A common issue on Survival/Coop servers is when people exit too early. For example they may exploit some speedrunning trick and skip a big portion of the map. Naturally, many people get upset about this. To solve this problem I suggest introducing new variable - sv_minkills, which would allow exiting the map only after a certain percentage of monsters is dead. The value ranges from 0 to 100, so sv_minkills 95 would mean that you'd have to kill 95% of the monsters to be able to activate the exit.

Mods that do something like this already exist but I think it would be much nicer to have an "official" variable.

"Nicer" for you, maybe.

But if a fully functional method already exists, why should the devs waste their time?

The advantage of a hard coded version of "kill em all" would be:
The exit switch or exit line would be possible to activate when the percentage of killed monsters is reached instead of a script exits.

Ok, yeah, that makes a lot more sense in gameplay terms of co-op/survival.

Exit and number of kills should surely be reached.

I do hate it when there are speedrunners on the server indeed. Running away from every fight like a coward and not allowing you to explore the map. I'd like to say "yes please" to this request. Smile

If via ACS would be possible to change server variables ...... You understand me. Smile
