Improved Bots (Advanced)

This addon makes several changes to bots to make them act more like human players and make them more reliable as teammates. They can use melee weapons, rescue you if you die, react quicker to a teammate being attacked by a special infected and much more.

NOTE: While this addon does improve the bots, it doesn't make them perfect. There is no way for me to fix every issue with the bots, but I have improved them in the areas that are possible. I realize they still aren't ideal teammates.

• Allows you to play versus, surivial, scavenge and realism modes in single player with bots.
• Bots can use melee weapons. (Can be toggled)
• Bots will continue to play after you have died instead of ending the game.
• Bots will react much faster to a player being attacked by a special zombie.
• Bots can perform some simple actions, such as closing safe room doors.
• Bots will move around a player instead of shooting through them.
• Bots are much more likely to save their first aid kits for a player.
• Bots will try to stay in a tighter group with the player.
• Control the bots with a few commands. (Press ALT)
• Easily change the map and game mode while in-game. (Press F1)
• Easily take control of another bot anytime during a game. (Press F2)
• Easily change the difficulty of the game at any time. (Press F3)
• Teleport bots back to you if they get lost or stuck. (Press ALT)

• Works for all official game modes.
• This addon overwrites binds for keys: ALT, F1, F2, F3, F5, F6
• Scripts in your autoexec.cfg file will overwrite this addon's settings, if you want to set custom binds.
• Using bot commands will block Steam achievements for the rest of the campaign you're playing.
• The bot commands won't work on unofficial maps unless they're started through the console.
• Console commands if you don't have F-keys: bots_radial, maps_radial, char_radial, diff_radial
• Other console commands: cycle_chars, bots_toggle_move, bots_toggle_fire
• This version of the addon is ideal for single player.

I wish for this mod that you can enable if you want the bots to follow you or you follow the bots. So the follow the bots would basically act as if you died.

If I host the match and one of my friends join, will this mod still work, or does my friend need the mod too for it to work?

I really see the difference in these advanced mods. They are a bit faster reacting to the special infected. I played multiplayer with a friend before so I didn't really notice any changes but now I have, the only problem is the game still ends even after I die. But I can bare with it. I've been around the non-advanced ones, only problem is they take a lot longer to revive you when another bot is down and one of them died by the time I got to them. :/

On occasions, the game does glitch but it's not too bad. They're actually really hilarious glitches. Caught glimpse of a witch inside the trashcan crying her eyes out and startled her; got incapacitated. Totally worth it. xD 20/10 -IGN

Do not try to play this on expert, is really stupid. Them bots dont care bout objectives they just keep healing with the chopper or car ready to go and you lose the game
