# Sand Snakes (Python) These levels are throwing me for a loop[SOLVED]

Hey guys,

I’m getting really stuck with these loops. My character just keeps walking straight in to a mine. I have changed the indentation a few times of the MoveXY but it just doesnt work.

Here is my code. Many thanks.

``````while True:
coins = hero.findItems()
coinIndex = 0
nearest = None
nearestDistance = 9999

# Loop through all the coins to find the nearest one.
while coinIndex < len(coins):
coin = coins[coinIndex]
coinIndex += 1
distance = hero.distanceTo(coin)
# If this coin's distance is less than the nearestDistance
if distance < nearestDistance:
# Set nearest to coin
nearest = coin
# Set nearestDistance to distance
nearestDistace = distance

# If there's a nearest coin, move to its position. You'll need moveXY so you don't cut corners and hit a trap.
if coin:
hero.moveXY(coin.pos.x, coin.pos.y)
``````

Did you mean to make it that high?

thats pre-loaded code. its supposed to be like that.

Okay, thanks. I can’t find an error, sorry. But maybe @abc, @PeterPalov, @Lydia_Song or/and @milton.jinich could help 1 Like

still wont work.
he walks in to a mine (a different one but still).
her is the new code.

``````while True:
coins = hero.findItems()
coinIndex = 0
nearest = None
nearestDistance = 9999

# Loop through all the coins to find the nearest one.
while coinIndex < len(coins):
coin = coins[coinIndex]
coinIndex += 1
distance = hero.distanceTo(coin)
# If this coin's distance is less than the nearestDistance
if distance < nearestDistance:
# Set nearest to coin
nearest = coin
# Set nearestDistance to distance
nearestDistace = distance

# If there's a nearest coin, move to its position. You'll need moveXY so you don't cut corners and hit a trap.

hero.moveXY(coin.pos.x, coin.pos.y)
``````

Change the coin to nearest

changing it to nearest still doesnt work 20 char

``````# This field is covered in firetraps.  Thankfully we've sent a scout ahead to find a path.  He left coins along the path so that if we always stick to the nearest coin, we'll avoid the traps.

# This canyon seems to interfere with your findNearest glasses!
# You'll need to find the nearest coins on your own.

while True:
coins = hero.findItems()
coinIndex = 0
nearest = None
nearestDistance = 9999

# Loop through all the coins to find the nearest one.
while coinIndex < len(coins):
coin = coins[coinIndex]
coinIndex += 1
distance = hero.distanceTo(coin)
# If this coin's distance is less than the nearestDistance
if distance < nearestDistance:
# Set nearest to coin
nearest = coin
# Set nearestDistance to distance
nearestDistace = distance

# If there's a nearest coin, move to its position. You'll need moveXY so you don't cut corners and hit a trap.

hero.moveXY(nearest.pos.x, nearest.pos.y)

Are you using the Mimic pet?

no. i have no pet and i have also removed alot of my armour etc.
here is a screenshot.

I’m actually stumped. I looked at your code and it’s the EXACT SAME code as mine. @Chaboi_3000 is this a bug?

Thanks for looking in to this for me.
