Backstory

Hi! I'm Scott, I'm from Victoria BC Canada, currently working for Semaphore Solutions but previously worked for Flytographer and Redbrick. Here's a few Battlesnake related things I made that you may have heard of: - The Redbrick Robosnake, which went 42-3 as a bounty snake in 2017: https://rdbrck.com/news/building-bounty-snake-post-mortem/ - Son of Robosnake, which went a whopping 71-3 as a bounty snake in 2018: https://rdbrck.com/news/son-robosnake-aggressive-bounty-snake/ - Mojave, the prettiest Battlesnake arena that also lets you play snakes from different years against each other: https://github.com/smallsco/mojave/ I was a volunteer at the 2019 event and hopefully will be again at the next Victoria Live!

    Mabel is named after a mouse that lives at Market Square. The way she bravely scurries across the office floor, seeking out food, but shying away from people, was my inspiration for the design of this Battlesnake. Mabel is written in Lua and runs on the OpenResty server, deployed to fly.io using a Docker container.

    Private Royale Lua Scared Heuristic Iterative Deepening MinMax Tree Search 1.0 Latency

  • Purple Heart ūüíú

    A hybrid snake featuring pluggable heuristics. Currently using a Robo-like heuristic (with a few improvements) for duels and standard games. Still working on a Mabel-like heuristic for royale/constrictor games. Has a comprehensive unit test suite. This snake gets its' name because it runs using the Heart web server (giving 2x faster response times than OpenResty, which was used by my previous snakes). Written in Lua, running in Docker and hosted by Fly.io.

    Private Royale Lua Hungry Alpha-Beta Heuristic Tree Search ūüíú Latency

  • Robosnake Mk. III Rev. B

    My first snake - originally created for Redbrick to use as a Bounty Snake in 2017 - Robo picks the snake closest to it and predicts that snake's moves roughly 6 turns ahead. It more-or-less ignores all other snakes in play, making it great at duelling and terrible at everything else. Robo is written in Lua and runs on the OpenResty web server in a Docker container, hosted by Fly.io. More info here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlEgqnxEWdc
