Cain Posted June 26, 2004 Share Posted June 26, 2004 (edited) ....without unbalanceing to much the game .....well I've done some testing and I've found some interestoing stuff. the simplest way to be sure that the AI will build a DS fast is to set his costs to 1/1 ..yes ! put 2/2 and the AI will build it most of the times to late ...etc. Its quite strange.....anyway he can build it at a price of a SSD but you will never konw when....it depends how many shypiards he gets at the start....and how fast he can build more. his first priority is to cover important planets with fighters so until he finishes that he will not build any new big ships includeing a 1/1 DS....but if he gets enough fighters at the start of a game he can build a DS from day 5-6 A DS with 1/1 costs will be surley builded until the day 100.....so you save at the day 100 and mod the DS mainte/stats back to 500-600 ...enter the gtame again and load the save game . I had a DS at the 150/120 builed around day 600....it's quite easy to see since I use the spy AI (traitor) program. Also I had a strange event when I knew qwhen the AI will buil a DS ..so I loaded before moded the stats to 800/120 costes and the AI was still starting to build the DS at that date (around day 650).....that's quite starnge since the building time was around 1450 days ....Anyway I will go for the 1/1 cost/maint setting and at the day 100 put back the costs his DS will eat his maint again with 600 points not only 1 ...As I said if you put more than 1/1 the DS will by builded but later than 100 days ..... I had a DS at 2/2 and the AI was building first Carrak Cruisers not DSs ...he seems to know the class of a ship no matter the costs..... if you want a fast easy way go for the DS 1/1 stats remoded back 600/600 with RebEd at day 100 Edited June 26, 2004 by Cain - The Trivium Organization - Community Manager -- Petroglyph Fan Forums - CoAdmin & Human Resources Manager - Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
