Thank you very much for the reply.
These files look very complicated and crytic to me, especially the MainScripts.
Is there any explanation available how they work and how you could modify them?

Seem to remember reading somewhere there's going to be a release of a map editor as well as modding documentation.

Many of the settings are easy to figure out with a longer look, though. I'm sort of confused how all the research files fit together.

I agree that they are pretty cryptic. I think we need an AI flowchart and then documentation of the implimentation before we can do anything other than trial and error on imroving the AI. An AI builder would be awesome as that is the most broken part of the game IMHO.

Note that the AI script for each race is compiled from a bunch of different source files. Each race has only two .csf files, so there isn't really a one to one mapping there (except maybe the "setup" script).
