Scanning for rooms to target?

  • Just wondering how you guys do this since I'm working on my room claiming and reserving code and left scratching my head how to target rooms nearby automatically. From what I'm seeing in the API I can expand like a Creeper but what about targeting rooms by name or even their world map position? Just wanting to know this since I can pretty much figure out the rest as needed by using scouts and such.

  • @stormwing0 some people put a Flag in a room they want to remote mine, or expand into. Other people figure out automatically. For example, my bot keeps a record of info on every room it runs into. Then it uses this to select the rooms to exploit or expand into.

  • I'll see about a few ways to do that when I hop back onto a server I can do anything on. 🙂
