How to add bots to your Urban Terror server via RCON

bot configuration

Next, lets add bots.

addbot arguments

type
Define the name of the bot type here, chose one from the list below.
level
Define a number from 1 to 5 here to set how good the bots will try to hunt you down!
team
Define the color name Red or Blue to set the team this bot belongs to.
ping
Define the average ping time the bot will have, if you define this to a low value the bots will respond fast, I recommend setting this to 40 on a local LAN and 75 on a WAN connection.
nick
Define the nickname of the bot, I usually give a simple name like Bot1, Bot2, Bot3, etc…

In case you want to get rid of one or all bots, simply kick them!

How to install an Urban Terror server with bots on FreeBSD

This will install an Urban Terror server running under the user urban with 4 bots enabled on the server.

First of all we install the binaries, I prefer installing them from the ports, in case you don’t have root access you might want to manually download from https://www.urbanterror.info/. The configuration is quite the same so you should be able to install on your own.

For the port install use:

Lets get some coffee, cause this installation might take a while… The installation requires downloading UrbanTerror411.zip from one of the mirrors which is around 1GB in size 🙂

After installing you need to add a user to run the server.

I don’t set a password for this account simply because I mostly su into it 😉 So…

First create the required directories

In this directory you need to add the configuration files: server.cfg / mapcycle.txt / bots.cfg

server.cfg

In case you want to change this configuration, check out: http://www.urbanterror.info/docs/180-/

mapcycle.txt

I limited the map list to the maps that work fine with bots.

bots.cfg

You can start the server by manual but I would advice you do run the server with this script in tmux or in GNU Screen.

start.sh

Run it by doing

In case you want this server to be reachable for the public, don’t forget to set dedicated to 2.

Good luck! If you have any questions, let me know!
