General Improvements (Advanced)

Makes various improvements to the game.

Includes my Improved Bots (Advanced) addon.

• Moved melee weapon to its own slot. (Press 7 or cycle between primary weapon and pain pills.)
• Melee weapons and throwables can now be used while incapacitated.
• Players can now crawl slowly while incapacitated. (Only with W key; use mouse to steer.)
• Players are no longer slowed when they receive damage.
• M16's magazine size reduced from 50 to 40, damage increased from 33 DPB to 44 DPB.
• Magnum's shooting speed increased, making its DPS similar to dual pistols.
• Carried ammo for pump shotguns increased from 56 to 72.
• Ammo upgrade packs are now carried in the misc slot.
• Mounted guns take 20 seconds to overheat, 8 seconds to cool down.
• L4D2 mounted gun's fire rate increased by 50%.
• Reduced fall damage and increased distance to receive fall damage to be more realistic.
• Chainsaws cut through hordes a little more smoothly and have unlimited fuel.

• Works for all official game modes.
• This addon overwrites binds for keys: ALT, F1, F2, F3, F5, F6
• Using bot commands will block Steam achievements for the rest of the campaign you're playing.

I try to offer quick support for all of my addons. If you have any issues or questions, please post a comment and I will respond as soon as I can.

This addon includes the Improved Bots addon, so there's no need to have that enabled if you are using this addon. It might prevent this addon from working properly.

If have already installed improved bots advanced will this throw anything off? in it?

That explains it, it's a shame but it's not too much of a problem for me. Thanks for responding anyway ^^

It conflicts with the any vocalize addons because they both modify the radial menus file. The advanced version includes radial menus to easily change certain game settings and allow you to control the bots with a few commands.

It conflicts with menu addons because I had to create a custom single player menu, as part of the game's main menu. This is because certain features in the advanced version can only work on what is called a listen server, which the game does not allow you to play on through the normal menus.

Usually you can only start a listen server by starting a game through the developer's console, but I was able to make a menu that automatically enters the correct developer console commands for you. The downside to this is that you cannot select your character or difficulty, which is why I added the radial menus that allow you to change those settings in-game.

This one interferes with the VXL Vocalize mod and the Urik Game Menu with Rayman's Mutation Mod for some reason, but the General Improvements (Simple) doesn't. Any idea why it would interfere? (I'm guessing the key bindings)

''Reduced fall damame and increased distance to recieve fall damage to more realistic''
If you jumped from a table and you would already feel pain in your feet ¬ ¬

It may be something on my end, but when I press seven to swap out my melee, it does not work. Though it does work when I scroll my mouse, though I'd much rather hit seven.
