What’s next for The Kepler Bot?

So you may now heard of The Kepler Bot, as you saw in the header of my website or on discordbots.org. If not, then it’s basically a bot that displays a mining area in a text environment, nothing too special but still really cool.

I’m quite proud of the popularity the bot has gotten, even if it doesn’t offer nearly as much as other bots do. You’re probably wondering what you’ll expect in the next few weeks of development. So sit back, relax, and read this post on what you can expect! Most of this might be small features, but they should make you still excited 😀

More Voting Prizes!

Even though getting 100 experience is great, I’d like to add quite a few more options. I might add some crate randomizer thing, which there would be four crates, Common, Uncommon, Rare and Legendary! Each crate will give out 5 possible prizes:

Common Crate – 40% chance

  • 50 Experience
  • 20 Gold + XP
  • 20 Iron + XP
  • 100 Stone
  • 30 Coal + XP

Uncommon Crate – 30% chance

  • 100 Experience
  • 25 Gold + XP
  • 30 Iron + XP
  • 10 Diamonds + XP
  • Go up a level

Rare Crate – 20% Chance

  • 250 Experience
  • 50 Gold + XP
  • 15 Diamonds + XP
  • 25 Diamonds + XP
  • Bonus Crate!

Legendary Crate – 10% Chance

  • Voting Pickaxe
  • 500 Experience
  • 1 Keplerium Ore + XP
  • 50 Diamonds + XP
  • Bonus Crate!

Those look like some nice crate selections. They’ll come real soon! Meanwhile keep voting at discordbots.org!

More Pickaxes

Even though the current pickaxes are nice, people may want more eventually as I saw someone get the diamond pickaxe almost in an instant, so I might add more pickaxes which will be harder to get.

  • Voting Pickaxe: 10% higher chances of gold, random ore than Diamond Pickaxe. You can win it from a Legendary Voting Crate, The chances are of getting one are actually 2%!
  • Donator Pickaxe: 15% higher chances of diamonds and random ore than the Diamond Pickaxe. You can get it by donating just one dollar to Kepler Teddy in the bot server or on my website! You also get twice the items!
  • Golden Pickaxe: Has Stone, Coal, Iron, Gold, Redstone and Lapis. You need 60 Gold to craft this pickaxe
  • Redstone Pickaxe: Has Stone, Coal, Iron, Gold, Redstone, Lapis and Diamonds. You will find 20% more Redstone than before. You will need 60 Redstone to craft this pickaxe
  • Lapis Pickaxe: Has Stone, Coal, Iron, Gold, Redstone, Lapis and Diamonds. You will find 20% more Lapis than before. You will need 60 Lapis to craft this pickaxe
  • Keplerium Pickaxe: Has basically everything. Known as the Ultimate Pickaxe in a way. You will require 6 Keplerium ore to craft it.

More Ores

Redstone, Lapis and Keplerium ore will now be available! To find Redstone and Lapis, you will either need a Gold, Redstone, Lapis or Keplerium Pickaxe!

Redstone Ore will have a 5% Find Rate at normal. Redstone will be used to speed up wait times for Regenerating Land or the Mining wait time. There will be those two upgrades which have three tiers. The first tier will cost 60 Redstone, The second will cost 120, and the final will cost 240.

  • No Tier: 180 Regenland Time, 5 Second Mining Cooldown
  • First Tier: 150 Regenland Time, 4 Second Mining Cooldown
  • Second Tier: 120 Regenland Time, 3 Second Mining Cooldown
  • Final Tier: 90 Regenland Time, 2 Second Mining Cooldown

Lapis Lazuli Ore will have a 3% Find Rate at normal. Lapis will be used to put enchantments on your pickaxe. Each enchantment has 3 tiers.

