how to add bots?

hey guys i just got this game and really love it. the only problem is that there aren't enough populated servers. not servers with maps i want anyway. is there a way i can add bots to fill the whole where humans should be?

i want real bots not one that are basically just puppets that need to be ordered.

thanks.

Bots aren't in the game sadly... But I think the devs are working on that.

It will be a long time, if ever, before the bots come out...

I doubt the bots will ever make it. They're far to complex to program (so they're not dumb) and there are far more important things for us to use our coding resources on anyway.

make friends with members of ff and ask them or ask your other friends to try out ff. Usually it doesn't take long for lots of people to join after 2 or 3 people are already there.


Edit: whats your steam name? I'm sure a few people here will add you

^ That is the fastest way to get a server to fill up. A lot of people out there are sitting on the fence, trying to find a "good server" to join, and so they end up not playing at all. Just join a server with a good ping, or one you have admin rights on, and start inviting people to join you. Shit fills up quick.

206.217.134.170:27016 - has players most nights between 5pm and 11pm EST. It's a family-friendly server, so language/content is monitored.

Wasn't Dr. Satan working on this a long time ago? Would be a cool addition to a training mode.

Yes it is still up and running. It's the OT (Old Timers) server.

And as Scuzzy posted back then, they do have a language filter that will automatically kick/ban you for an infraction. Just go on, and play without being a problem child, and you'll be fine.

I play there occasionally, and they are a decent bunch. Some people like that, some people don't. Simply put: If you can't deal with that situation, look to the other servers that usually have people on them.
