    Could this be tweeked to set down pre-placed statics automatically?
    (like how you do it with admin menu manually with the modelfun plugin?)

    The idea doesn't sound so far off.

    Indeed, I was wondering if it was possible for maps to have a chance to place dynamic props, so you could have a 50% chance of forcing players to take different variable paths in l4d1 or 2.

    This could probably be done with Stripper Source, a script file to generate the configuration files, and a cronjob periodically calling that script.

    Nice plugin, I was looking for this. One question though probably a noob question but what means:

    "Start" "10;15"

    What are the 10 and 15 for?

    The other one:

    "first_aid_kit" "90;1"

    Does that mean there's a 90% chance first aid kit spawns but not in saferoom? If I change this to 0 they spawn in the saferoom.

    A little bit more explanation for the noobs like me would be welcome

    Also, can you spawn weapons with this plugin like M16, AK47 etc? Would be nice for maps like c1m1_hotel where you only have an axe or a pistol or is there another way to do this?

    Thanks!

    Yes, but 9% chance
    Sample:
    1000 = 100% = maximum 1 item
    500 + 500 = 50% + 50% = maximum 2 items
    500 + 250 + 250 = 50% + 25% + 25% = maximum 3 items
    etc

    Works perfectly, thanks! One more question, do you maybe have an item list of things you can spawn?

    I was trying to spawn weapons like the autoshutgun and shotgun_spas and they did spawn but they only had 10 bullets of ammo, no backup ammo.

    Any idea?

    Thanks again for the mod! Some maps were far too simple for infected because of the lack of good starting items.
