Not yet, still in the planning phase, which is me mostly testing sniper setups, brawler setups and tank and drone setups.

It's all a little bit funky because there are 4 race variations of each one with 4 combat styles so trying to come up with a plan of attack.

Sniper, brawler & tank are somewhat straight forward, only issue is the drone setup as you typically orbit the main structure in the anom if it has one so you dont get stuck on anything.

Brawler setup only works if there isn't a giant main structure, some of the structures are huge so its easy to get stuck on it and brawler setups usually involve speed tank as part of it (same with drone).

Sniper you warp in at 100km/70/50km depending on your ship class/range, and just kinda keep at distance and dont let any small ships come at you.

Tank you just sit there so that one is easy.

And i'll need a watch local option, but this isn't too hard either screen scraping or reading log files its not even a full day of programming work.

Btw which one are you most interested in? I can release the bot early in beta stage and only include the combat mode you are most interested and what area of space (which anoms).

In terms of the anom filter, I'm just going to use the style globally (so hidden den, port, yard, haven, etc) and not specify race as that makes way too many matches.

and 1st draft will only support single system anoms. i'll add roaming anoms in the future so you would specify a list of systems to search for anoms.

I think everyone here would be interested in the drone version in the first place (gila/ishtar).
Forgot to mention in the last post,will there be a check if someone is already doing the anomaly?like corp or alliance member.
For the getting stuck option,people mostly farm havens/forsaken hubs and if u use orbit like 50km on a structure getting stuck is really unlikely.

Alright ill start on the drone one, only tedious part of the drone is i need a list of orbit structures the drone should orbit per anom...

Other than that its pretty simple, I can mostly reuse majority of the code im using for the abyss bot.

And for friendlies ill have to create a new overview tab "Friends" etc etc and have the bot be on that one when it lands on the anom.

And some sort of system to SKIP the current anom which will also be used if a diamond rat is on the field and try to warp out before being shot.

I could arrange a list of structures ,atleast for one npc race

I'll start working on design and how it will work. Most likely the 1st version will not do probe scanning, so this means combat sites only. It will also not do DED sites, so those you will have to do manually or you can try and bookmark them and sell them to other players for ISK. (alliance/corps do this)

Once I have the drug manager and support of armor tanking, I will start development.

Key features planned for anomaly bot.
  • Single system or roam modes with user specified solar system list
  • Filter combat sites by min/max difficulty level
  • Watch local for neutrals and war targets, dock up or safe spot + cloak support.
  • Different combat modes: Sniper, Brawler, Tanker
  • Loot wrecks + MTU support.

please do also consider the use of dscan for WH ratting
if someone pops up on dscan the bot warps off to safe location and logs off

I also believe the second type of combat bot (like anomaly mode) will help to deversify character behavior. It will decrease chance of ban.
Cause character activity will be more human like. Not only abyss runing, but something else.
So it is really appreciated and useful.
