Trading with 'enemy' AI players


Yesterday I traded some tech with an AI player, successfully, then I realized that this was the very same player I was in the middle of attacking.

This made me think that the automatic 80% chance of an AI player trading a tech with you was flawed as they would happily trade with a player who was attacking them.

If each AI kept a tally of the players taking stars from them they could use that tally to modify the chance of them trading. Maybe every star you have taken from them could reduce the chance by 10%.


You can trade with me, @eDave, as long as you stop attacking me and attack orange.


Yes, right at the moment I am building a system where the AI keeps track of how much it likes you. If you are attacking its stars it will not like you much. If you are attacking a mutual enemy it will like you a lot.
