    Description

    This mod works with both Planetary Annihilation and Planetary Annihilation Titans. It introduces a number of new personalities for the vanilla AI based on the Absurd difficulty level. These personalities will work with faction mods such as Legion. Installing the Queller AI will not interfere with this mod.

    Installation

    This mod can be installed via the in-game Community Mod manager.

    Personalities

    Aggressive
    • More willing to attack.
    • Less likely to retreat.
    Air
    • Focuses almost exclusively on air.
    Bot
    • Focuses almost exclusively on bots.
    Cautious
    • Requires better odds before attacking.
    • More likely to retreat.
    Fast Tech
    • Techs to T2 as quickly as possible.
    Galactic War
    • Uses the same settings as Absurd difficulty in Galactic War
    Land
    • Focuses almost exclusively on land units.
    Low Tech
    • Remains at T1 for longer.
    Naval
    • Focuses more heavily on naval.
    Orbital
    • Puts more emphasis on an orbital presence.
    Rush
    • Focuses on T1 and bots.
    • More likely to attack.
    • Less likely to retreat.
    Tank
    • Focuses almost exclusively on vehicles.
    Turtle

    FAQ

    Q. Can I use these personalities with lower difficulties?
    A. No. In game terms all the difficulty levels are in fact personalities. These personalities are modifications of the Absurd personality.

    Q. Can I use an AI mod like Queller?
    A. Yes, though these personalities will use the vanilla brain rather than Queller. The two mods will not interfere with one another.

    Q. Does this replace Queller?
    A. No, this is completely separate. It's simply a way for you to better tailor your experience with the vanilla AI. It also works with PA Classic, which Queller does not.

    Q. Will this work in multiplayer?
    A. Yes.

    Q. Does this affect Galactic War?
    A. No. Use the Galactic War AI Overhaul mod for that.

    Q. How can I provide feedback?
    A. Please use this thread.

    Incompatible mods

    I'm not aware of any.

    Quitch, what is the difference between this mod and Queller AI?

    Queller AI is a total AI replacement, adds AI personalities which utilise a new brain. This mod just adds personalities, but utilises the vanilla brain rather than its own.
