How do I make thee AI build a huge base?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to make a super difficult AI to fight. I tried editing the rules.ini section like WarFactoryLimit = 100, or something like that with all the structures. But it doesn't build more than a certain number of structures. How would I make it build say, 10 refineries? I've been searching alot and haven't found any answer. Thanks for your help.

I guess it is this entry:

BaseSizeAdd=99           ; computer base size can be no larger than the largest human opponent, plus this quantity

 

Which game?

Oh, Tiberian Sun. I tried exactly that - adding 99. It didn't seem to work.

You know I build a series of maps I call CompStomp Survivor, so I tried to do the same thing to create more brutal opponents,. What I have done is use the Team Script Trigger editors to force more attack action, Buy if you want to force more build action you can use just the trigger for build building type and decide on the event you want. Then I did the unthinkable  I set the AI up with 3 MCV when the battle began the AI was building everything in 3's that would be 3 war fact, barracks, sentry guns, and that then translated to 3 war fact 3 tanks at a time, same thing with men of course you could add more by using the change to trigger but the AI doesn't seem to build units as quickly that way.

Check this map out CompStomp Survivor LIV  I have another that has the multiple MCV set up I'll get it here too.

You can try lowering the tech requirement to build MCV, and perhaps edit the AI ini and make AI triggers which contain MCV as part of its task force and have it deploy.

As described above tho, be careful as with editing rules ini for base, the AI can build with insane pace down to the point you might suddenly have enemy defense or power plant built around your base.

You can modify the ini code to increase how the AI builds, but I have a CompStomp Survivor map that I put 3 Conyards on the AI base and had them change house to the AI team, and they will build 3 of everything at 1 time, especially as far as base defenses, by modifying the ini I've seen it happen to but will only build as aggressive as enemy builds, I've seen 3 war factories at a time being built with 3 tanks roll out with the conyard build though.  Look through my maps I have 1 you can try it is CompStomp Survivor LIV in my maps list.

The question was about Tiberian Sun. But maybe YR ini files are very similar, i don't know.

      Could this happen because I had CNC client running while installing Tiberian Sun?
    • By Tønnao
      Hi folks!
      I was wondering whether or not it's possible to AI upscale the cutscenes in Tiberian Sun and put them into the game?
      I am absolutely sure that the cutscene files "MOVIES01.MIX" and "MOVIES02.MIX" contains additional data in order for the cutscenes to load correctly and at the right moments, but does anyone of you know how to perhaps modify the files and extract stricly the cutscenes, in order to upscale them and put them back.
      Of course it wouldn't be anywhere near as great as a proper remaster, but more so just to give the cutscenes a facelift.

      Hi, Hope you can help!
      I am still new to playing this game (used to play it years ago but wasn't the same as it is now), and when my friend joined, I didn't realise you could create a private game so I kicked the people who joined so it was just us two. I have been kicked out games before as soon as I joined so didn't realise kicking people was against the rules.
      Shadow777 was my first username and then someone made a comment amount the numbers 777 so I changed my username to visionary. I didn't realise at the time that this was also an offense. 
      Anyway I am now unable to play the game as it says I am banned. Please unban me! This is literally what I look forward to every night after work!

      Hello,
       
      Would you consider adding a link to Mole40k's Tiberian Sun Guide to the tips shown in each game room??
      When new players start, it would be really helpful to them.   >>  Lots of information vs. one tip.
      Mole40k getting me the link...
      Thank you!
