    Frequently asked question

    Q: How do I play with bots in zombies?
    A: To my knowledge you can't. The bot command will spawn bots made by Plutonium but they're made for debug/development so they don't move.
    An additional mod like Bot Warfare that adds logic is necessary and I don't know any mod that does that. If you know one feel free to answer this post and I'll add it.

    Q: How do I rename bots?
    A: Make sure your game is closed and go in %localappdata%\Plutonium\storage\t4\mods\mp_bots
    Open z_svr_bots.iwd with an archive software like 7-Zip or WinRaR.
    Then open bots.txt, change the values and save once you're done. One line is one bot name.

    Q: Why are the bots not moving?
    A: You either didn't install the mod or you didn't load it. Read the instructions again
