AI question

Post by dfenz » Tue Sep 26, 2006 11:25 pm

I'm really addressing this question to Sean.
I don't think there's a tactful way to ask it, or to phrase the question in a completely non-biased way, so I'll just ask it straight.

Does the AI cheat?

No! It doesn't gain extra men or money or pick on human players.

So that means we'll ALL receive Christmas Cards this year?

Sorry, just couldn't resist that.

(AWESOME game, Sean.......looking forward to the next version!)

Sean,

Speaking of Christmas presents, I'm wondering if you have any plans to improve Slay's AI along the lines of the discussions we've had before. If not, would you consider merely "scrambling" the algorithm Slay uses to set up the starting positions for each island as you did when we went from v3.x to v4.x? I've played every challenge island in v4.x many times over, and it would be nice to start over with a new set of "islands".

Regards,
Mark

Please don't make the AI any harder! I suck enough as it is.
