    Can you elaborate more on this? I always wanted to improve AI handling of carriers and missile carriers (do you mean submarines or destroyers/missile cruisers?), but I've never had enough time to look into it.

    This is just a stupid check that builds a carrier every 4 air units and a missile carrier every 4 ICBM. This is just the production part, not the way the AI handle them. If you have a better idea or logic, please share so I can code it.

    Yeah, I've just checked your changes and I've noticed. Well, it's not easy to find a proper strategy for that kind of units. I've thought about missile submarine for some time in the past, I'll post some suggestion as soon as I have more time.

    Temporary fix for the AI not being able to heal correctly

    Mostly a hack and not a solution, but I didn't want to ruin games while I come up with a proper fix. It works though, and I'm sure that is all players care about for now.

    • Fixed some typos in English strings. Thanks to the translators who reported this!
    • Removed some duplicated GP / City names
    • Reverted some pathfinding changes. Should fix the weird strategic AI choices.
    • Updated installer languages. Now available in ar, bg, ca, cz, el, pt_PT, pt_BR and ru. Thanks to all the respective translators :)

    Not sure whether this was referring to the AI only attacking with one unit per turn, but so far, it seems to me that that problem remains with this new revision (with continued game with re-calculated modifiers). They're also not bombing down city defenses.

    Drats.

    • Count the number of UNITAI_ATTACK_CITY units as part of the offensive army of the AI when choosing unit production

    Koshling & AIAndy no longer mod civ4 as far as I am aware, alberts2 tends to be pretty absent as well, and Thunderbrd is a decent C++ developer but no expert on the AI.

    I hate to say it, but I am probably the most active developer on the forums with AI knowledge at the present time.

    I miss the days when Jdog5000 and the rest of the BBAI team were around. They were leagues ahead of me.

    This is all very true.

    Nightinggale is pretty good too. But is more of a Colonization modder.

    OT: And with StrategyOnly's illness Dancing Hoskuld, T-brd, and Sparth are trying to hold C2C together. Progress there is at a crawl.

    • Will spawn on maps at start and can be discovered by Mines

    Events
    • Many events tweaked, especially enabling/obsoleting techs
    • Some English event text strings changed to reflect underlying event changes

    • Several quests count unit types and upgrades

    • Nuclear Protest triggers off 10+ total A-Bomb, Doomsday, or Biological Warfare units and disbands all such units (right now, bugged to only disband half)

    Fixed small error in Python code for Rubicon event. 958 will trigger Python errors on startup. I thought I caught that error but I guess I didn't change it in the right place.
