Improved Bots (Simple)

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.

• Bots can use melee weapons.
• 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.

• Works for all official game modes.
• This addon doesn't block Steam achievements.
• This version of the addon is ideal for single player, multiplayer with bots or servers.

SourceMod Plugins
Unfortunately, the modding system for this game is very, very limited. However, installing SourceMod[sourcemod.net] will allow you to do significantly more with the game than a workshop addon ever could, through additional plugins. SourceMod is intended to be used for servers but can also be used for single player games! Here are some related plugins you may find useful:

Help yourself up when incapacitated, rather than relying on the bots to help you.
Defib using Bots[forums.alliedmods.net]
Allows bots to use defibrillators to revive you if you die.
Gear Transfer[forums.alliedmods.net]
Allows bots to pick up throwables and hand them to you when you aren't holding one.
Allows bots to pick up gas cans required for finale events in certain maps.
Survivor Bot Takeover[forums.alliedmods.net]
Automatically take control of a bot when you die.

No, you don't need any external plugins for this addon to work. Make sure there aren't any conflicting addons installed. The name of this addon will appear red in the in-game addons list if you do.

Did I need a extern plugin or whatever?

Hey, this problem probably was noted somewher and I just couldn't find it, but when enter a campaign, I can't choose what survivor I want. Yes it doesn't matter, but damnit if I want to play as a red kneck, who's always wanted to be an axe murderer then let me. (if you don't get it, you aren't a true fan of Left 4 Dead)

The bots become extremely stupid in versus and somewhat in mutation. However this mod works perfectly in campaign and survival so please fix.