  • Fortune I: 1-2 per Ore
  • Fortune II: 1-3 per Ore
  • Fortune III: 2-4 per Ore (The Fortune enchantments can be combined with the donator picks, possibly providing 4 times the ores!)
  • Luck I: 5% higher chance of ores
  • Luck II: 10% higher chance of ores
  • Luck III: 15% higher chance of ores
  • XP Boost I: 25% More XP
  • XP Boost II: 50% More XP
  • XP Boost III: 100% More XP

Keplerium Ore will be extra rare at a only 1/500 chance of finding, the other way you can get it if you win it in a Legendary Crate! You’ll need 6 Keplerium Ore to make the Keplerium Pickaxe! 😀

Updates to current features

  • Default wait time to mine again will be 5 seconds
  • kb!multimine recreate will become kb!multimine regenland
  • A timer for when you last voted will be added at the bottom of the voting link when you do kb!vote, the timer will be the amount you have to wait until you can vote again.
  • Voting will give you a crate instead of 100 Experience.
  • Timers for regenerating land will be in minutes:seconds form instead of just seconds.
  • Data will be put in a database
  • The bot will now display the servers or miners. It will switch every now and then.
  • Pickaxes you own will be stored in an array. But the pick: variable will still be there, now known as the current pickaxe held.
  • There will be more than one arena. There will be arenas for different pickaxes. You can only go to the higher arenas if you have that pickaxe. But you can go to the lower tier arenas if you wish. Random ore will still be present.
  • Arenas will hold a max up to 10 pickaxes. It will start with 0 arenas until a user creates one. The arenas pickaxe type will be the creators.
  • kb!craft will become kb!craft <pickaxe>

More Commands!

Plenty more commands will be added as well! Here are all the commands in their specific categories!

Mining Commands:

kb!crate

This opens up the crates that you earn from voting! Read more about the crates quite a bit above.

kb!multimine <arena number>

This changes the arena you are in, if that arena doesn’t exist it will set it to the last arena.

kb!pickaxe <pickaxe>

This will switch your pickaxe to whatever is specified.

kb!upgrade

This will list the upgrades you can get and how much they cost.

kb!upgrade <number of enchantment>

This will buy the enchantment specified. Otherwise it will let you know if that enchantment doesn’t exist or you don’t have enough.

kb!donate

This will give you a link to the donate page.

Simple Commands

kb!tictactoe <opponent>

Starts a tictactoe game with the opponent specified. Acts like a normal tic tac toe game. If someone gets three in a row, they win! And if they have a mining user. They can win 20 XP! If it’s a draw, they both win 10 XP. You can’t start another tic tac toe game if you are currently in one. And both users have to confirm. If one doesn’t confirm, then the game doesn’t start. If one person takes more than 3 minutes. Then the other player only wins 10 XP. You will have to wait 5 minutes before you can start another tic tac toe game. And you’ll only win XP for the first five games.

kb!tictactoe <x-axis 1-3> <y-axis 1-3>

Puts a marker on the position specified. It goes to the next person.

kb!choose [item1] [item2] [item3] (etc.)

Chooses an item that is provided.

Other Commands

kb!servers

Tells you the amount of servers The Kepler Bot is on.

kb!users

Tells you the amount of users that have at least mined once.

That’s it for now! There will be more than on this page so stay tuned! 😀

The Adventures of Coding a Discord Bot

Me starting to write the basic code of my own mining discord bot!

Everyone uses Discord, right? No? Well, quite the majority do. So I’ve decided to turn my game into a Discord Bot! Creating a Discord Bot seemed like a good way to spread my coding influence, so I started creating one!

The Beginning

I wanted to start quickly and add a lot of stuff! I asked some people around Discord for tutorials and one pointed me towards Dapper Dino’s Bot Tutorials. I watched thru majority of them not understanding much, but my bot was set up and I could flip coins and roll dice.

That wasn’t enough so I followed a few more and added the music part to The Kepler Bot, then I wasn’t sure where to go from here. Until one day on my “Recreating Discord Miner into a Game” video, someone commented or DM’ed me, I can’t remember anymore. But they suggested that I turn my Miner Game back into a Discord Bot. Then I started to think…

The Completion

So I soon realized I was programming in Node.js, which was real similar to what I was used to programming in. Known as processingJS, which was linked to JavaScript, which is also what Node.js was also linked to, basically a lot of the stuff I knew could be used here too, which I thought was pretty neat. I soon figured my way thru Custom Emojis with some help from the mighty SpongeJr, who has also created a bot that acts like a role-play game!

