Simple bot

simple_bot is a point entity available in several Source Engine games. It is a very rudimentary example of a NextBot entity, displaying the bare minimum required for the AI system to function.

This entity uses the model of a female Citizen - with no animations associated with it - and is unable to be damaged or killed. If the map has a .nav file, the entity will move to random areas when possible.

As an alternative to using ent_create for spawning instances of simple_bot, the cheat command simple_bot_add will instantly create the entity wherever your crosshair aims at.
