This environment is part of the magent environments. Please read that page first for general information.
A large-scale team battle. Agents are rewarded for their individual performance, and not for the performance of their neighbors, so coordination is difficult. Agents slowly regain HP over time, so it is best to kill an opposing agent quickly. Specifically, agents have 10 HP, are damaged 2 HP by each attack, and recover 0.1 HP every turn.
Like all MAgent environments, agents can either move or attack each turn. An attack against another agent on their own team will not be registered.
move_N means N separate actions, one to move to each of the N nearest squares on the grid.
[do_nothing, move_12, attack_8]
Reward is given as:
If multiple options apply, rewards are added.
The observation space is a 13x13 map with 41 channels, which are (in order):
|name||number of channels|
|obstacle/off the map||1|
battle_v2.env(map_size=45, minimap_mode=True, step_reward=-0.005, dead_penalty=-0.1, attack_penalty=-0.1, attack_opponent_reward=0.2, max_cycles=1000)
map_size: Sets dimensions of the (square) map. Increasing the size increases the number of agents. Minimum size is 12.
minimap_mode: Turns on global minimap observations. These observations include your and your opponents piece densities binned over the 2d grid of the observation space. Also includes your
agent_position, the absolute position on the map (rescaled from 0 to 1).
step_reward: reward after every step
dead_penalty: reward when killed
attack_penalty: reward when attacking anything
attack_opponent_reward: reward added for attacking an opponent
max_cycles: number of frames (a step for each agent) until game terminates
