Sweet -- not trying to undermine what you've been doing. But a little more permanent and automated seems like a good thing. :)

Hello to the devs of AI War. I have only very briefly played this game. I bought the bundle, but I have been eyeballing it for quite some time. I noticed that I actually cannot change the number of AI players and that they were always hostile. I would like to be able to have AI allies as well, or even allow me to spectate as mutliple AI Empires fight it out. I am a huge NPC enthusiast. I have been before NPCs even existed as anything other than stationary persons you speak with. I actually do not know how to play thisgame. I'm waitinfg for the bundle to be updated with the steam Vengeance key. I want to know if this game has a decent modding community. Are there any Star Trek mods? I'd like to find a simple way to ease myself into the game without feeling too overwhelmed and preferably without having to spend large amounts of time reading manuals or player guides.

Coppermantis:
I won't spoil anything, but you do get some AI Allies if you play with the "Fallen Spire" minor faction on. There are smaller AI allies too, like the Human Resistance Fighters and friendly Neinzul enclaves. If you don't want to be overwhelmed, though, Fallen Spire is probably not the way to go for your first game though. 


As far as modding, there are a scarce few texture mods, but nothing big.

Kahuna:

--- Quote ---For eight hundred years, human civil war was waged.
Our orbits are still littered with wreckage, with the terrible casualties.

The civil war is now over. We have learned to cooperate.
But this did not come about in a way that anyone could foresee.
During the war, both sides used sophisticated AIs to run battles.
It was the AIs that first learned to cooperate.
Against us.

Some believe that this is a benevolent strategy on the part of the AIs;
People are never more united than when facing a common enemy.
But as this new war begins, the AIs' brutality makes us wonder:
If their goal were our unification, why would they push us so close to extinction?

We must act on what we see.
The AIs are stronger, faster, more advanced, and demonstrably ruthless.
One of us is going to destroy the other.
Soon.

As the story says. Humans waged war with each other and "During the war, both sides used sophisticated AIs to run battles." so that's why there's 2 AIs.. and since they "learned to cooperate. Against us." and pushed humans close to extinction.. they're both hostile.

About modding: "Does AI War support gameplay mods, or player-made maps?" http://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php/topic,10.0.html

There are some mods. Most of them are altplanetname.txt mods which add custom planet names.

Hm well AI War has a lot of content and stuff to learn and understand so getting into AI War can take a while. But if you like AI War you will learn. You must also want to learn (Of course this applies to everything not just AI War or games in general). This may include reading the Wiki or player guides. Although the Wiki is somewhat out dated and I'm not sure but seems like I'm the only one who has wrote any guides. You can check out my guide for beginner friendly game settings and how to defend yourself against the waves the AIs send.

saryehudah:
alright. Well I would still like to strongly recommend the ability to add more ai, friendly and enemy. I apologize as I am not familiar with the lore. I am a huge npc enthusiast as I've said before.
