What AIs handle 1700 well?

Post by speeder »

I noticed a lot of AIs break badly in 1700:

1. a couple of them somehow, build airports.

2. one AI attempted to cover the map with trolleybus-enabled roads, until it went bankrupt.

3. a couple attempted to build super long railways and went bankrupt before finishing.

4. I dunno what AI did it, but one AI annoyingly, nuked my rivers... I was using the river for passenger transport, and the AI just went and demolished the river and raised the riverbed level until there was a huge square of flat land near the city, it didn't went bankrupt immediately, so I dunno who did it. I almost went bankrupt fixing the river though...

So anyone know an AI that is well behaved in 1700? Also, won't spam signs.

AFAIK the default game doesn't provide any vehicles in 1700. You should list the GRFs you use.

I am using the usual 1700s newgrfs... like evsomething2, sailing ships, etc...

my issue is AIs that build airports before they are available, the button is grey to me, but AI still build them.

or AIs that build trolley-ways without checking if there are vehicles available for them.

Please post a savegame so I don't have to guess what "the usual 1700s newgrfs" actually means.

There are quite a lot of different AIs. This would be more helpful if you mentioned which ones you've tried. From what I remember my own AdmiralAI should not build infrastructure for vehicle types it cannot use, but I might be mistaken.

ShipAI is good with sail ships. NoNoCab works fine with egrvts.
