This mod changes a lot of stuff, so I'm not going to go into detail on everything, but I'll hit the hilights.
The first thing you need to know about this mod is that it is designed to work with Stoffe's High Level Force Powers and the 2.1 update. Despite what the installer's info text says, you do not need the high level Force powers mod to run this AI mod, but you'll probably want to give it a download to get the full effect if you don't already have it.
So the basic premise of this mod is to improve the AI, as you might have guessed from the name. It does make a lot of changes, and some of them are very important changes. For instance characters will now stop using outdated skills, such as using flurry when they have improved flurry. The same is true for Force powers. This will, in effect, make the AI a little tougher to combat, since they're now fighting "smarter" than they were before. However your party will also be fighting smarter. Some special alterations have been made to party members, such as Hanharr and Bao Dur. Hanharr will occasionally use Wookiee rage, and Bao Dur will use his shield breaker ability against opponents using energy shields. Handy, no?
There are dozens of changes you'll find in this mod, and I urge you to read them all when you're installing the mod. However one thing that's sure is that these changes all improve the AI, make the AI more believable, and make the game more challenging and thus (for most people) more entertaining. No longer will the NPCs act silly or foolishly as they originally did on occasion. For those wishing a more complete, more accurate, more realistic game, this is certainly a must-have.
Note: Please leave the author feedback, especially if you download this mod and use it. It really helps encourage the author to make more mods in the future.
The file in this archive, Modified AI.exe, is a self-extracting archive compressed with the 7Zip file compression utility. 7Zip is similar to ZIP and RAR, but produced much smaller files. Run the self-extracting archive and unpack the Modified AI" folder inside to some location on your harddrive (NOT the game's override folder). Then run the "Install AI Tweak.exe" installer (found inside that folder) to install the Improved NPC/Creature Combat AI mod.
