    Hmm if I follow CTs words and look @ what's GPG doing I think sorian is at the moment working on the AI for a browser RTS game. :D

    Realy looking forword to your AI mod then ;)
    Hope you ask Jon Mavor to get acces to the source of the engine to mod the AI directly.

    I asked in kickstarter comments to make this a stretch goal for the 2 mil mark before we knew what it was. I am in favour of having sorian do this AI. Me and my friend just had a match last weekend and got our butts kicked!

    Yes this is after the AI overhaul patch, which did make the AI much better then it was before.
    The supcom2 AI does has a couple annoying issues, like sending tanks after boats despite not being illu. It will simply end up hugging the water with all it's units.
    I don't know how long you got to work on the supcom2 AI, I did sort of check up on your blog back then I believe and I recall something along the lines of a few weeks or even one week work?

    I played FA after supcom2 as my pc at supcom1 launch was too weak.
    I'm not too good at FA so I can't judge this for the full 100% but it does feel that your AI mod in FA is much better then the supcom2 AI and does less stupid actions.

    Regarding the goal of this thread. I'd love to see what you could do with the PA AI if you would be hired and have a few months time to really crank out some wicked AI.
    I reckon the biggest problem with AI that does a lot of calculations is CPU power.

    Wow, I wouldn't have believed that this was possible and so fast too!

    CONGRATULATIONS to UBER and Sorian. ;)
    Well done.
    From now on, i think we don´t have to worry about any AI problems. ;)
    But i´m still wondering what his unnanounced project on GPG is.

    Competitive play should be a good training for skirmish ; at least I'll have a chance to win there.
