TIPS for better AI

Many of us have noticed predicatable reactions in enemy AI. This can be easily cured. Why? Most mission builders have enemy AI reactions that are predicatable [MAX reaction], they will lock on and follow the decoy oblivious to other planes and their escorting duties. This makes it easy for wingman to score and very hard for the decoy [sacrificial lamb] For more variety on missions here are some things that I have found to work very well.

We've seen the stacking up of enemy AI like cattle off to slaughter; try the alternate. You'll like it

Pre-loaded - pre loading aircraft in .M file TIP: You can reduce fuel in .M BUT it is unwise to do so for your wingmen because they are very unwise with fuel usage, they use afterburner to formation and attack. Quick HOW-TO: Edit the .M file and find the plane object [it is good practice to name your planes inside of FA mission builder first so you can find them later] Here are some cut & pastes you can use inside .M file with GT patch [tested with GT 36 maybe be incorrect with later GT releases] Mig 23 on CAP & lite ASM late 80's obj type MIG23.PT ... fuel 90 hardpoint 4 2 FAB500.JT hardpoint 7 2 AA8.JT F-4D on CAP 80's obj type F4.PT hardpoint 4 2 AIM9JNP.JT hardpoint 5 2 AIM9JNP.JT hardpoint 6 2 AIM9JNP.JT F-5 early on low CAP 80-90's obj .. hardpoint 4 2 AIM9JNP.JT hardpoint 5 2 AIM9JNP.JT hardpoint 6 2 AIM9JNP.JT F-5E CAP mid 70s obj type F5E.PT hardpoint 4 2 F150.GAS hardpoint 5 2 AIM9JNP.JT hardpoint 7 2 AIM9JNP.JT .
