Whenever I see the Roc bots, I recognize some names (including mine), but not others. Does anybody know who they were named after and why? Also, are those people still around?
I would assume they were part of the originals that started with roc clan.... Prolly people that were on the servers at the time Roc was at it's highest population. Some of them look familiar, but then, how many fraggars are there out there ;)
well, there's Godh, who used to be in charge of sof2files and then created Goldrush. There's slowjusko, who created mandown and then unf104. Most of those names are from people who started the modding community, but there are some I don't recognize.

I very seldom play Rocmod any more (simply to get away from the bots) but list the names and let's see if they ring a bell.

The bots have evolved from Mandown. Then GODh took the bot txt and added to it. All the people who assisted in Mandown and Goldrush were added along with active members in the sof2 community at that time. Roc mod has NO bots. It tells you to download Goldrush or Mandown and use there bot files. When Goldrush 3.0 is released there have been 1 or 2 additions like "Goody" But all the bots were named after real people that were well known. There are alot from Huurs-Universe Which is the oldest Goldrush clan. Huurs Univers (Game Server by DS-GameSolutions.net)
During the 3+ years of development lots of people helped out to make Goldrush what it is today...
We want to thank:
Programming: * SlowJusko: he wasnt part of the Goldrush team, but thanks to his released ManDown sourcecode, i learned a lot from that. And the ManDown bots were the basis for the Goldrush bots. * Zwakstroom: helped out in the early days of Goldrush. He did some essential parts for the Lastman gametype. * Buu: helped us with some great features like the adminsystem, the mapvotingsystem, some useful cvars like the altermessages, flying bodyparts, etc etc * GODh: he did the rest :)
Maps: * Hector Infector: creator of Factory Assault, Alcatraz and Harbour Assault * Marko: creator of Mayan Temple and Chop Suey * Hellf1re: creator of Subway * Cornelius: creator of Supply 22c * Torchy: creator of Colombian Vertigo and Submarine facility * Twitch & Duhast: creators of the Siege map * Dr.Pimp: creator of Bridge * Fix_1138: creator of the Marrakech Street map * Raven: creators of the original Finca map * DaveJ for allowing me to use his dust-maps! A legend has spoken :) * GODh: did the rest of the maps (including testing/improving/balancing/recompiling the mentioned maps)
Skins: * Jet: creator of the SF1 and Terrorist skinpacks * GODh: creator of the metalheads skinpack, several woman skins and the weaponskins
RMG terrains: * Booda: creator of the Australian RMG terrain. Did some special updates for Goldrush as well (and created the sphinx for Egypt RMG) :) * GODh: creator of the Egypt RMG terrain...
BOT Routes: * ShootMe, for helping out on botroutes * Goody, for helping out on botroutes * GODh, did a lot of them
Graphical work: * Sene: creator of several parts of our hud (especially for the DEM and SABO gametypes) * GODh: he did a lot too :)
Sounds: * Raven: we used some sounds from SOF1 for that extra nostalgic feeling
Testservers: * Dennis a.k.a. ShootMe from Huur's Univers, a Goldrush fan server (DM), a 2.2 testserver and a great help
The rest: * Arkansis: we used some parts of his botfiles * Cisco, great overal help, good techical knowledge, and now part of the Agent Rez mod (good luck with AR) * Raven, for creating a great game * Silvia Dante (BX clan) for creating some great custom textures for the Alcatraz map * VCA·überSnake® for his manual on how to run a Goldrush server on Linux * AphexTwin for adding Goldrush support to his great SOF2 Runner (servertool) * tGN converted some SOF1 sounds for use with SOF2 and allowed us to use them for our mod :) * ReverendTed: For his help on some coding-issues and problemsolver (especially RMG) * Dennis a.k.a. ShootMe from Web hosting services by DS-Hosting Solutions for hosting our current website and forums! * The people from Jolt.co.uk - Online Gaming - Clan Server Rental for hosting our website/forums/gameserver for apx 2.5 years...

No it isnt ;) Fragger was around at the time of the early Goldrush so it will probably be you m8. Horizon wasn't he a mod here a while back? Bruut isn't on that list but he is a Goldrush player from Huurs. Torchy went on to do some maps for enemy territory and I think he is still there. RevTed did the roc 2.1c bot fix and the roc swarm mod. I think he is also the mod at planet soldier.
weird that hes on the list :/ i played with him @ 1.00 and now owns a little @ gold gameservers. ... demolition
