1.87's AI is done, am free and still motivated to work. I am tempted to renew the Shockwave AI for my own entertainment.

Nothing fancy, just better optimization and bug fixing.
Who's interested?

I am.

It's not fun to launch the game and win in 10 seconds tongue.gif
But what would be more interesting would be a better Challenge AI, if you can have a look at it. There are some that are way too easy (Airforce, Tanks), and some that are too hard (Demo)

I'm interested too. I want to see how ShW's AI become better with improvements from ROTR (as long as it is not too difficult for casual players but can put up a good fight, at least).

BTW, I'm planning to release my own fan patch for ShW 1.2 which fixes several problems I've found and includes some improvements (mostly visual but with some gameplay affecting) carried from my now-obsolete fan patch. I'll release it soon after making sure everything is dealt with, and I may include the improved AI here.

Keep in mind this isn't anything official. Am just creating an Add-on for my own enjoyment primarly since am not a PvP player, and PvE bores me.

Nik, add me on skype, we can work on the add-on in collab.

I don't have a Skype ID, maybe we should talk through other means like PM or FB/Twitter...

Me too, I'm not a PvP player either...

It would be great if you can base it on the ROTR AI, because I am fairly sure that trying to fix the mess of the current AI would actually be more work.

I've just installed Discord and joined the SWR community there, so I can know more on what's happening.

Good idea. If what Mizo states are to be believed, the 1.87 AI will be easier for casual players than 1.86. That should work for ShW too.

And yes, Challenge AI could really benefit from a couple of quick tweaks as well, if that's possible and you fancy it - never modded AI so I'm not sure how it works. Tank especially (totally broken, stalls almost completely after about 10-15 minutes). Laser and Demo to a lesser degree (just need toning down a bit more on the lower difficulty levels).
