Bots are multiplying over time
cosmodog
Not sure how its happening, but has anyone else experienced the number of bots rising gradually over time?  I usually have 280 ish, but the other day my players reported tons more than normal. So i did bot.count and had over 1500.  Ive eliminated some mods  thought may have caused the issue that i had recently added (pilot eject by Redbgr), butI still have the problem.

The best I can tell is its the biome bots, based upon the kits I have on them. I havent had alot of time to dive deeper, so I have just been restarting the server daily for now.
I  Have used BotSpawn forever and am fairly proficient at the configuration, although I do mess up every now and then and have to reload a cfg because i didnt validate it. Side note- would be cool if we could allow the config, if invalid to be saved anyway when the default loads, so that we can fix the issue quicker :)

Ideas?

Hi,
That's definitely not good! I'll find out what's happening.
I'll PM for more info.

For anyone reading, it looks like it's just a reporting issue that's easily fixed.
The recorded number of bots isn't being reduced on biome-bot death.

Thanks for checking, so far so good, 3 hours later and the count looks solid. Players are swearing it felt like there were more, but I think the roaming mechanic change had them fooled.  Placebo effect:)

Good to know. Thanks. :)

Just to verify, is it easily fixed by us (idk how to correct a reporting issue), or does that mean to wait until the next update?  Thank you for all the hard work and dedication. Much appreciated!

Hi,
The issue is just in number reporting so unless you need accurate bot.count info for some reason, there's no problem.

I was holding off until the next worth-while update because that's really just there as a debug hangover but, if people are using it, I'll push an update sooner. :)

To clarify, BotSpawn wont spawn more bots than you asked for.

I am having issues with biome bots multiplying over time.  This seemed to happen after I changed my conf setting from the default to: "Respawn_Timer": 300  - I only have it listed to spawn 1 bot per biome, and each is has a unique kit.  I have seen 6 of the same kit bot standing on the same rock, with numerous others roaming nearby.

Ok? I wasn't able to replicate that when I checked for cosmodog, but I'll look into it again.

I have been "botcounting"  approx every hour for the last two days (12 hours a day) since reading this thread and i still have a max botcount of 370 (or less depending on deaths)
my respawn timer is set to 600 and suicide to 800
