Don't dismiss this straight away with "BOTS ARE BAD LULZ" because I'm serious and have some solid things to say: I believe we should have the option of adding somewhere around 5 bots per side to our server. Why? When we have low playercouts in an impromptu test, we can flesh out the playercount and give it a more representative feel, 3v3 never represents an actual server but 8v8 does, even if the bots aren't playing well 8 players beats 3 When we have midrange playercounts we can add those 4-5 per side to fill the server up to 24 players, again, even if the bots aren't playing particularly intelligently, it better emulates the more crowded feeling of a full server. It can't hurt those maps who don't have nav meshes, or those authors who don't want to add bots to their tests. As long as it's kept entirely optional, no one who doesn't want bots has to suffer their stupidity It doesn't take much to upload a nav mesh as well as a bsp, then authors can choose to add some bots in if they want a few more players. When I suggested this in chat I got some violent opposition for some pretty dumb reasons (bots suck is not a good reason, since I only want the option to add some bots not having bots on all the time, that would suck) Does anyone have any meaningful comments on why this shouldn't/can't be done? If no one does, can we get on this?
