Is this what people are using to run this solo or are they just running both sides when playing solo?
I just run both sides when playing solo. All you have to do is ask yourself what is most advantageous for each side when you take their turn. Sure you miss out on some of the surprises that arise from not knowing exactly what your opponent's have planned but that is a minor problem for me. I always root for the turtles, but I've had many games where the villain won. You don't need an AI for the villain, just be the AI. It works perfectly fine.
