This is going to be a universal bot, yes?
meaning support for every mod, past, present and future?
that means there could be features in future mods that the bots can't handle (using jetpacks is the first example I thought of). So would it not make sense to include support for OPTIONAL act and sense scripts? Include a standard setup that will work for most mods, but allow scripted 'addins' for extra things, like the jetpacks I mentioned, so that they don't have to re-compile the whole bot if something new is added?

that was the point of the UBotScript indeed, although I would have restricted it to the main think() function. But botman's point is that if it is coded neatly enough, it will be just as hard to write any script than to add functionality directly into the source code.

Anyway - I think it is more urgent now to define the game driver API (in another thread). If anybody has time on his hands he can open the discussion and start proposing things

agreed. Lets get a concept working first, later on we can think again about scripting or not.
