What happens when you Restore an AI when the game started with AI?


Hello super noob to the game.

I made a game of 8 players with 2 AI.

I wrongly assumed that the the reinstate player would allow for new players to join the game so I did that option to both AI.

What is happening to the AI since there was no original player?


I am only aware of two varieties of AI. Players who QUIT become AI, and players who AFK become AI. Force starting a game with unfilled empires, I believe, creates the QUIT variety of AI.

Both types of AI behave the same except that an AFK AI in a private game can be recovered for that player who went AFK when the Administrator (Premium Creator) of the game goes into the Options menu and click “Restore Player”.
