    Player-controlled troops aren't influenced by BAI and what you describe is a generic pathfinding problem. If you use the pathfinding file provided in download, it should get better. Nonetheless, there is no permanent fix for this problem, as it's simply the inner architecture of the game we can't access at all.

    Soulson, you should change your pathfinding file to ours, and you will see a much better improvement.

    hi,
    i have two questions:
    1 - What is your experience about use of stat_pri_attr "spear" "light_spear" "short_pike" "long_pike"? and what' your hints?
    2 - What is your experience about "requires" in recruit_pool? Someone told me that IA don't understand (or don't handle well) a building requirement on recruit_pool line. So, if i have:
    arsenal city requires factions { hre}
    {
    convert_to 3
    capability
    {
    recruit_pool "NE Basilisk" 1 0.4 3 0 requires smith
    ..

    and building smith is not present, IA continues to build next level of arsenal, ignoring the building of smith.
    If i set "requires smith" on "arsenal city" can i solve this problem (if this problem exist) ?

    Light spear gives defense penalty against infantry and defense bonus against cavalry, spear gives attack penalty against infantry and attack bonus against cavalry. Long pike makes the pikemen able to resist cavalry charges better from all sides and the effect seems to multiply as you increase the mass of the pikemen unit, short pike is just that - lower reach, similar properties, worse cavalry resistance (it's good enough from front, though, if you can handle the losses). If you search and ask you'll find many more details, but I suppose it's good enough for a summary.

    Personally I've used short pike to distinguish halberdiers from pikemen, turning them into versatile anti-armour troop rather than dedicated anti-cavalry troop with a fair bit of infantry support (no, I didn't use phalanx for them, they're better off classified as normal spearmen/heavy infantry depending on what you want to do, too).

    AI does a poor job at prioritising buildings, as it is looking first to it's personality and then checking for the effects provided by available buildings (like +law, pop. growth etc., troop recruitment, armour upgrade) and then semi-randomly decides what to build. It doesn't 'think', it just builds what it can build at any given moment. The more confusing building choices, the worse the AI is off.

    You might want to look up Taiji's work over DLV, he's pretty good at it with his no-compromise policy when it comes to AI design (he went as far as to streamline unit production solely to city walls and then tag possible settlement upgrades by historic events, to control which and how many units AI produces at any given moment ... there was a script to delete obsolete AI units as well, somewhere).

    I implemented XAI but now the player gets quests to contact the Aztecs even before they are discovered.
    Is this a XAI related issue?

    I do not believe it has to do with XAI. You may have used file though that you did not need.

    Hey in feutre will you guys be able to change some of the thing that right now people cant change. For instance the current settlement limit is 119 or something. I'm not sure but I read the mod overview and it seemed like you might have a solution to that. I may be mistaken as I got the impression what you do is change what files the game is looking for from the ones on the disk to the ones you create. So if that is the case I imagine it is theoreticaly possible for you to make a file that would change the limit on number of settlements to whatever you please. 100000000000000000000. just curous don't be annoyed if I am proposing the impossible.

    Hey all! I decided to install xcai for PI2 and was browsing thru the ai_db b/c i was thinking about setting one of the factions as the nomad one you guys put in, and noticed some things are diff for each 'religion' aside from the (+)(-) religious diff setting. A question i have(as staring at all the daunting code is meh) is do you guys have a description list for the which religion does what better? Ex: Islam land invades really well, and doesn't have a high defence priority, and 'nomad hates all and tear-asses around.'

    Basically im looking for one that makes use of naval invasions as best as possible. Sorry if its a noob question, i just avoid this file like the plague.

    The differences for the AI's are primarily to set up religious biases.
