Unclaimed territories by game end?
I am testing the Sengoku map AI v AI and its turn 11, see below, the AI sometimes it will not take territories, see the two grey territories below a 6 & 2pu.
In one of my tests a 12pu territory was unclaimed, by game end.
Could the AI do with a revamped routine to explore/expand territories by sending a "fodder" unit to claim them?
@thedog Are they Gray territories controlled by a "player" or no one.
They are both owned by a pseudo player called "none". It is used to stop them from being picked by the random delegate.
In another game the 12pu territory was owned by no one.
Why, does it matter?
@thedog Make sure that "None" is at war with everyone.
Checked, "none" is at war with everyone.
Checked that the politics does not allow for "none" to make peace.
@thedog can you give them capitals ? I know the AI defends them, Idk if it goes after them
"Great Minds" think alike!
Thanks for the confirmation Im on the right track.
I have been testing exactly that, initial tests are no difference, but one of the new Capitals is that 12pu territory I have mentioned, so its too early to say if its worked.
@thedog You may want to submit this as an actual issue with AI log. It maybe that it always focusing on the big opposing armies and view the neutral spaces as low priority.
