Half-Life 2 Settings by PowerPC (I do not take credit for this addon)

This addon will allow you to enable Half-Life 2 settings not enabled in Garry's Mod, including changing difficulty from Gmod/HL2/Extra hard. The difficulty changes enemy and friendly npc WEAPON ACCURACY, DAMAGE output and HEALTH,

Overall it improves the first person shooter experience to the player's preferences, making it closer to the gameplay of Half Life 2. It cannot fully replicate the difficulty level of Half Life 2 but comes close.

The menu for this addon is under the utilities tab.

>Modify the difficulty to be Half-Life 2's difficulty, default gmod difficulty, or extra difficulty.
>Set player's movement speed from gmod walk/sprint speed: 250/500 to HL2 walk/sprint speed: 190/320
>Enable/disable mp_falldamage
>Enable/disable ammo limits
>Enable/disable drowning in water
>Enable/disable sprinting limit meter
>Enable/disable the flashlight

----------------Console Commands----------------
(These are all controlled by the menu uder the utilities tab)
hl2s_difficulty --Changes the difficulty (0-gmod's, 1-HL2's Difficulty, 2-Extra Hard)
hl2s_speed --Changes the speed the player moves to be the same as in Half-Life 2
hl2s_ammolimit --Stops you from getting more ammo if you have the maximum amount
hl2s_energy --When Enabled, you will stop sprinting if you sprinted for a while
hl2s_drowning --When Enabled, you will drown if you stay in the water for 30 secs

Due to possible bugs, this addon is not recommended to be used with gamemodes other than sandbox.
Having this addon installed while running another gamemode shouldn't cause any bugs, but the
commands might.

(if you find a bug, please post the error you got in the console, and post what you were doing at the time)

Fantastic mod, but ive noticed 2 baffling things, with ammo limits on guns will spawn ammo on top of them when there picked up, maybe this was intentional idk. Next, why does health and armor provide more health and armor according to the difficulty? I understand if you made it less effective but more effective? These 2 arent game breaking but an explanation would be nice.

Can you make a option that makes the Half Life 2 death?

I want to change the movement speed but I don't want to download this mod because it causes errors with my other addons. What do I type into the console to change the walking and sprinting speed?

Does this change the shotgun's damage to HL2 Standard? In Hl2 its the strongest bullet-type weapon (discluding the crossbow). In Gmod, it seems to shoot spitballs with the strength of an old woman throwing them.
