There is no such thing as transcendence! There is no AI anywhere that has the tiniest bit of independence or unique will or creativity and I dare say there NEVER will be, NEVER!! That being said, any AI is just a collection of <if then> statements and this AI is amazing! The fact that it can manage as well as it does on such a complex game as this is a Fantastic! complement to the AI programmer. Please keep up the good work!
Thanks, Captain Obvious. However, this AI is not amazing. Some parts of it are actually pretty damn bad, particularly the scripted elements. Encouragement is good, but pretending that significant, addressable flaws don't exist doesn't help anyone.
