Let TARS play the game for you. Good thing there are no black holes in Wayward.

TARS is a bot that will play Wayward by itself, doing tasks such as gathering resources, setting up a camp, hunting, getting food/water, and more! It's named after the robot from Interstellar.

By default, use "." to enable and disable TARS.

Source code and more information is available here: https://github.com/WaywardGame/tars

TARS is a practical application of AI planning. This means that when TARS wants to "Acquire a Copper Sword", it will gather every item & prerequisite in order to do so - it will build a kiln, furnace, acquire copper ore, smelt bars, etc.

Started it up with a bunch of food, which the bot threw in a chest, and it comes back (sometimes) and eats it. Problem is it doesn't care if some of it has since gone rotten, and just seemingly eats it in order. There's plenty of fresh food available and it's like: nah fam that one fish looked GREAT before, it's just.. a lot green now. My guess is that it still thinks of it as regular food because it knew it was at one point.

I mean it's a bot so "efficiency" isn't of the utmost importance but it should still probably prioritize not eating garbage if it can help it. Rotten meat doesn't sate much hunger and it both harms and I'm pretty sure it can poison you which the bot may have trouble recovering from.

Hey, can you make some actions repeatable? I want to set it off to collect maple seeds and take a 5 minute walk while it fills the inventory with them and whatnot

@Karlmax Elcabron Try "." or use the TARS icon in the button bar.

Doesn't work. I play 2.11.4 and nothing happens when I press T or shift+T

This would be cool if it were integrated into survivor NPC's that build and try to survive alongside you."

Yesss. This would be a total gamechanger, haha.

↓ would dramatically increase the system requirements xD"

Probably :'# It would def be optional.

But having intelligent NPCs capable of doing player-like activities in a crafting game like this would be a real innovation in the genre. And IMO the genre does need a bit of innovation.

Not to mention, it would be just plain awesome.

(There is KINGDOMS which does this, but it isn't really pleasant to play and the game is single-player only)

It did well until it acquired a full set of leather armor then it proceeded to make 12 stone anvils until I stopped it. Quitting and restarting the game did not change the behavior. As far as I know only 1 anvil is needed. It is also obsessed with traveling a great distance to acquire snow to make water at the forge rather than desalinating seawater.
