    Woo!!
    Hate Steam, but love that were one step closer to playing the Alpha!
    Does this mean that the editor is now using the same engine as the game?
    Or have you just plugged up some differences?
    Either way WOO!

    You have to redownload, so remove your current installation.

    Are there any icon(s), backgrounds and that sort of thing coming soon for the Steam windows?
  • FortuneFortune Join Date: 2009-04-27 Member: 67290Posts: 223Members, Constellation
    Can't see the Spark SDK in the tools section, was it released on steam too?

    Really liking the ability to alt tab though.

    By the way - the latest version (with tools) isn't up on Steam quite yet. It's been sent off to Valve and they are very fast about it so I imagine it will update within the next few hours.

    Also, performance improvements are on the way!

    My sound is also broken

    The spark editor is in fact present - look in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\natural selection 2" or equivalent

    Great work guys, it's such a buzz to finally see something on steam!

    Could you also include rest of the models and animations so we can recreate ns1? The competitive community would appreciate it very much. ;)

    Do you guys have to involve valve in everyone of your updates (even small ones)? I was always curious how that worked.

    There are no sounds in the current version on Steam. Valve hasn't put up the latest yet (which fixes that), but we figured it was worth releasing anyway. The latest should be up before too long though.
