This modder continues to blow away Skyrim’s lackluster artificial intelligence

We’ve written before about how the modder Ether Dynamics is outclassing Skyrim devs by giving foes with one-track-mind AI a broader variety of ways to bring the pain. As he rightly explains, “No one reminisces about the 10 skeletons they killed, because they’ll be just like every other skeleton they’ve killed up to that point and thereafter.” So, he’s spiced things up by introducing two new enemy units that react smartly. These computer-controlled cutthroats play a lot more like you and I do, by looting potions from fallen combatants, and just avoiding general bad guy stupidity.

Check out his tutorial for some truly fierce mages and knights.
