[ 4/13/04 ]:: Beta 4 release date

There is a new interview with Charlie "Flayra" Cleveland up on http://www.readyroom.org. It has some Q&A about the NS beta, the future of NS, and Unknown Worlds. Don't miss this! While you're there, check out the user-made Marine vs. Marine combat action, and their custom map bonanza.

We are hard at work on beta 4, and will be releasing it Friday, April 23rd. It will include map updates, HLTV fixes, balance changes and...the ns_bast remake! You can't even tell this isn't the real bast, except when you see your pings. It's going to be so great to have bast back! Thanks guys!

We will also be using this beta to start testing our unannounced new system (see previous news updates), so expect to hear more about that soon.

Finally, even though it should've been done a long time ago, we'd like to officially welcome Karl "XP-Cagey" Patrick to the NS team. He's been working too hard and far too competetently for too long for us to ignore any more. You'll see the fruits of his labors soon enough...

From the Front-Page.

New system... ooooooooh mysterious. Massive guesswork has already been done in the ns.org forums, so I'm not even going to start wondering here. We'll know in a few short days anyway.

No one has any idea what the new system is, not even the high ups. I would put some money on it being some kind of linked server system, something like the Battle for the Galaxy or whatever it was called. He hasn't released any changelog info either.

XP-Cagey is "The Official Keeper Of NS Mapping Guidelines (something like that)", so i'm guessing they've come up with a system too have two levels on the maps, and the Comm can cycle trough them. Longshot tough.

'twould be nice (and I daresay - not entirely too difficult) except for the brush number limitations already imposed by the engine itself.  Sure, I'm sure someone could program a "floor" toggle but the maps could not be any bigger or more complex.

I reckon that it's a scorekeeping system.  Like, experience, battle.net style.




Actually, that was a wild guess.  But it would be kind of cool anyhow  ^_^
