Subject description: About the AI...

Well, I've found some interest in modding TW again, and I begin to notice some stuff I dislike. One of the major things is GDI spamming Juggernauts instead of Mammoths, and Nod overusing Avatars.
A simple change in AIStates.xml is impossible, as it makes the game very likely to crash.
What I've heard from Cranius and other modders, is that they haven't touched AIStates.xml, but the AI still has changed (I haven't seen any major Juggernaut spam in TE in example, only Mammoth spam).
My question is: how the hell did you 'persuade' the AI to use different units? Or did you do change AIStates.xml?

IIRC the amount of units in TW gave the AI the choice to build those other units, but then it ended up with Titan spam and such...think there's something that the AI looks for in units that makes them build it.

Try making a duplicate Juggernaut, but nerf it and see if the AI builds which...?

You can set it so that the AI thinks the unit does less damage than it actually does so that they will not use those units that much. This works the other way as well.

I don't really remember the exact code for it, so reference the units that already have it, IIRC the Sonic Emitter and Beam Cannon has it.

Then I'll check those out.
EDIT: this code?
<SkirmishAIInformation
BaseBuildingLocation="SPREAD"
ConquerMetricsOverrideDPS="250"
ConquerMetricsOverrideDamageType="CANNON" />
(from Sonic Emitter)

Yea, that's the one I'm talking about. Hopefully it works as it's supposed to.

Just tested it: no Juggernauts from GDI. Now they spam Zone Troopers and Orca's #Tongue
Anyways, cheers for that JJ, now I can teach the AI which units/structures to use, and which not.

I have same problem with editing AI, makes game unstable Sad

However, i figure out that price, hitpoints, firepower and buildtime affect how much and how often AI use particular units (or if ever use them)

One interesting example.
It was strange for me that AI did not used much Titans in skirmish games, Titan is titan just by name for game engine its still predator and Ai should use predators. So i decreased price from 1400 to 1300 with positive result.
