Is there is possibility to remove name tags above the survivors head when while being boomed with bile or even a cvar to remove the hud as well?

Why would you want to do this, nothing against your idea but I think it would just piss people off.

survivors that are boomed upon quickly search for their teammates by searching for their name tags on the screen. Removing the nametags on the screen when vomited on increases the intensity and the "oh shit" factor when boomed on. Hell, people probably would't even notice it was removed.

I increased the intensity of the "oh shit" factor (when boomed) by increasing these cvars:

z_mega_mob_size
z_common_limit 40

You don't need sv_cheats 1, just put this on your server.cfg file:

sm_cvar z_mega_mob_size 100
sm_cvar z_common_limit 60

It will work, trust me ;)

The server console shows that they execute in the server.cfg but when you check in the game console after starting a campaign while playing it only shows the default variables.

One of those commands seems to trigger 2 tanks every round. I wonder which one I need to lower. If 100 is too high or if 60 is too high.
