The International - A Fully Automated Screeps Bot
The International is my bot for Screeps, thematically based after communist aesthetics. Owned rooms are called communes, offensive and defensive forces are called the Red Army, economic workers are known as the Proletariat, and the Revolutionaries establish new communes and rebuild destroyed ones.
This bot intended to provide experienced and new players a reference for when they get stuck, need inspiration, or want to laugh at some terrible code. Comments are used commonly, and code is structured so it can be easily understood, replicated, and expanded upon. Please follow similar guidelines if you make a pull request
Feel welcome to fork it and otherwise use it, however do not be overly aggressive on the Screeps world, especially to newer players. The bot is intended to be automated, but can perform manual actions via the console. It has an information panel showing progress, events, economy and military, and more.
If you have specific questions or want to discuss the bot, please join our discord server.
Progress and Design
Please read the about section before installing and using this bot.
First you'll want to download or fork the repository.
Next, if you don't have it already, install Node Package Manager so we can install other things:
Then, when in the project folder, you'll want to install the devDependencies like so:
npm install --only=dev
And that's it. Join our discord server if you need help.
Using rollup we will translate the code into a single js file, which will be used in environments set in the screeps.json file. This reduces cpu usage, and compiles the code so it can be run by Screeps while we develop using folders and typescript.
First, rename example.screeps.json to screeps.json and fill in the required information for each environment you want to run the bot in.
To then run the bot, use the command
npm run push-mmo replacing mmo with the environment you want to compile to. This wiil initially compile to the environment, as well as automatically compiling and pushing to the environment on code changes.

You can set up grafana, a graphing and stat recording tool, using the screepsplus supported tool hosted agent. With this, metrics recorded in Memory.stats can be viewed. There is a JSON model in this repository, grafanaModel.json which you can copy and paste to use to instantiate your graphs.
To run the bot on the performance server, run
npm run server and check out the server and
localhost:3000 in your browser.
If you'd like to use rollup to compile to a private server, you'll need to download and configure screepsmod-auth to push your code.
I'd also suggest using this less-laggy tool steamless-client to watch your private server run from the comfort of your browser.
I'm a huge fan of teamwork, and many useful features of this bot have been added by contributors.
If you want to join us in development for this bot, please join our discord server and share what you're working on, or hoping to add. We're happy to review issues, merge pull requests, and add collaborators!
