Yes, these are AI controlled through a Python script.

Still much work to do, though, but finally you can expect some results from me. :D

Just in case anyone's wondering, there's pretty much no way he could have faked that in the game. The only way to get another empire's ships to move was to attack their fleet and have it retreat to a nearby system. But in that shot, at least two colours of fleets are clearly seen moving away from another fleet of the same colour, from systems where there are no other empires' fleets that could have caused the retreat to occur by having a battle in the previous turn.

So, either he's playing a multiplayer game, edited a save file, or did some screenshot image manipulation...

... or there's really some Python progress.

I'm torn as to which is less plausible... :wink:

(Thanks / good job, Yoghurt)

You guys are hard to convince! ;)

OK, here's another one. Notice that I selected one of Empire2's Ship, which isn't controlled by me, as you cannot see the stats for the Scout.

I'm playing a little bit more with AI and maybe I can show you an attack on my base soon.
