I worked up a scenario that I've been using to play solo lately. You can find it on my blog:

Enjoy!

Good to see alternatives cropping up. I'd be interested to see your work.

For the foreseeable future, however, this works just fine for me.

Very enjoyable blog

I actually tried out the random movement thing, but did it by spinning the dial. Similar to you, if it was a Kor Manuever, I would only flip if it made sense. Also, I adjusted the manuever 1 to the left or right if something did not make sense for the turn.

I do like the ideas for assigning Actions

The action priorities are good advice for human players, too.

I played your example scenario and found it really easy to use.

Thanks, Dave. That's good to hear, especially coming from you.

The point is to make AI opponents reacting reasonably to a changing situation, instead of letting them make accidental maneuvers. I think I have found the solution, although it's far from being perfect of course.

Well, I hope you succeed. I haven't had anything too crazy crop up yet. This system lets me play games with minimal fuss or muss. Yeah, sometimes the AI pilots make nonsensical moves, but I just assume he was kicked in the head by a bantha when he was a child. And it so far teaches me to expect the unexpected. Not every opponent makes smart moves, but they can damn sure confuse the hell out of you with dumb ones.

Awesome! Really looking forward to it. Joshua, I look forward to trying yours too. I bought the game because I love star wars and thought I'd play with my kids but now i'm afraid they''ll break it lol. (7yr, 4, and 3)
