The official version is renamed " Woody Woodpecker " and the old version is now called Termite.

New release btw :)

Now Woody plays Black Forest (or try to) :)

I could have made an AI which just rushs, like any AI would do, but it wouldn't be an AI specifically designed for BF. So i made Woody trying to wall like a human would do and Boom. Sometimes it can fail badly lol. but was fun to script...

i hope there is still room for improvement on the walling?
right now it is just more of an odd map feature...
i played 8 player on gigantic size, maybe i should have played 8p size?

Oh 11 yeah, i can imagine the desaster ! Well, i worked precisely on 2 players map in which there is generally one unique path. The walling works way better. Even in 4 players map, there are several paths which make Ww failing his walls most of the time :(
Sorry about it !

Just added some stuff to make Wwp playing in teamgames :
- The pocket won't wall
- Wwp trains trade carts
- Carto + caravan are researched


Just tested a game in 8 players map (4v4). The walls did work decently for 3 over the 4 wallers.

Extremely interesting AI.
First test was on forest prison, a forest nothing map with a players area of 7 tiles radius. Some optimisation is needed for this map, but still it seems going well enough to beat 7 of my AIs on this hard-for-ais map.

This AI worked well. I'm very impressed by its building placement as well as cutting capabilities. I tried playing this in DE with myself and 7 of these in a 4v4 team 7x7 forest nothing game, and it seemed some of them got a good start while others didn't, so it seems some randomness is involed. I'm sad that none of them built trade carts when the bases of the same team cut through to each other; does it play Forest Nothing in team mode?

Just added new rules to make the AI train trade carts when the path is created with another teamplayer.
And i improved the cut rules. The onagers look to have a better behaviour.

Thx for testing Woody Woodpecker. He needs some love and he really appreciates !
