Default How to convert old AI to Gold

1. Pick an existing Gold race which you want the new race to act like.

2. Open the Gold race's <race>_AI_Settings.txt

3. Highlight and copy the lines from

"Ships don't move through minefields := <true/false>"


"Maximum Anti-Planet Drone Target System Distance := <number>"

4. Open the new race's <race>_AI_Settings.txt

5. Paste the copied text after

"Personality Group := <number>"

6. Save the file.

7. Open the Gold race's <race>_AI_Fleets.txt

8. Highlight and copy the line

"Percentage of Fleets to use for defense := <number>"

9. Open the new race's <race>_AI_Fleets.txt

10. Paste the copied text after

"Fleets Default Strategy := <strategy>"

11. Save the file.

12. The new race is now Gold compatible. (Note that by "compatible", I mean the race won't produce all those error Messages; this patch will not teach the AI to build and use drones.)
Cap'n Q

"Good morning, Pooh Bear," said Eeyore gloomily. "If it is a good morning," he said. "Which I doubt," said he.
