Long time no see - but after some years I got back to my old mod and tweaked some little things
that still bothered me.

Here now what's changed in the version 1.4.0:

Bot AI:

  • Bots use weapons more wisely now, selecting the best weapon for each situation (bot skill, player distance, active powerups).
  • The variable "mod_botskill" sets the skill of randomly added bots (overrides g_spskill). If empty, g_spskill is used.

Scoring

  • A player cannot "steal" a point by suiciding himself after an opponent hit.
  • A player cannot (accidently) take a point from his opponent away by knockbacking himself after a hit.

Gameplay

  • Plasma and rockets move faster.
  • All Weapons gameplay is more balanced toward rocket-launcher and not the railgun (less ammo for railgun, more ammo for rocket launcher).
  • A player cannot hold more BFGs than two at a time.

Scoreboard

  • Spectators are automatically ready.

So basically the scoring is now more precise, bots play much better now and plasma + rockets are a bit faster.
