I'm one of the people which are interested in a client side AI. I have
developed a client which builds settlers, let these settlers build
cities and manage the cities to build more settlers. Even this small
problem is hard since find the right spot for a city isn't trivial.
I posted a patch for this Dec 2002
patch won't apply but you can look at the interface and see if you
