I would go for git, but the best way to work (without conflict) would be to each take a part of the work (so it could remain two compatible mods, preventing issues when a part of the code has a bug that needs to be fix and the owner is not available). I am on the alien side (excluding com bot) if this is okay for you. On last thing, can you fully use the entry system to prevent conflicts ? (using filehook in "replace" or "post" for each modified file).

Katzenfleisch, I'm prefer Mercurial, but can work in GIT. How your choice?

@Sepulka, I am working on bots too, any way we could work together ? At the moment I am strongly focusing on the AI of alien lifeforms and will get a v1 ready in a few days so we can share our improvement. (leaving commanders and marines AI). Those lifeforms won't need to be micro managed by the commander but pheromones are still possible if needed.

Waypoint functionality not present.
And I'm not sure it's possible :(

Do you have waypoint features? like bind mouse3 +addwaypoint +removewaypoint +vent +ladder+ +jump + crouch?

That'd be cool.

I found a bug that did not allow the Marines buy weapons.
Pandora's box is opened.
Я нашел баг, который не позволял морпехам покупать что-либо кроме шотгана. :P

Btw. great work!
Turns out the commander bot bug was actually stemmed from the drifter AI code (my bad, but how the hell is the drifter related?)
