Re: Attempting to improve the AI for Proportions 3.05

I don't think I'll add Satellite Layer to default design names after all. Players can add it if they want, but it's not in the unmodded game, and the default list is pretty basic, which I think is...

Re: Attempting to improve the AI for Proportions 3.05

The AI files were I think ok for Proportions 2.x, but then weren't changed much for 3.x, and were changed in some ways that weren't tested much or at all, so your testing is great to have, thanks!

Re: Attempting to improve the AI for Proportions 3.05

Interesting AI test results. Looks like the AI can use both colonizers and starliners, but isn't very coordinated about it in the early game, as you reported. Starliners moving speed one sounds like...

Re: Attempting to improve the AI for Proportions 3.05

Range 20 on a starliner is fairly limited, but not useless (also considering the cost and that IIRC you may have no other way to build a ship that can haul a population unit at the point that you can...

Re: Attempting to improve the AI for Proportions 3.05

Thanks for the great input, Arralen!

One thing is it shows me how unclear some things are to players when I'm not around to explain.

What is the zip filename, origin or whatever of your version...

Re: Attempting to improve the AI for Proportions 3.05

Thanks Ironmanbc. Is the AI colonizing ok? That's hilarious about your experience looking into modding the AI!

Thanks Arralen.

Re: Attempting to improve the AI for Proportions 3.05

Sound advice!

Which AI empires have you been playing Proportions 3.x against? Have you modded any of the AI files?

Re: Attempting to improve the AI for Proportions 3.05

Ok, so it fell off the list again. Back on it now, and I'm taking a fresh look at it, starting with fighter rebalance. I wonder though if anyone is going to play it multi-player, or if it is worth...

Re: Attempting to improve the AI for Proportions 3.05

Dominions 3 is awesome!

I on the other hand, have not done what I said I'd do and post a version.

I did say I would at least post what I have, and I did make an effort, but the version I had...

Re: Attempting to improve the AI for Proportions 3

I don't mind the topic drift, particularly as I don't currently have much to say on-topic.

I've played at least as much Dominions as Space Empires by now, which is saying something......

Re: Attempting to improve the AI for Proportions 3

Hey, you actually got me to think about and do a little work on the mod.

Here are some notes on what I've done SO FAR with fighters in 3.0.7 (aka 3.1.0):

Version 3.0 attempted to alter fighter...

Re: Attempting to improve the AI for Proportions 3

I guess I missed the threads on the windowed SE4 tool. What are you using to screen-scrape and manipulate the UI?

Re: Attempting to improve the AI for Proportions 3

No it's not. I completed the mega project that had been monopolizing my time, and found all kinds of other stuff I wanted to do. I think I'm about ready to go get 3.07 ready for release, though.
