Suggestion Backlog

Recommended Posts

This forum section was created for community members to post ideas and suggestions on possible new capabilities or feature additions for the CoC bot. We have collected YEARS of great ideas and have a huge backlog. :D:

 

Please read the previous suggestion posts before making a new thread with your splendid new idea, as most likely 2-3 people have already suggested it.  Any new suggestion threads that are duplicates of previous posts will be rejected and/or deleted with zero explanation.

Must Have Patience!

The development team may or may not answer threads in this forum, but all of them get read.

 

Even if you have the worlds greatest suggestion, it still takes time to write code, debug, test and make sure it is reliable. Since the entire development team works part time on evenings and weekends, it can take MONTHS before even the best ideas are released as new features. The board rules specifically prohibit thread bumping, so please don't get impatient and bump a suggestion unless you want a warning.

Comments on the Backlog below:

Even if a suggestion/idea is listed, that does not mean it will ever be coded or released. It only means it is on the list.

 

Every item on this list has same priority, so the order on the list means nothing.

Backlog:

  • Major Clean up - remove all old unused code/variables, improve standardization, better organize the chaos.  (On Going)
  • User customizable troop training order in GUI (Done)
  • Base statistics saved in profile
  • Wiki Manual for Bot (exists - Need volunteer staff editors!)
  • User selectable days added to existing time settings for donation, request, and Drop CC
  • Detect maintenance breaks and adjust wait time to restart bot (Done)
  • Add dark troop tombstone to tombstone clearing option
  • Add configuration to army composition for Loonion attack  (Attack CSV)
  • Add image search for air defenses to enable smart air attacks (Done)
  • Improve TH detection accuracy  (Done)
  • Add detection for collectors in center of base to dead base smart attack to enable GUI skip option (ongoing - accuracy/reliability issues?)
  • Add user selection for separate hero activation type (timed/auto) for each hero to GUI  (Done)
  • Add user configurable donation order 
  • Add more bot detection prevention methods:
    • Randomize troop deployment click locations (Attack CSV)
    • Randomize main bot code loop order (Done)
  • Rewrite code for Localization of alternate languages including:
    • Local donation language (Ongoing - Cyrillic & Chinese characters available, currently creating Korean and Persian)
    • Customize number separator based on local standard
    • Translated logs (lots of work)  (Rejected - MBR staff develops in English and foreign debug logs will slow bugfix)
  • Add weak base image search for defenses that move (x-bow, inferno Tower) [ Ongoing - development of new image search in progress) (done)
  • Separate Grand Warden "Eternal Tome" activation settings in GUI from other heroes
  • Improve upgrade "conflict" management to better use available builders and resources available when multiple types of upgrades enabled
  • Custom train order for spells
  • Un-pause timer to restart bot when paused to long. (done)
  • Ignore min resource settings when upgrade cost equals storage maximum for TH level
  • Collect Treasury

 

Suggestions/Ideas desired, attempted and rejected until a miracle solution is found:

  • Add weak base image search for buildings being upgraded
  • Map wall locations to avoid TH Snipe of TH behind walls, and collectors behind walls
  • Add weak base image search for walls (code available, but too slow to be practical during attacks)
  • Anything involving detection of troops on the map (not enough pixels to reliably detect)
  • Add detection for poor internet connection and adjust bot timing for delays in SC server response
  • Removal of trees, shrubs, rocks, bushes, mushrooms, gem box, or any other obstacle.  (Done - can remove some obstacles that proved reliable to find)
  • Automatic Revenge check mode
  • Use of local or global statistics to adjust bot settings to improve farming efficiency
  • Change user options while the bot is running or paused without needing to stop/change/start. (active code in GUI can create errors that require PC reboot)
  • Add default custom army training/spells/deployment for complicated attacks such as GoWiPe, GoWiWi, or GoWiWiPe. (Done - AttackCSV feature)
  • Automatic change to English language
  • Add SQLite database for attack tracking (Done)
  • Local language OCR for different servers (Requires too many images)
  • Auto drop/remove Clan Castle dark spells for Sharing is Caring achievement (Done)
  • Add Player blacklist to donations (Done)
  • Changes to training:
    • Don't delete troops after each attack
    • Don't train archers if army camps won't be full
  • Use SC suggested upgrade from builder window to select upgrades.  (Done - Auto Upgrade)
  • Switch user bases during troop training to manage more than one base/account (Done)
  • Use lightning spells on small buildings to get extra percentage (Experimental - SmartZap FTW)
  • Drop lightning spells on DE drills (ongoing tests - many accuracy/reliability issues)  (Done)
  • Drop lightning spells on hero platforms to increase win percentage. (Experimental - SmartZap FTW)

