Hi list,

I have added a Lua starter package to the Google AI Challenge - Ants (2011)*.
It doesn't aim to be optimized, but allow you to start quickly to make your AI in Lua.
(I just converted the JavaScript starter package to Lua.)

It can be downloaded here:

Enjoy ;)

*What is Google AI Challenge ?

"The Google AI Challenge is all about creating artificial intelligence, whether you are a beginning programmer or an expert. Using one of the easy-to-use starter kits, you will create a computer program (in any language) that controls a colony of ants which fight against other colonies for domination."

It is still in beta, but you already can play with ;)
