    Purpose:
    - Prevents server lags / low sv, when map/director decides to spawn too many zombies.
    Description:
    - Plugin instantly kills common zombies / special infected when their total number exceeds the limit specified by you.

    Useful in cases with some (custom) maps where ConVars like "z_common_limit" e.t.c. doesn't help / or get overridden by some functions like this one / VScripts and so.
    Conflicts:
    This plugin does NOT affect any game ConVars, so it must be compatible with any other common/SI limits regulator plugins.

    It counts the quantity manually and manually kills the leftovers over the limit.
    Settings (ConVars):
    Located at cfg/sourcemod/l4d_zombie_limits.cfg
    PHP Code:
    // Enable plugin (1 - On / 0 - Off)
    l4d_zombie_limits_enabled "1"

    // Maximum number of boomers allowed on the map simultaneously
    l4d_zombie_limits_boomer "7"

    // Maximum number of hunters allowed on the map simultaneously
    l4d_zombie_limits_hunter "7"

    // Maximum number of smokers allowed on the map simultaneously
    l4d_zombie_limits_smoker "7"

    // Maximum number of jockey allowed on the map simultaneously
    l4d_zombie_limits_jockey "7"

    // Maximum number of spitters allowed on the map simultaneously
    l4d_zombie_limits_spitter "7"

    // Maximum number of chargers allowed on the map simultaneously
    l4d_zombie_limits_charger "7"

    // Maximum number of tanks allowed on the map simultaneously
    l4d_zombie_limits_tank "10"

    // Maximum number of all special infected allowed on the map simultaneously (tank is not counting)
    l4d_zombie_limits_si "12"

    // Maximum number of common zombies allowed on the map simultaneously
    l4d_zombie_limits_common "40"

    // Maximum number of witches allowed on the map simultaneously
    l4d_zombie_limits_witch "10" 
    Commands:
    PHP Code:
    // Show the current number of each zombie type
    sm_zcount

    Is this mean spitter will die and leave her spit on the ground or just disappear, Dragokas?

    Looking at the code it runs RemoveEntity which I assume shouldn't drop any spit

    Also this plugin is exactly what I need for those crappy custom maps, thanks

    Die within 0.1 sec for safe purposes (and, likely leave her spit). Does it matter? Anyway, it is spawned in safe place.
    Otherwise, particles can infinitely cycle.

    Great job @Dragokas,

    Now I can play some custom maps that have entity/lag/fps problems caused by the number of commons being spawned.

    As a note, I remember that maps that spawn zombies/SI through [(info_zombie_spawn / commentary_zombie_spawner) + logic_timer] entities usually leads to that.
    (Rocket Escape and Helms Deep maps are such examples)

    Thanks Dragokas, this is what I need for any custom maps that spawn more than 2 tanks at the same time while using with infected bots plugin

    Edit: One question, is the cvar "l4d_zombie_limits_si" count tank?

    Updated.

    Quote:
    1.1 (02-May-2021)
    - some optimizations.
    - safe check for entity -1 in OnEntityDestroyed
    - added ConVar "l4d_zombie_limits_witch" - Maximum number of witches allowed on the map simultaneously
    For better witch number controlling experience it is recommended to use together with [L4D1 & L4D2] Multi witches, allowing to clear unused witched by distance.

    Updated.

    1.2 (02-May-2021)
    - Removed tank from counting as special infected, thus not affected by SI Limits.
