• Bot aiming has been tweaked to look more smooth and human-like as well.
• Moving platform/better lift support has been added.
• Fixed up the horrible, horrible FOV code (which also fixed a bug with turret usage).
• Many things have been done to drastically increase the speed of the bot (CPU-wise).
• Skill 4 bots no longer have absolutely perfect accuracy (it was beginning to annoy even me).
• Bots strafe in combat more intelligently.
• Bots don't get added in waypoint edit mode.
• Fixed up the strafe-troubleshoot routine.
• Fixed up tracking-of-immediate-enemy routine.
• Changed method of getting items.
• Fixed a possible cause for program crashing.
