Evochron Mercenary v2.408 Demo and Patch

More friendly AI ships added for support in single player war zone missions
StarWraith 3D Games today launched a new demo/patch for Evochron Mercenary, a first person 3D space combat, trader, and exploration simulation. The AI can now formulate much more complex attack and defend strategies, including both individual ship decisions and group decisions. For example, they can dynamically assign a few ships to attack a capital ship being escorted while assigning the rest to distract and defend. Ships assigned to certain roles can also be changed by the AI system as conditions change.
Friendly AI ships are now also generally more effective and responsive in their cooperative efforts with the player, particularly in war zones. They will look for opportunities and nearest hostile threats to take out as well as selectively assigning certain ships for capital ship attacks, matching tactics used by hostile ships against the player. Friendly AI will be more aggressive and actively engage to help out while the player has an active contract.
