I've finally posted an update to the mod. Version 1.19j features a lot of fixes and improvements. I apologize for the long delay in getting the update complete especially considering I introduced a couple of bugs in v1.19i that hurt the AI's overall performance.

While the update is save game compatible, I recommend starting new games because the nature of some of the AI fixes/improvements.

Many of the fixes/changes focus on the AI's infrastructure. There are also some key fixes to attack especially with unit groups.

There were also a bunch of changes relating to how AI anger is determined. It's been more customized per AI and you'll notice that some of the AI players will be more wary of incursion into their space by other players despite the presence of treaties etc.

There were some updates to vehicle design and weapons usage, but not too extensive with the tech tree changing version 1.20 next up on the schedule.

1.  Changed - Modified resource values/percentages for planets
2.  Changed - Modified starting planet values for finite resource games
3.  Changed - Adjusted the homeworld starting facilities for low tech starts
4.  Fixed   - AI had stopped adding ships/units to Base Space Yard queues

10. Changed - Improved AI fleet retrofit location selection

12. Fixed   - Sometimes AI players were too eager to return retrofit ships to duty before they were repaired
13. Fixed   - AI players were sometimes having difficulties with low resource starts
14. Changed - Made some adjustments to AI vehicle demand
15. Changed - AI with Ancient Race racial trait less likely to share maps
16. Changed - AI design improvements
17. Changed - AI will make more use of Long Range Scanners
18. Fixed   - AI was not using the Intelligence Compound colony type
19. Changed - AI will periodically update Colony Types based on actual facilities present
20. Fixed   - AI players were sometimes too conservative in their resource usage
21. Changed - Improvements to how AI decides intelligence defense spending
22. Fixed   - Sometimes AI players were not designing Troop Transports
23. Fixed   - AI ships/fleets/units were not attacking when they should have been
24. Changed - AI was too often trying to explore/survey systems that were too distant to be useful
25. Fixed   - AI players were not always getting rid of their disabled/immobilized ships
26. Fixed   - Sometimes AI Medical Ships were failing to cure plagues due to outdated Medical Bays
27. Fixed   - AI players were not upgrading their facilities when a colony was full
28. Fixed   - Occassionally AI players would pick an invalid target for their Warp Point Openers
29. Changed - Some improvements to AI orders for Storm/Planet/Star Destroyers
30. Fixed   - AI explorers were not always receiving the right survey orders
31. Changed - Improvements to how the AI handles demand for Colony Ships

39. Changed - AI Psychic players will not use Psychic weapons on drones/satellites
40. Fixed   - AI players would still add more than one Energy Refractor on a design
41. Fixed   - Some elements for AI political anger were being added incorrectly
42. Changed - Minor adjustments to AI treaty element selection
43. Changed - Adjusted AI vehicle demand values
44. Changed - Increased variation in AI usage of remotely deployed units
