"New factions do not have AIs.

Yeah, I've heard a lot of people complain it's quite arduous and time-consuming to do such things. I did read on a forum however (A modder figured it out after tiresome work getting things to work with new factions) that to make it work it's basically copy/pasting code into the ai files of each faction and changing some things. I'll try to find the forum (It's been a while) where I saw it but yeah, it's simply a copy/paste ordeal and adding in your things respectively.

This one provides and example (It's towards the bottom below all the chatter).

Forums.revora.net

From what I gather from what was discussed is....

Once you have the building and button and the like, add it to the Civilianbuilding.ini file under CASTLE_UNPACK (where it tells the AI what to build and what the player can build) then go into the AI files and add a script under Build_Resource_Plot (IIRC followed by a number (where the maps are in worldbuilder)) and add the command there using copy/paste from the ai files of the gondor/rohan/isengard/whatever faction. This wasn't the forum post but it's a start (still trying to find, can't remember what I found it under). I'd look nder this mod and see how they did it (they were working on AI last I checked) but simply put it's putting your things into the ai commands of the ai files you created (waypoints, actions, etc.) from the factions already in the game for new ones anyways. Not sure for existing ones because of conflicts and getting them to work.

Hello
I do not know if this is a common bug, but while playing the campaign, the computer is spamming harad units, recruits them almost immediately, regardless of resources or population limit.

the mod is excellent ... it is also great in terms of gameplay and balance.. there is only one thing missing, I think, dwarves.. would it be rude to expect you to do something about it in the future?
