Sorian AI



well I have a feeling that most of you have heard of this mod before. but what it dose it makes the AI better, smarter and faster (and by faster I mean it dose not use as much cpu power slowing down you pc) now note that because the ai is smarter it is also better and stronger so the game will be harder. but that is not the main feature of this mod. the main feature is support by mods if you use this ai with a mod that says it supports "Sorian AI" then that means that if you use his AI they will build the new units and building like they should (note this also makes the game harder :p ) another cool feature is that you can tell your AI allies where to attack and respond to map pings. they also support chat so if you say "target bob" and you are playing with a player named bob then your allie will start to attack him. you can read more about it in the read me. but come on lets start playing already.

The AIs

Sorian: Kind of like the Balanced AI in SC. Good for 20x20+ maps (and sometimes 10x10)

Sorian Rush: Just like it sounds, a rush AI. Good for small maps like 5x5 or 10x10.

Sorian Air: An AI that focuses a lot more on Air.

Sorian Water: An AI that focuses on Air and Water.

Sorian Turtle: An AI that forgoes early offensive units to build defenses and tech faster.

Sorian Adaptive: Picks one of the Sorian AIs based on the map and allows it to choose expansion bases based on several factors.

AI = Regular AI

AIx = Cheating AI
