When will the AI be implemented?
« on: January 01, 2013, 03:57:15 AM »
The game isn't challenging me and it loses its enjoyability if there is no chance that you are going to fail and there is no one to compete against and i really like this game so i was just wondering so i could but my mind at ease

The pessimistic answer: When a coder has the time and skill to do it.
The optimistic answer: Sometime this year (just wishing).

We can't be precise about these answers, since no one has started on it yet.
And since this is based totally on voluntary work, we can't promise anything.

The lack of any AI's has no effect on your ability to lose, they could never win anyway!  The only real effect they had was that they could get a bigger slice of the patients.

There could be many reasons why you are not finding the game challenging, they will all be down to things yet to be added to the game:
you can charge what you like and no one will complain
there are no epidemics, so you don't get blasted with a massive fine
or worse, you don't get closed down and have all your patients sent home
there are no rats, so less reason to be sick. This means less reason for patients to leave
patients don't leave without paying

As Grimdoc has said, these things will get added at some point.
