The results on chaos in FRW cosmology with a massive scalar field are extended to another scalar field potential. It is shown that for sufficiently steep potentials the chaos disappears. A simple and rather accurate analytical criterion for the chaos to disappear is given. On the contrary, for gently sloping potentials the transition to a strong chaotic regime can occur. Two examples, concerning asymptotically flat and Damour-Mukhanov potentials are given.
