Maize README ------------ Maize is a tool for running virtual micro-mice around virtual mazes. It was designed to illustrate different approaches to AI, and to let people have a go at writing some simple agent-based bots. Running Maize ------------- There are two ways of running Maize, a normal UI for running bots interactively and a demo mode for showing off a sample of bots randomly. Documentation ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To compile documentation, which will be in ./Docs, run $ make docs If you don't have GNU Make, run the full command: $ javadoc -d Docs maize/ui/*.java maize/*.java *.java Compilation ~~~~~~~~~~~ To compile Maize on a system with GNU Make simply run $ make If you don't have Make, you'll have to run the full command: javac maize/ui/*.java maize/*.java *.java Don't worry about compiling the bots, the maze program does that. Running ~~~~~~~ To launch the normal interactive UI simply run: $ java RunMazeUI and to launch the demo, run: $ java RunMazeDemo The program will compile everything in the ./bots/ folder, then launch. Writing bots ------------ Bots must subclass the Bot class, and contain a method that is called at each time tick by the simulation. This method has a number of useful inputs passed to it, and is expected to output a command to control the bot in the maze. Aside from subclassing Bot, bots should implement Serializable so that they can be saved and loaded, and should be in package 'bot' so they can be compiled on- the-fly. Have a look at existing bots, as well as the documentation, for more detailed documentation, or check the source of maize/Bot.java.
