sethyboy Finally someone has uploaded an AIV =D

You did a pretty good job, and although he spends a lot to get up and running, he makes money fast. :P

I do have a few tips however:

Make the hovels a little earlier on, as there is a point when Richard has an empty campfire with many empty buildings.

Don't rely on moats for AI who don't dig them. Even though other AI can dig them, you can't always count on them

Place more archer spots in the towers, as well as some boiling oil. No point in having 2 smelters if they aren't used.

Anyways, nice job, and keep up the work. I'd love to download more AIV's =P

thanks for your comment

I wanted to place more archer spots but i could only have 10, so i had to place them carefully.

And about the engineers with oil..... i forgot aboout them.

I placed the moats because i wanted to find out if it worked even if originly there was no moat and i forgot to update it before i sumbited it.

Well first you should download my file (Please review and rate it) it may help u.
peter2008 Seems, now we can learn a lot more about our old friends, the AIs, and about castle building. Let's discuss.

This Richard's castle looks impressive, only at first sight.
There are 40+ workshops. Unfortunately such a boosting of weapons income does not affect the AI character. He just sells the weapons after reaching a certain level in the armoury and buys iron. At least, he will profit from this trading exchange and keep his gold stock high.

The castle itself is too big. On a common 8 player map, every outline hit the edges. One Richard could not place the engineers' guild.

Sorry to say, the fortifications are done badly. The very huge size significantly minimizes the overlapping effect of Richards poor defences. (Very interesting to find out the pre-set limitations.)
Some parts of the wall are very thick, others thin, especially on the front side + in front of stairs + next to a tower!
If this town is set on fire, there will be no chance for recovery. Balance 1.

Richard is good in attacking. His slow melee troops are strengthend by a +5 attack bonus. It lacks here.

For a next castle the "Crusader AIs - Castle design tables" may be of some help.

Funny text. The French word you're searching for is spelled "voilà" ;).


Lord Klorkhlop, you'll download site for the newly released Crusader Modding Tools under - and please visit the forums. Looking forward for your creations.
