Hello ROFers,

Those interested in improving the less-than-stellar AI in single-player mode in RoF (United Ed.) might want to take my little AI tweaks package for a spin (based on the Criquet/Gavagai AI tweaks of many years ago). No guarantees that you will experience stellar AI but, from what I've been able to tweak/test, it is an improvement over stock. Have tried to aim for something a bit closer to the fine AI of FE2 and WOFF. Tested in quick combat mode and in the PWCG ver. 16.3.x.

Link to post (no need to register at CombatAce to download the tweaks; the tweaks are best loaded via JSGME by the way):

EDIT (Apr. 17, 2023): the "Special Edition" AI mod. (ver. 1.4) has been released, in an updated "Consolidated Mods. New" Package.

Happy flying,
Von S smile2

Thanks for this Von S, downloading 1.1 now, will be the excuse I needed to pick up an unfinished campaign or career in RoF.

Just wanted to chime in and say that this is a significant improvement to the AI in the sim. Only done a few short battles, but I'm no longer seeing the slow, descending turns to the right, and they are far more aggressive in a fight. Great work!

I never understood the change in AI from Beta to Gold - in the Beta, the AI would extend, climb, and do all sorts of things besides get fixated into making a close circle fight.

Heck, they would friggin' run away if damaged (even slightly) and the odds were against them.

Hello.
I have only tested AI 1.2 version on quick missions. What I have noticed is that the AI ​​is more combative and has a lot more attack and defensive maneuvers, staying on top. Also, it seemed to me that when the plane is damaged, it descends and avoids combat.
The single player simulator has improved a lot. I say again here, in other forums I have been accused of promoting piracy, that 777 should facilitate the work of good moders, they really make the game better which means more customers - and more sales, of course- I do not understand this refusal to provide some codes that would make it possible to significantly improve ROF.
Greetings and thanks for the mod.
