Working on PeZBOT (CoD4)

With the release of CoD MW Remastered spurring interest, I thought now would be a good time to revisit CoD4 and give this classic the polished bots it deserves.

Since it would be easier to improve PeZBOT rather than building new A.I. from the ground up, I will be spending the next several months working on PeZBOT for CoD4. Here is my agenda:

 - improve performance
 - fix teleporting bug
 - give each bot a random class and only let them use the class they are given for the entire match
 - permanently disable spectator mode and killcam (or fix the wobble)
 - improve bot menu options (add in odd increments for balanced teams in solo play - 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11)
 - add more animations (such as standing animation)
 - add footstep sounds
 - increase bot movement speed (to match human players)
 - make bots throw more grenades
 - make bots place claymores
 - make bots use rocket launchers more often
 - make bots use grenade launchers
 - make bots wait until the match/round begins and stop after the match/round ends

Expect PeZBOT 012p soon.
