Aggressive Crisis Engine (ACE, ACEMOD) is a collaborative Stellaris mod with new crisis AI and a great amount of crisis improvements.

ACE is available on:
UPDATE: Beta now available to test.

UPDATE 2: Aggressive Crisis Engine AI can be applied to any noneconomic empire. Modders can follow AI framework documentation for modders which is in the works. While code will be cleaned up and event numeration will change for the release the principles of AI operation will remain the same.

UPDATE 3: ACEMOD has been released!

^ Presented in the video above: 5 year comparison of Aggressive Crisis Engine vs 2.7.2 Vanilla crisis AI (Unbidden). At the end of an 8 minute test Vanilla crisis had 5 starbases and ACEMOD AI had 18.
Vanilla AI is off for main crises and all fleet movements are mod scripted, this includes military fleets, constructors, army transports and swarm infestors.

- Full support for Contingency, Prethoryn Scourge, Unbidden, Aberrant and Vehement.
- New custom pathfinding accounting for wormholes and gateways. Begone loops.
- Aggressive not only in the name. Fleets are relentless and always seek targets.
- New technologies and quests to obtain them.
- Various fixes like changing crisis bombardment stance and making unarmed crisis ships flee when in danger.
ACEMOD is flexible and modular. Users will be able to switch individual components on and off at game start.
Modders will be able to use ACEMOD AI for their own custom country_types and exclude individual fleets from ACEMOD AI for their own events. Below is a sneak peek at some of the instructions for mod use:
Code:
# Note 1: In order to disable vanilla crisis AI this mod overwrites following keys in 00_country_types.txt:
# swarm
# extradimensional
# extradimensional_2
# extradimensional_3
# ai_empire
#
# Note 2: Vanilla crisis countries are piloted by default. See instructions on how to exclude countries, including vanilla crisis countries.
#
# Instructions:
#
# set_global_flag = acemod_activated                                            global                Activates ACEMOD fleet AI.

^ Overnight test run of ACEMOD AI crisis on Stellaris 2.7.2. Default settings but technology cost on x0.25. All empires were on repeatables. Crisis on x1 strength was squashed, this is a x5 Scourge.
This mod is at the beta stage and everything visible is subject to change.
End result.
End result save link (no mods required).
Pre-crisis trigger save (vanilla compatible).

Mod is unlisted on the Steam workshop as code changes daily and will be internally reshuffled (cleaned up) for full release (which will be published as a new workshop item).
I will try to keep beta save-compatible until release. You can follow beta link here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2254550964 .
That said, all three crises are in playable state.
i'd love to try this mod since the crisis being crap has bugged me for years, but as a general rule i don't play beta versions of mods, it's not worth the risk of getting a hundred hours into a campaign and then having a game breaking issue caused by broken code. i get enough of that from the base game.

Interesting mod. Is the mod compatible with the different crisis managers? Or does it make the crisis managers obsolete?
For example, I play with these crisis mods:

Crisis Manager - End-Game Edition [Unofficial] (2030057100)
Crisis Manager - Mid-Game Edition [Unofficial] (2033764043)
Crisis Manager - Sleeper Edition [Unofficial] (2036461392)
Crisis Manager - Total War Pack [Unofficial] (2038763403)

The Mid-game (L-gates/Great Khan) and Sleeper (Fallen Empire Awakening events/ War in Heaven) edition have another purpose and probably won't interfere.
The Total War Pack has an effect on the Horde and end-game crisis:
  1. Crisis factions will automatically gain control of/build starbases in systems upon defeating them.

The Total War Pack has an effect on the Horde and end-game crisis:
  1. Crisis factions will automatically gain control of/build starbases in systems upon defeating them.
Chances of them working with ACEMOD are high, at least that they do not break spectacularly. At this moment there are only a few overwrites: crisis country_types and Dimensional Anchors design (all three types).

Any mod which changes crisis country_types MUST BE above ACEMOD as to not overwrite it. Otherwise ACEMOD won't be able to disable vanilla crisis AI. Crisis Manager does overwrite some crisis country types and therefore MUST BE above ACEMOD.

I overwrote Dimensional Anchors to give them FTL inhibitors, better sensors and computer and make them show up on the galaxy map. Any mod which changes Anchor design should be above ACEMOD. Extra Ship Components 3.0 - Overwrites is one of those mods, place it above ACEMOD, unless you don't want these feature on the Anchors. Other crisis ships will still get ESC components.

Starbase ownership swap won't have any effect on the ACEMOD.

Nanites, Khan and FE/Awakened Empires are untouched.

Not sure if you can make this work with infinite stellaris crisis manager.

It scedules and paces the crisis and you can even have multiples of them in waves.
That's nothing which ACEMOD touches (this mod, right?). In fact, ACEMOD does not overwrite a single vanilla crisis event. Number of crisis fleets , when, and where they appear does not matter in the slightest to the ACEMOD.

As a side note, there are first reports of brave souls testing ACEMOD with Crisis Manager - End-Game Edition [Unofficial] and so far without issues.

If you got crash it would be likely unrelated to what is in the error.log.

That said:
Anchor component errors can be ignored.

Undefined target error for colonizer simply means it found no valid planet to infest/colonize.

I am aware of these specific context switch errors, they are not fatal , just fail the true/false check when looking for hostile fleet.

I cannot check files now but line 375 of swarm event file is probably about creating swarm or one of the swarm leaders. ACEMOD does not change vanilla crisis files and does not fire the event with that line, something else must have broke it. Are you trying to spawn swarm twice?

Also, something fired one of the leviathans events for no visible reason and it wasn't ACEMOD.

I didn't try and spawn the swarm twice; this was a natural spawn. That being said, I did turn on ACEMOD mid-save in that game (although before 2350 when the Crisis started rolling).

I had a look and this line is in an event which spawns Swarm (crisis.17). You have a mod which either changes the way Swarm spawns (modifies events) or changes namelist for Swarm for some reason. This is not necessary a bug, though.

That being said, I did turn on ACEMOD mid-save in that game (although before 2350 when the Crisis started rolling).
You should be able to add ACEMOD at any point during playthrough, even during crisis.

If you wanted it removed, however, you'd need to switch to crisis country, order all fleets on stop (clear all orders), run for one day and then save the game. Queued fleet commands from events which no longer exist can crash the game.

Still though, the main point of the mod definitely works:

Glad it worked! 30 years is ridiculously fast, faster than in our simulations, lol. Running a purge fix mod perhaps?

I was running a purge mod, but it's Ariphaos unofficial patch purge, which doesn't seem to affect the Crisis. Actually, the first planet the Scourge conquered took the longest to purge, because Greater than Ourselves kept resettling pops to fill the empty houses and jobs.
However, the galactic population outside my borders was quite low because I was playing despoilers and regularly raided everyone's planets down to two pops each.

I don't know why, but I laughed out loud when I read this.

Aggressive Crisis Engine AI can be applied to any noneconomic empire. Modders can follow AI framework documentation for modders which is in the works. While code will be cleaned up and event numeration will change for the release the principles of AI operation will remain the same.
