Lightbulb Bots and Players Count

Can we have a packet that is sent by bots to inform the server that the client is a bot and not a regular JJ2 client?

One use of this is to exclude bots from player count in server list to know actual players count in a server.

You see servers with player count of 4/32, 2/32, etc all the time while they are actually empty of players.

This is a good idea, though it will not be trivial to implement (but also not impossible)

There is an option in the sgip config to hide certain player names from the list. I was experimenting with it a week ago, but decided to revert it back.
