So, I've played quite a bit with the new 1.30 patch and I've noticed the AI is still repeatedly failing to pick up loot at cleared locations. In the last 2 games I played I had a good time criss-crossing the map and grabbing all this loot, but it is a bit disheartening to see the AI ignore them.
Also, I know this has been a long-standing issue, but any chance the AI will ever be able to upgrade outposts? I honestly find the boosts one can get at outposts placed at the edge of your empire to be extremely effective at repelling the AI advances as well as to defeat otherwise unbeatable units earlier in the game (like dragons). However, if the AI can't ever upgrade them, it would make sense to tie these bonuses to buildings you can build in your cities. The buildings would be the same buildings you can upgrade an outpost with, but they would affect all outposts tied to the city in question, and perhaps even the area around the city. It always seemed strange that you could get the benefits only from the outpost area and not around your cities.
As I come across additional items that I haven't seen mentioned in other threads I'll post them here.
