Can a Dev confirm or not, that using bots to seed is allowed, even though they do not count towards player number on the server?
I am not a developer, however, OWI prohibits the use of bots during seeding on licensed servers pursuant to Code of Conduct, Server Administration Policy § 2(7). Excerpt:
Using any sort of fake clients, bots, or Squad instances with the intent of seeding or boosting player counts is not permitted
Dan186D, or Squiders on YouTube, said his bot mode is allowed by the OWI because the bot is not boosting player count. The bot is a basic AI that engages the players or each other and is replaced by real players one by one.
Developer Zeno replied in the thread and didn't raise any objections to Squiders' words. So maybe only this mod is allowed?
It would be interesting to see PVE servers be a thing
