Ogre Gorge Gouger (Python)[SOLVED]

Hi,

For some reason i am getting an infinite loop and I cant work out why.
Surely the loop should end when the time == 20?

here’s the code and equipment.

# You only have 20 seconds until the ogre horde arrives!
# Grab as much gold as you can, then retreat to your base and wall it off!
while hero.time < 20:
    # Collect coins
    
    coins = hero.findNearest(hero.findItems())
    coin = coins
    
    if coin.value == 3 or coin.value == 2:
        hero.move(coin.pos)
    


Many Thanks :slight_smile:

is that your full codeeeee

hi, no it wasnt.

the full code is here.

# You only have 20 seconds until the ogre horde arrives!
# Grab as much gold as you can, then retreat to your base and wall it off!
while hero.time < 20:
    # Collect coins
    
    coins = hero.findNearest(hero.findItems())
    coin = coins
    
    if coin.value == 3 or coin.value == 2:
        hero.move(coin.pos)
    
    
while hero.pos.x > 16:
    # Retreat behind the fence
    hero.say("I should retreat")
    hero.move({"x" : 17 , "y" : 38 })
    
# Build a fence to keep the ogres out.
hero.buildXY("fence", 21, 38)

change it to if the precode is wrong.

which while am i changing?
i tried the top one and the hero then cant decide what to do.
if i change the bottom one he just builds the fence before picking up coins.

change the second and delete the say message.

Still has an infinite loop.

# You only have 20 seconds until the ogre horde arrives!
# Grab as much gold as you can, then retreat to your base and wall it off!
while hero.time < 20:
    # Collect coins
    
    coins = hero.findNearest(hero.findItems())
    coin = coins
    
    if coin.value == 3 or coin.value == 2:
        hero.move(coin.pos)
    
    
if hero.pos.x > 16:
    # Retreat behind the fence
    
    hero.move({"x" : 17 , "y" : 38 })
    
# Build a fence to keep the ogres out.
hero.buildXY("fence", 21, 38)

change that to

coin = hero.findNearestItem()

change that to

if coin:

Ok so the hero now picks coins up but for some reason he wont move behind the barrier before building the fence in the gap?

# You only have 20 seconds until the ogre horde arrives!
# Grab as much gold as you can, then retreat to your base and wall it off!
while hero.time < 20:
    # Collect coins
    coin = hero.findNearestItem()
    if coin:
        hero.move(coin.pos)
    
    
if hero.pos.x > 16:
    # Retreat behind the fence
    
    hero.move({"x" : 15 , "y" : 36 })
    
# Build a fence to keep the ogres out.
hero.buildXY("fence", 21, 38)

i’ve had another look at it and it the hero.move({"x" : 15 , "y" : 36 }) that wont work.
it just ignores my code.

I admire your minimal armour :slight_smile:

pos = {"x" : 15 , "y" : 38 }
while  hero.pos.x > 16: # while instead of if
    if hero.isReady("jump")and hero.distanceTo(pos) > 10:
        hero.jumpTo(pos)
    else:
        hero.move(pos)

make a function moveAndJump(pos) following the same pattern and use it also to collect coins.
What is your main language javascript or python?

Yeah sure thing.

I got the 60 gold btw using minimal changes to the base code (i gave myself a little extra time).

It was cheeky but it worked.

Thanks for the help everyone.
This forum is awesome!
