Enable reloading with larger clips?

    I want to enable reloading. This is what I'm thinking:

    Rifles will get 250 round clips
    the m249 will get a 500 rounds
    Pistols will get 35 rounds
    You will be able to buy 3 grenades
    Shotguns will have no reloading.
    SMG's will get 250 round clips also.

    What do you think? In my honest opinion it'll make everything a lot funner and add a tactical element to gameplay.

    Sounds like a great idea, but I would suggest one adjustment:

    Pistols get ~50 rounds each.

    Since the Five-seven already gets 20 rounds and the dual elites already gets 30 rounds, bumping the amount of rounds wouldn't be much of an increase for these pistols. I think 50 rounds per clip would be fair.

    Otherwise, I say go for it!

    Well, when the server went down and the unlimited ammo was off, people started complaining about having to reload. Having a poll for it on the forums is a nice idea, but the majority of the people who play on the server rarely come to the forum.

    With that said, reload gets a vote for no from me.

    pistols 50
    deagle 10 :razz: hahahaha
    i think that would be good cam

    and i mostly use shotguns anyway so UNLIMITED shot gun for the most part awesome.

    Every time we disable unlimited ammo for whatever reason we always get the majority of the players bitching their asses off about it. Occasionally we will see players joining with comments such as "Yes! Finally a ZM server with unlimited ammo"

    I vote no in the long run, but go ahead and try it.

    I would have to say no to reloading.

    I dont think any of them should go above 100. Im dead serious, it would make the game more challenging and balance it out some more

    we need reloads!

    Ur right i would perfer not unlimited but in the long run its just going to come back and bite us in the ass because most of the kiddies like unlimited ammo along with "N00bz" and occasionally I do :razz:
    But my main point is all this is going to do is make zm challenging (which is what it was intended to be in the first place), less lag, And we could open lots of options like now you can vent camp if unlimited ammo is disabled (it makes sence to me to let it happen but then again but its ultimately up to you guys) And last but not least increase slots on Plaguefest to 54??? (its up to cam :razz: )

    But from all the ups and the downs we loose our main population but gain people that dont like unlimited.

    I'm a Yes.

    My opinion below on the clip sizes

    Rifles will Be disabled
    the m249 will get a 250 rounds
    Pistols will get 50 rounds (deagle 20)
    You will be able to buy 3 grenades
    Pump Shotguns will have 25 rounds. (autos - 15)
    SMG's will get 100 round clips also.
    Snipers disabled

    I don't think the idea behind reloading would be all that popular considering the feedback i've seen when we have reloading in the server.... Stupid comments such as:
    "Why is there reload? Lol fag noob omg!"
    "What the hell?! Admin my gun has no ammo!!! FAG NOOB LOL ROFL"

    People will riot.... And the zombie economy will go hungry as players will end up killing each other for ammunition.

    yea brehtren has been in when i have disabled unlimited ammo with reload. People cant stand it.
  13. Apr 9, 2007
    I highly doubt everyone said fag noob.. but i see the point ur getting at.
  14. Mar 24, 2007
    Well, I say try it, with cam's settings and see what happens, make it so that if u turn on reloads it will be what cam said, and if they whine, then turn it off thats all. I say TRY IT!

    I just read this post, and I went inside the bathroom..and I was brushing my teeth. But while I was brushing my teeth, I was thinking.."You know, maybe this wouldn't be such a bad idea! I mean, it may make it a hell of a lot more challenging." But then I started thinking about how long it would take to kill a zombie. And the speed of which the zombie is moving. So once your running from a zombie, if you have to run and reload. If theres no way to slow him down, there's just no way you're going to survive. You wouldnt be able to outrun the zombie. But what if you were to change the health of the zombie. What's the current health of every type of zombie?
  16. Feb 3, 2007
    Thats a very good idea... If we implement reload bring the zombies overall health down so its more balanced. Because with reload and super hyper strong and fast zombies its very very very challenging and lots of players dont enjoy very very challenging. I do but most people dont. I mean overall i like the idea.

    2 Options:

    Keep the unlimited ammo and the zombies as it is with their super high level health which everybody loves! #1

    Reload implemented with more than normal rounds so its ballanced + weaker zombies! #2

    Myself, I like reloading, I think it adds a whole new level to the gameplay, all of a sudden people will be picking their shots, none of this spraying and praying stuff. There are some really good players on the zm server and I'd like to see more people working together as a team, which I think reload does. That's my thought on the matter.
  18. Jul 7, 2007
    I agree, voted yes, but I suggest one thing: A reload on the auto-shotties. Unlimited on the auto shottie can still be pretty gay. :/
  19. Mar 17, 2007
    Yes this would be a wonderful change. And of higher difficulty to da server too. I mean just anybody can vent camp or barricade camp with unlimited ammo and just spray away. BTW if im too late to reply towards this plz reconsider getting da reloading up.

    I thought about this some more...

    If we enable reloading, it will be done slowly. How?

    I will add a question vote asking whether or not to enable reloading. If Yes wins, reloading will get enabled for a couple of rounds...

    Just another thought.

    Keep in mind you'll still have unlimited ammo, just have to reload every 200 rounds or so.
