function bool HigherPriorityThan (UTDefensePoint S, UTBot B, bool bAutoPointsInUse, bool bPrioritizeSameGroup, out int NumChecked)

determines if this point is higher priority than the passed in point

Parameters:

  • S - the point to check against
  • B - the bot that's checking
  • bAutoPointsInUse - whether other bot(s) on this team are using the automatic defensepoints (so allow low priority)

  • NumChecked - the number of usable points so far

Returns:

whether this point is a better choice
