  • NS_Nexus beta 3 test available


    So, Nexus has finally come to beta3. Beta 2 was released on Nov 7, thread found here, so its been nearly two months until the next version. As i dislike releasing version after version, i try to get each as polished as i can.

    I'm releasing this 'beta 3 test' so that hopefully one or a few of you could provide any amount of feedback, or even an in-depth review like how some of us enjoy doing :p. Whatever the feedback is, it will absolutely be considered before ns_nexus_b3 is released all over. And by all over, i mean the 8 or so server forums I have bookmarked :P. I will also be putting this version through the channels to be considered for official.

    The main drawback of this test is the minimap. The beta 2 minimap had everything labelled and coloured; there have been a few significant changes to the minimap, and I havn't been able to get it updated yet (still gotta learn photoshop...).

    But, I included a basic buildminimap file, so you'll still have the basic minimap. Everything else should be near-b3 release. I might darken the pulsating Nexus Mainframe light a bit, but that will be determined after a bit of testing.

    So if anyone will, please, check it out :D

    Thank you very much in advance,


    ...and please keep posts relevant
