    Here's a customized version of eSTee3's excellent google sheet for generating AI values and associated .xml files. Thanks also go to Romeo Foxtrot for his updated liveries list. I think everything is here and working correctly.

    I've implemented a set of somewhat 'clunky' but seemingly effective additions that let you create AI grids in various skill groupings (amateur, semi pro and pro, as well as a divisional scheme suited to promotion / relegation league setups). The goal is to have a logical association between the different AI parameters for each driver. For example, aggressive drivers will tend to wear their tires more quickly and be less consistent. Race and quali speeds are correlated, as are start skills and race skills, but with enough random variation to make things interesting. Instructions for use are included in a tab at the bottom of the sheet. Make a copy of the sheet to be able to edit. Warning: my formulas very occasionally create a value outside the allowed range. In this case, either manually edit the parameter, or ignore it (that value will then default to the stock value set by Reiza for that livery / parameter).

    Enjoy!

    Any update on having custom A.I in multiplayer? There was mention of it a couple months ago but I haven't seen any other info since then.

    The Formula USA Gen3 export doesn't seem to work properly, the others are fine.

    Starting on AMS2 Beta V1.3.3.7, now you can optionally override AI driver values for specific tracks. See example below:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <custom_ai_drivers>
        <driver livery_name="Ministry Motorsport #51">
            <name>John Smith</name>
            <country>USA</country>
            <race_skill>0.75</race_skill>
            <qualifying_skill>0.823</qualifying_skill>
            <aggression>0.3</aggression>
            <defending>0.51</defending>
            <stamina>0.998</stamina>
            <consistency>0.2</consistency>
            <start_reactions>0.36</start_reactions>
            <wet_skill>0.25</wet_skill>
            <tyre_management>0.85</tyre_management>
            <blue_flag_conceding>0.53</blue_flag_conceding>
            <weather_tyre_changes>0.12</weather_tyre_changes>
        </driver>
        <driver livery_name="Ministry Motorsport #51" tracks="Azure_Circuit_2021,Long_Beach,Salvador_Street_Circuit">
            <race_skill>0.99</race_skill>
            <qualifying_skill>0.998</qualifying_skill>
            <consistency>1.0</consistency>
            <wet_skill>0.95</wet_skill>
            <blue_flag_conceding>0.75</blue_flag_conceding>
            <stamina>1.0</stamina>
        </driver>
        <driver livery_name="Ministry Motorsport #51" tracks="Jacarepagua_OVAL">
            <race_skill>0.5</race_skill>
            <tyre_management>0.4</tyre_management>
            <defending>0.0</defending>    
            <stamina>0.9</stamina>
            <aggression>0.0</aggression>
        </driver>
        <driver livery_name="ABS Racing #14">
            <name>William Shakespeare</name>
            <country>GBR</country>
            <race_skill>0.12</race_skill>
            <qualifying_skill>0.0</qualifying_skill>
            <consistency>1.0</consistency>
        </driver>
    </custom_ai_drivers>
    In the above example, you can see there are 3 driver entries for the same livery (Ministry Motorsport #51).

    The first entry doesn't contain a tracks list, so it means those are the base values of the driver of that livery on any tracks. For example, on any tracks, his race_skill will be 0.75.

    The second entry contains a tracks list with comma separated track names ("Azure_Circuit_2021,Long_Beach,Salvador_Street_Circuit"), so it means the driver of that livery has some specific personality values to those 3 tracks. So on Azure, Long Beach and Salvador, his race_skill will be 0.99 instead of 0.75, for example. The fields that arent present will still use the base value of that driver: for example, aggression isnt present, so it will use his base value for aggression on any tracks which is 0.3.

    The third entry contains a tracks list with only one track name ("Jacarepagua_OVAL"), so it means the driver of that livery has some specific personality values to this track. So on Jacarepagua_OVAL track, his race_skill will be 0.5 instead of 0.75, for example. The fields that arent present will still use the base value of that driver: for example, qualifying_skill isnt present, so it will use his base value for qualifying_skill on any tracks which is 0.823.

    You can add as many track overrides as you want, for as many drivers (liveries) as you want.

    This can already be tested in AMS2 Beta V1.3.3.7 by those who have access. When it gets released on main steam build (not beta), I will move this info to the first post of this thread.

    Great feature !!! CART driver B.Herta was fantastic in Laguna Seca, but weaker in Michigan oval!
    But old F1 point system 9-6-4-3-2-1 and CART's - can those be added to championship mode?

    It would be great to have a (external) program to configure the AI files.

    that excel sheet is great but still hard to understand/ work with for people who do not work with excel or even editing files

    Neat solution, many thanks for implementing that. Looking forward to testing it.

    Does this mean that consistency reverts to being only a "per lap" parameter?

    Have you tried to create a custom ai grid with the google sheet? It's pretty straight forward. Send me a pm if there's anything you don't understand and I'll try to help.

    Super V8 AI custom name. To race with AI custom GT3 machnines in multi class races. Almost all original Names. You can edit the right flag, skills, and and and .....
    You need the apropriate skin mod

    Yes, I already did that for some classes. Works fine!

    I just wanted to say that its still a lot more easier if there would be a program with a UI where you just use some sliders to change the values. But for sure „we need a program“ is easier to say than to create something.

    Please do not misunderstand. The sheet is great and helpful and also applicable for me.
    But I think there are still many users who are very helpless when it comes to customizing the custom AI.

    No, the consistency parameter continues to have a per weekend and per lap effects, as even on a specific track a driver can have good and bad weekends.

    But I agree its still also worth and realistic to have two separate consistency parameters, one per weekend and other per lap

    I think that might come later, perhaps as part of a 'Career' mode. Anyhow, glad you're able to use the sheet for now

    Thanks for this, will be a lot of work but a lot of fun tinkering around with.

    Quick question, shouldn't this be somehow be noted in the official changelog as well? Just so more people see the custom AI is still being improved on and more people try it?

    Indeed, we forgot to mention it in the patchnotes, we added it to the changelog now, thanks.

    And please, if there is something we can do to fix the refueling by the AI, please let us know as well :rolleyes:

    I am getting crazy because every time I race the AI always the same drivers are doing some nuts strategies, pitting one thousand times.

    This is my Custom AI file for CART 1995 for game version 1.3.4.0.
    As there are only 23 cars within the pack right now, all wearing fantasy liveries, I did not care much about the engines/bodyworks drivers had in real life (sorry).
    Caution: This file might not work anymore when there is a further update to the game.
    Feel free to adjust it to your liking.

    Hi guys,

    I tried everything but I'm not able to create a championship with these 20 AI I've created.
    Every time I create a SuperV8 championship it seems to randomly choose between some of my created AI and some concurrent from the game although I select 20 AI (same number as the ones in the file).

    BTW I never suceed to use Harry or Estee Excel sheet so I had to create this one manually :/
    In Harry one I was not able to use the "Create XML Here" tab, is there any macro to launch ? I'm not able to write SuperV8.xml in cell A2/A3, the file does not allow me (and it's not in the dropdown list as well) to and there is nothing in the green cells when I copy them.

    Do you know why I'm not able to have my 20 custom AI in my championship ?

    Thanks guys !
