@Sprouto said in AI, defense structures & build templates:
Sorian for vanilla is quite a bit different than the version in FAF. There have been a lot of hands on it, at various points over it's history in FAF, in attempts to 'improve' it and also to make it compatible with some of the gameplay changes in FAF (like Support factories). Some of those changes have impacted fundamental relationships between defense building versus other things.
Your mention of the template function being broken does however indicate that you have a deeper issue, that perhaps only your GAME.LOG can reveal.
Thx for your response Sprouto!
I looked into the game.log and indeed found an error:
warning: Error running '/lua/ui/game/gamemain.lua:OnSelectionChanged': ...orever\gamedata\lua.nx2\lua\ui\game\construction.lua(2676): bad argument #1 to `gsub' (string expected, got boolean)
[C]: in function `gsub'

...\faforever\gamedata\lua.nx2\lua\ui\game\gamemain.lua(545): in function <...\faforever\gamedata\lua.nx2\lua\ui\game\gamemain.lua:484>
I guess this happens when I try to either load or save the template.
One odd thing I experienced was, that my templates I created with the original game are still displayed (when using engineers), but when adding additional ones within FAF only my Commander can see them, not my engis.
Thats happening regardless if I execute it with or without any mods.
I´ve also tested with LOUD. And there it worked again. So I can only guess it has something todo with FAF itself.
One additional Note: Before I went to FAF I had Total Mayhem V136 and everything worked quite right.
@AI: Well I have tested with Sorian and UVESO, both they don´t seem to build any Defense structures when using FAF and Total Mayhem . When disabling all Mods, Sorian (builtin FAF right?) seems to build turrets again.
TLDR: On my installation (Steam)
.) Templates only work properly without FAF
.) AI (Uveso and Sorian) doesn´t build any defense structures when using FAF and Total Mayhem Mod.
.) When using the standalone Total Mayhem (V136) without FAF everything is working as well .
I have re-installed everything, still no change. Any further advice out there or do I just have bad luck?
