    Default Naval Supremacy V2.0 UAI!

    UAI 2.0 Naval Supremacy
    Changes V2.0 Naval Supremacy
    -AI now recruits large powerful navies (see spoilers)
    -Countries armies rebalanced and updated for new DLC's, also reduced likely hood of cannon/cavalry spam
    -Still the only mod in which light infantry/skirmishers are recruited by the AI.
    -Improved Ottomans (allowed them to recruit Dhows and line infantry earlier)
    -Small formation tweaks - greater variety of Formations will be seen used by the AI
    -Build order improvements - Ai should maintain a better economy to finance larger navies.
    -Melee and Charge improvements - less run through by charging units and cavarly should be seen (unintentional effect of previous versions).
    -More AI naval invasions!
    -Better AI Occupations of trade Nodes

    AI Navy Compositions


    First rate in 1805
















    AI Trading





    AI Army Compositions















    AI Naval Invasions!

    Single line of improved standard

    French Column vs English Line

    French Ordre Mixte

    Quintrix Formation



    Complete Change Log Pre 2.0


    Change log V1.05

    I played a campaign recently and I noticed something. The Ai didn't recruit any light infantry I could see. So I decompiled the save and checked there. I then tried to fix the bug. No luck. I then tried vanilla,Darth mod and Radious Ai, none of them recruited light infantry or skirmishers. Anyway I found a solution to the bug so I'm releasing a new version of this, particularly as I honestly believe it is by far the best AI mod out there.

    -Fixed light infantry & skirmishers recruiting bug, ai will now recruit these units
    -Changed some priorities in group formations so the ai should use a greater diversity of formations
    -Tweaked the amount the ai spends on developing infrastructure.
    -Fixed bug where ai would recruit no mounted infantry (not dragoons, mounted cazadores, Russian mounted rifles etc)
    -Fixed Ottoman recruitment rosters a little, more line infantry regts
    -Britain will now recruit small numbers of congreve rockets late campaign as it's historicly accurate.
    -Fixed bug where some French guard infantry would not be recruited
    -Ai now puts more emphasis on economic technologies so develops its regions better.

    And some screenshots from my ten or so test campaigns.

    Installation

    3: Launch the game, if its been done correctly there should be a small indicator of installation when you click single player on the main menu.

    Notes for other modders

    Most tables have been updated particularly cdir.

    Cdir unit qualities
    -Light infantry placed in main infantry category and given the same priority as basic infantry (higher priority guard infantry, lights being harder to recruit and other things prevent this becoming spammy)
    -Skirmishers placed in artillery nd given the same priority as basic cannons (6,8,9,12lb)
    -Unit orders corrected generally
    -Ships given priorities as an experiment, not sure if it worked or not but did not observe a negative effect

    Cdir unit balances
    -Artillery ideal proportions increased

    Cdir unit balances group qualities
    -Missile cavalry increased

    Nice work
    Would sell itself better with a changelog though

    Same here. I'll gladly try it if you'd do it for GW as well.

    Very good A.I. Josst. The A.I. is forming and maintaining formations and is flanking, charging with cav at the rear of my formation, and there always is infntry in support of a cav charge. Infantry is running when under arty attack and walking when not to conserve energy. The arty is moving as quickly as possible into range and deploying, their cav is defending their flanks and arty. Their arty targets the closest threat like when my cav charges their arty it targets my cav while their cav intercepts my cav. Also they are holding their general behind their line and running him around to provide morale boosts when and where needed. In every battle I tested this A.I. with I took approx. 4-5 times more losses then in vanilla. I have yet to see any problems. I'll test the A.I. more though.

    I will help you test this. I don't have alot of time on my hands, but I will do what I can.

    As a fan of minor mods, having one to touch on the AI while still allowing me the control over other aspects of the game is something I have been looking for.

    Hi, I gave your ai mod a go on grasslands map. Austria Vs GBR, and Prussia Vs France: didn't play a campaign. I unlimbered by cannon and watched.
    Austria Vs GBR: Suicide cavalry was still a problem for me unfortunately. GBR sent a lone dragoon against me (I think because my cannon autotargeted it), and it ran into cannon and died. I noted that cavalry does tend to flank with a skirmisher accompanying on one side which was good. Can you tell me how you acheived this? Infantry shuffled a bit and then got into line formation in front of my position and put up a reasonable show but the units in front of the cannons were blown away, and caused routs on both their wings and gradual routing of the entire line. Cavalry on the flank charged my jagers but were entangled with the hussars and routed, leaving the general and cannons left on the field.

    Prussia Vs France was a similar story - only the suicide cavalry are a drag
