AI War:Sentry Eye
|This page is up to date for game version 6.010|
| For the Core variant of this structure that appears on AI Homeworlds, see Sentry Eye (Core).|
AI Eyes are a direct feed back to the AI core network: when player ships gang up on the AI overwhelmingly, alarms are tripped and higher-level AI ships come pouring out of the Eye. The only efficient way to kill the Eye is by destroying all of the non-wormhole guard posts of the AI on this planet, so you'll need to do guerrilla-style raids until it dies automatically with the last such guard post. Specifically, the AI Eyes make sure that your ships only ever outnumber the AI ships 2:1. Spawned ships are zombie bots, which are overly aggressive as well as being immune to reclamation.
This unit is an Eye and shares some perks with the other types.

How to counter when in the AI fleet
N.B. If you are taking over an AI planet anyway, there appears to be an alternative to killing every guard-post on the planet. If one has supply on the planet, they can kill the command station and build their own. The AI Eye will then self-destruct regardless of other guard-posts still living at this time.
Moving some of your fleet into Transports will generally halt the deluge of ships from an Eye.
