For those of you that are unfamilliar with, or need a refresher on this modification, War on AI is made for people who generally play skirmishes against AI, and have a dislike for the lirttle things. In addition, some things that the AI handled poorly have been removed and some stuff has been changed that greatly improves AI performance. Realism has also been brought into the game with this mod, has been done by the adjusting of the attributes of units and weapons. Another sweet characteristic is that this mod features full daytime simulaton! One hour of gameplay equals a complete day-night cycle.
