Cursor AI

This is a proof of concept GroupAI for spring. This AI was intended to show allied players where your cursor was and thus implying what you were doing or looking at ingame.

The AI exploited the marker interface to draw a cursor icon onto the map and then erase and redraw to update its position. This worked well until the player attempted to draw a marker or diagram on the map and the AI erased everything as soon as it had been drawn due to a hiccup in the engine interface.

This AI also included colored floating markers that acted as trails. These colors would indicate the current activity of a unit, e.g. yellow for building or green for movement commands.
