Re: [pygame] Google Summer of Code - AI Module


just a warning... in the past year this idea was shot down by other
mentors because there are already python modules for AI.

I would suggest you chose another idea, or be prepared to argue in
your application why your idea is more useful than the existing

One point of difference is that you could try and make graphical
programs to go with each algorithm.  These already exist (like in java
etc), but I'm not sure if they exist for python yet.  That way you
might get support from the Educationally bent mentors(of which there
are a fairly large number) -- since your programs could be used to
teach as well.

Another difference you could use, would be to specify that they are
game specific AI modules.

If you'd like to continue with this application anyway... feel free to
send your application draft over so I can have a look.


*1 existing python AI modules:
