I hope you are doing well and getting through the summer. At the moment I’m creating new things in terms of AI from time to time. The focus is on attack priorities for teams.

It’s pretty simple to understand and apply, but it can become a relatively big effort. Short explanation:

What about?
The different buildings and units can be evaluated individually or grouped in lists. These attack priorities can then be applied to teams. These teams then prioritize their enemy targets according to their assigned attack priorities.

Why customize?
It can be done even better. For example, I hope drones are less likely to distract QuadCannons. Or U.S. transport aircraft less likely to distract during attacks. There is a lot of room for maneuver here. And it can easily be added to and applied to existing maps and scripts.

How do I apply the attack priorities to teams?

  • Create object lists
  • Create attack priorities with your object lists and single units (sometimes better)
  • Create application scripts and assign them to teams automatically or conditionally by an event.

Automatic assignment can be done by a “Behavior” or “Generic” script. This only needs to be set for the team in the team builder. But be careful with the subroutine scripts here. Generic scripts trigger the trigger every frame again, if no deactivation is done on success.

How do I proceed?
I started with a new object list. Clever grouping can save a few lines of code later. This I just renewed and added.

In the beginning there were some problems with applying the prios to the teams. It was because guard scripts suspend attack prios, and only hunt scripts can be affected accordingly.

Right now I am revising the values of my table again. Vertical column corresponds to attack priority for a team. The difficulty is to imagine how the team will act after it. If the team meets a mixed group of enemy units and has different values to the different units, then really all units are destroyed according to their type and its priority.

I thought I’d share this here with you guys. Maybe someone else is interested in it. Later I will share my files, if I can finish it. I want to create a kind of a retro-fit script package.

In case you wanna step in here… I can share my current Default Attack Priority Set for Generals:
