AD CSS Weapon Balance Mod 1.28 Final Links: --------------------------------------------------------------------- The mod's Steam Thread: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=637472 Check end of Thread to see changes between mod versions and possible plans for next. The mod's Steam Group: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/ADCSS You can find me there if you want to chat. Introduction --------------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to ActionDragon's Counter-Strike: Source Weapon Balance Mod. Are you bored of USP, DEAGLE, MP5, AK47, M4, AWP matches? Want to use all the weapons? The goal of this mod is to try to make all weapons worth their cost, and to bring all weapons closer to each other in performance so they would remain useful. The changes are also meant to improve tactical teamplay - meaning that in close range maps shotguns should be used, and in long range maps snipers should be used at long range, not at point blank range. Different weapon choises should be made based on map as for example AUG > M4 at long range, but < at close to medium range. Also some realism is added like more realistic pistol firing rates, movement speeds with weapons, and weapons of same caliber doing almost the same damage. SMGs and shotguns are almost as good as assault rifles at close range. If you get an assault rifle, you pretty much get it only to be able to fight longer ranged battles too. The sniper rifles' damage is reduced too so a better equipped team doesn't instantly win if they can afford them and the opposition can not. To make the sniper rifles still good at long range battles the accuracy of assault rifles has been reduced. All of this should lead to a more fair gameplay where your skill and the support of your team mates is more important than the weapon you have. The weapon changes should also reduce the defending team's (camping) advantage. Pistols -> Pretty much remain the same, except the Desert Eagle which is brought more in line with the other pistols. SMGs-> More firepower, less movement speed. Mac10 and UMP45 are cost effective now. Shotguns -> More firepower at close range, but less than before at long range. Assault Rifles -> Accuracy has been reduced. The effectiveness of longe range AK headshotting is reduced. AUG and SG552 should also be worth their cost now as they're more accurate than the other assault rifles. Sniper Rifles -> -Firepower. No more should every member in a team be equipped with them as now the weapons need more skill to be used effectively. Machinegun -> More firepower and controllability with the cost of movement speed. The weapon can now be used as a fire support weapon. At the moment the mod is just edited weapon script files that are put to the scripts directory of a Source Dedicated Server. The mod is probably going to be turned into a plugin or a mod that shows as a different game, but that isn't going to happen until I find out how to do it. Any help would be appreciated. Running a server with the mod - Source Dedicated Server --------------------------------------------------------------------- Put the weapon script files to your server's "\cstrike\scripts" directory and start your server. Every client joining the game without the script files now uses the new weapon values from the script files except few things that don't affect gameplay much: - Clients don't get the changed weapon muzzle flash sizes. - Clients don't get the changed weapon crosshair sizes. - Clients still see the AUG's ammo type as 7.62mm. - Clients don't see the right amount of bullets that the XM1014 shoots (9 in this mod - like the M3). - Clients can start to reload the AWM even though it has full ammo (5 in this mod), causing the reload animation to start and then instantly stop. (To get