I have been working on Hellfire for quite some time now, learning many new things about the game as I go along. I have seen many ways that bots have worked with Hero, a lot of these I have found ways to include in Hellfire.
With the recent changes to the targeting in Hellfire for Mining and Gathering, I now see where I am at a crossroads on a few ideas. Although the targeting is a lot more accurate and reliable than before, some targets leave the bot "out of the area/blocked by objects" for locating the next in the series.
I am close to having a working pathfinding routine to guide the bot around obstacles and running to NPCs, which I will include in a version soon. I still haven't cracked opening the NPCs, but I am working on that.
I have a lot of time in developing Hellfire (5 interesting years) with David helping with coding and suggestions. Since his passing last year, it has been hasn't been as easy making improvements. What I am needing to figure out is this:
1. How many of you out there are actually using Hellfire?
So far, I know of only 5 that I send notes to via Skype. The last post here was from me, back in Sept when I released the latest update.
2. I intend on continuing developing Hellfire, but I need feedback on it to help improve it. Send comments to
, and if you want to chat in-game let me know.
