comment Giving a Bomberman AI intelligent bomb placement
[cont.] With that in mind, the AI should try to place a bomb as frequently as possible (because placing bombs gives bombs), but it doesn't need to be particularly careful about where the bomb is placed. It does have to be careful about always having a safe place to go. [cont'd]

[cont.] You get 1 point for placing a bomb, but 0 points for destroying a wall. You also get 30 points for a kill, 15 for an assist and -20 for a suicide. [cont'd]

I forgot to give some relevant details about the game. It's a simplified version of Bomberman: no power-ups, players can always place unlimited bombs, and bombs always have maximum range (from one end of the map to the other). The points system is different too... [cont'd]

@Tetrad I've updated my question and now includes some details about how my current AI algorithm works.

@Tetrad I'm in the process of implementing a new algorithm. I'll see how that one goes and post the algorithm here if necessary.

comment How to fake flipping a skeleton in Box2D?
@DevilWithin Yes, I meant flipping it from facing right to facing left. Obviously, what you described is how you would implement the algorithm for finding the flipped position, but are there any quirks related to Box2D that you need to be careful about?

comment How to fake flipping a skeleton in Box2D?
That's one option. But I don't know how well it will work (how fast is it? will the system behave unexpectedly in certain situations?) so I asked here first.

comment Why can we recognize game engines?
"Very often they have big 'Unity Engine' or 'Unreal Technology' logos on startup." Thank you, Captain Obvious! :P

comment In a component/entity system, what's the correct way to implement entity-specific components?
@DavidGouveia But isn't querying for the component type very time consuming? Surely in a decently sized game, this wouldn't be a good solution. And not only that, this allows components to interact in unspecified ways (dependencies are not made clear) and there's no nice way to ensure that the component it is looking for actually exists.
