No tank slowdown, no hunter m2 and no weapon limit other than that I cant think of anything else. Maybe the holdouts acemod has but i wouldn't care either way.


EDIT: No wallkicks would be ideal but id be fine with it kept the way it is right now.

I'd love to see jumprocks, tank slowdown, water slowdown, and weapon limits removed. Aside from that, i love the config and would love to see future tournies hosted on it. I'd also like to see the four pills on finales only reinstated.

Also, can we please have bunnyhops enabled for the survivors?

EDIT: Remove deadstops and do the acemod m2 angles nerf (if not already applied)

I like reflux as it is, the core principle of not having spitters makes for more fun gameplay. The reason why tank slowdown was removed in acemod was because the uzi got buffed. Please don't remove tank slowdown / m2. It will makes tanks too strong, and uzi will need a buff again...

Remove weapons limit.
Fix the bug where when a car hits another car they just spazz out of the map. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/131455746?t=13m52s

Guys if you want no m2s on hunter, reduced m2 FOV, no tank slowdown, and holdouts without the OP uzi... I believe Zonemod by Sir is what you are looking for.

Zonemod without spitters best config?

This is wrong, EQ had no slowdown b4 any gun buffs and acemod is a spinoff config.  The uzi buffs and tank slowdown in acemod are separate balance changes.

Uzi pre-buff is much stronger than you'd think, and you will generally take a lot less damage pre and post tank fight in Reflux assuming you're playing with good players.  Only the reload buff is a really major change for killing tanks and I'm certain it still does substantially more dps than either shotgun on tank before the reload buff.

I'm not for or against tank slowdown either way though.

not really a huge fan of the random prop changes on zonemod, particularly on Parish 2 and rocks stopping pickups.

Hi Jacob. Things sure haven't been the same without you. I think you saved L4D2 when you steered promod away from what i believe was Blade catering the game towards certain teams and later hacking demonstrating his lack of care for the community.

You constantly updated the config for the good of us. While I may not have always agreed with every single update I was still grateful that someone was there to address our concerns if we had any.

I know this isn't about promod but something that has always helped me through dealing with haters is this.
Don't ever feel guilty for having "bad" or "immoral" thoughts. It's just the creative part of your brain considering every possibility.

REMOVE GODFRAMES, THERES 0 POINT IN GODFRAMES IN REFLUX. If smoked and rocked bitch you eat that.

Add some the QOL fixes zonemod has.

Fixed Players being able to exploit switching team to get earlier SI Spawns.
Fixed Players being unable to Punch/Jump when they get Tank right after dying as SI.
Fixed Players being able to FF eachother with the Shotgun when they're in too close-range.
Seeing as this was introduced without notice, I considered this a bug and resolved it.
Fixed Players being able to Pause/Ready-up by switching to Spec and spamming Pause at the same time.
Fixed Players being able to Pause after the round had ended.
Fixed Weapon Changes (Spread, Clipsize, etc) sticking after Config unload.
Fixed Slow Doors from within the Config (TickrateFixes.smx)
Fixed Players taking Friendly Fire when capped.

Tanks

Tank Rocks will no longer get stuck on Common Infected, they will now successfully pass through them (still killing them).
Tank Rocks will no longer get stuck on Incapped Survivors, they will pass through them unless the same Rock incapped them.

Smoker

Survivors are now pulled through common infected. (Video)
Godframes have been Removed.

Water Slowdown is back, but only outside of Tank Fights.

Friendly Fire Godframes have been added and set to 0.2 seconds.(No SI godframe doe)

!voteboss and !slots capability


Remove weapon limits.

(I suppose a lot of these are these are all changes that we can take from sir and use, please good sir <3)

THINGS I THINK OF ON THE GO:

Parish 1 should be at least 400 points, no map should be less than 400 points. IMO. Yes there is an argument that "If you get wiped and the other team makes it GG, 1k point difference" but that on every other map like swamp and HR. But nowadays you can clearly beat a team on parish and have 90 point difference.


Quadcaps should be consistent if a boomer dies last. I'm not sure if this was fixed or included.

Does reflux have static spread on shotgun and such?

Remove the lagged animation completely to make it more like l4d1. I want to know where the tanks looking at all times and where the survivor is looking at all times, not fucking 180 deagle skeets when the mother fucker isn't looking at me. This might make curve rocks impossible but who the fuck cares, that shit wasn't in l4d1.

I mean hunter pouncing and animations and tank animations are a lot nicer in l4d1. But I don't think a config is going to be able to change that.

Last time I spoke with jacob about it he said there was a sm command for it he just never did it because it would take away curve rocks. Which I feel curve rocks are yes skill based but also a glitch imo. But definitely for a l4d1 config we shouldn't have at all.

I don't think reflux should strive or just try to be l4d1 in l4d2. I think reflux should be it's own config. As good as it can be in its own right. The pluses of reflux or what makes it fun to me are

-No cancer spitter gameplay
-Quadcaps
-Double hunters


Give us an ETA Jacob™

Kind of random but the way damage bonus is implemented in acemod / zonemod could use some work. Survivors can limp their way to the saferoom with barely any temp health left and still get 200-300 bonus. Repeatetly incapping survivors with low hp isn't enough to bring damage bonus down because.. well... they have low hp, and you can't do enough damage before they get incapped. It's a fairly common source of "wtf" moments when the bonus score comes up.

best example. death toll 4. survivors can be at all temp health after tank then camp out event at bus then move to store and hold out and limp to saferoom w/ 1hp each and still get north of 400 hb
