If I'm playing a hotseat multiplayer game with a bunch of friends, and one has to leave, is there a way to make AI take over that friend's play, in the middle of the game?

sorry, didn't work. Probably gonna have to look through the config files to change it if that's even possible to do with saves. – Paralytic Jan 10 '13 at 12:45

I've been playing hotseat games for the last week in service of certain achievements, and I've yet to find a way for the AI to take over a human's slot. It seems as though once the game is set up, you're stuck with however many humans you expected to play when the game started.
