    Thumbs down Re: Natural Selection server upgraded to b5

    I guess I'm not meant to have it. I've tried from several different sources and shut down and restarted my computer. But still, when I try to download it doesn't move. I tried downloading a random file and it worked fine. Just with ns_install_v3_b5.exe does it not work. Hmm, .

    Yes it is. Check the downloads at natural-selection.org. Your server awaits.

    Re: Natural Selection server upgraded to b5

    Beta 5...

    Okay, so first off, in my trial runs on it, I was getting constant sticky-lag, kinda like a rubber band thing for the entire server....dunno if thats the patch, or a server issue yet.
    The new jetpack flight is very nice, and I don't mind the new sound.

    Bring back the 3.04 LMG sound...it was awesome.

    Shotgun...it like...shoots straight now. I was the master of the off-balance shotgun, and I want it back . Aside from that...I find the animation kind of distracting, and takes up more screen space, so its harder to plan multiple shots. Overall...no complaints, I can adapt.

    Welder - VERY nice work guys, love the features and all.

    Regen - I thought it was going to overflow into armor when health was maxed and there was additional regeneration points left?

    ns_eclipse - what happened? I was looking forward to the patch

    co_ulysses - very nice additions, and thanks for that ramp fix ><

    co_sevu or whatever it is...marine biased...needs an alien side makeover.

    ns_bast - due to the revolving door no longer in place, marines can reach engine hive far too quickly

    motion tracking fixes are very much appreciated.

    whats with bile bomb range? Its pretty crazy...didn't see it in the patchlog. could have just missed it though.

    Onos armor is very nice...much more balanced (with carapace).

    Overall...I think theres some critical things missing, and the new LMG sound certainly has to go away. Judging from the fact its a complete install, I'm assuming that this is still going to be the "official" 3.0 release? If it is...I would REALLY appreciate a 3.05a anyway. But no worries. good work team, keep it up.

    The good part is though, the aliens will be able to end it faster. I cant count how many times I have seen an Onos get owned by an LMG marine because of that door.

    Re: Natural Selection server upgraded to b5

    I think that the problem with double-nodes on that map was that it was too easily controlled by the marines. Typically, I like the idea of double-node areas on maps, as they give more strategic importance to certain areas on a map. I wish they could have found another way to balance the are on hera without removing the extra node.

    The player name NSPlayer is not allowed on the server. Change your name.
