There should be different flags instead of just the American flag. The thought just came to me while playing on a custom map, kept wondering why there was an American flag in one building but no russian flag on the other side, then I checked map editor and I got my answer a shortage on flags.

Make C4 weld with the first object it collides with.
Right now C4 is just a single grenade that needs to be triggered in order to explode. On it's own it's kind of boring. I think it's necessary to give it some more unique properties from the other explosives to mix up the gameplay.
it would also be interesting to see C4 sticking on to players, could be a fun mechanic.

Sticking onto players sounds a little OP, but I am all for more diversity in SFD.

A / command to change the map pool. Like /maps officials would change the map pool to official maps. I often play in a server with my friends where am a mod but not the host where the host is often afk. I usually have to type in an id one at a time if I want to change maps. Adding this command would make this a lot easier.

Edit: oh, thanks

Being able to press up and down in chat to scroll through your previous messages/commands. It's really convenient because you can quickly fix a typo or use a command more than once. (I know a few multiplayer games that have it).

For example, setting teams through chat takes a lot of effort and usually ends up with the wrong results. With this little feature, you can quickly press up, fix the mistake using backspace and hit enter.

I know you can just copy and paste your messages/commands, but this does not apply when you misspell something.

Reloading an empty magazine should take longer compared to a magazine that still has bullets in it.

In real life (and in games that try to resemble real life even in the slightest) the bolt catch holds the bolt back once you run out of ammo and you have to manipulate the release lever after you've inserted the (new) mag if you want to continue firing. Reloading takes significantly longer that way; usually if you want to keep your fire-rate up you'll keep a round in the chamber and switch the mags that way.

SFD should count that as 1 round or shell left:
Image

SFD properly simulates the way weapon magazines work - in the sense that you lose all remaining ammunition if you switch to a new magazine without fully expending the ammunition in the first - unlike games with an ammo "pool" like Call of Duty, in which firing one round and reloading means you only lost one bullet instead of a whole magazine's worth of them. Due to this fact I feel the small change should be simulated as well.

What this means is reloading halfway through a mag can be a worthwhile decision instead of (mostly) a mistake; losing some ammo might be worthwhile if you wish to resume shooting more quickly, as opposed to trying to squeeze the last juices out of your magazines, miscalculating the length of the engagement and having your weapon be inoperable for a longer period of time. It's another layer of decision-making in a game already chock-full of decisions to make.

Perhaps the devs have neglected to introduce this feature so that reloading weapons can't be "optimized" further, or maybe because adding a locked-bolt sprite/animation to each weapon is too much of a hassle, but if this has never been considered prior to this I'd like it to be at least once. If we introduce a "penalty" to expending all the ammunition in a single magazine perhaps accidentally pressing 'R' halfway through it won't be so bad after all.

TL;DR - If you fully finish a magazine, add a few miliseconds to the reload animation. This should simulate what you would otherwise do in real life - send the bolt flying forward after it was locked to the rear so that you can resume firing properly. The current reload speed should be kept for when you reload midway through a magazine (old round still chambered so the new magazine feeds rounds into the weapon as if it is the old one).

Turning off weapon/item spawn

There should be a setting, for every server host, to stop items/weapons from spawning (or falling from the sky like they do, in those little crates).

I know this can be done with the map editor, but it would be nice to have the option to deactivate them for all maps.

I’d like to host a game or two (in different maps) where everyone spawns with set items, without having to worry about someone pulling out an unwanted weapon.

I hope this isn’t too much to ask for :)

Saving Frankie on the first level of Zombie Nightmare should give the player a buff, i.e. Frankie as an AI fighter on your side or rewarding the player with an extra life. This could also function as an achievement for the Steam version.

I read it man, but it said something about removing tiles where weapons spawn, that sounds like map editor stuff to me.
i just uploaded a tiny script that does it, it was basically what was written in the comment, executed at startup.

create a way to actually ban toxic players from the game permanently or temporarily, either through their ip or account.

You can ban players by IP or account from a server using the /ban command. Type /help in game for more info. If you're hosting the server software you can right click on any chat entry and select kick or ban.

That's exactly why @Powerbombs put an emphasis on the word "game" - they want to ban the person from all the servers, not just one. I personally feel it's a ridiculous amount of power to give to private server hosts and even if it was only given to people who hold special roles in the community (like the devs) I doubt anything could justify handing out such a punishment to your players. Still, that's the suggestion in a nutshell; it's not like other games didn't do it before.

Banning some player permanently from the game as a private host from all the servers in SFD is not a good idea at all. Someone could just start a troll server and automatically ban anyone joining it - preventing these players from ever accessing a server again preventing them from playing SFD. This sort of ban feature works in other games where the developers have full control over the experience with official servers, server hardware, hired staff, the capacity to implement reporting features for the players and implementing tools to ban players permanently. SFD does not have official servers at all, only private hosted servers.

This is just impossible for the two of us, working on this game in our spare time with no budget for it. A permanent ban feature will never happen for SFD. Some hosts even ban simply because they got killed which I think is poor sportsmanship and that should never result in you being permanently banned from SFD.

i was talking about like a way to report them and then have the person reviewing the report ban them (sorry for not clarifying), which would probably be a mod or admin, possibly through a forum report or an in-game report system. this system is very effective in games i know of and have played before. server hosts should definitely not be given the power to ban someone from the game, only from their server. one ban and you're done, y'know?

Considering sfd's community and it's technical staff, I don't think reporting mechanic would do well either. The mods would have fun time reviewing reports like "this noob 2v1" or "hardscoper" lmao

even if the reports look legitimate, there is no way for the devs to track it or know what really happened because these aren't official servers which are under their record. in conclusion, neither sfd's servers are suitable for a report system nor is it's dev team big enough to handle it.

I don't think not being able to take care of would be the case here, particularly. If I had to put it in a way, it's like the game is very independent. You don't have to report someone for behaving badly or hacking to the game, but to the server you're in instead. You're not gaining anything when you're playing this, and ranking system doesn't seem to be coming soon, we're all playing just for fun. You can either just move to another server or kick/ban the individual lel. You have a reason to actually report or ban someone from an tourney, like an official one if it even happens someday, but besides this, I don't agree with this suggestion.
