Is there a way to make the ai focus less on factories and more on infrastructure (ai doesn't ever seem to build markets or labs ever, only focuses on factories mines and farms (somewhat). To a point that works, but when it the ai doesn't have the metal to use them all, the space is better used for something else. I am also unsure if the AI deploys freighters for trade.
Does the AI pay off the pirate factions? Is there a way for it to be able to ?
