Trouble with AI Ship production (1.06d w/ patch 1)
« on: January 08, 2018, 05:34:05 AM »
Good day,

I'm a big Star Wars fan, and love the way Polaris Sector handles fleet production and combat. Naturally, I had to give your mod a shot.

Trouble I'm having is that the AI is only producing fighters. I haven't seen any cruisers, or corvettes. Even the Empire, who you'd think would push to build larger ships, has only been producing fighters. After months of in-game time, I'm wondering, is this a bug? I am playing on Easy difficulty at the moment.  Is that the problem?

Appreciate any feedback you can provide. And, hope this is the best place to post this kind of report.

I see it as a patience problem, first you have played few and second you are playing at easy. If you play easy, you can not wait nothing more than an easy game.

Right o. Just so we're on the same page, I probably have about 8 hrs on that campaign. Also, I suppose I wanted your reassurance that the AI do build bigger ships. :)

I'll try a new campaign on higher difficulty and report back.

Alrighty. After some testing, and then some digging around... still nothing but fighters, freighters, and ground units.

A couple questions:

What's the recommended installation procedure for Alliance 1.06d? Did I miss a step? I'm working on a fresh install of Polaris Sector with Lumens DLC.
 - Extracted Alliance 1.06d to game dir
 - copied Alliance "REMEMBER.cfg" to Documents/.../Polaris Sector
 - Extracted Alliance 1.06d Patch 1 to game dir, overwriting files.



I found this post by you on the Slitherine forums, in the modding help section...

In the Doctrine folder you can see many of the things about the AI. By example, if you want add a new type of space unit and you want the AI playing with it, you must edit the files in the Doctrine folder.

After checking, it looks like my downloads of Alliance 1.06d and the patch didn't include any Doctrines folder. So, I downloaded the initial 1.0b and noticed that it had a Doctrines folder. You think if I copied it into the mod directory it would solve my problem?

Any help/advice is welcome.

p.s. Even with this problem, I'm enjoying dominating the Galaxy with my Galactic Republic fleet. Just want you to know I appreciate your hard-work.

Your problem is only impatience. It is a long game, why do you want see the AI building big ships in the begining? do you want be destroyed at five months?

For the record, the timing is not the same in the mod as the original game.

What difficulty level do you recommend playing on? And about how many months/years could one expect before seeing corvettes and level 1 star ships flying around?

Normal level. What have you researched? Between the point where you told about to start a new game and now......probably you could not advance too much in the game, it is a long and slow game.

In my new game, not very far. Dual TRE, Compressed tanks (small red), missile pylons, Medium Turrets, a few of the theories, and some other early components.

I usually set my research focus to the sciences for a while (mathematics, physics, etc).
