As said i understand the problem as the AI Coide to upgrade buildings is very rudimentary. So this is a problem especuially with tribes with lots of upgrades. So if iot works for you I am fine. However we went away from hardcoding stuff like this for good reason.

I'll experiment with starting conditions that don't make any specifications and try out what minimum amount of building material the AI needs in order not to get stuck (on all maps).

well, I would have kept with 5 minutes or less of evaluation time.
Furthermore the part with the decisioons based on times could and should probably be implemented with prohibited _till. Although this could be overriden in special occasions it normally prevents to early upgrades. As upgrade code still needs improvement this could ease the problems a bit. especially if the upgraded buildings are not producing anything different then the basic one (sorry hadn't the time to check your tribe in detail)

Hi, during translation i just saw you inclued a copy of the helpscripts for our in game encyclopedia in the Addon. did you change something there? if not it should work without this copy anyhow and it would reduce the translation effort.

Perhaps you might check whether thre are other redundant files in the addon which might be removed. This would reduce any effort may it be up-/downloadtimes, translation, maintenance and so on.

I reduced my soldiers to max 4 levels (0-3) each, so the gui and performance issues are gone.
