This is my first post on DevMaster.
I was hoping that someone might be able to recommend the best environment for creating / testing bots ? I'm predominantly interested in academic research.
I had Gamebots / JavaBot for Unreal Tournament recommended to me but the last activity around that project on sourceforge seems to be back in 2002.
There seem to be quite a lot FPS environments, is anyone aware of any other genres?
I've pretty decent experience with both Java and C++ so language choice is not a major problem.
Thanks for any help

Take a look at Robots, the AI wargame. The guts are written in C++ using FreeGLUT, and the AI's done in Lua.
RTS genre: ORTS and Globulation 2
