    Hello everyone.
         It's been a while since I've been involved in anything like this. The last time I wrote a bot script was around the start of Burning Crusade for WoW. I'll give a little background. Computer science major with knowledge of C++/C#, Java, and Python. I currently don't use my degree for anything except personal hobbies. I've coded a few games with server/client side including use of database. I want to do something a little different than just cranking out garbage games or trying to think of new few ideas and create art etc. It gets exhausting.

       My initial thoughts were I would join a community such as this, probably find it was dead, create a few scripts just to appease my inner child, and then continue down the path I was on. After searching around a bit, I do see there are quite a few users here that post fairly regularly.

        At this point, I've realized I'll likely be here for longer than a few days just making a few garbage scripts, I want to make something more long lasting. I'll probably start simple with a few scripts that do basics, but try and perfect them. Flawless woodcut/bank mining/bank etc. and see where it goes from there.

        I hope you all are willing to welcome another newcomer that isn't just going to come and beg for crap and complain they got banned, I want to be a part of the community and help in any way I can. If anyone has whatever advice, please feel free to either respond here or send me a message.

       I've got the client installed currently, I checked out the tutorial enough to get a basic script running I can chop some trees. I'll probably spend a few days on my own just figuring out various ways to do things so I can plan out future projects to keep the classes neat and expandable. 

       

     

    Long story short. Hi, what's up? Call me Shadow.

    Welcome Shadow! Good luck with scripting and enjoy your stay!

    Thank you. I look forward to working with everyone. Fooling around for a few minutes I see there are quite a lot of methods built in, only took 30 minutes to build a working, banking woodcutting bot, at least for one small set of trees. I'm really excited to see what this client is capable of. Next step is probably figuring out a way to add a GUI and see if I can have it go to the trees the player wants to chop at a specific bank.

    I'm sure there are plenty of basic woodcut bots but I figure this is an easy way to learn.

    Thanks everyone. I got a little further in my learning over the last couple of days. My woodcutting bot can now do up to Yew trees. I did have 2 throw away accounts banned already, which was expected. I have been using a new VPN location every time I get banned.

    I need to work on making them more human like. I've added simple things such as switching tabs, randomly ignoring the screen for about a minute or 2 as if going AFK. There are some things I'm going to try to figure out today to see if I can make it even more human like. I don't want to expand its use until I can decrease ban rate. The 3 things I'm currently looking into are ways to check distance from player location to area, if close enough don't click the mini map to move. Second is I find if I'm outside of a bank and I click a banker, the player will run into a wall, example seer village trees. The in game pathfinding either sucks, or this is an anti ban measure, either way I'm going to look for a way to avoid it without the script clicking in the bank 3 times running around the outside, as that isn't very human like. Lastly I want to be able to add real breaks, like log out for 20-30 minutes and then come back online. No one in their right mind can sit on chop maples flawlessly for 8+ hours and not move. 

    Hopefully I'm on the right track with my thoughts. I'm sure there is much more I can add. Quite honestly I have not actually played this game in years so the challenge I'm facing is learning how to play, so I can tell the bot what to do. If anyone has any advice as always, I would love to hear it.
