  • New Announcement: "News Re: B6"

    Well, the time is finally upon us, time to deliver some news about B6 that contains actual content from the build.

    While many balance issues are still being worked on, here are 4 changes that we are excited to be bringing to the Natural Selection fan-base.

    O 2 seperate and different sprites for parasited buildings and players.
    O _special removed regardless of settings
    O Knife knockback has been removed
    O Marines in Sensory Chamber range show up on scent of fear ( even if the alien doesn't have the Scent of Fear upgrade )

    As stated above, there are many other large scale changes that are still being worked on and balanced. As these items are finalized, I'll be sharing them with you.
    Finally a little news on the next massively oversized patch. Nothing major here, but they're all good fixes and it's nice that the entire changelog isn't one big question mark anymore.

      I wonder what _special is.

        "_special" goes back to TFC days, and it's a horrible, horrible hack that I've never mastered. :P

          _special is a nasty script exploit that was only blocked with mp_blockscripts before.

                Won't need the marine parasite enhancer now looks like. I'll probably replace the new one with a copy of the SOF one anyway. I'm also going to go out on a limb and guess they're fixing the fade crouch hitboxes? Good.

                  Actually special isn't blocked by blockscripts, that's the irony in it. B6 is very interesting though, we're still trying to balance it out.

                    Tell them that if they didn't insist on making groundbreaking patches with 500 changelog entries every single time, they wouldn't have to spend months just trying to get a semblance of balance

                      I don't make the changes, I just bitch about them until Grendel harangues me into shutting up.
