Skirmish vs CPU AI problem

Hi All / Gearbox,

When playing against any of the HW1 races, after a while the AI will give up on trying to build more ships. I’ve also noticed that the AI is not aggressive enough at all. Furthermore, I think the AI in general could do with a bit of a tweak to make it a tad more difficult.
Balancing between the HW1 races and the HW2 races is also slightly off, with the HW1 races feeling under-powered, especially when HW2 races get access to ship upgrades.
