Map Editor: AI (Computer) won't build Docks and boats

Post by SimonTheLaw » 27 Mar 2017, 02:16

Hello!

I usually play Skirmish (Regicide) and LAN Multiplayer with my firends. I made a few maps to play.

So the issue i've got is that the AI controlled players won't build docks and therefore won't attack my island which makes the gameplay very boring, since they can't do anything until they have planes.

I have made sure that I can build docks all around the coast line.

Other facts and thoughts for troubleshooting:
- The whole coast line was made with the "Coastal" Tool
- The map size is 400x400 (which could be a problem?)

I attached the map to this post. Hopefully someone can help.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Simon.
First of all, if you use Unofficial Patch 1.5 - don't use the LAN Multiplayer. Use the Multiplayer Lobby instead. I explained a little more about it here: https://ee2.eu/multiplayer/help/#lan There are stability and security problems with the LAN Multiplayer, that's why the Lobby is very recommended, especially because it supports local connections (so the ping with your friends would be exactly the same, if not better).

About your problem:
1. Click "Edit" -> "Mission Properties...".
2. Find "AI Map Type:", and change to: Small Islands, Large Islands or Continents.
3. Click "Accept", and save your map. Then reload the map to make sure that this option was applied.
I downloaded the map, and seems like it's created for the expansion pack: Empire Earth II: The Art of Supremacy. In this case, if you're using UP1.5 you can't set the Pangea as the "AI Map Type", because there is a fix for Pangea maps generation, which helps to generate large Pangea maps, but treats Pangea maps as "Plains", so AI won't build docks on it anyway.

Please let me know if you fix the issue or if you have further problems.

Have a nice day!

Worked flawlessly! Thanks for the fast response.
Is there a thread about optimizing the game when having many units?

I think, I've got the same problem, but when I change ,,AI map type" to small islands or continents it doesn't work. AI still don't build docks.
I hope you will answer me.

Hello.
Do you use the newest version of Unofficial Patch 1.5?
I remember this problem was recently fixed with update 156028: viewtopic.php?p=23907#p23907
- Fixed a game bug (present since ver. 1.0) which always resetted the "AI Map Type" settings to "Plains" when a scenario file (.scn) was loaded (by the Main Menu, Campaign Menu or Map Editor). It fixed a bug where AI players didn't build docks and ships in custom scenarios.

Thank you very much!
I have installed Unofiicial Patch 1.5; followed your tips (with change in ,,Mission properties") and AI builds docks and boats now!

P.S. The maps in Unofficial Patch 1.5 are great!

Have a nice day! :D