all the changes, you need to join the game with the exact same script files installed) IF YOU'RE RUNNING THE NON-STEAM (HLDS) VERSION OF SRCDS, THEN YOU NEED TO DELETE THE WEAPON .CTX FILES FROM THE SCRIPTS DIRECTORY THAT HAVE OTHERWISE THE SAME NAME AS THESE .TXT FILES BEFORE STARTING YOUR SERVER. IF YOU WANT TO RESTORE THE OLD WEAPONS, THEN JUST RUN THE HLDS UPDATE AGAIN, AND DELETE THESE .TXT FILES. NOTE: It's recommended to use the included pure_server_whitelist.txt file and install it to your server's cstrike directory, and then to use sv_pure 1. This ensures no one can join the game with different scripts files in scripts directory and cause sync errors for them. So players without any weapon scripts files can join, as well as the ones with the exact same script files as the server installed to their game directory. How to install the mod and testing it without Source Dedicated Server --------------------------------------------------------------------- Unzip/Install all the weapon script files to "steamapps\(username)\counter-strike source\cstrike\scripts". Run Counter-Strike: Source as normal. If you run a server without Source Dedicated Server, everyone else joining the game must have the exact same script files installed too or sync errors happen - You also need to delete or move the weapon script files when you want to play default CSS. Hostname --------------------------------------------------------------------- It's recommended to name your game so that all know that this mod is running and the version of it. For example "AD Weapon Balance 1.28". How to uninstall or disable the mod --------------------------------------------------------------------- Delete or move the weapon script files from the scripts directory. Optional directory --------------------------------------------------------------------- The Optional directory contains pure_server_whitelist.txt that you can use with your server. More info about the file in "Running a server with the mod" NOTE field. The Optional directory also contains cstrike_english.txt that changes all weapon names to real ones, and fixes few things from the buy menus. The AWM magazine capacity is also changed to 5 like in this mod. Unzip the cstrike_english.txt to "steamapps\(username)\counter-strike source\cstrike\resource" to use it. Your Counter-Strike: Source language must be English to use this file. NEW: Now also the Finnish file is included. VAC --------------------------------------------------------------------- Mods like this shouldn't cause VAC alerts: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=637949 I use VAC with my server running this mod. NOTE --------------------------------------------------------------------- Anyone is free to modify and use this mod's files in their own CSS mods and servers, even without giving me any credit. Feel free to experiment and enjoy playing CSS. :) Weapon changes from default settings: ------------------------------------- * Can't see the change without script files installed to CSS directory Pistols ------------------------------------- Glock 18 ---------- Damage from 25 to 28 (+Damage) WeaponArmorRatio from 1.05 to 1.0 (-Armor penetration) CycleTime from 0.15 to 0.16 (-Firing rate) Range from 8192 to 4096 (-Range) RangeModifier from 0.75 to 0.81 (+Range, but the upper reduces it more) MaxPlayerSpeed from 250 to 240 (-Movement speed) USP45 ---------- CycleTime from 0.15 to 0.19 (-Firing rate) WeaponArmorRatio from 1.0 to 1.05 (+Armor penetration) MaxPlayerSpeed from 250 to 240 (-Movement speed) * MuzzleFlashScale from 1 to 1.1 (+Muzzle flash) P228 ---------- CycleTime from 0.15 to 0.17 (-Firing rate) MaxPlayerSpeed from 250 to 240 (-Movement speed) * MuzzleFlashScale from 1 to 1.1 (+Muzzle flash) Desert Eagle ---------- Damage from 54 to 50 (-Damage) WeaponArmorRatio from 1.5 to 1.35 (-Armor penetration) CycleTime from 0.225 to 0.3 (-Firing rate) MaxPlayerSpeed from 250 to 240 (-Movement speed) Five-seveN ---------- Damage from 25 to 27 (+Damage) WeaponArmorRatio from 1.5 to 1.4 (-Armor penetration) CycleTime from 0.15 to 0.16 (-Firing rate) RangeModifier from 0.885 to 0.85 (-Range) MaxPlayerSpeed from 250 to 240 (-Movement speed) * MuzzleFlashScale from 1 to 1.05 (+Muzzle flash) Elites ---------- Damage from 45 to 35 (-Damage) WeaponArmorRatio from 1.05 to 1.2 (+Armor penetration) CycleTime from 0.075 to 0.15 (-Firing rate) MaxPlayerSpeed from 250 to 240 (-Movement speed) * CrosshairMinDistance from 4 to 8 (+Crosshair size) * MuzzleFlashScale from 1 to 1.05 (+Muzzle flash) SMGs ------------------------------------- TMP ---------- Damage from 26 to 29 (+Damage) RangeModifier from 0.84 to 0.82 (-Range) MaxInaccuracy from 1.4 to 1.3 (+Controllability) MaxPlayerSpeed from 250 to 230 (-Movement speed) MP5 ---------- Damage from 26 to 29 (+Damage) MaxPlayerSpeed from 250 to 230 (-Movement speed) * MuzzleFlashScale from 1.1 to 1 (-Muzzle flash) Mac10 ---------- Damage from 29 to 34 (+Damage) WeaponArmorRatio from 0.95 to 1.05 (+Armor penetration) RangeModifier from 0.82 to 0.80 (-Range) MaxPlayerSpeed from 250 to 230 (-Movement speed) UMP45 ---------- Damage from 30 to 35 (+Damage) WeaponArmorRatio from 1.0 to 1.05 (+Armor penetration) MaxPlayerSpeed from 250 to 230 (-Movement speed) * MuzzleFlashScale from 1.15 to 1.1 (-Muzzle flash) P90 ---------- Damage from 26 to 27 (+Damage) WeaponArmorRatio from 1.5 to 1.4 (-Armor penetration) RangeModifier from 0.84 to 0.9 (+Range) CycleTime from 0.066 to 0.0665 (-Firing rate) MaxPlayerSpeed from 245 to 230 (-Movement speed) * CrosshairMinDistance from 7 to 6 (-Crosshair size) * MuzzleFlashScale from 1.2 to 1.05 (-Muzzle flash) Shotguns ------------------------------------- M3 ---------- Damage from 22 to 25 (+Damage) RangeModifier from 0.96 to 0.825 (-Range) MaxPlayerSpeed from 220 to 230 (+Movement speed) XM1014 ---------- * Bullets from 6 to 9 (+Bullets fired) Damage from 20 to 18 (-Damage, but more bullets = more damage) Range from 3048 to 3000 (-Range) RangeModifier from 0.96 to 0.825 (-Range) MaxPlayerSpeed from 240 to 230 (-Movement speed) Assault Rifles ------------------------------------- Galil ---------- AccuracyOffset from 0.35 to 0.45 (-Accuracy) WeaponArmorRatio from 1.55 to 1.4 (-Armor penetration) TimeToIdle from 1.28 to 1.5 (-Crosshair speed) CycleTime from 0.0875 to 0.09 (-Firing rate) MaxInaccuracy from 1.25 to 1.5 (-Controllability) MaxPlayerSpeed from 210 to 221 (+Movement speed) * MuzzleFlashScale from 1.6 to 1.4 (-Muzzle flash) Famas ---------- AccuracyOffset from 0.3 to 0.5 (-Accuracy) TimeToIdle from 1.1 to 1.3 (-Crosshair speed) MaxPlayerSpeed from 210 to 221 (+Movement speed) * MuzzleFlashScale from 1.3 to 1.4 (+Muzzle flash) AK47 ---------- Damage from 36 to 35 (-Damage) AccuracyOffset from 0.35 to 0.5 (-Accuracy) RangeModifier from 0.98 to 0.96 (-Range) MaxInaccuracy from 1.25 to 1.5 (-Controllability) CycleTime from 0.0955 to 0.1 (-Firing rate) * MuzzleFlashScale from 1.6 to 1.5 (-Muzzle flash) M4A1 ---------- Damage from 33 to 32 (-Damage) AccuracyOffset from 0.3 to 0.45 (-Accuracy) IdleInterval from 60 to 20 (-Crosshair speed) TimeToIdle from 1.6 to 1.2 (+Crosshair speed, but the upper reduces it more) MaxPlayerSpeed from 230 to 221 (-Movement speed) * MuzzleFlashScale from 1.6 to 1.5 (-Muzzle flash) AUG ---------- AccuracyOffset from 0.3 to 0.35 (-Accuracy) RangeModifier from 0.96 to 0.97 (+Range) TimeToIdle from 1.9 to 2 (-Crosshair speed) CycleTime from 0.0825 to 0.085 (-Firing rate) * CrosshairMinDistance from 3 to 4 (+Crosshair size) * MuzzleFlashScale from 1.3 to 1.4 (+Muzzle flash) * Changed ammo type to 5.56mm: -
