A New New Bot

Introducing the newest incarnation of the TF2Maps Bot: Mecha Engineer.

Mecha Engineer brings many speed, stabiliy and quality of life improvements and stand on the shoulders of all the great bots before it.

TF2maps Bot lives here:
https://bot.tf2maps.net/

The current command list can be found here:
https://bot.tf2maps.net/commands.php

Source Code can be found here:
https://github.com/TF2Maps/MechaEngineer

Mecha Engineer continues to support all the same commands you know and love with some new commands as well:
  • !dl <query> Searches the TF2M site for a map with that name
  • !tf2m <query> Searches the TF2M site for full text forum posts
  • !vdc <query> Searches the VDC
  • !add Now accepts a link _or_ a map name.
    • __Example__: !add rumford will add the latest version of pl_rumford to the bot
    • _You will need to link your discord to your forum account for this feature_: See #faq for more information

We need your feedback!

This bot is new, and there may be some bugs. Please post in this thread with as many details (link to a discord message if possible) and we will do our best to fix it in a timely manner.

Suggestions for improvements? Complaints about missing features?
Discuss them below and we'll see what we can do!

How about a command to check if you've linked the forum account correctly?

I could add a separate command for this; but I have added some error handling so if you dont have your account linked the bot will tell you so when you try to add a map using fuzzy search. Do you think that satisfies the problem or do you still think its worthwhile to have another command?

A lot of requests on the discord have been for separate competitive and casual lists on the bot, because a huge list of 34+ maps have happened where a bunch of them were comp only

Yep we are planning on doing so. We didn't do it on the first rollout of comp testing because of the amount of work involved. This will be coming soon-ish
