Mojang should use a genetic algorithm for the horse breeding mechanism. It is a very simple algorithm but allows for better selection of breeds at a better rate. To show you how simple it is: You assign a binary string for each horse characteristic, say health-speed-jumping. This gives you two strings when you breed, horse1 string and horse2 string each composed of three binary numbers. You would then split each string a random point say health-speed and jumping. You would then use crossover to create 2 new strings: health-speed(1)jumping(2), health-speed(2)jumping(1). The last step is to apply mutation to the two new string by randomly flipping a bit in each string. If the mutation result exceeds the characteristic limit, then you should try again, or not mutate.
After mutation you need to decide what string to use. You do this by applying a fitness function to the two strings which measures the string against a predetermined criteria. Say that the breeding process should result in better overall horse characteristics, you would then pick the string that has the higher number of higher values. If the criteria is a worse horse, then you pick the string that has the higher number of lower values. For a tie just randomly pick a string. For breeding purposes, all three option should be available, so randomly pick a criteria, slightly weighted toward a better horse and use that fitness criteria. Say 60% better horse 40% worse horse.
As you can see it is extremely simple and yet can produce better results in a much shorter period of time. There are a number of good books that explain this much better so just Google genetic algorithm if you are interested.
Can we all get behind my sister RomanceProductions here on Anook. Her youtube channel was attacked last night. It is 12 hours later and we are still picking up pieces. She is no longer doing minecraft videos, and neither am I. She has been doing this a year and it is a struggle for her. Please let her know she is doing OK.
Okay folks. There have been a few developments in regards to YouTube in general. There will no longer be any Minecraft related content to go up on my channel. In it's place....I honestly don't know. Codex is closing down as of Dec 1 and the other Minecraft server I was recording on....the whole thing just got griefed. Meaning destroyed. So for now you will be seeing Hearthstone, and maybe that will be it. That is all cool though because we rise up to become something even better and more awesome than before. Thank you all for sticking with me through this.
Ever watched UHC, want to see a different way to play it? Why not go watch my video :D
I play some UHC but with a twist! Find out what it is here.
Today we build a garden shed to store things in!
I have never played minecraft because it is not on the wiiu but I try to know every thing about it
Hello, just though I'd introduce myself here. My name is TainMarr and I recently created a new channel focused on relaxation. My flagship series is currently 9 episodes long with new ones coming out every other day. I used to run BorderlessGaming, some of you might be familiar with. This is the reboot of what I did there with more emphasis. So if you're looking for a unique kind of Minecraft Lets Play, give the linked playlist a go! Thanks :D And have a great day!
