*I present to you the second release of this AI! Version 1.1. LOTS of fixes!
Don't be completely blown away, this AI plays maybe like 1000 ELO give or take a few hundred points, but it may be a challenge for the average player!
As explained in the description, this is a Random Map AI that is built for AOE2 Definitive Edition. It originally was built for AO2 HD some years ago, but has since been updated!
(Currently only supports DE).
All of the barebones information about this AI is in the readme file attached in the download, but for all of you who question this "new" AI, allow me to summarize:
- Can play 1vs1's or in team games well (utilizes pocket, or flank positions).
- Has an array of strategies for every age. It utilizes different strategies everytime, such as scouts or eagles in feudal age, to knights or crossbows in the castle age and beyond!
- Uses some of the new units in DE (like steppe lancers, battle elephants, and slingers).
- Can play all land maps, including nomad and MegaRandom maps very decently! Mixed water maps are supported too.
- Responds to some taunts like request for resources, attack now, stop attacking, strategy change etc...
- Uses some userpatch features (basic ones, I'm still learning!) This includes the AI retreating from TC fire, tower, or castle fire (sometimes... ugh haha).
- Can play most settings
If you're looking to spice up your AOE2 DE experience, then give this AI a try!
I want to truly thank ai.scripters, promi, and many other scripters out there for their AI work. Without them this AI would not have been possible!
Thank you to all the players that play tested this AI over the last 6 months or so with me. Many of your suggestions were even implemented into Forthwind! One suggestion was the resign chats.
It currently has 15 different resign chats now, all intended to be humorous of course.
