Let me add a fifth scenario:

Scenario 5: if the UFAI believes in Nonlocal Causality, it may create
a vast number of identical simulated copies of itself to increase the
chance that it exists in the BAD world rather than in the GOOD world.
This intuitively sounds like a stupid thing to do, and no human would
ever do such a thing; but, without a Local Causality axiom, I wouldn't
rule out this scenario.
