I've read on some threads about bots or programs that help your country. Are these tools still being used or did I take wrong?

players can't use bots or any other progs to run their countries automatically.

bots are game created to increase land available (and fluff up market but that's side-effect).
Patience: Yep, I'm with ELK and Marshal.

ELKronos: Patty is more hairy.

Galleri: Sadly pics of my boobies are on my ftp-folder.

Without bots the markets would be trashy as fluff. You can't tell me any of the non bot servers have healthy markets.

Bots used to be a thing back in the earth 2025 days, players using bots to run countries, it was illegal back then and would get you deleted and maybe banned, it confused me when I came back to EE to find that now Bots are legitimate entities but describing something different from back in the day. Anyhow seeing as player bots were a thing back then I don't know why they couldn't still be used now esp on FFA???

Here you go http://wiki.earthempires.com/index.php/Bots

Surely if it was possible then, it's still possible now?

anything that runs countries/plays turns/submits actions for you -- whether that's a browser extension or an autonomous bot program -- is very much against the rules.

think of the "bots" we run more as NPC countries. These are run on a codebase that we control and are there to provide some stability for land/market. Sometimes that doesn't work as designed, though :p
