I figured out that using the mint-arena cdaef49 revision that the bots can, and will, use all the entities they come across, unlike 116ec08 where they couldn’t. Good thinking on that one zturtleman!
Okay, I’ll keep that in mind when I get around to testing it.
Turns out activating entities wasn’t the problem. The problem is the bots lose their LTG/NBG once they go to activate an entity.
