It appears to only be used in three files FactionDefs.xml, UPResolutions.xml, & the tech trees with military, growth, tech, diplomacy the only values in use and values ranging from -10 to +10.I can add new ones (test, xxyyzz for example) without errors.. but that doesn't say much. The AI is obviously using them to decide how to pick those two types of things... but are they used for anything else (i.e. ai algorithims?).
I'm thinking that going through the tech tree & growing the resolutions with more similar (but different) options could be a lot of fun (especially if I could add soome </Prerequ>'s to UPResolutions)... but without knowing anything abot how the eight values interact on each decision it's difficult to guess.
- If the answer to AI algorithims is yes, can we pleasepleaseplease get an xml file with them so we can mod in more than just the four?
- There is a +/-10 value in both the factiondefs & a places they are making choices (tech tree/UPresolutions), how do the two interact & can you provide any details on other stuff that might influence them?
- Is it possible to have a tech grant a +/- modification to an AI's base weights so researching/gaining that tech through other means would begin to shape an AI's future decisions? This one is pretty important since definately yor, I suspect thalans as well have certain lynchpin technologies that shift the game radically
