Shadow

Post by FireBall37 »

Here is Shadow, an AI designed for 1v1 land maps.

Here are some things to note: for now he plays fairly limited settings. I'm designing him to be REALLY good at 1v1's, so I'm focusing on improving his play level before expanding his scope. His basic strategy is flushing with skirms then adding in knights.

Civs: Vikings
Map type: Arabia-type maps
Players: 1v1
Other settings: the standard stuff
Basic style: flush

Feel free to test him/offer any advice on how to improve. I really appreciate all the help I've gotten on here and on Discord!
Have fun! :D

To anyone testing Shadow: there is a super annoying problem with his deer luring where his scout randomly just stops and sits idle.
I have no idea what could be the problem :head If anyone happens to know what's wrong pls let me know!

My gues would be that it's due to the bug where up-find-remote stops working for deers on occasion. To test if this is causing the bug just do a local-total check right after the up-find-remote command and see if it finds any deer to lure when the bug occurs :)

Thanks for the tip! I redid the luring (I had based it on the Horde) and now it works fine!

Very funny AI, but has a lot of bugs. He doesn't chase deer with a scout. Sometimes it just stops developing in the feudal era. In general, there is something to work on :) My AI it has never won on any 1x1 card :) I wish you good luck in developing your AI. I tested it against Promi, it's funny, because the tactics of some skirmishers and 4 spearmen, spearmen who do not improve in theory should not win ))) :)
