I'm almost thinking they need to spawn ships to make up for any missing units.Yea, I've been considering that too, but it seems more than a bit wrong. I mean, that's what waves are, right?
I could have it pile the points into a spawning bunch of guardians or something to make it at least a bit varied without it feeling like the AI is just getting a ton of normal fleet ships for free beyond the normal reinforcement/wave model.
Or have it slap engines on a FortIII/Superfort and float that over to you, if it absolutely has to be "only releasing existing units"
AI Superfortress on my homeworld, thanks for the nightmares.
Anyways, is the "pull from other marks" logic still not getting enough? I thought a CPA would pull from every ship in the galaxy (including those in barracks) if it absolutely had to. Maybe if there aren't enough ships in the galaxy, only then would it spawn new ships to meet the number.
Or are you talking about the actual number of units to try to free relative to AIP?
