What is up with their scouts?

Post by superbob1998 » Sun Sep 05, 2010 10:19 pm

I was playing a level in the UA game, when almost all the units that they made were scouts. It got very annoying and weird. :x

Hehe, noticed something similar the other day, playing "SMile", the mykos were focusing on the BlackSect while all the Ghorkov could muster was a crapload of Scouts all over the place... gave my Falcon a good run for it's money

I found a clue about why computers are making a scout endlessly and recon budget was irrelevant.

Sometimes, A.I players are making one kind of cheap unit and spam it everywhere. (I don't know why, but the units cost were always under than 200.)

It is frequently happen to Resistance as their host station is creating only fireflies or weasels one by one.

This isn't caused by budget calls, just a glitch.

would be awesome to manipulat the AI in a way that you can determine what enemy oyu take on first, rather than just the distance...
