Ok, after some discussion about AI writing and tactics a few of us have decided to set a challenge to learn abit and to have a laugh.
The challenge is to create an AI buildlist for one race of unmodified Star trek Armada 2 (that would mean the races 5 AI files and nothing else.) Then we would create a map that the human player can keep out of harms way on and set the AI against each other until 1 AI team has emerged victorious then the human can surrender. Everyone who takes part in the contest would run a game with all of the AI files this contest generates and post the match end screen to show the results. From this we get to see who's AI reigns supreme
If you'd like to joinin then post beneath with your chosen race. I think a good end date is 15/07/05 but am open to suggestions on this.
To start this off I'll go first :p

This is an excellent idea Achilles, but I don't think I'll be joining the party.
Three Questions: Ok I've made all my Fed AI files (and they turned out really well) where should I post them? Is there only three of us doing this? Do I have to make a set for another race as well?
if you want to do another race that's fine. There appears to be only 3 of us ;) if you want to send them to me it's [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email]
I didn't make it!
Umm question: Are you going to randomly pick/create a map, and are you going to run the AI's multiple times?
I think we will edit a map like warzone with a asteriod field around the players base and turn off the fog so we can see which AI wins. but it doesn't really matter if no one else takes part So we are asking again for people to take part we need klingon, cardasssian and species8472 AI files.
