AI DevelopmentSkirmish AI’s, are what the Computer Opponents in games are called. Developing a good Skirmish AI is a major undertaking, and requires quite a bit of know how. As the SY’s have more important things to do than develop an AI, they have left this job up to the community.
The community has risen to the challenge remarkably well, releasing quite a few AIs.
CodeNote that the full sourcecode for many AIs are available within the Spring SVN repository.
