Elemental has rally points.
Oh, you guys don’t get them. There’s no UI for it presently. But they’re there. Just like in Galactic Civilizations but much more sophisticated.
Did I mention you guys don’t get them right now?
One of the things I’ve been working on is getting the AI to use them in ways far beyond what I’ve done in GalCiv or other AI’s before. Using rally points intelligently (and without using a lot of CPU time) is a serious trick.
Now, in the screenshot above, the AI’s archer army is building up just outside of town even though those armies had to collect together from a very long way away.
While simple on the surface to do, there’s a lot of thought that has to go into making this work (otherwise, the player could just figure out where the rally points are and station an army there ready to pick them off, there’s a lot of timing involve to make sure units aren’t vulnerable long).
