Last night I was playing a bit of singleplayer, and an Idea hit me on how to make singleplayer fun. What about re-naming the bots to have ranks in front of their name? Like Cpt. Bill Webber. This would just add to the total feel of the game in SP. If thats done, could it be possible to make some bots more skilled than others? Like a Cpl. might be worse shot than a higher ranking Bot. This would allow you to know who you should follow if you are going to attack a flag.

oh, you're sneaky! you want your name in! :lol:

if anything, the bots should support you, and not the other way around!

I love playing BF 'nam in SP just because the bot's follow commands (well, most of the time anyway!) I remember one game on BG:V, on the LZ Albany map, i was manning the 0.50 calon an M113 ACAV, with a bot driving, two bot's on the pintle-mounted M60's and another two sat on the back, both with M60/M79 kits... The VC didn't know what hit them, it was sweet telling the bot driving to "hold position", and then to "Go!" once we'd cleaned up one part of the map, and move on to start again in another map square. I must've racked up 100-odd kills in the space of twenty minutes.

Sounds good, but I don't think it's possible...

Add rank to bot name, yes. Change skill based on rank, no.

Well the next version should at least have ranks on bots, just for the sake of feel and fun. Maybe have a bot tryout where you fly around and pick out who are the best bots, and determine their rank that way?

It should either have firstname-lastname, or rank-lastname (such as Call of Duty). rank-firstname-lastname would be too long, in my opinion. The ranks should also be abbreviated, so it's pvt, not private, etc.
