AI strange behavior
« on: February 28, 2009, 02:01:59 AM »
I notice in the user's levels strange and really interesting behavior of AI.

In the "take the flag like" level, near the mother asteroid was establish a colony for Dyson seed (120). So AI do what I am ever doing: using a weak asteroid as seed reserve to constitute an important "flotte". But the AI do not use this "flotte" to attack and conquer others asteroids.. quite strange!

In the "melee" level I see two things, firstly when 50 seed live an asteroids, the nearest enemy send immediately his own 16 seeds! Really good counter-offensive! But this is not enough the case in other levels...
The second things was an AI conquering the border of the bell and at the end having a 90 seeds army. It continues to invade other asteroids until it reach mine and ... suddenly stop! Nothing else happened from him until the end of the game! I was really affraid by him until it stopped. In fact I think it obtain by error this huge army.

Perhaps you need to increase the aggressivity when the army became strongers?

Total AI rewrite is on the list.

AI makes strange decisions sometimes. They have four main things that they do: form armies, and send scouts, and build trees, and generally expand. Within the actual AI they have decisions like move an army, make a new army, expand territory, build trees, etc. It's just random at the moment so there is a chance of an army not moving for several minutes.
