When I play the map “Italy”, the AI never builds the special watch-towers inside its fortified city. That ruins the fun to conquer it!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?

The AI would build the special towers to defend its city (prioritising those towers versus the normal ones.
A solution could be that, when the AI wants to build a tower, it checks first if there is an unbuilt special tower in a certain range: if indeed there is, it builds that tower instead; alternatively, all towers could be already built at the start).

:arrow_forward: IMAGE

:point_down: ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.

:arrow_forward: GAME FILES (SAVE / RECORDING)

:point_down: Attach a SAVE GAME (.aoe3Ysav) or GAME RECORDING (.aoe3Yrec) of the match where you encountered the issue. Link it below if using an external file service.

Not necessary.
