Detection of Metal Makers

Hello together, within AAI I used to check the "metalMake" parameter of the UnitDefinition. At least with BA 10.24, this is not working anymore as the value is 0. I could not find any other hint whether a unit converts energy to metal. Does somebody know how this is handled? Currently, metal makers ...

Re: AAI under development again :)

yes, for sure! please don't get frightened, AAI was removed from the official spring repository some time ago because it was unmaintained, but that seems to be solved soon, so when you create the pull request, i'll try to readd it. Don't worry, as it was crashing as soon as the AI finished its firs...

Re: AI for tech annihilation.

I have never played Tech Annihilation - from the name I suspect it features a TA-like game style? If yes you could try the new version of AAI I will hopefully have ready in the next few weeks (or build it yourself from "my" fork)

Re: Dynamic water - hovers floating

Wow, this is a really cool feature. Any chance to see this in a hopefully not too far away next release of Spring engine?

Re: AAI under development again :)

Cool, that's great to hear that Spring44 is still being worked on. As a human player I really liked the unique game mechanics (though I was really bad...) However, for an AI designed to play TA-like games S44 is very hard. My guess would be that it is easier to write an S44 specific AI from scratch....

AAI under development again :)

Hello together, it has been quite a while since my last post/sign of life and I assume most of the people from 10 years ago are no longer active as well. Over 10 years ago, I wrote the AAI bot ("A" for the lack of creativity as my first name is Alexander and "three letter AI" names were quite popula...

Re: AI does not finish buildings

Cool, thx! The AI player is finishing buildings again ;)

It seems that Soviet AI Players build units/buildings but do not use them to capture flags/attack (US worked fine though) - is this a known issue?

Edit: Soviet worked on different map (MoroRiver)

Re: AI does not finish buildings

Indeed - Finishing my studies, PhD and first year of industry work took its toll...

Spring1944 is looking really nice! Is this problem easy to fix (e.g. by just editing a line in a LUA script)? The technical concept behind the S44 AI seems to be quite different to the "old" AIs from my days ;)

AI does not finish buildings

I just tried out a recent test version (dev-test 3573) and it seems that the AI players never finish the construction of any building because the builders are given new build orders. Is this a known bug? Did I do anything wrong?

Re: Any news?

Nice to hear that you are still working on S44. Based on my own AAI experience I can fully understand the problem of RL interfering with hobby projects...

Is there a possibility of a release within the next few weeks/months? If you already have an RC it seems your work has gotten pretty far.

Any news?

A few days ago I noticed a S44 game with some 1.52 beta version. Is 1.52 (or whatever the next version will be) still being developed? Is there any publicly available progress report?

Re: BA dynamics (gamelength, techlevel(s), costs)

BA is not made for games bigger than 5v5/6v6. There is no simpler way to put this. You can't balance an RTS game that plays well under 1v1 and 8v8 play and everything in between, it will break down at some point, and in BA's case it really breaks down past 5v5. 8V8 DSD is a combination of a porcy m...

Re: BA dynamics (gamelength, techlevel(s), costs)

To avoid confusion: I have only read the first two pages of this thread so far, so I am sorry if any of this has already been suggested/discussed. The reason I stopped playing BA ~1 year ago was mainly its IMHO flawed concept of exponential economic growth. Given a sufficient number of players in a ...

Re: Skirmish AI: E323AI 3.18.0

Ok, that means you create a threat-map based on the positions of enemy units (and probably their combat power/weapons range etc.) which is then used to navigate assault units around enemy defences?

How often do you update/recalculate the paths of single units?

Re: Skirmish AI: E323AI 3.18.0

Hi, I just ran a few tests with AAI vs E323AI and I'm really impressed how E323AI performs - very well done :) I was wondering if E323AI is cheating or not. As a spectator it looks like E323AI always knows the exact positions of enemy units and calculates a path to avoid contact. Is that correct or ...
