  • latejoin, upgrades, and bots... oh my....

    latejoin works with 3.0 now. No news there.

    Extra levels works with 3.0 now. No news there.

    Bots are upgraded. They're more challenging. Check 'em out.. very fun.

    Also, two commands have been added to the server:

    1. points spend extraupgrades (available to all players; points cost: 1500)
    2. amx_extraupgrades (available to supporting members only)

    They both do the same thing: they blow CO into stupid land. If this is just majoritively hated, I'll remove it. Otherwise, it can make CO, especially with bots, that much more exciting if you're willing to abandon all serious concern for the competitive gameplay (as I am). Taking value from this really does require that you look at CO as nothing more than a way to pull regulars in for NS.

    When these commands are used, the following changes occur:

    * players can type 'menu' in chat to research additional, custom CO upgrades. These are the same upgrades you've seen on other servers. They're just silly.

    * mp_combattime is set to 30 minutes (competition goes out the window)

    * CO's max upgrade level becomes 50 (so you can play with the custom upgrades)

    Some things to consider:

    * if you're using points to enable this, don't forget about votemap, as you guys may find yourselves wanting to start playing NS before the extended CO timer expires.

    * if you're a supporting member and enable this, don't forget about your ability to change maps, as you guys may find yourselves wanting to start playing NS before the extended CO timer expires.

      For the first time, I've seen people WANT CO. The server had about 13-15 people in it and it switched to NS. Suddenly everyone wants to go back to CO, so we did. That being said with extra upgrades aliens totaly pwnz0r marines.

        I realize I'm going against everyone else here, but I don't like the extra upgrades. I always saw CO as a training ground for NS, and with the new upgrades, it's impossible for that.Not to mention that the upgrades are horribly unbalanced in favor of aliens. Also, we had 16 people today, went to NS, and everybody wanted to go back to CO?! Wtf?! But who knows, maybe I'll like it better tommorrow..

          If you're going to put in extra upgrades, at least make them openly available. Combat may be brainless but imbalance created by differing availability can still make it a whole lot less fun.

              Enigma, you may not be in the minority you think you are. I knew when I turned these on that people might not be crazy about them. Continue to provide feedback.

              Zek, someone (points user or supporting member) enabling bots does so for all players on the server. Yes, only one person enables bots, but everyone experiences them. These upgrades are enabled in the same fashion. The person enabling them enables them to be used by any player on the server, just as bots are either "on" the server or not. The upgrades are never accessible by only certain players. Once they're enabled, they're accessible to all players.

                  I think that marines need something to compensate for the new extra levels.... An onos with infinite charge+stop (lvl5 bloodlust) and fades with lvl5 hunger are just unstoppable. Maybe marines should get an extra level right off the bat when extralevels are turned on.

                  Btw, marines with lvl5 static/lvl3 SG/ and cat pack can still rip through aliens, but they usualy dont get the points before they start getting spawn camped in MS.

                    This was fun, at first. It's kinda neat to see something new. I'd say having enough for NS and doing CO instead should be a one time thing. There's still about as much method to the madness as always; CO still sucks. Give this new plugin a week or two and people will be back to begging for classic.

                      I agree with HairyNevus, its fun to play around with it, but after some time, Classic is just a way better way to experience Natural Selection.

                        I enjoy it even though it can get old, but thats the nice thing, it dosent always have to be turned on.

                          Gee... I wonder who suggested making it a points/member toggle. What a smart and clever guy he is. *whistes* :-p

                            I see these new upgrades like the new toys you get at Christmas as a kid. You open the presents up on Christmas morning and play with them constantly for a few weeks. Then they sit at the bottom of the toybox for the rest of the year only to come into use again when Mom insists that she doesn't want to buy you new toys because you don't play with the ones you have...
                            well hopefully that's what will happen to co soon, back into the toybox.
