Since installing the retrofit mod the AI seems to be non existent. It's nice for a change to not be ganged up by every country you border with (and then some), but this is also not what I wanted. The AI isn't even conquering the rebel states and losing fights.
I've done some reading and I've seen a lot of other people post similar results and someone claimed it had something to do with a new way the autoresolves work making the AI lose a lot of siegebattles. Thing is I also don't really see the AI make any moves to get those regions so I don't think it's just that.
Downloaded a few mods like the XAI/retrofit mod and lusteds AI mod, but it still doesn't even conquer the rebel regions... This is getting more frustrating then playing with the original unmodded game, and I am getting tired looking around here installing 10 different mods and having to start a new campaign every time to see if it works.
I would really appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction as to what to install to get the best enjoyment out of the original campaign. (mostly the aggresive diplomacy annoys me about vanilla)
