Do people find that these (and the carrier templates pinned to the top of the forum) swing AI behavior suddenly towards larger ships, or does the AI stay a little more constrained? Thinking about introducing this mod to an in-progress game I have going, currently in the early 30s, but I'm wondering if it will suddenly make the AI ships balloon in displacement.
Oftentimes, the ai will build up to its current dock size using one of the new templates. On occasion, they will build less than max dock size. The mod is safe to introduce mid campaign as far as I have tested. You’ll likely get more feedback on the discord channel than this forum. I see people using the mod and posting pics a lot.
Mod has been tested with [v1.17] on a Japan campaign from 1900 thru 1953. Mod works great. The only issue was a cosmetic one. A couple designs had their graphic bow and stern draw lines slightly off as the AI decided to use a smaller design and increased tonnage. Other than that, mod is great. The AI uses many new designs and they are very fun to fight.
