Due to popular demand Sandbot has bow been released with MetaMod support. A number of users have asked for MetaMod support and after a few false starts Sandbot now has MetaMod support thanks to The Storm of Bots United. Now Sandbot can be used in conjunction with other plugins that support MetaMod.

Sandbot should work with both MetaMod and MetaMod-P however it has been found that Gunman Chronicles support for Sandbot is broken in the original MetaMod due to it not linking all required game entities.

Other features of Sandbot v0.4 include a big increase in the number of waypoints allowed in a map to 2048 (thanks for the idea 256 colors) and the addition of a bot_count cvar that controls how many bots spawn in a server by default. This replaces the previous mapname_bot.cfg approach of autopopulating servers in Sandbot v0.3.1 which had some problems due to Natural Selection doing something unexpected. In any case, if you're looking for a quick game then you'll find your server automatically populated when you jump in.

You can keep up to date with Sandbot development at the Sandbot Forums and Sandbot Steam Community,

Is it possible to give bots the option of using custom playermodels?

/TheWolf not at the moment - the player models are hard-coded.

Hostile intent is a metamod friendly mod, would these bots work for it? That game currently only has one bot still available but only works on one map.

No, it doesn't support Hostile Intent, but it is open source so someone can fork it and add support if they want: Github.com

Which file? I assume it's based off HPB Bot.

if that is the case what would commonly be some commands? I have tried so many things to make waypoints and the only command that works so far is addbot

MADCOW141 waypoint add in the console should add a waypoint for HPB Bot.
But not sure what else it would be based off.
