I decided after a long lull that I'd try my hand at the ZH's SkirmishScripts.scb file to see if I could augment some of my ideas to optimize the AI's behaviour.

I decided to look at that 2.16mb monstrosity and damn is it slow working with it?!? Turn auto-verify on and even on my uber-fast machine it can take up to a minute to get anything to happen.

Anyway.. this is real wierd.. When I go into WorldBuilder, click EDIT PLAYERS, click ADD SKIRMISH PLAYERS, Click OK, go to EDIT/SCRIPTS, click IMPORT, select SkirmishScripts.scb and start playing with it. If I simply save it without making any changes as an .scb file, and use it as my main script file, launch ZH and try and play a Skirmish game, after 2-5 sec my buildings + all AI player buildings will auto-sell and I am defeated. Why? What gives?

Does this happen with anyone? Seems bizzare.

Further..

o How does one tell AI players to move around a cliff/mount/lake to get to any enemy when that enemy is literally on the other side of that cliff/mount/lake? Currently, AIs will, on average, clutter around the cliff/mount/lake directly on the opposite side of where the enemy is instead of going around. This can also happen to my dozer/workers when I ask them to build on the other side of the cliff/mount/lake. Map issue?

Thanks all!
