BruteForce Custom AI 2.15

BruteForce can play Age of Empires II: HD Edition + The Forgotten + The African Kingdoms + Rise of the Rajas
BruteForce is a powerful and strong aggressive rushing and booming AI with many strategies at its disposal. It has the ability to adapt and maintain pressure with ease and with sustainable eco and market sell and trade functionality. it can also play many different kinds of maps including custom scenarios (excluding maps like Castle Blood) and of course, AI's in HD cannot yet play maps like migration and there is no support for "nothing maps" yet. It can attempt to play them but behaviour is unknown.

The AI does cheat on Hardest difficulty but Hard has a toggle to turn cheats on for those who find Hard too easy but not ready to take on Hardest. Taunt 200 at the start of the game on Hard difficulty to enable Hard cheats. (Note: the Hard 200 taunt only applies to the HD version of the game!)

- Features -

- Can play any civilization from AoK/AoC/AoF/AoAK/AoR!
- Can play Random Map/Turbo Random Map, Regicide, Death Match and King of the Hill
- Can play with human allies or other AI allies! Including the built in AI (Computer/Promisory) ResonanceBot and many others!
- Can play on almost any map!
- Can lure boar on any difficulty!
- Can disable resigning functionality by taunting "63" to the AI, this is recommended for FFA games or something.
- Can resign (but hopefully won't be seen or seen very often!) when it knows it cannot win, both in 1v1's and Team Games.
- Can play Team Games effectively (And can play with other AI's such as ResonanceBot, Logbot and Promisory (Computer))
- Human like difficulty which scales depending on player ability
- Can play 2v6 Mode on Hardest difficulty.
- Monster mode increases Hardest by a small amount (for those who find standard Hardest too easy.)
- Chaos Mode makes Hardest even more of a challenge! (More designed for 1v2 or 1v3 type situations)
- Lots more features and functions!

Game Settings:
- Game Type: Random Map/Turbo Random Map, Regicide, Death Match and King of the Hill
- Map type: Any map (besides migaration and nothing maps, it may work but preformance is unknown.) Prefers Land Maps. Some RMS' might not work correctly.
- Difficulty: Can play on any difficulty. (Optimized for Hard/Hardest)
- Resources: Prefers Low/Standard Resource start.
- Population: Any but optimized for 200.
- Starting Age: Dark Age/Standard. Post Imperial for Death Match
- Victory Conditions: Optimized for conquest but can play with standard victory on.
- Full Tech: Recommended to be turned off as BruteForce may expirence odd behaviour.
- There is a 6v2 Mode and 5v3 Mode but it must be on Hardest to be played.

can you togle off total military control of the units?

I like this mo:steamthumbsup:d, the AI can be very challenging. Although the strehngth of the AI seems kinda random at times. There are games when I get absolutely stomped and there are games when the AI doesnt really do much.
So I would like to see more consistency, I do use recommended settings. All in all, I experience no crashes and the strategies can be versatile and the AI does creat counters.

Thanks for your effort, I do enjoy playing with this AI!:steamthumbsup:

Thank you so much for a great AI, just a question, is there a way to edit your AI to forbid it from razing its own walls? I'm using your AI in a scenario, and the AI suddenly tears down its own walls, one piece at a time. AFAIK it's because it thinks it needs to make room for building, but it kinda messes with the balance of my scenario :p. Any help?

Am I doing something wrong with this mod? I tried going up against it on the hardest difficulty and it resigned after my first attack on their territory

the games Ai managed the economy so nice...and Resonance was always sending villagers to cutting wood on the back of the other 2 ai's camps/towns and got killed in the was unexpected that the AOE2 HD Ai to win over the other 2...I thought the fight will be between the BruteForce and ResonanceBot...LOL...funny...because both ai cheat and the onlu honest one was the one who won...karma...LOL

LOL...i just let a game play in "spectator" mode on hardest and 200pop...with 3 AIs...the HD AI(the game),the ResonanceBot 5-1C and this one the BruteForce...the game AI beat them both despite being weak at first...on a random map...and used the Huns(no house required) for all 3 fact this BruteForce Ai even collected 4 relics and had the lead in score the half of the game(the other was lead by ResonanceBot 5-1C)...I noticed a few things...this Ai was having constant messages like CPB of 99 was also making a lot of farms with no mill in between...don't know if is normal...

Does the AI migrate to other islands? My problem is that they run out of resources mid-game as I prefer to fight Naval battles.
