My bitches n' ho'z in SDSC for providing many months of on-line entertainment.
Bot support was compiled in and I'm proud to say that it works. Not only that, but it works incredibly well! I've tested with 6 or 7 bots and if you're looking for a challenge, DOOM is definitly one to load.
On a different note I went a little overboard on using curved surfaces. Given the nature of this map (any one point can be pretty much seen from any other)
the curves tend to bog down even my P3-500! If you're really hurting for FPS, consider changing "geometric detail" to "low". Personally, this gave me a 10fps boost in most cases and, while the curves weren't as smooth, they were still curvy.
On that vein, if you have a GeForce-based card, this map might be an excellent way to push it to it's limits.
