Automated Host Question
Hello there, I'm quite new to Triple A and I'm wondering if there is a way to make use of ai factions in an Atomated Game with a friend. (we don't wanna control half the factions each)
@hamzeh-hammad Currently, there isn't. To use AI in a MP game, one of you need to host instead of using a bot.
Dang, is there a possibility of it becoming a thing? As the task of getting the ability to host is quite horrific in Linux. And there just isn't enough players to fill up a game to have a different feel (2-3 max tbh)
@hamzeh-hammad Its unlikely in the near term as the problem is that the AI takes lots of memory/CPU and we host multiple bots on the same server. We'd have to either have certain bots that are beefier/isolated to support AI or have all the servers like that.
There are definitely a decent number of 3+ player MP games but depends what day/time you tend to login.
I like to multi on weekends and games that can be completed within a marathon day. Or if we know each other, we schedule to continue them if they are really worth it.
Your welcome to pop into lobby on weekends and join us. I hope to get one goin tomorrow early afternoon est.
I understand, just wish it would be doable
And thanks @General_Zod
I'd be delighted to join some Multi games in the near future (I seem to enjoy lotr, ww2 and some others)
How long would a game usually take btw (a full player one I mean)
Depends on the map and whos playing. But a 4 player of suitable games can be completed in 8hrs if no big delays. However they can go much longer on occasion.
