      Re: NS 3.1 to consties...

      The changelog looks AMAZING for anyone who hasn't seen it yet. Some stuff that gets me excited -
      - Hand grenades are now more useful (see Card's thread for that one)
      - Invoking a query from the popupmenu ("Follow me", "Covering you", "Weld/Heal me") displays an icon over the player issuing the query. This lasts for 6 seconds.
      - Shotgun pellets now spread randomly: five pellets in an outside 20 degree cone, and five pellets within a 7 degree cone (no more shotgun sniping for people with custom crosshairs!)
      - Armory now consistently supplies 10 health with every use (although I think it should be more like 20)
      - Added support for labelled minimaps (we can stop telling n00bs where every room is)
      - Mines and Hand Grenades moved to weapon slot 5 (easier to select)
      - All sayings from the popupmenu now have a cool down time of 3 seconds, to prevent them from being spammed. (this was more annoying than HLSS)
      - Players can now climb up ladders without having to face up or jump on to them (Yippee!)

      They've reworked some of the maps, but they haven't touched co_daimos and co_angst. I wish they would put those back to their 3.0b5 versions.

          I'm trying to get some momentum behind ns_shiva to see if I can get it in. No luck so far though.

                I just played a 1 hour long game of ns 3.1 and I have to say: it is epitome of multiplayer gaming perfection. Every addition and change is well implemented and polished. My favorite additions to the marine team (haven't really played aliens that much):

                Grenades- holy crap the grenades absolutely rule. There is no priming time, you just click the fire button and it throws instantly. They explode hella fast, as well.

                Armory- OMG THE ARMORY GIVES ME HEALTH GG

                Shotgun- it has a random arrangement, but very very little spread and no range restrictions, so if you put your crosshairs on a skulk 40 meters away there is a good chance you will hit it with at least a few pellets if not more. A level 3 shotgun is the awp of ns.

                Notification icons- quite helpful, especially the "weld me" icon

                I've also notice that the game runs a helluvalot smoother on my aging hardware. I'd say congrats to the devs making a near-perfect game even better.

                  Sounds good. :D

                  But, I thought they said the shotgun had the same spread. Maybe the ramdomness makes it have a probability to be more accurate?

                    Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.

                      Which is great, because, you know, we really need an AWP in NS! [/sarcasm]

                      I don't *think* it's the same spread, I think the cone from 3.0 was larger than 7 degrees. I want to say it was 10-20 as compared to 7-20.

                        Well the marines needed a boost didn't they? It only achieves awp-like status at lvl3 and even then it isn't so powerful that it makes decent 2 hive skulks or lerks useless.

                        Why don't you try it before you make judgments man.

                          I was on a 3.1 test server earlier, Saw Pfhor there too, then I think he left for chicken or something. But anyways, it had a definate different feeling to it, But it was good.

                          Skulk jumping off walls is nice.. but that was the only change to aliens I personally saw while playing.

                          The Marine notification icons are awesome.

                          Noticed at least for the Marines when Voicecomm was used, the bright yellow icon was replaced with a nice blue one.

                          I think it will be real nice when its released.

                          I was unable to play during a large game, which was disapointing, most of the time people just wanted to goof off in the server, so I couldn't see real action.

                          Anyhow, Might play it again before release, its just not fun without a server like TG. --Wyz, you should try getting, with Apophis' Permission of course, a TG Hosted test server.

                          That'd be teh l33t.

                            I always thought the pistol script was the awp of NS.

                            And I don't want to see any new maps until Agora gets back in. I can't believe they cut it last minute and crammed that eon crap in instead. /rant.
