It's time... now I want to report about my project "Stars!AI". The ambition is to create a new stronger AI Player. In best case the AI could also be a replacement for former players or testing the performance of your own race files (...e.g. 2K test in 20 turns). At this time, my AI Player - Skynet 8 - is able to play the first 20 turns.

How Stars!AI works?

Stars!AI consist of 3 parts (->attachment):

1. Stars!AI Controller (...for file management)
2. Stars!AI Strategy (...the main AI program, produce an order text file)
3. Stars!AI Order (...for translating orders to mouse- or key macros)


Unfortunately I'm not able to read .m files or write .x files. The solution is the Tool "AutoIT" to operate the original STARS! with mouse clicks and keystrokes. The main strategy program reads planets and fleets from .map, .p and .f files. Reading the events is possible with the Tool "StarsPlayerTool" (thanx!). The result of the strategy program is an order text file. The order program only translates these simple orders to operate and control the original STARS! game.
