Hey, incase you havn't checked tf2 news since the update
http://www.tf2.com/

Looks like valve have finally done something useful with bots!! yay, I've been waiting to them todo this for agges.

To test them out i quickly hosted a lan server, and added a few of these AI bots (KOTH map as that's the only kinda thing they understand for now) and before i knew it, i had a full blown crazy battle of bots v bots. They had awsome snipers, engineers building lvl 3 SGs + dispensers in key locations, medic + heavy combos!! looks like valve have really put some hard work in on this!!
ok there are still a few bugs with them, and sometimes a friendly medic seems a little.....slow..lol..but hey, this is still just the first beta release...

These could be great fun to have on the servers when we're trying to get them going on a morning or after a crash...beats playing endless rounds of melee only (however much i DO love that)
also unlike the original dumb bots in tf2, you don't need sv_cheats set to 1, so the mains admins with rcon controll could add/remove these as they wish on the fly.

What do ya think?

Does this mean you're gonna have bots to make it appear as people are on the servers, even though there are none?
No offence, but if that's the case I'm gonna have to say no. Hate that shit.

Was a time when I was playing a server, did really good, sniped like a pro.
Then I realized they were bots.

Do the bots use voice comms?

Epic sniper fail nduser.

And this is a new set of developed bot that Valve just released using new AI system, they only work in 3 maps: koth_viaduct, koth_sawmill, and koth_nucleus. You can read more about it in http://www.tf2.com/post.php?id=3279

noo this is nothing more than an idea, and we would never create an image of a full server of just bots...

no bots do not use voice coms, after all they are only bots...
I was simply suggesting the idea of using a small number of these when player counts are very low, creating a server full of them is kinda pointless. unless you just want to practice your sniper skills on your own local hosted server...


I've just run a few CPU usage checks when using bots, doesn't seem very drastic tbh, to host a local server one of my 3GHz cores runs at 100% all the time anways, while the other core is at about 30%, if i add 17 bots i don't see any difference, so all the AI must be processed by the first core aswell...this would by why i got a slight fps drop...

Hmm, bots. My first reaction was that I'm gonna have to be with nDuser on this one. If the bots make it look like the server is almost full when it actually is just a couple of guys and 20 bots, then I'm not sure I like it... Because it feels like it's misleading people joining the server... But on the other hand, they sound kinda cool, gonna have to test 'em out on a lan server when I can Smile And having an empty or almost empty server on a slow morning/after a crash certainly isn't fun either... So I guess I don't know  Rolling Eyes  If you admins decide to use them, I'm sure it'll be in a sensible fashion :)

Edit: Remember Timo, always check the thread once again before posting...
Yeah, that sounds like a sensible use for them Topher Smile

i hope you are drunk topher..i realy realy do  Smile

bots?
i prefer a 2vs2 melee fight with some sweet lols.. no thank you bots are gay AND those bots are morons.. auto aim over powered snipers, engies that keep building at the exact same places bla bla bla :)

seriously, THG is better than those servers that fill bots and makes it look like they are realy popular and shit..


stop drinking whatever you are drinking  Very Happy

ATM we won't really bother with them since they are in beta and only really work well on KOTH maps. but i think we might be able to use them in the morning once its all sorted and have all the cvars you need to set them up.

I think its a good thing and the bots will have different levels of skill i imagine like css when they finish beta atm its very limited.  Wink

Once you start updating bots, they will eventually take over the world.
Be careful.
