Superintelligence (BNW)

Add the element of artificial intelligence research to the game. Artificial intelligence can initially provide some benefits, and eventually can turn into superintelligence that brings mastery of science to its discoverer. However, if too much artificial intelligence research goes uncontrolled, rogue superintelligence can destroy humanity and bring an instant loss of the game.

Since it affects only the late game, we recommend starting the game in the modern era to get a quick look at the mod.

This mod requires the Brave New World DLC to play. For a version compatible with the basic game, see here:

Note: This mod includes modified versions of some basic game files, and therefore might have compatibility issues with other mods that do the same. If you try this mod together with other mods, especially more complicated ones, keep in mind there might be problems.

Sheesh buddy, it was just for fun, a little thing like "hey bro let's make a civ v mod" " yeah let's do it"
They don't need to put in AI, it's not their thing, and the game ai isn't horrible. Yeah it's bad, but it's not that bad. Also making a new ai for the game from scratch, plus the Cambridge people don't know everything about all the code, it would exceeding difficult.

They added a stupid tech who cares. If these Cambridge poeple are so smart they should easily be able to mod the BROKEN civ 5 ai. Put a real AI into the game in place of the rip off broken ai the game makers put in.

>when you're an activist in a known organization who used their time to make, of all things, a mod in civ
still a cool mod though

So you're telling me that I should just nuke everyone into dust as that's far safer than AI. Good thing I got Okuu. The bombing begins in three turns!

It's universial isn't it? that really doesn't make sense as a.i.'s wouldn't interact wtih others unless they were suposed to (you have a.i. research agreement), or it already went rouge(which doesn't mater since the gaem would've already ended).

i built deep blue, but movedal the great works out of that city, i only have 2 a.i. labs (neither have workers) and two a.i. safety labs, and 6 ai safety researchers, yet my rouge ai chance is stil going up by 13 per turn. I'm on quick speed btw.

I wish instead of buildings and tech, they made the game's AI better... But thank you for the content modders.

Is there anyway to disable the science victory this causes? I think it may be a bug that disabling science victory dosent really disable it with this mod.
