New version, the major changes are:

  • Now ships with Vanilla AI. Each AI can play as Queller or vanilla
  • Added subpersonalities allowing you to tailor how Queller plays to your liking

Please do not use the Queller version of the vanilla AI to report bugs to Uber. It's entirely possible that I have cocked things up

The plan was for Adaptive to be the default Uber AI, but it's currently the Tank personality. This is due to a bug in the game which is causing the AI to do stupid things with its armies, and this is much more obvious when it plays with bots than with tanks. Once this issue has been resolved I'll probably switch them over.

This is very much a first pass at the personalities, so expect to see further changes and refinements in the near future.

My other big goal is to really work on Queller's orbital game and see what I can do to improve it.

Version 2.1

  • Gold will build the Leveller
  • Uber will check there's some metal in storage in addition to looking at eco efficiency before assuming float and building more stuff
  • Silver correctly checks whether it can afford to have fabbers to assist on a project
  • Correctly exclude the orbital fabber from all checks it should be excluded from
  • Uber will send ARKYD offworld even if it's the only one if it doesn't need it on that planet
  • No longer builds an Astraeus for an evacuation it doesn't perform
  • Corrected errors in the advanced fabber ratios
  • Uber less reluctant to build advanced fabbers
  • Uber floats less energy on multiplanet systems
  • Gold through Uber have been updated for the Grenadier meta
  • Uber is better at building storage when it can't immediately counter an eco float
  • Uber prioritises Deep Space Radar after going orbital
  • Removed the building of Booms for now
  • Gold is more likely to build the Unit Cannon on a multiplanet system
  • Uber spaces its Jigs out more
  • Uber won't assign as many fabbers to grab metal while it's floating
  • Platinum more likely to tech up when it's out of expansion options
  • Gold less likely to tech up when it's out of expansion options

  • Checks added to stop the building of torpedo launchers in lakes with no enemy navy
  • Fixed an error leading Gold through Uber to put all their advanced defence in a tiny area
  • Uber rushes nukes based on the antinuke status of its target rather than other players
  • Uber requires a higher income to tech than previously
  • Uber won't build duplicate radars when looking to scout another world
  • Uber is smarter about when rushing orbital on a multi planet system with a single spawnable planet is appropriate
  • Uber will build Skitters to sight for mobile artillery
  • No longer waits until a planet can receive assitance to build troops because this was leading to feeble invasions
  • Uber is more aggressive with scouting if you might be on its planet but it can't find you
