I have just realized, after a couple of years play now . . . . . .

I cannot remember the enemy ever using smoke.

Has anyone ever seen it happen?

Not me. I use this a lot of time but the AI don't.

I haven't ever seen it either. Maybe Sean decided to skip all the AI programming necessary to make it use smoke screens in a reasonable manner, I think it isn't too simple.

smoke use is very complicated, computer have to calculate wind distance, troop movement... The AI just don't see any utillity to use smoke. Or like Kangaroo said, Sean just program it like that.

Yes, I never got round to figuring out how the AI could use it intelligently!

In offence, it could simply call it on most intense source of fire, with a 10m shift towards the nearest friendly unit.
