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.

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.

I love this addon, but for some reason after a few days of use, the seperate Melee, and Pistols doesnt work. Also the bots became stupid again, like tossing themselves off a roof (in No Mercy) It is not Highlighted in Red on my Addons folder. What should I do?

Here is a link to the work I have done with your mod as inspiration http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=390662396

So i was able to reistate the full orginal ui with the left for dead 1 missions included (though not in the right order, they are all after lfd2 missions). made the zombies a little slower (more like walking dead speed) and a lot tougher so they don't go down with one shot unless its to the head or very close shotgun blast. Unfortunately the being able to have melee pistol and heavy weapon is not working anymore. still would love some help with the ai tweaking

Liking this mod a lot -- tweaked a few things like removing the glow from survivors and long distance item glow for single player too for added realism. Also added cvar to allow all survivors to use mele weapons. Now What I would like to do is tweak the ai to use melee weapons over firearms to kinda improve a stealth like aspect of the game kinda like walking dead show rule: don't use fire arms unless you absolutely have to. And from previous requests I see that there is no way you can re introduce player select,campaign select, level select, and difficulty ui's? There has to be a way. ( yes i already know there's a level select ui and the f2 key but that enables cheating and disables achievements). Also looking to introduce some elements from the Romero mod. If you want to pair up and make this mod even more awesome lemme know
