    Coded by cheeseh, this bot supports multiple mods (including
    natural selection) and is the most human-like NS Bot available.
    RCBot is a bot for aliens and marines, but most people use it just
    for marines as WhichBot and HiveMind are available for aliens and
    players to practice their commanding skills.
    Not using aimbots, these bots were designed to mimic humans
    under tough situations whether their infantry portal is under attack
    or they are losing a hive. Uses the MegaHAL chat system to record
    human 'say' text and then 'say' it later at an appropriate time.
    MegaHAL makes these bots even more human. Some people have even
    managed to get bots to hate other bots.

    Sounds cool. Haha, that'd be funny to see two bots swearing at eachother.

    So... question, from one who likes playing against bots (you can often win all by yourself on a siege map for instance, as rines...) but knows very little about running plugins etc.... Can I go DL one of these and install it to my client version of NS3.04a_whatever, or do I HAVE to go get and run the server side version?

    Thanks- biggrin.gif

    if i have read the RCbot information correctly, it has come a LONG-**** way from the version that worked in NS 2.0/2.01

    "All three of these bots' latest releases are all metamod plugins for
    Metamodx v1.17", so I guess you're setting up your own LAN dedicated server to test it out.

    Still, for the hassle (And experience of running a quick server), training with lifelike bots aint bad.

    I should turn off my constie icon and go around with a [wb] tag, see how many people ask if I am one. biggrin.gif

    nice summation ModChaosControl, well done.

    just one note, WhichBot also :
    -runs in classic under certain maps
    -will build upgrade chambers, rts, and hives
    -can leap as a skulk, blink as a fade
    -is effective as a lerk, fade, skulk, and gorge (not so much as onos :/)
    -you can control the bots (if you have admin, AFAIK) to form a pack around you, essentially, leading them.
    -you con modify and control the behaviour of the bots via config files (how many to wiat up in a pack, which structs to prefer in attacking a base, etc)

    If and when I build my new computer, this one will definatly server as a LAN testing ground for an NS server.

    I could do it now, I just don't know how to set up and install a dedicated server, then connect to it from the same, haha

    no offence to the creators of RCbot, but they still have a LONG way to go.

    there is a definate improvement over the old versions, and that is good.

    but the NS atmosphere is kinda ruined when you watch a fade WALK towards you (i can understand if things like blink are hard to code for bots, but walking?)



    the marines have had some awesome improvement (they actually notice waypoints now), but they kinda suck at aiming (partially intentional, but i doubt they wanted that much aim reduction)

    well, i've been using whichbots on our 'clan'-server for half a year orso, first in ns 2.01, then in 3.0beta4a, and although the bots are reasonably dumb (when we play against em, we usually play against 2x the number of players on the human team and we always win...) it's good for newbies to learn the basics of weapons, buildings, and commandering. i learned a lot from the 100 or so matches i played on the [SA] clan's sandbox server (ns 2.01) against the whichbots.

    i hope these teams will keep on improving their bots, i really appreciate their work and without those whichbots i would still be NSPlayer wink.gif

    That would be the RCBot, and the latest one DOES NOT burst fire with the Light Machine Gun. I don't know what you are talking about.

    For hivemind 3.2 and WhichBot (all), you need metamod. Metamod is included in the ZIP files, however.
