Some improvement ideas

    This was thebest ZM server but it needs substantial improvements. In my opinion, unlimited ammo is great but it does cause a lot of lag. Something you guys could do is maybe keep unlimted ammo, but enable reloading. That would allow for more balanced gameplay because when non-zombies go in man-formation in a tight spot, you can bet your ass that the zombies will not get them. Lag and traitor cts could ruin it , but if all goes smooth, the humans are going to win because of unlimted ammo.

    Another problem to many is the lag. Im not exactly sure what causes the lag stutters, but it is annoying. Ive played with the max pop in the server many times and sometimes it runs smooth. Then there are times when the round is over and everyone respawns, you get stuck in lag space. Where you basically sit there for 10-30 secs , which then causes the zombie to spawn already and pwn those at spawn. What could be done is to lower the 300ping limit to 200 , preferably 150ms. I believe that would help a lot.

    Little kids and Mic spammers
    I know many of us have played hours with little kids ( Wink Dink, elite commando etc) that seem to think we want to talk to them . They love to spam the mics and talk about outrageous stuff , which is quite annoying. An idea that came to mind was a Mute admin. Essentially, this admin only has the power to mute players. The admin has to be an active player but also posses good judgement. Im not sure if that is possible but if it is, it would help a lot of players
    enjoy the server more. The mute admin could lay the smack down on mic spammers and annoying youngins.

    I retract all positive things I have said about the admins.
    - Zombification time is too fast, add 5-10 secs
    - Need more variety on the maps
    Thanks for reading.

    No mention of me? I'm disappointed in you Weeo... Do I need to put you back in the cage?

    But on a serious note... The unlimited ammo with no reload seems fine so far. The only time it causes humans to be untouchable is when they are vent camping, and they get moved out of vents if they do that. Cam has been working to fix the lag we have been seeing lately, so that's only a matter of time.

    As for the little kids with mics, I usually warn them to not spam, and if it continues I mute them for it. Retslag also needs to get a bit tougher on the punishment though. He's too much of a softy. :razz:

    Ya, reaper mentioned fixing the lag. Cam implemented his fix, only to find out that soda machines, couches, etc were almost impossible to move by shooting them. So he reversed it for the time being.

    Otherwise...thanks for posting your opinions, I'll take those (about me :razz:) into consideration. I just don't want to become the zombie soup nazi

    I only wish more people would post useful suggestions like this, rather than bitch constantly on the server.

    And for reaper...i know you like the softy.

    Fantastic remarks, though i dont think there is such a thing as a mute admin. Unless of course the admin is deaf lol..

    About the ammo thing, maybe you could change reload/rate of fire/ .etc with the amount of humans or people nearby. That way, if you're stuck alone, you still stand a chance, and huge groups aren't too powerful.

    Anyways adding the reloading is a bit ridiculous because its a "unlimited ammo" server not a limited clip but unlimited magazine. However that was a clever idea and i do give u props for it. The mute feature i love for various reasons and i do agree that "The Youngsters" should not be talking on there mic or spamming for that matter. Anyways hope my input helps.

    I agree totally and yes id like to say PF admins rock they FREAKING PLAY THE GAME not just oh yea i am a admin.
