I'm experimenting with the AI and there are some things I noticed:

- For new base defenses it does not respect BuildLimit.
- For new units it does not respect prerequisites; it will build very powerful units without the prerequisite requirements.

If for the defenses, that's not much of an issue, for prerequisites there's a problem. Is there any way to fix this ?

- How does AI Trigger TechLevel work ?
Does this affect the above ?
Does it relate to the TechLevel of the used units ?

- How does the AI progresses through TechLevels ?

Thank you in advance for any feedback.

The AI ignores the BuildLimit & Prerequisites setting on the unit's rules code, they are only used to limit the player.

TechLevel= on TeamTypes is old code leftover from previous games & doesn't do anything. You need to instead use the TechLevel setting on the trigger to control when a team can be built.

The AI's current tech level is determined by what buildings they own, for example a barracks has TechLevel=2 so when built they can then use any AI triggers up to tech level 2, tech centers have TechLevel=8, so again once built the they can then use level 8 triggers etc.

You can also use a trigger that has the condition of "if" AI owns a tech center (or any specific building) then build powerful units etc, this will give you the most direct control over what the AI builds & when.

I assumed the TechLevel-Trigger thing but was not sure how it works; thanks for clearing it up. I will do some testing with conditions.
