[Bug?] Overly generous AI trading


#1

I was playing a solo skirmish (game 6687773570367488), and on turn 4 a bunch of AI gave me a lot of resources completely unprompted. It was very generous of them, but probably not very wise.


#2

It is unusual that they all gave you the resources. They won’t do it again though unless you reciprocate.


#3

Are there formulas we can see for the reciprocation of trading resources with AIs?


#4

This is the issue I had when players have missed a turn, AI takes over and give tons of resources away.

Not ideal!


#5

Geez, who are all these people getting overly generous AI trading? I’m lucky to get 1 here or there from AI!


#6

The AI won’t take over for the first turn that a player goes AFK, so hopefully this will help. I’ve also turned down how much they will give out.

In terms of a formula, the AI just expects you to reciprocate. When it gives you a resource, its trust in you goes down until you send something back. If you attack the AI and/or capture its settlements or ships, its trust in you will go down. The AI also distrusts the pirate in the lead (player or AI)!

Those are pretty cool parameters. I like the process. Don’t know if I’d reciprocate to an AI, but knowing the parameters, maybe I’ll be more likely to in the future.
