Has anyone succeded to make an ai that still can build other things after it has build a wonder or is it impossible?
If it is impossible, is it because of a bug or have ES made it that way?

I Would Like To Know.

i think the AI in scenario 3 of Genghis Khan does so... as should do the AI of montezuma 4...

Actually, the 4th scenario in Montezuma just used the "Place Foundation" trigger.

But the Genghis Khan one did build a wonder.

From Bingmann's AI site (http://aok.xhounds.com - always look there first), in the section 'AI Scripting Pitfalls':
Quote:
2. Never build a wonder.
While the wonder is being built and after it has been completed, the script
won't be allowed to build anything else. Of course the impact of not being
able to build anything is huge (no new farms, etc.) and probably assures
defeat for the AI player. Even if the wonder is destroyed, the script will still
not be able to build.

Yes, building a wonder is an all-or-nothing gamble. You will not be able to build anything else for the rest of the game. The main problem with this is rebuilding farms as they are used up and replacing buildings that are destroyed by the enemy. This bug has been in the game since the first AoK version. At least TC fixed it so that more than one builder will build a wonder. It used to be a real joke to have only one villager building a wonder while also never being able to build anything else.

The scenarios use the "place foundation" trigger to build multiple wonders. The AI does not build anything on its own after building a wonder.
