick:



Now there are 2 kinds of reaction to this announcement.
Either your AIs are nothing like those numbers and your reaction is like:



...then cool, you can skip to the next chapter ;)

Or your AIs are pretty huge and you’re more like:



...before you rage quit, please let me explain why I did it.

There are actually 2 reasons.

The first and main one is a game design decision.
I wanted for quite some time to add an AI size limit in order to boost players creativity instead of brute force completion. We know how constraints helps our brain to be more creative. It also offers similar chances to newcomers and well established players… or at least the challenge seems more feasible ;)
The only thing preventing me to do it was the hardcore players telling me it would ruin the immense AIs they've put effort into building for months.

The other reason is technical.
Whatever the optimization level of the game code (which is already quite high), the game just can't evaluate an infinite number of nodes on each tick for each bot without hitting a CPU limit at some point (being it on Android or PC/Mac/Linux). Reminder: each bot checks its AI 4 times per second (every 250ms).
During the latest weeks, I received an increasing number of bad performances reports from players who were matched against ridiculously huge AIs (thousands of nodes deployed, hundreds of nodes evaluated every tick).
That's what convinced me that I had to implement these limits.



I know it means losing a lot of nodes for some of you (most likely you included as you’re reading this). So I asked the community on discord which part of their AIs was consuming the most nodes. And the answer was "counting using tags" for most of Grandmaster players with using complex AIs. Counting time passed since an action, the number of shot fired, the initial resources on the map, etc.
So the good news is this update also includes a big refactoring on the AI system, allowing counters. More about it in the next chapter...

Counters

Bracket yourselves, maths are coming! (got it?)
Introducing built-in counting logic! \o/

You now have 5 counters specific to each one of your bot and 5 counters shared by your whole team (a bit like the existing tags).
Each counter can be set, incremented or decremented via dedicated actions to/by a custom numerical value or an entity count (using filters like any other action in the game). You can for instance set your first bot counter to the number of resources in short or medium range or increment a team counter every time an enemy bot is fleeing, etc.



You can also have counting conditions using a custom value or a counter as parameter. For instance, you can check if the number of remaining resources is greater than 2 or if one of your counter is equal to 10 or compare the number of allies in short range with one of your team counters, etc.



During a match, all your counters can be seen on your side of the screen (bot counters only appear when you select one of your bots):



I can’t wait to see how you will use this new tool!

If you used binary counting via tags so far, you can scratch and replace this (most certainly) big part of your AI with the new built-in counters. It should definitely get you to a more reasonable node count.
If you need help using counters, I recommend you join the discord server and talk with other players who are already using them on the release candidate versions. They seem to appreciate the changes.

Customization system revamp

Beta 2 skin colors and textures were unlocked by customization slot. Each bot has 4 of those slots. So if you wanted to use the same color or texture on 2 of those slots, you had to unlock it twice.
Players feedback suggested that this system was a bit confusing and frustrating. So I decided to rework it and make unlocks independent from the customization slot. Now, once you unlock a texture or a color, you can use it on any customization slot, on any of your bots.

The other change in Beta 3 is about the way you pick the colors you unlock. From now on, you'll unlock colors one by one, not by group anymore. This counterbalances the previous change so the unlock points are not spent too fast.

As a consequence, I had to reset all the colors and textures you unlocked so far. But don't panic, I also refunded the unlock points you spent for them ;)

I also added a new customization pattern on each bot class and a few textures variations, raising the number of possible combinations to a bit more than 8.4 billiards (you can add 15 zeros after the point), which should allow some creativity ;)



New customization options will come in the future. Also I'm not happy at all with the skin setup UI, I'll change that in the future. It's just not the most prioritary branch in my AI right now ^^'

UI scaling

Big screens owners should like this one.
You can now tweak the scaling of the game UI in the settings menu. You should find your ideal configuration whether you like your (UI) buttons big or small.

So thank you guys very much, you should get an in-game reward very soon ;)

If you want to test the next updates before they get released and help me improve and debug it, you just have to switch to the “release-candidate” branch in the Steam app. Here’s how to do it:



Note: this branch is public, so you don't need to enter any password.
Note #2: it’s sometimes required to restart the Steam app when changing branch to get the game updated.

If you do, please join the #release-candidate channel on discord. You will find detailed changelogs, instructions and help. You may even make some new friends in the process.
Please also use it to report bugs and give your feedback on the RC versions.

What's next

In the next update, I’ll try to focus on these topics:

“Gladiabots is without a doubt a little gem. If you have pestered about AI in an RTS game, here is your chance to do better, and it’s easy! The possibilities are incredibly exhaustive, while the interface is surprisingly smooth and accessible.”
Save Or Quit

“If you’re the competitive, analytical type, and willing to treat losses as learning opportunities, you might want to take a look at this one. It’s possible you could get hundreds of hours out of it.”
OldGrizzledDamers

“A clever game, and not without its funny moments, as you destory the entire opposition only to realise all your bots are programmed to huddle around the ball for all eternity because you forgot the "pick up" command.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

Optimized Edition

Buy the "Optimized Edition" bundle and get the game + the content of the "Optimization Pack" DLC:
