Raise the spawn limit

Please could you consider raising the time limit at the beginning of a round slight, maybe 10 seconds...

The current round time is 330 seconds, that is, 5:30. So you have roughly 30 seconds to pick your gear :)

I'm pretty certain the time window for spawning is hard-coded, that is always 30 seconds, regardless of the round length. So nothing we can do about it.

It's a shame though, think 40 or 50 s would've been better, as with the class limits you lose a lot of time for equipment selection. Same with map downloads. Oh well. If it's hardcoded then it's probably hardcoded in client as well as server for client side prediction, meaning it's not enough to reverse engineer and edit server executable. Maybe one could ask TW nicely to get it as a server option?

Ignore the fact my Steam profile is an email address - I haven't used the address for years.
