This AI is another mod of the standard AI. It's for those of you who like a more defensive style of play.
For the first 30 mins. of the game, you will not be attacked (unless you attack first). This gives you plenty of time to build up a large base and army. After 30 mins., the attacks will come, especially if you're playing on titan. The AI will continue to play aggressively for the next 30 minutes. If you survive that long, you will then be facing a less aggressive AI (identical at this point to my "Less Aggressive" AI mod).
The time periods may need some tweaking (too long, too short?), so I'd appreciate any suggestions (including different ways of making defensive play possible with AOM, short of editing unit and structure stats which apparently can't be done at this time). Also, if you have any problems getting it to work, let me know. You can e-mail me at email@example.com
Unzip the files into the folder called "AI" which is located in your AOM folder. They will NOT overwrite any of the standard AI files so don't worry about that. Next, you should run the game and choose to play a random map and then choose "customize opponent". For the computer player(s), click the scroll and it will pop out the computer player names and you should choose "Turtle Heaven".
Note: This AI is designed for moderate-titan settings, not the easy setting.
Additional Comments: I alway's wanted something like this. This is awesome. You get a lot of time to build your base with lots of backup, and then after some time its hell as large full armies start to collide with each other!
