Hello !

So a quick one that could be beneficial, and I guess not too hard to implement: Enable 2 x Ammo value similar to "Nightmare!" and "I'm Too Young To Die"; Getting a 4 Shells Pickup would result in getting 8, and so forth. Should Nightmare/I'm Too Young to Die be impacted is left to discuss, but I'm positive they should stay as is and basic x2 instead of x4.

Could turn out useful in cases like TNS with 20+ players and ridiculously low ammo pickups.

Speak up people!

It's unnecessary. You could simply load a DeHackEd patch that doubles the amount of ammo that items give.

But what if double ammo is only needed for a particular rotation? Changing DMFlags is quicker than adding/removing an extra patch wad from the server, just saying.

And what if a particular map has a lower ammo pool available?

Yet another quality input from Medis, thank you!

I am aware it has alreay been discussed and rejected, but we're mostly speaking about Survival here, not competitive modes.
Having doubled ammo and standard respawn times will flow the game differently compared to simply lowering the item respawn time (which would cause a problem for healing items).

Something more general was done and you'll see it in the next release. Here is the changelog entry:
Code:
Added an "sv_ammomultiplier" CVAR that modifies the amount of
ammo given on pickups. It's a scale factor expressed in percentage
terms: defaults to 100 (%) and can range from 0 up to 500 (%).
Applies to coop and survival ONLY: ignored in other modes.

Merci beaucoup Smile
