Does the AI keep getting better ?

    I upgraded from 3.16 to 3.19 after a year or so not playing the game, and I notice some changes : namely, I'm getting spanked on "easy" levels, or at least easier than I was playing. I used to play Prince, sometimes Monarch, and now I seem to have difficulties to keep my own on Noble.

    I've noticed AIs beelining Alphabet, others declaring war on me out of the blue in the early turns without reason, and they all seem to tech quite fast. Is it just me who suck, or did the AI have a boost since 3.16 ?

    I'm using the BAT mod 2.0.

    If you mean 3.17 to 3.19, the 3.19 patch does not affect the AI. BAT IIRC, contains the Better AI mod.

    Huh, I always though it did. I guess I can't recall correctly all the time.

    I'm quite sure I didn't have 3.17 when I upgraded, I was on 3.16 or 3.13 if there was no 3.16. Did 3.17 improve the AI ?

    3.17 to 3.19 was mainly bug fixes and small tweaks, I think. I don't know of any AI improvements that were made in that patch but it's possible the AI would perform slightly better based on a couple of AI bug fixes.
