AI Tweaks and changes

Post by Papahyooie on Thu Oct 15, 2015 12:31 pm

I've had a few people telling myself and the moderators that AI is too powerful. I made some tweaks to their skill levels. Spend a bit of time doing missions and fighting the roaming AI and let me know what you think here!

After playing for several hours last night, the AI is pretty absurd. Driving a van at 120 km/h and watching an NPC round a corner and kill my squadmate in under a second is a little rough. They're too accurate. Demons are also a little too fast in my opinion. They only seem to hang out in cities and the risk isn't worth the reward right now. Instead of going into the city, just hang out in a military base. We don't really have a reason to venture into any city right now.

Ghaji, thank you for the feedback. Your timing is very good as we're discussing this very thing in the 'server down' thread. Feel free to go weigh in on the topic there as well.

Is it the roaming AI that is still too hard? Or the missions? Their settings are independent.

As for demons... yea I'm working on it. Nothing I do is working, so I have tried to get hold of the developer. Haven't received any response yet.

He's talking about the roaming AI (I was the one shot out of the truck as soon as they were in line of sight).

Is there anyway to tell the AI apart by their appearance? That would make my fight or flight response a lot easier.

Thank you Ethanduh. I'll look into the roaming AI settings then.

Troy, do you mean to tell their level from their appearance? No.

Has anyone found an efficient way of dealing with demons? They are contently killing me and nothing short of 4 head shots with a 6.6 stops them. Running them over usually ends with my car exploding.

Yeah....they run faster than me. My best advice is if you see one running at you, try and die in an easily found spot.

I've been a bit all over so the place so I'll put my 'wish-list' together here in one place. I realize you could argue either way for many of these things so I'm totally fine with whatever direction is taken or decided on. Just my 2 cents Smile I also realize all of this takes time & will not be done right away. They're in no particular order...

Decrease roaming AI Difficulty
Remove AI Helicopters
Add AI Vehicle's (convoys)
Decrease Demon Difficulty
Increase time before body de-spawns (if not done already)
Add MAS Weapons (although like Ethan I think some of the launchers are a bit much)
Enable towing of vehicles by trucks & military vehicles
Increase amount of time before Missions vanish
Bring back parachutes (not a big one for me but is kind of fun.. And if someone can't figure out to slow down before landing I really find it tough to feel sorry for them) Smile
Can't find anything on MAS Vehicles so don't have an opinion but I do worry it would turn into World of Tanks if those are included. Also too many MODS could equal less server population

I think the difficultly of Mission AI is fine. If you choose to seek out a mission you better be ready for a fight & preferably be with a team. It's just the Roaming AI I would like to see nerfed. Feel free to rip me apart everyone Smile Like I said just my 2 cents!
