SuperBots v1.2
Mutator for UT2003
Created by Mysterial (mysterial@comcast.net)
5/25/03


To install the manual .zip version, extract it to your UT2003\System folder. By default that's C:\UT2003\System.

This mutator makes the bots do some smarter things. The most obvious of them is:
-Bots dodge more
-Bots dodgejump
-Bots liftjump
-Bots dodgejump for speed while moving
-Bots keep track of important powerups (super shield, double damage, superweapons, etc) and will head for them as they spawn.
-Bots take advantage of dodgejumping to take shortcuts
-I added code for walldodging, but it's rare to see a situation where a bot could use it
-Bots don't stupidly charge with shock rifle or instagib gun
-Bots won't waste their spawn protection by firing right after they spawn
-Bots use the shieldgun if they're near death and running towards health

You will need at least version 2225 of UT2003 to use this mutator.

If you're using the TL on your server, SuperBots needs to be added to your ServerPackages. Otherwise, you don't need to.

Known Issues:
-The shield effect won't always display when the bots are protecting themselves with the shield gun, making it look like they have God mode on if you hit the shield. The bots do not cheat.
-SuperBots won't be compatible with mods that change the Bot Controller class. To my knowledge, the only incompatible mods released thus far with gameplay such that you'd want to use this mod with it are TTM and my own Random Item Placement, the latter of which is getting an update to include these features anyway ;)
