I submitted the original Maximus to the AI Wars tournament.
You can see him if you download the AI Wars Gold Edition. This is Maximus 2.0A and I feel he is improved considerably.
Maximus does not cheat and is still optimized to play according to the specifications of the AI Wars Tournament.
I have tried him against many AI\'s but not all of them.
Maximus doesn\'t say much but you will get the message.
Download and extract the files to your AI directory. You should find only two Maximus20a files in the AI directory and a subfolder called Maximus2 that contains 16 files.
I haven\'t tested him much on water maps or with different victory conditions other than standard and conquest.
He is designed to work with the Conquerors Expansion Pack and has been tested with and without various patches.
What a pleasant surprise to see another AI scripter still involved with the game :)
Maximus2.0A is very well written indeed ! It is good to see that you have managed to solve so many of the perennial problems that an AI encounters - the mechanism of controlling unit's behaviour is exquisitely implemented.
Kudos on a great piece of scripting !

I am 42..soon to be 43 and love a good challenge, often unable to play online but could start and game and continue at a later time.
Well, I am very happy with the File. The following reasons are what keeps me coming back for more!
1) It attacks relentlessly once you make contact, not letting up!
2) It wont or perhaps cant quit like the normal AI until all structure/persons are destroyed!
I have noticed a VERY intriguing thing though, The Ai build an INCREDIBLE food storage. Perhaps they are a Big 'Ole Boy?..needing to consume massive amounts of turkey and deer flavored Pizza?.lol..but seriously, I checked out when I saved a game to quit until a later time that they were behind in Wood and Stone, but far ahead in Gold, and EXTREMELY..maybe 10X ahead in food. I am keeping that in mind, perhaps so they can use the units associated with food needs?
Keep up the great work!
I am playing in asscociation with my newest favorite map, Woodlands!
