    Beta 6 Build 3

    Changelog:
    O Changed structure build restriction radius from 60 to 30 units (Means that you can now drop multiple structures within viewing range of each other.).
    O Changed player build restriction radius from 25 to 16.50 units (Should reduce the amount of marines-standing-in-the-way to the bare minimum, makes medpack- and ammodropping easier.).
    O Changed Scan cost from 25 to 20 energy units.
    O Scan exploit fix improved.
    O Fixed a bug where a hive could not be dropped over a chamber.
    O Team join sounds now only play for the team joined.
    O Fixed bug where resupply wasn't effective for HMG or pistol. A resupplied weapon will never reload to less than a full clip.
    O Added all-new hivehealth indicators for the alien HUD. We had a so far unduplicable issue with this in an early test, please report irregularities in the forums.
    O Replaced the old parasited structure sprite (thanks, gazz0zz!).
    O Changed default combat game time to 15 minutes.

    O Updated co_core. It now actually has a RR.
    O Updated ns_eon
    - Lowered Marine Start roof considerably, and added a cc alcove.
    - Small aesthetic changes to N-Turn.
    - Centre console in Core Monitoring to reduce line of sight.
    - Vents rearranged in Core Monitoring to help aliens and a new vent added.
    - Vent in Core Power moved as part of the vent rearrangement.
    - New space added to Engineering Hive to increase space for spawn points and add more cover,
    and just make it cooler.
    - Other minor adjustments to Engineering Hive.
    - Removed vent doors from Bridge Hive, while blocking line of sight to hive created by their removal.
    - Increased usefulness of bridge vents (one exits from the cieling, the other is higher),
    and removed stickiness on one vent exit.
    - Decreased Bridge Hive vent weld time from 60 seconds to 20 seconds.
    - Increased lift speed from 70 to 90.
    - Fixed onos stuck issue at Core Monitoring.
    O Updated ns_altair
    - Moved Parts Room RT to Sigma Test Site
    - Added new info_locations to help navigation and direction
    - Split up Life Support info_location
    - Split up Sub Bay info_location
    - Removed weldable door
    - Reopened path between Sub Bay and Parts Room
    - Moved some alien spawns into Life Support instead of being a bit outside the hive room
    Nothing too interesting here. The hive health indicators should be very useful though and the new structure parasite sprite is much better. Say goodbye to the #1 co_ ready room though

    This may be frowned upon, but I was thinking that we could play the new maps for beta 6 on the TG server... there is no NDA, but the NS team may not like the map files floating around on non test servers.

    Pardon me for being out of the loop --- are non Consties still playing beta5? or some version of 6? I want to know if it's time to come back or not

    beta5 for non-consties.

    Good time to come back.

    I haven't checked the forums, but I can tell you that the latest version of b6 (this is the third release of b6) still has some pretty serious bugs. The other day I was playing somewhere and we could not drop the third hive and there was no error message. Apparently this is a reproducible bug.

    Anyway Black_V!per, I'm sure you'd rather be patient and get a more stable b6 than be stuck with something with huge bugs. On the other hand if you want to try out your hand at testing the latest build, becoming a constie is really quite cheap.

    Some consti tests have lasted only a few hours while the original consti test lasted a very long time. So there really isnt a norm.

    I have the NS installed. Played for about 30min this evening. I am ruined as an NS player. Will take me days to get back in shape :P