I started using for loops, if statements, variables, math commands (well those were a little different but I still got used to them) and a lot more! Obviously rect(); or ellipse(); wouldn’t work as I was dealing with Discord.js and that was made completely of text and emojis, so I had to think a little creative if I wanted to create a mining scenario. Soon enough there were a lot of files in a lot of folders and it was hard to get around. But there was a working mining system, inventories, multiplayer mining, regeneration of land, and plenty more! But I soon realized that the basic code that Dapper Dino provided plus my code didn’t work too well, and things got easily confused like there were two help pages and classes everywhere which I currently don’t understand but I assume they are similar to functions (Which they probably are not :/), so I decided that it was time for a full rewrite of the entire code! Well I’d still have the data separate so there wouldn’t be a thousand lines to scroll thru if I wanted to add something new. The reason I wanted to rewrite the code is I was trying to access the Client (Known as bot in code) variable from the main file, but the other files were in a big folder. So it would be hard to access a file outside of the folder. I spent half an hour figuring it out but no luck.

The Rewrite

Thru the day I added the necessary basics like for when the bot turns on, the message function, and the commando classes. The rewrite was going great! Everything was working out! I created functions for each of the commands, everything would sync a lot better than before because they could access the same variables which saves a lot of code! I decided not to keep the music functions as I don’t see my bot as a music bot, more of a fun and helpful bot! All of the commands work fine and the command I got stuck on one point now will work much better!

And even today I’m still working on the rewrite and adding more commands! Like finishing up the top list command, adding support to check each others inventories, trading, bonuses and possibly moderation commands! I’ll put the link down here to the second and third videos when they are released, but for now, stay tuned!

City Dash: Update #1: Booting Up!

Hello, fans! These are updates for my upcoming App: City Dash! I will answer some questions and add a few of my own!

First: News, News, News.

I have designed a silly poster for City Dash, it shows what the title may look like in the menu. It also shows a character you can buy (0.99$) in the first actual update of City Dash when released, this could come out in March. it will be called: 1.1 – DJ Update.

20171021_113304

Enough planning ahead though! I’m still working on Udemy, with Unity, I’m trying to walk through the tutorials, and currently, I’m making a Flappy Bird game.

I’m still wondering if I should give them all hair? Or just the Dj man? It’s your decision!

20171021_113319

Choose between yes or no, say in the comments of this post!

Second: The New Laptop

Some of you in the comments on “My Message” asked what computer did you get? Well, I got this Asus Rog Strix Gaming Notebook from Canadian Computers here. here are some Faqs about it:

  • Processor: Intel i7 7th Generation 7600K 2.8 GHz
  • Graphics Card: Intel HD Graphics 630 AND Nvidia Geforce 1050Ti.
  • Display: 1920 x 1080
  • RAM: 16 GBs
  • Storage: 1 TB (930 GB)

20171021_113335

Its perfect for programming and gaming!

Third: Minecraft Video Making

As you know I like making Minecraft videos! I use the free version of Bandicam to make them. Currently, I have plans for more How To Build videos as well as a new series called Kepler’s Builds. A long series where you watch me build cities, houses, forests, planes, roads, minecart rails, and whatever I desire! Treeliving is down for two reasons, One, not really much of a survival person, more of a builder, and Two, I lost the second video. So I couldn’t upload it. You can also suggest ideas in the comments of my videos! I usually play Minecraft in a smaller windowed screen, otherwise, I get headaches. but I play with Fancy graphics and View Distance up to 20. And my FPS (Frames Per Second) stays at 250 FPS. With Sildurs basic shaders, its 200 FPS. With Mr. Meeps Amazing Shaders, its 150 FPS. even with Sonic Ethers Unbelievable shaders, it still hangs at 80 FPS! I Can’t make any videos until around Monday / Tuesday because I have a Cold 😦

Thank you for your time to read this! 😀
