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.

Several people have told me similar stories in the past, but I have no idea why that happens for some people. I've never experienced that myself. There's nothing I can do about it though. It would have to be something to do with the way Valve enables and disables addons.

So I think it glitched for me, I hosted a local server and at first friends couldnt join. But after I went back to addons and unchecked "general improvements" they were able to join. But the script files were still there and we still had all the features of this mod - extra slot for melee weapon, not slowed by attacking zombies, etc.

I don't think so, but I've never tried it.

Does this work if you invite friends to a local host game?

Hey, just wanted to say that im a huge fan of this mod and would like to take the time to stop and thank you. Keep up the good work.

Players not slowed by getting hit?
Good, 1 common infected can't prevent all movement anymore.

Chainsaws have unlimited fuel?
Total win.

can you make this mod without any changes on guns (ammo, dmg,...)?

I just recently downloaded this mod, before I only had the improved bots, saw this and jumped for it, nice that it has the other mod too. [But i'm having an issue] my bots aren't responding to infected, they help eachother and pick supplies up, but they won't shoot or attack anything. Help?

@Ziggy Thanks a lot man, i need that a lot, i love this mod a lot but i really need the melee weapon too, i followed you btw keep up the great work

You can do that as well. Just open up the developer's console (enable it in the options menu if you need to) and use this command:

bind "x" "slot7"

Change x to whatever key you want to use.
