The current system for weapon switching/preferences is a defined order, in other ports they've allowed it to be customized by weight, this allows more flexibility behind preferences as you can set weapons at the same weight so it doesn't switch.

In my case, I set all the weapons to the same weight so I never end up switching my weapon unless I run over one with a pistol, or I switch to my fist to pull out the weapon I just picked up.

With ZDaemon's current weapon preferences because I never want to switch on weapon pick up unless I call for it, I have to turn auto switch off and press the weapon that I just picked up (I could toggle auto switch on when I run over a weapon, but that's been a bit tedious to do as i find myself struggling to remember what state i'm in).

I understand that this is just a preference of mine and maybe not many other players really care, but this really does affect the way that I play ultimately, I end up pulling out weapons slower in result of this and I have to condition myself to a new way of playing.

I think you raise a good suggestion Caboose,
with the system you describe it gives more accurate control over your weapons during games.

Am I correct that this is basically making the PWO work with mutiple weapons on the same "height" in the PWO order?

If not then I want you to explain it to me clearly some day Wink

There is a variable in other ports where you can toggle if weapons do or do not switch on the same weight/height priority.

It displays such as "Switch weapons with same priority?" Which I have set to no. If I had it set to yes then I can still switch to weapons that i pick up that have the same weight priority.

Weight is determined by a bar that you can alter from left to right, and you can set weapons at the same value of the bar for the same weight preference. The current method you have to determine a specific order meaning that you can't set weapons to equal priority, one weapon will always take priority over the other.

In my setup I set my fist and pistol to the lowest priority and all other weapons to highest priority. This makes it so I will only switch when I choose to switch to my fist for the fast switching mechanic, or run over a weapon with a pistol. Otherwise I never switch on pickup.

Accepted, but it needs to wait for 1.11.
