Natural Selection is an action-strategy game for the PC. It is a "Half-life modification", which means it is written on top of the Half-life game engine. "Mods" are a new sort of underground game development that enables small teams to create games using the technology of existing games. This means less expensive and lower risk game development, which allows experimentation and innovation. This arrangement also implies that "mods" are made as art, not for making money. When complete, Natural Selection will be released for free to all owners of Half-life, which is required to play Natural Selection. Game summary Multiplayer-only Half-life mod where one team plays marines and the other plays aliens. The humans must keep their cool and work together to assault an alien-infested spacecraft or colony. Marines vs. marines and aliens vs. aliens scenarios are also supported. "First-person strategy" with a real resource model and consequences for actions....

Nice dude! but there are better bots for NS, op4 and hldm already. You should concentrate more on They Hunger and GC and add waypoints support of better yet try use the source codes of parabot or jk_botti on those since they have automatic waypointing routine already.

Thanks - yes you're right there are better bots out there but I do intend to improve support for all games and mods I'm supporting (I want to add commander bots for Natural Selection for example). Also, it's a bit of a learning experience for me.
As for using code from other bots, I have nothing against it but I'm not sure how hard it would be - the template I'm working from didn't even have waypointing code so I had to modify and copy in the waypointing code from a different version of HPB Bot (it wasn't simply copy and paste).
I'm not forgetting about the Gunman Chronicles or They Hunger though - I want to have the Gunman Chronicles bots at least use one weapon variant in the next release.
