Fixed model for the 9mm ammo pile (was using incorrect one)

Automated Server Restarts

By default, unless the server renter makes it shorter, all servers will restart every 12 hours.

These commands are optional, but can be added to your hosting.cfg file:

schedule_shutdown_utc=HOUR
Where HOUR is a numeric value from 0.0 to 24.0. Ex. 3.0 is 3AM UTC, 14.5 is 2:30PM UTC

So, schedule_shutdown_utc 3.5 will cause the server to restart at 3:30AM UTC every day.

You can add multiple schedule_shutdown_utc commands to the hosting.cfg file. The following would cause the server to restart four times each day:
schedule_shutdown_utc=0.0 (Midnight)
schedule_shutdown_utc=6.0 (6AM)
schedule_shutdown_utc=12.0 (Noon)
schedule_shutdown_utc=18.0 (6PM)

sv_maxuptime=HOURS
HOURS is the maximum running time before a restart, from 0.5 to 12.0

Instead of scheduling precise restarts you can use this to have the server restart every HOURS instead. The HOURS specified is randomized by up to 60 minutes to prevent all servers restarting at the same time by default.

The following would cause the server to restart approximately every 6 hours:
sv_maxuptime=6.0

In addition to the above two commands, you can also execute the following command via rcon to have the server restart itself on demand:

do_shutdown SECONDS
Where SECONDS is the number of seconds before shutdown, from 45 to 600
The following would cause the server to restart in 120 seconds:
do_shutdown 120

When the above commands are used the server will automatically send out warning messages to all players before the server is restarted. A server message will be sent out at eachof the following times before a scheduled restart:
10 minutes, 5 minutes, 3 minutes, 1 minute, 45 seconds, 30 seconds, 15 seconds

Note that do_shutdown could be short enough that not all of them would have time to be sent.
