Random Ship Selection in Skirmish?
« on: 18 May 2009 02:40 PM »
What is it in Legacy that can be changed to allow the AI in skirmish to actually randomly select four ships instead of always using the same when battling against you?
I would like to fight different ships, even ones I configure, other than the same four the game chooses for AI use on its own. You know?
Such an ability is possible?
Thank you.

I reply as fast as I can but it could be hours/months/years unless improperly locked on me). Whatever term you use for resurrecting old threads, I call it "a proper follow up".

Christianity is a lifestyle, not a “religion", with Jesus Christ, Lord/Savior of all. Nothing has disproved any Biblical facts. In fact, science & archeology have done nothing but proved it all instead (trust me, I am a researcher of facts). Pizza party with the Man & I bring the colas!

At the moment, you cant manually select the AI enemy fleets. However, several mods have work-arounds for this via external methods.

As for more randomly selected fleets, Legacy is doing what its programmed to do. Contrary to belief (Legacy only picks the most expensive ships it can get its hands on), Legacy's ship select process for the AI is very clever.. The AI selects ships that provide the best payload opportunities within a price range. If you change your ships and AI enough and you can get more randomized fleets.
