General / Some chatter about Onii

It certainly makes sense that the onos would be able to take frontal hits better, again, not like it will ever get implimented since not many people in the dev team bother listening to the 'peons' in the community. It is completely viable because it would allow onos to have a better chance when rushing and make them more team oriented since a fade could rush in and protect their retreat.

I mentioned in another topic that skill stacking was the worst problem (and possibly one of the only problems) that LM has. The thing is that when you complain about skill stacking it is rare that anyone says anything besides "quit your bitchin and play the game." Fact is that if you have 4 clan members and two regs versus a reg and 5 people new to the server you might as well be saying "quit your bitching and wait for us to kill you"

General / What Is With The Update Of Ns

I just want to state that I'm not really 'complaining' about it being late, just curious when its coming out. And to reply to the comment about delays and the like; the fact is that no matter how you slice it games will always be delayed from here to eternity, it started happening a decade ago as we know because before that there weren't release dates to follow, most people didn't even know what games were coming out but now its just that the entertainment industry has become fixated on creating buzz about anything that might become popular, hl2, unreal2, Doom3, homeworld2, avp, movies are just the same, if anyone followed the release of avp the movie it was also delayed and was almost delayed again just two weeks before the release. The lead show at mans(?) chineese thearter was cancelled at the last minute because they said they weren't ready with the FX but they still released it on time, too early in my opinion, even though I enjoyed the movie alright. Sky Captain was also supposed to come out a lot sooner than its now 'supposed' release date. I know that its expected to deal with delays on anything movie or game that might even just be hyped a lot and turn out to fizzle. I never expected to get the new NS release on time, but that doesn't mean I don't wanna know when its 'actually' going to come out. I'm sure most of us agree though; if you are unsure about the date don't say it at all...

If I didn't whore the houndeye as much as you did, I was a close second. I loved that time when we managed to make almost all players houndeyes.

exactly what mod are you talking about?

Off Topic / What Would You Want To See In Ns2
« on: August 16, 2004, 11:08:26 PM »
While it might be a pipe dream I really like thinking about all the possibilities for changes to NS if and when it is converted to HL2 into NS2 (unless of course, Flayra makes it a standalone, still the daydreaming applies). Here are a number of things I discussed with other NS players that I think would be really great in NS2.

- A third race: Now I've heard many varied races that might be possible, one of the favorites is Robots or Cyborgs for a third race. To make the game larger and more interesting the new race would come in with maybe three variations of the robot. Maybe stealth units with an attack that might do more damage from behind and maybe a pistol that can put things to sleep or the like. This unit would have its similairities to the marine jp and the alien fade, fast and stealthy. The medium unit would be what you basically start out as, instead of an lmg you might carry some kind of plasma rifle and i'm not sure what would be the secondary weapon, maybe just a punch. The third I haven't been able to work out in my head without it seeming to much like a heavy marine. There would of course be more upgrades for both the other races to deal with the robots just like they would have upgrades to deal with their respective foe. Maybe the aliens get an upgrade that does acidic damage to the robot or something. Maybe the rines get the ability to turn their welder into a gun and melt the robots parts. Another interesting possibility is a comm ability where once you upgrade for it you use energy to take control of robots, one at a time. Maybe through the obs.

- Another idea was of course, bringing more weapons into NS. Many people have disputed the validity of a flame thrower. In my personal opinion I think it would be a nice addition. I've heard numerous people argue the place of a sniper rifle, I honestly don't see how it's possible to put that into ns without the maps being significantly larger but maybe. I think the pistol is powerful enough.

Anyway, I'd like to hear what other people have to say about these ideas, and I'd like to hear new ideas too. Just to day dream basically cause I don't think that much is gonna change.

I keep going back to the the website expecting that Flayra has posted when he is going to bring out the next update to NS and I've yet to see any news about it. I'm sure someone probably has a link on hand to point directly to Flayra saying the exact day he plans on putting it out but I figured everyone was probably wondering. At this point it is starting to look like Flayra has been working on half-life too long, he's starting to get Sierra symptons. Delays and the like. I hope we don't have to wait a year like we have had to for HL2.

I hate getting icon stacked more than being kicked from the server especially when Its a bunch of new people or I happed to end up on a rine team with a comm that has never commed before and Holy and Bob are on the aliens team. I don't even wanna play but I stick through and hope we lose quickly.

-- Celerity skulks are better than any defense upgraded skulks but when you happen to not get any chambers until you get a fade you might as well drop dcs because everyone knows regen or cara fades are significantly more powerful than celer fades. This seems to happen a lot more often too, people have gotten really lazy with dropping things, reswhoring is like a fad nowadays...
