Snake AIV Pack

Author File Description
TrainerRyu Installation instructions:

1) Make a folder named "Snake AI Backup" inside the aiv folder of the game, and place the old 8 snakeX.aiv files into the new folder.

2) Unpack the new snake.aiv files into the C:\Program Files\Firefly Studios\Stronghold Crusader\aiv folder.

Play and Enjoy!

To get back to the original AI, just delete the "snakeX.aiv" files from the aiv folder, then replace them with the files with the same name from inside the "Snake AI Backup" folder

-Instructions above were taken from/written by artofmath (I was lazy okay...)


Before you go an comment (if there even is anyone to comment) on how these castles don't have that "snake" design you wanted or they aren't strong enough you can read a bit about them :)


The Snake is an AI that I've always enjoyed and his original castles with sections of wall and moat have a certain disorganized charm to them.
That being said I wanted to make some castles which a crusader lord such as the Snake might actually make.
I still wanted the castles to do his AI personality some justice so I used perimeter turrets for the towers and no siege equipment.
Remember: he's meant to be a medium difficulty lord who takes less time to build a less fortified castle and attack earlier on.

The first two castles are modified from Felix Günther's AI pack (credit where credit is due):

First Castle

One thing I did really want to take advantage of from the Snake (as you'll notice as a prime feature in these) is to make use of his slingers. Normally they just get picked off by every other ranged unit if they're used defensively (due to their short range) so they're hidden behind tall crenelations to help take down any melee troops.

The third castle is an original.

As is the fourth.

I'll be making some more castles to give some additional variety for myself if for no one else so you can expect those to be added here.
