WAY POINTS:

*.wpt (or waypoint; * means any given file name) are a grid or trail in which the computer (bots) use to allow them to move around the maps. To create a *.wpt file.

Do the following steps:

First start by loading the map in which you choose to make the wpt. Then you will either add a bot (by hitting the insert key: for windows) or typing /dropwaypoints in the command prompt (by hitting the “T” key). Then to see these way points you will type /showwaypoints 1 (change 1 to 0 to turn it off). This will show up as blue lines on the screen behind you moving as you move.
Next you will run around your map hitting all major points on the map (spawn points, flags, capture points, etc). An easy way to find all of your spawn points is to add a lot of bots so they spawn at all the points so you can tag them up (a phrase meaning that you run up to them so they can follow the path you are laying down).

Last you save:

After a while you should save. Saving is your friend, do it offend. To save simply type /savewaypoints, or you can save the waypoints as any name by typing /savewaypoints WHATEVERNAME. This works just like the save map function. Note: when you load the waypoints (by adding bots) it will load the one named as the map name (EX: mapname.wpt).
To load waypoints, (without adding bots, or from another map) type /loadwaypoints or the same as above to load any *.wpt in the base directory. The wpt will load automatically when you add bots.

A few tips:

Start with the easiest parts of the map then work to the hard parts, save the map after each part. In Blood Frontier this is not necessary because there are void wpts (if you fall off the map, fall in lava or death material, it will not save the waypoint). But for all other types you will have to save the map offend or if you mess up there will be a lot of bots killing themselves. -_-
To clear all the waypoints on a map you will type /clearwaypoints, to make it permenent, save the waypoints after you clear them.

I’m sure I did not get all of the function that you can use so if some of the admins could elaborate on some of the "hidden" functions that would be great.
Also if you have anything to add please do.
