Problem Lvl 5
« on: March 11, 2009, 12:41:19 AM »
I have problem with Lvl 5, OK not only 5 I saw this on other levels also
when I conquer few asteroid and don't move around till I grow my army 500 and more seedligs
I noticed that AI has ability to fly from asteroid that I can't reach wich is normal but when I conquer that asteroid then I can't go to asteroid mentioned.

Is this problem or it must be like this?

I did not take screenshot, sorry.

The AI has a few rules that allow it to do things the player can't do. This is mostly to avoid programming more complicated AI that keeps track of more things. Again, as with most buggy systems in Dyson, this was written in maybe a few days to a week for the original competition and needs a rewrite.

Also the asteroids sending distance is buggy, as mentioned here.

I'm guessing this approach to AI is also leading to the ability for it to build up 10,000 strong 'armies' on a single planet (with additional enemy seeds forming 2-4 evey second)? Cos, while I love dyson as it is & think you've done an amazing job at creating it, it certainly hampers the gaming experience when you not only cant win due to the enormous 'armies' but then subsequently lose when the AI decides to send the entire legion on a  nice tour of your astroids :D.
