Is he talking about the Deep Shrooms, as in the Mushrooms found in the Blood Kelp Biome? It would be awesome if there was a blood-red coloured mushroom found in the red blood-grass plateaus... Blood Mushroom = Deep Shroom. In our development file system, most of the files associated with them are named some variant on "blood_mushroom".

If the Devs are still planning on an August Launch Date, then they are biting off more than they can chew. If they are planning for a more realistic Launch Date like November, then they still have plenty of time. We're aiming for August, but it's not set in stone. It's good to have a target to help keep focus even if that target eventually has to change.
@EachBurrito It looks like it's a combination of your AMD 8350 being a little slow & your 970 being bottle-necked by your CPU. NS2 relies heavily on single-threaded programming with lua, so a powerful CPU with faster speed is better than a CPU with slower but multiple cores. For instance, the Core i5 4460 (lower-end i5 from a couple years ago) vs FX 8350 Even though the FX 8350 is 4Ghz and has 8 real cores, the 4x core i5 4460 @ 3.2Ghz is actually faster by quite a significant margin due to it's architecture efficiency. Some ways to improve fps: * Lower your game resolution * Lower your graphics settings (including infestation) to reduce any possible CPU calculations * Close all non-essential programs while you are gaming (Web browsers like Google Chrome, Anti-Virus etc) * Play on servers with less than 24 players (less burden on your CPU due to move calculations) * Upgrade your system to an Intel i5 4XXX, 5XXX or 6XXX series (this will require a motherboard & possibly RAM change as well) Good luck
