Re: With my overly-active imagination....

Zbot was a name used by my partner in crime's special walk script that made the units actually walk rather than glide, so a flying zbot would be impossible.

Re: Water/model effects

I personally have the water set to the lowest for the sake of OTA. The highest is ultimate, and yes I agree the white lines are ugly.

The AA on units are nice enough for me, you probably haven't got a decent graphics card for it to be enabled.
