Windborne: the awards for the AI that uses stellar manipulation best, for the AI that uses remote mining best, and for the AI that uses troops best, would have not winners!!!!!
I was developing my own AI scripts, and the things that you have proposed, can not be modified using scripts...
The AI is very poor with the Stellar Manipulations and using Troops. In fact, saw somebody any AI taking over an enemy planet or destroying a star with strong enemy planets? If the answer is yes, could be one case every 1000 games.
About remote Mining, the AI simply do not use it.
No confusion: still I love the game, and changing the scripts, I got a very interesting opponent. But still the AI need improvements. The problem is that SE4 is a very complex game, and the work to do an smart AI is really titanic.
To get a good challenge against the AI, you should:
- Do not use stellar manipulations.
- Do not lay mines (but at least now, the AI is using mine sweepers a bit better).
- Do not use plagues.
- Remove the Black Holes from the quadrant generation.
