Ever tired of dying, when a survivor bot has a defib, and the game just goes on without you because bots won't defib you? Well, No more!
How it works :
This plugin scans the map for any survivor death models, after it finds one, if certain criterias are met, a bot with a defib will then be forced to walk up to the dead body, then he is forced to aim at the dead body, take out his defib, and use +ATTACK to successfully defib a dead survivor.
Video Demonstration here
The criterias for bots to defib survivors are as following :
1) There is distance limit, we don't want bots going halfway across the map just to defib one person
2) No survivors must need help (IE Trapped by a SI, incapacitated or hanging from a ledge)
3) There must be no visible threats to the survivor bots for them to accomplish this
Admin Commands (Added in Version 1.3 and 1.4, Root access required) :
sm_regroup - Orders all survivor bots to regroup and move to where the person who issued this command is located
sm_resetbots - Resets all bots and interrupts their current action.
sm_retreat - Orders all survivor bots to retreat from the special infected you are currently aiming at
sm_attack - Orders all survivor bots to focus and attack the special infected you are currently aiming at
Note that these 2 commands also have the same limitations put into place as the defib usage on bots

Version 1.6 06-24-2015 (15543 views)
- Fixed a small oversight where bots would attempt to pick up a defib another person had already picked up, resulting in them never picking up any other defibs (thanks to yurikon for pointing it out!)
Version 1.7 09-25-2020
- Small update, completely removed code for bots picking up defibs that relied on Left4downtown, it is encouraged to run gear transfer instead.
Thanks to dcx2 for suggesting "use weapon_defibrillator" !
It is suggested you run Gear Transfer!
If there is an instance where the bots go all dumb and defib people while ignoring zombies please let me know, as this shouldn't be the case.
