TA Normal AI's:

Some AI's may have player reviews, click here for a quick overview on submitting your own.

For alternate reviews, you might want to take a look at SHONNER's site. There are quite a few AI tests there. Note that it only runs metal map tests, and several of the AI's tested were *not* designed to run on metal maps, where as this is exactly what SHONNER was designed for. Take the tests with a pinch of salt.

If you know of an AI which should be here, but isn't, then please drop me a line. There is one exception. If an AI is designed exclusively for a MOD and is included in that MOD, or on the MODs page, then I don't bother hosting it here.

This is a fairly basic modification of the standard AI. It has full support for all difficulty levels. Its main feature is that it loves nukes and comes with one the AI can use. Slightly more troop orientated, with a slightly better resource system than Cavedog 3.1.

joshcomm1 It is used for any non-naval (water) land battle maps that have good resources. You'll be surprised as to its sophistication, and I used C_A_P's excellent AI Profiler 2.5a in creating it. I created it specifically for my new battle map "Arena Annihilare." You will need to build one step ahead of this AI to survive, in Skirmish mode with computer AI's against you, then you'll understand why it is called "advanced." joshcomm1

joshcomm1 This is strictly an air attack AI. It will concentrate and sustain itself on energy. It will develop a good defensive posture around the base. It is aggressive, non cheating, and for Cavedog units. This was designed for C_A_P to use of his newest map, but he created his own in a blend. It will work well on metal, and land maps with good resources, mainly the medium or larger sized maps. Place in your C:\cavedog\totala\ai file. If you don't have, make one. joshcomm1

BSRAI was my first AI project. It's a non-cheating AI, simply a set of profiles weighted to make the AIs build decisions more intelligent. It was designed to build bases that are tough to crack, rather than to be a vicious rusher, so it's more of a late-game AI. BSRAI is somewhat tougher than the Cavedog AI, but should be no challenge for a skilled player.

This AI was tested with ten opponents. The Demon AI was enhanced to strongly defend its base and yet still attack its neighbours. The Demon AI works best with the original Cavedog units. It will start to build BIG BERTHAS and INTIMIDATORS in around 30 minutes, depending on the amount of resources available. I have even seen it lay land mines. At least one of the AIs will lay them around its base structures. I also made the AI diversify and defend its resources so it would be hard to defeat. Third Party units: The AI may use all the available 3rd party units depending on the random AI selections. If a lot of third party units are used, the start time to build the big guns will be longer.

TheSycthe I named it Explosives (Something it does a very nice job of).

It tries to take advantage of players not seeing everything in a game with Fog Of War by using a lot of long ranged units.

While it probably isn't the best AI ever, it's not bad.

My original goal was to have it play every OTA-based third party race, although I've been slacking a bit.

At the moment, it plays Rhyoss, Core, and Arm. Rumad (for some reason...) would not work on my machine and The Joined Tribe only works with Warp Gates.

I'll be working on a Mynn version soon enough.

If there are any third party OTA races I've missed, please let me know.

N/A

Yes Rhyoss
One of the more interesting AI's I've laid my hands on recently, the Explosives AI shows great potential. With rapid expansion, and simple yet effect level one choices, it can indeed look dangerous. It is let down by its poor resource model and desire to reach level two fast. Its Rhyoss support can best be described as basic. However, this is an excellent beginning, and with some work this AI could easily become one of the top non-cheating AI's.

The battle becomes even better with this, the latest version of the Freespace AI. While nothing is radically different, the general unit selection has been improved, by eliminating some units like the LLT which serve to waste early resources.

Anyway, if you want a good battle check out this collection of three AIs and look for future versions soon!

The writer of this AI has possibly the largest ego ever seen. If this AI is even half as good as he says it is on large maps, I will be very impressed indeed. It uses a lot of general tags, so may not be too bad with 3rd party units, and this also means it should work best without the TA Bugfix, which removes a lot of the tags it uses. It does normally take longer than even the Cavedog 3.1 AI to launch an attack though, definately one that likes to build up. The author says it's for big maps, and with its current attack time, he isn't kidding.

The AI will spend almost all its resources on Storm's and Slasher's or Rockos and Samson's. It will use Aircrafts too. Instead of using resources into a heavy defense, it uses it on offense. But when it gets to advanced it will build Berthas and a single Annihilator or two. Give the AI a little build time, and play with more than 1 ai at the time. I prefer Comet Catcher. For those who's tired of that building AI that never attacks.

McnTerra is a non-cheating AI which made its first appearance on a low resource mars map, Mechan Terra, at TAMEC. It sends streams of "strategic" units (Merls, Sumos, etc.) to keep a battle with it fairly intense. McnTerra CORE is the attacker of this AI and is quite aggressive, scouting for its opponents early. McnTerra ARM takes up the slack on heavy defense (HLTs, LLTs, Defenders, etc.) and usually attacks later than its CORE counter-part. Putting both of these AIs against you at once can prove to be quite a challenge, that few commander's have survived without resorting to PLAN B (Berthas, Nukes, or stockpiling a massive force).

Described as a "Strategic Rusher";, it has effectively two personalities, a rusher CORE and a building ARM, though the difference between the two is not exactly obvious.

The SHONNER AI is a non-cheating, rushing AI designed for non-water worlds with lots of metal. It builds mobile attack units quickly to attack other armies. The SHONNER AI is more offensive than defensive, so it will start defending its base later in the game after building up its army first. The AI assumes that it's playing in a 1000 metal, 1000 energy game. And when it's attacked heavily, it re-builds its base instead of trying to build Krogoths that it can't support.

A definite improvement over 1.4, SHONNER now makes a better job of handling its resources, throwing troops at you earlier, and protecting its base against early attacks. The unit choices still leave something to be desired though, and I feel it still isn't taking full advantage of its enviroment early on. This is definately one for the metal maps, there isn't a non-metal map around that could hold this baby.

This AI is from Grand Commander13's map of the same name. Just a single simple text file. It does have a unique property, it is designed for people who do not use the 3.1 patch. I can't see why it wouldn't work well with 3.1 myself though, as only four units were added after 3.0, while a host of pathfinding improvements were made. The map is avaliable from TAMEC. In general, the AI plays a very average game, nothing out of the ordinary about this one. Effectively, your typical map makers AI, a bit of everything.

This is the Ultimate AI, that's the name of the AI not my ego streak talking, though its name matches its ideal, to become the best non-cheating AI for Total Annihilation.

The goal is to write a unique profile for every Cavedog map. No longer will the AI rely on clumsy generic profiles, sometimes playing well, often playing poorly. These profiles know their terrain as well as any human, they were born to play their map.

The now defunct Ultimate AI. Its goal was to create an AI profile for every Cavedog map. A combination of the size of the goal being underestimated, profiles which were inferior to generic ones already available, and a lack of AI writers led to this project dying.
