Not a priority. It might happen eventually if I have a shitload of time and get into WK myself. Don't hold your breath.

not sure if this was triggered or not because i played 125 pop, but illu asked for stone almost all the game, and was committed to take the enemy's stone&gold , even when it still has in his base

I loaded two games with Illuminati playing as Khmer ... and in both cases Illuminati didn't make any villagers ... it was stuck and didn't do anything.

It seems Illumanti is not compatible with WK yet?

In that case ... the #1 thing I am most excited about is Illuminati becoming WK compatible so it can face Promi, Barbarian, Tribal Warrior, Maiar and other WK compatible AIs.

I LOVED Illuminati for AoC but I only play WK now so I am really excited about Illuminati becoming WK compatible.

But I also do not want Aleph to rush it because of course I want Illuminati to play WK as well as he does AoC!

I am supporting you Aleph!

Great to hear you're enjoying my work that much!

But yes, Illu doesn't play WK yet. In fact, I haven't been able to spend much time scripting at all in the past 2 years, I only managed to release a single new version in that time. Nevertheless, making it WK compatible is one of my highest goals at the moment, and I will work on it after I finish the major strategy overhaul I'm currently working on. It is a massive overhaul though, to the point of potentially revolutionising the entire AI metagame, so it might take some time of which I don't have nearly enough. The silver lining is that the actual scripting workload for making it WK compatible should be surprisingly managable, the bigger hurdle being that I myself need to get familiar with the new balance changes and civs first, since I haven't been an active player in a long time. I don't know when I'll have the time and motivation to do a lot of scripting again, so I really can't promise a timeframe.

As for the competitive AI scene transitioning to WK, it is certainly true that Illu is one of the few AIs that are holding that back. But I've also been surprised by how little the other scripters actually care about WK scripting and WK AI competition. I would've expected some people in our community to actively push for that jump to be made a long time ago, but no one ever did. And even despite Illu being held back by my own lack of scripting, I do feel like that transition will bring a fresh breeze into the AI metagame and might even inspire some more scripting activity in general, as well as include some newer scripters who have scripted for WK from the start, even if their AIs aren't very good yet. The one thing I can promise is that as soon as I make Illu WK compatible, there'll be no more hurdles for me as a tournament organiser to start running tournaments on WK.

Oh and btw, since you mentioned Khmer, I have a feeling that's going to be one of Illuminati's favourite WK civs despite being an underpowered civ in general. Hope that keeps your dreams alive!
