Wouldnt it be great if you can build you own army of robots? Ai grunts who could to tasks like mining, building things according to a construction plan, represent the army of a large organisation, etc. These units would be controlled by some kind of datacenter were you give them orders. They would be active as long the owner or a designated operator of an organisation is online and also only in an area of one planet or something like this.

 

Pls send feedback :D

Short Answer: You will not be able to do that, and it would be best to delete this ASAP as this goes against the founding principles of DU so you don't get flamed.

With this quote from NQ:

- Regarding AI, it depends what players are expecting: if it's to help in some basic industrial tasks, or basic automated defense, yes, there will be some - limited - possibilities. However, no AI self-replicating robots, no AI able to replace completely a player in a multiplayer crew ship.

 

Besides the point that you could also think about the implications of such an idea (mechanics, balancing)
