If Dungeon core is impossible to connect (with the occupied territories) with the gateway - the AI does not build the rooms. AI becomes simply a fiction, a useless piece of code. I beg to correct it. The separate existence of areas (in particular, Dungeon core and gateway) - should not lull the AI into a stupor.
And I wrote already, I repeat. AI should be considered a rebellious - enemy unit. All units AI should be considered a rebellious - enemy unit, and attack it (if they close).
1 rebellious cultist killed dungeon core. AI did nothing to prevent it.
I found that if revenants attack the AI (for example, attacking the dungeon core) - AI does not use the rally point. AI does not consider revenants enemies. Their only attacking creatures was next, but the flag attack they not put.
In the screenshot you can see that revenants are attacking the dungeon core. But the AI not to put rally point. Fighting only imps (on their initiative).
Check out the video. Empire (Oberon, master) puts a flag (rally point) 5 cells away from the enemy (green) dungeon core. Empire smashes the enemy army. But not going to kill the enemy.
AI puts rally point 5 tiles from the enemy dungeon core, and does not want to win (they just need to move the rally point).
The AI very bad uses rally point. Often he puts them in a stupid place. Forgets to take them off.
AI does not attack imperial bombards (inside its own territory)
Watch the video. More than 70 minutes of game have passed. AI (2 AI, level "master") have within their territories a group of imperial bombardments. But do not destroy them using rally point (flag).
I noticed the following drawback of AI. He does not perceive, as a hindrance, imperial defenses (at least if the empire does not have a dungeon core) - if they are not on the way to the opponent.
I hope you do not need to chew that this is a defect of AI, and will be useful for the game, will it be corrected?
Idiotic control of creatures (AI throws them into the inaccessible dungeon core):
In map editor I put 5 imps and 1 ghost worker next to gateway. The AI used them to build several rooms. But then sent all the imps and ghost worker in a private dungeon core (which is closed using Brimstone).
Also, the AI sent some other creatures, such as beast master and ember demon.
Why? Instead, to strengthen and expand the territory, to serve the needs of creatures (drag gold from gold heaps, to bring pigs to the tavern, to strengthen of the walls ) the area of the dungeon is left without a job. And, the enraged creature killed dungeon core. 100% marasmus.
