See also Custom AI for a means of overriding creature AI directly on a lower level.

The core AI scripts that control what a creature does makes use of a large set of variables in the default var_creature.xls local variable table. The variables and their affects are:

Variable name Type Default Description
AI_BALLISTA_SHOOTER_STATUS int 0 When set to AI_BALLISTA_SHOOTER_STATUS_AVAILABLE, will try to move to nearby available ballistae and fire them. Set to AI_BALLISTA_SHOOTER_STATUS_INACTIVE to disable. This variable is modified by the ai_ballista_h script to keep track of ballista-related activities while active.
AI_CUSTOM_AI_ACTIVE int 0 Set via the CAI_SetCustomAI function (include cai_h in your script for custom AI support.)