 

Rejected Suggestions:

  • Bots for any other games (Clash Royale, Boom Beach, etc)
  • Anything to do with Clash of Clans WAR!
    • non-farming army creation
    • War attacking
    • Sandbox or practice war attacks
    • Custom war only donations while farming
    • Custom attack plan creation for later playback
  • Experience growth via massive donations; including:
    • Donate mostly code for Request and Leave clans
    • Automatic user accept and kick functions (I.E. GTFO clans)
    • Clan find/join/donate/leave or clan hopping functions
  • Experience growth via Goblin village attacks
  • Using spells in normal dead base attack (not efficient for farming, AttackCSV is available)
  • Custom troop training based on clan chat requests
  • Database with attack success/failure by base layout
  • Custom modes to automatically get achievement gems:
    • Auto trophy push mode
    • Auto wall buster
    • Attack builder huts
    • Fast Donating, etc
  • Auto posting/spamming anything into Local or Global chat (includes Friendly Challenges, clan invites, clan advertising)
  • Any feature that requires customization of Bluestacks internal default files (CSV or otherwise)
  • Conversion of the bot to run on Apple Mac without the need for Windows OS
  • Convert AutoIt code into APK to run native on Android
  • Automatic search with user notification timers/alarms for manual attack (Auto search/manual attack already exists)
  • Automatically accept players that meet criteria
  • Copy base layouts
  • Attack statistics upload into online database and provide comparison on website (High cost to support entire community - requires monthly charge)
  • GenyMotion emulator support (attempted - has bad lag issues even on fast PC)

 

And there you have it, the current Bot development plan.

(List subject to change constantly and without notice) :D:

Cheers!

OK, here are some explanations for the rejected suggestions:

Suggestions/Ideas desired, attempted and rejected until a miracle solution is found:

  • Add weak base image search for defenses that move (x-bow, inferno Tower, hero's) Require too many images to be effective.
  • Add weak base image search for buildings being upgraded Needs images
  • Map wall locations to avoid TH Snipe of TH behind walls, and collectors behind walls Looking for all walls will take too long
  • Clan castle finding and detection for use in attacks Too many badges. No good way to use in an attack
  • Add detection for poor internet connection and adjust bot timing for delays in SC server response Needs more testing
  • Removal of trees, shrubs, rocks, bushes, mushrooms, gem box, or any other obstacle. Needs images
  • Automatic Revenge check mode Not useful for most people, probably not profitable
  • Use of local or global statistics to adjust bot settings to improve farming efficiency If everyone uses same stats, loot will go away due to all bots going to same location
  • Change user options while the bot is running without needing to stop/change/start. Autoit is single threaded. Only one thing can happen at a time. Cannot load while running.
  • Add default custom army training/spells/deployment for complicated attacks such as GoWiPe, GoWiWi, or GoWiWiPe. Training and attacking are very complex. Can sort of do this with Attack CSV

 

Rejected Suggestions:

  • Anything to do with Clash of Clans WAR! Bot is a farming bot. Don't even play the game if you want it all to be automated.
  • non-farming army creation
    • War attacking
    • Sandbox or practice war attacks
    • Custom war only donations while farming
    • Custom attack plan creation for later playback
  • Experience growth via massive donations; including: Sign of a botter. Few people will use. Noobs may make mistakes and kick everyone out.
    • Donate mostly code for Request and Leave clans
    • User accept and kick functions for GTFO clans
    • Clan find/join/donate/leave or clan hopping functions
  • Experience growth via Goblin village attacks. Another sign of botter.
  • Custom troop training based on clan chat requests. Hard to implement with current training system.
  • Database with attack success/failure by base layout. Require thousands of images.
  • Custom modes to automatically get achievement gems:
    • Auto trophy push mode. Hard to make attack that is reliable.
    • Auto wall buster. Can do this by training 100% wall breakers.
    • Attack builder huts. Attacking bases normally will usually get builder huts.
    • Fast Donating, etc
  • Auto posting/spamming anything into Local or Global chat. Obvious bot.
  • Auto reply in clan chat after receiving or giving donations. Chat would be spammed by bot donating 24/7.
  • Fully autonomous automatic upgrades. Requires lots of images.
  • Any feature that requires customization of Bluestacks internal default files (CSV or otherwise). Supercell can easily detect and ban.
  • Conversion of the bot to run on Apple Mac without the need for Windows OS. Too many windows native libraries used. No AutoIt available.
  • Convert Autoit code into APK to run native on Android. Same as above.
  • Automatic search with user notification timers/alarms for manual attack. Auto search/manual attack already exists.
