I posted a thread up on the Stratagy and Tips forum about the current AI and ways to improve it. Not very many responses so far, although one of them points out quite a few minor flaws with the current AI which have quite far-reaching overall effects. Personally, I think 1), 2), 6), and 8) should be fairly easy fixes, with 7) only being slightly tougher. Anybody want to have a go? I also disagree with 9) myself - I think the AI's should have their personalities, and it adds quite a bit to the game.
