Watched a game Sub vs Barb, Spanish war on Arabia, Hard.
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1JEElP ... HMS9mDaPp2
This is what I noticed so far
- researched Loom right away ! (tested it three more times, always the same)
- first house was quite a few tiles away from the starting vills (tested it like 5 times and didn't happen again)
- scout did push the first deer for more than 3 min ! around the TC (was quite funny :rofl )
- build a tower to the south (back) that actually didn't protect that much and kept garrisoning archers into that tower :unsure:
- mined stone without a mining camp next to it, although the gold mining camp wasn't to far away (like ~7 tiles)
- build 2 forward TC and at min ~36 it had 3 or 4 farms not adjacent to the most forward TC and for the other TC the farms looked like they were build all towards the side of the base.
Maybe there is something like townsize that caused it. Don't know if that might have been random.

sidenote: interesting archer/CA build for Spanish <_< , infact I was like what the heck why is it not upgrading crossbow when having ~20 archers until I realized it is Spanish :lol:

Thanks Wattle!

Sounds like the deer luring issue is because it wasn't changing the focus player back to 0 (Gaia) to slaughter them -- I'll take a look.
I'll definitely improve Tower placement to prevent dumb cases like that :lol:
I think mining stone (just for towers) that far away is okay though I'll do some testing whether its good to put a mining camp on it or not.
Forward Town Centers are interesting, that must mean that the camp distances were very high... I'll take a look.

The Loom thing could be improved maybe. it will get loom if its TC is idle for too long -- ideally after the first house it shouldn't be idle so will need to look into that.

Edit: Turns out the loom bug was entirely something different -- I have a goal which has the total amount of time the AI should spend training villagers, because I didn't set a default (was still -1) it would always research loom. I've now set a default so it should not get loom instantly anymore :)

Hi Cheese,
I just tested two Sub teaming together in a 2v2 and they both failed in finding the enemies. They just found and targetted each other sub. Consequence was "funny"... They sent their scouts in their ally's town and followed villagers as if they were targets.

I give you the rec which might be pretty usefull to fix your issue ;)

Already fixed for the next version, it was caused by the same issue as deer hunters not killing deers (town center dodging) Enjoy the lols while they are there :lol:

Hi COT, thx for making a 1.5 AI.
I tested it some 3 times, and yeah, the deer hunting was the biggest issue and also failing to detect a boar and hunting it, even after it can see it. In addition, I felt that it rushes too much for deer hunting before exploring properly its land to find the two boars and enough sheep.
