Hi all, a novice coder here. I thought I’d experiment with simulation and solution space search in Code vs Zombies. On my first try, I was able to simulate around 500 solutions before timeout. This is obviously way too slow… But how fast would I need to be in order to have any chance of success with any kind of state search/metaheuristic solution? I mean very roughly… Are we talking 10 000 nodes or 500 000 nodes? Guess it depends a lot on whether I am doing a blind shotgun search or a GA, right? Any rules of thumb on the needed speed would be greatly appreciated.
A follow-up question: do I have any chance to simulate enough outcomes with Python 3? Have people succeeded in a state space search solution with Python in Code vs Zombies? Please note that I am at a point where my goal is obviously not to challenge the top 10 C++/Java coders here, but just to take first steps on the path of learning about simulation and state search.

(and sorry if there is already a similar topic, I was not able to find another one though…)
