PostSubject: Re-Reapplication   Thu Jun 25, 2015 1:09 am

Hello, everyone!

I'm TheCreator and have been watching this game long before version 0.2.0 was released. I have made a couple of applications and re-applications before; however until now I didn't really have any knowledge of c++ and coding (but now I am getting a degree in it).

You can view some work I did with neural networks a while back here:

Basically, there are three types of creatures that hunt each other. The fun starts at 1:15.

Anyway, the reason I want to join is because I saw the "Thinking about the AI" thread on the new forum and wanted to contribute with some prototypes. I learned quite a bit when working on the above program and know about a lot of optimizations that could have happen that I didn't get to. I know that you guys decided against using ANN, but I have plenty of other ideas that I want to try in action.

Hope I get accepted!

Welcome (again) Creator!

I was actually wondering if you'd ever apply to join the team after seeing some of the useful things you posted on the subreddit, so it's great to see you here, especially if as you say you're getting a degree in coding.

For now, to get an account on the new forums where AI is being discussed (it would be awesome to have you involved too), you'll need to PM your email to someone who's already registered there. I can do that for you if you want(I also extend that offer to anyone who's part of the developer user group on this forum who hasn't yet been invited).

We're looking forward to having you on board!

That's a really cool video, it's a very good learning algorithm which would probably work for the microbe stage, good to have you on board.

That is a cool simulation! If you don't mind I'd love to have a look at the source code!

We'd ofc. love to have you on board with programming! Prototypes or otherwise. We've had this issue open for a while https://github.com/Revolutionary-Games/Thrive/issues/190 regarding the current AI, maybe that's a task for you!

I'll be happy to help get the codebase set up and any further questions!

I'll be sure to pm you. Also, not sure if I have already said this, but I am a huge fan of your music. Keep up the good work.

Thanks! It would probably work for the cell stage, which doesn't require too many inputs/outputs of the neural network, but might pose a problem for the later stages, and if I am not mistaken we want to have the same algorithm extend through-out all the stages. As mentioned in the video, it is also very slow and took me 6 hours—I think— before I got any useful results. At the moment, I am trying to think of a new prototype that could work for the microbe stage. I'll post my findings on the dev forum.

Thanks! Sadly, I do not have access to the source code anymore :(, however I am fairly certain I emailed it to you a while back when I posted it on the subreddit :P. Would you like me to resend it?

I'll look into the thread you linked, as well as the new forum for ideas for an AI prototype. Hopefully I'll come up with something good!
