AI damage, is it more?

Post by weyoun782 » Fri Dec 19, 2008 12:50 am

Does the AI in armada 1 do more damage? for instance, say if I had a sovereign class, and the computer had a sovereign class, and we sent them at each other, does the AI sovereign do more damage than usual?

That depends on the AI difficulty. That is, the AI does diffferent damage on easy, medium and hard settings. Take a look at the RTS_CFG.h file in the root directory for vairous modifiers based on the difficulty settings.
// DIFFICULTY SETTINGS
//

// AI special weapon fire rate
float EASY_SPECIAL_WEAPON_FIRE_MODIFIER = 2.0;
float DEFAULT_SPECIAL_WEAPON_FIRE_MODIFIER = 1.0;
float HARD_SPECIAL_WEAPON_FIRE_MODIFIER = 0.2;

// Build cost multiplier handicap for hard AI
float HARD_AI_COST_AND_SPEED_HANDICAP = 0.4;
float MEDIUM_AI_COST_AND_SPEED_HANDICAP = 0.8;

// Percent chance that AI fleets will cloak for long moves in Instant Action
// and Multiplayer AI (provided they can!)
float HARD_AI_CLOAK_PERCENT = 75;
float MEDIUM_AI_CLOAK_PERCENT = 50;
float EASY_AI_CLOAK_PERCENT = 25;


// At what range of a move command will AI cloak in Instant Action and MP?
float cfg_MIN_MOVE_DISTANCE_FOR_CLOAK = 1500.0;

// Damage coefficients for incoming damage for user in single player
float EASY_DAMAGE = 0.5;
float HARD_DAMAGE = 2.0;
EDIT: oops, cabal beat me too it.

ok thanks, I thought that the AI was doing double damage, I'm going to change that, my AI already builds alot of ships, they don't exactly need a handicap against me.
