Re: math variables lenght From:

There is no set length limit to the storage size of a variable in A.I. Wars (other than your PC's memory), but there is a computational limit to a 'long integer' in math calculations. It may be possible using more than one variable.

Most Cybug programmers don't attempt mapping the arena since the time it takes to calculate and use this data leaves the Cybug open to attack before it can make meaningful use out of the data. In some cases they do check a few points on the map with the GPS Scan to detect which common map may be in use and then run preprogrammed paths to get to their favorite defensive position. On the other hand, if the Cybug you are writing is for a specific challenge like solving a maze, then I can see why you're interested.

Good luck!
