This Mod Features...

Bot Tweaks

  • Bots act more like real players when noticing spies.
  • Bots switch classes to keep others from being overused.
  • Bots prefer to go for health packs more often.
  • Bots search farther for ammo.
  • Medic bots move around more often and try to stick close to their patient.
  • Sniper bots look for better spots more close to the action.
  • Sniper bots aim more realistically.
  • Engineer bots build in more reliable spots.
  • And various other changes.

Many Supported Gamemodes

  • Attack / Defend
  • Capture The Flag
  • Control Points
  • King Of The Hill
  • Medieval Mode
  • Mann vs. Machine
  • Payload
  • Payload Race
  • Player Destruction

Unlockable Weapons / Cosmetics For Bots

  • Bots spawn with random weapons that they support.
  • Certain weapons such as the sandvich are not supported.
  • Bots also spawn with random cosmetics.

Almost Full Support For Dedicated Servers

  • Issues that aren't seen offline are present on dedicated servers.
  • Said issues sometimes depend on the way the server is set up.
  • I can't test dedicated servers so I can't guarantee assistance in getting it working.

Community Maps

The Bot Overhaul supports quite a few community maps and there are plans to support even more in the future. There is a workshop section dedicated entirely to community created maps and gamemodes that can be played with enhanced bots.

Beta Features

By default some gamemodes and features are disabled because they're not ready to be a part of the final mod. You can play with these and help beta test them without downloading anything else. Expect bugs and and various other issues when using beta features.

Some Bot related commands are broken or slightly harder to work with when using this mod though everything should remain functional for the most part. If you want to mess around with bots then look at the "Read Me" for more info.

  • Is there a way for the map starts with 24 bots by default? I can't change the bot count as usual instead I have to use a console to change the bot count.

    I got the mod to work on Linux, I'll send the files for Part 2 if you want. Note that the mod has no difference from windows on Mac or Linux, if you do my process.

    My process was:
    Download Part 1 and 2 of bot mod.
    Download Linux (or Mac, if on Mac) versions of Metamod and Sourcemod.
    Download the TF2 dedicated server for your OS.
    In the dedicated_server_folder/bin/  (not dedicated_server_folder/tf/bin/) files, find the .so files (Or .dylib if you're on mac,  I think) in the bin folder that end with _srv (also _s, I think; but I'm not sure) and copy them into your own Team Fortress 2/bin folder. (not tf/bin/)
    then remove the .dll files still there from the Windows version of Bot Mod.

    The mod will work then, just fine.

    Hey there. It seems like another update has broken the mod at the moment. Single player shortcut works fine and the menu functions as normal. Once you get into a match however the bot names, weapons, cosmetics, and seemingly the behaviour too remains unchanged.

    I'm willing to admit if i've installed it incorrectly, but I don't think I have. All I had to do different was change the shortcut destination as my steam games are in a different location. I have tried setting the "-insecure" launch option in steam as well, but this didn't change anything.

    Looking forward to giving the mod a go. Seems like a great way to play maps that don't get any love online anymore.

    EDIT: For anyone experiencing the same thing as me. I contacted Showin who told me that it may be an issue that some people are having with sourcemod not working. For reference i'm 64 bit. I haven't found a solution but if I do i'll edit this again.
