An interesting thought.

I was playing a game I made up called Tie Bomber in which I use a skin that looks like a tie fighter and fly around in the air trying to bomb the bots on the ground.

This was my thought.
Why not enable bots to have the ability to fly? This would make for some interesting DM, as the player already has this option if he places sv_cheats 1 in the command path, why not allow bots to fight him in mid air?

Because then you would have to rename them Neo and Agent Smith.

That movie was lacking in gunplay.

Go see "Equilibrium" -- best gunplay in ANY movie EVER.

HAH! I LOVED that movie! I never even bothered to see the Matrix sequel after watching Equilibrium. It's like the Matrix, but with a better plot (akin to, say, Fahrenheit 451), more realistic and impressive fight scenes, and some incredible acting abilities (Christian Bale, Sean Bean, Angus MacFayden, Emma Watson, etc.)

Anyways, back to the topic at hand...

You sure are lucky, having seen EQUILIBRIUM already. Over in this neck of the woods, it will be out on December 6th.

See the trailer here: http://www.apple.com/trailers/miramax/equilibrium.html

I would like to see my bots flying around as helicopters and tie fighters. It would give some spice to the game. It would be a shame to have all these air born skins that are out there and never be able to use them for much.

Unfortunately this would require a reprogram of the bot code, which was not done by Randy and has not been updated in eons. :(
