  • Server updated to 3.0.4 (no client update required)

    We're pleased to announce the release of Natural Selection v3.0.4. As with NS 3.0.3 and the other previous server-side updates, this patch only needs to be downloaded by server admins. If you don't run a server, you don't need to update. This patch includes all previous NS v3.0.x changes as well.

    The NS v3.0.4 changelog is as follows:
    - Increased alien upgrade gestation time from two to three seconds.
    - Doubled the marine's Light MachineGun starting reserve ammo to 100. (Classic only)
    - Doubled the marine's Pistol starting reserve ammo to 20. (Classic only)
    - Reduced time to research the advanced armory from 180 to 160 seconds.
    - Increased HeavyArmor research time from 100 to 110 seconds.
    - Increased Jetpack research time from 50 to 60 seconds.
    - Increased siege damage from 380 to 400.

          I think this will be excellent. Not only will this reduce the res required to drop ammo in the early game, but it will *hopefully* convince people that they don't need to run to the armory after every respawn.

            This update looks great, now i can just run off and kill things, i always run out if i just leave, and die if i get more then 100, so i will be all set. :)



            Side note

                I think this is a dumbing down of the game. Now it's an easier choice to go without an armory early on. Why not just give the marines unlimited ammo? :icon_roll

                3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

                  It's not about the armory.

                  The dev team is trying to balance the field, not marine spawn.

                  This raises the odds that aliens will die in the field. It raises these odds ever so slightly, which is the amount by which you change things when you're searching for balance among and between sooooo many variables.

                    No armory strat ftw. Judging by how the majority of games proceed, you need to have either weapon/armor upgrades going, or motion going, or phase tech going. The armory does not have the sole purpose of giving ammo to marines. Consider that an added bonus.

                      You still need tha armory early to build the more advanced buildings. However I really don't like the jump in seige damage.

                        I like the increase in seige damage, considering they took out the splash damage in this build, making seiging with few seiges difficult (do to gorge healing).

                          Actually... its meant to keep players from humping and to save res from ammo drops :D (this is from the dev team).
