Advanced bot maps for Base - The mod!
These are improved bots for Base, the default Tribes 2 game mode. These maps are incompatible with other mods.
The mod contains 64 maps in total mostly for CTF, Siege, and CnH. In addition to having many bug fixes over the default bots, they can now throw and detect mines, use missile launchers, drive vehicles, use the MPB teleporter, deploy pulse/motion sensors and cameras, use paths to attack generators, and many more. These (version 3) bots were released by Lagg-Alot back in 2005.
While this mod doesn't contain any new maps, it combines all the bot supported maps by Lagg-Alot, Roboto, and MetaDrax (as of 10 February 2023) into one giant pack. Additionally, these maps maps are now separated from any other mods' map lists, because they are now visible only when you launch this mod. Because these maps have custom scripts, separating them from other mods solves many problems that were caused if you tried the maps in a mod like Shifter, Meltdown 2, and so on, which are incompatible with these AI scripts.
This mod also lets you add up to 63 bots from the main menu, without having to type anything into the console to add more than 16 bots.
1. Put everything from the "Tribes2InstallFolder" to your Tribes 2 install folder and OVERWRITE stuff when asked. For example, the 'GameData' folder from here should overwrite the 'GameData' folder that you have.
2. PLAY by using the 'BaseBots_Offline/Online' .bat file! That's it.
3. If you still have the old standalone maps, delete your older .vl2 maps from the "GameData\Base" folder: CNHBotMapPack, CTFBotMapPack, SiegeBotMapPack, lag-alot_map_pack, and my 8 maps ending with "Rob".
