    I have seen several maps which come with bots that are auto created when you load the map. Can you execute any scripts when the map loads? Also, can you cause scripts to execute by interacting with the map itself (ie, press a button and a bot appears). tr_aim appears to have this functionality, but I didn't know if it had anything corresponding on the server-side. One final question: is it possible to load up the bots and then change sv_cheats back to 0, achievement-farming style?

    Any information generally relating to scripting/bots in mapping is appreciated. I'm not actually an active map developer but I would love to investigate the possibilities of making a more interactive and efficient achievement map, as well as training maps. And finally, I apologize for the rough nature of this post - I hope you get what I mean! :laugh:
