    Decent Number of changes. Nice work.

    Haven't been around for the last 20 or so builds, but this one looks pretty good.

    YAY! What I'm wondering is whats Gorilla, when you said it in twitter I thought it was a nickname for the Onos but now it sounds like a Build...is it?

    Downloading right now. My first Patch/Build. So excited. Still 45 minutes to wait. And I have to work in 11 hours, but I don't care.

    @Charlie(Flayra): You created a damn addictive game.

    Gorilla is the new codename for the major patch that will add Mineshaft, JPs and Onoses. It's catchier and doesn't get changed by intermittent patches.

    Well done UWE and playtesters, another great patch. :)
    Like the moon, an enigma,
    Lost and alone in the night
    Damned by some heavenly stigma,
    But blazing with light!

    Is there something special you have to do to download the patch? The game is taking a very long while to load for me (other games work fine).

    Edit: Huh. Nevermind. No more issues!

    Awesome. But I didn't see "Whips can no longer attack as soon as the root button is pressed" in the changelog. Any word on this?
  • FlayraFlayra Game Director, Unknown Worlds Entertainment San Francisco Join Date: 2002-01-22 Member: 3Super Administrators, NS2 Developer, Subnautica Developer Posts: 6,934 admin
    OMG Steam hurry up.

    I keep updating the changelog as we figure out what else was added. Yep, the pistol fast-fire "exploit" was fixed.

    Yes, it's hard to believe I know! It's been a long time coming.

    downloading this right now, and yes its pretty large file.

    I really hope fps have improved, onos/jp can wait so long fps is better.

    And lets not forget I'm still looking forward seeing ns1 alien style movement in ns2...

    Gorilla? As in guerrilla warfare?

    Could we possibly be getting a map based on the planet of Kharaa with a terrain similar to the forests on Earth?

    Probably not though, I'll keep dreaming for an open map; but for now I'll enjoy these hallways.

    scoreboard ping will go down and eventually settle on what net_stats says, try net_stats in the console for an instant accurate ping

    OMG! 43%.... It is very slow! I have a terrible internet connection :(

    Edit:

    While I'm waiting, try to open the editor and is not available. It must be because ns2 is changing many files also the spark editor?

    Server performance has been pretty sketchy for me. Maybe I've had bad luck but the ones I go to always start stuttering/warping as they fill up.

    Played for 20 mins or so. Nice update, it definitely feels more responsive. The game is coming along nicely and with more polish it will be awesome.

    My main criticisms are two things which were fine before 189 but since then have changed for the worse.

    The first is sound. Before 189 the sound was generally fine but then it changed and now everything sounds like it's far away and faded. It's really annoying, I just wish you would change it back to the way it was before. I really dislike sounds being dampened when they are around the corner. It sounds very artificial and makes it very difficult to use sound to locate the position of the enemy. IMO the sound should simply fade at a distance the same as source games. I also dislike the sound being altered when you have low hp, but that's a minor complaint.


    The second thing is skulk movement. I feel like since the animation system change skulk movement has became worse. It feels like you are sliding around more and sometimes the movement gets jerky and control is taken away from you for a second or two when wallwalking and changing between surfaces. (Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6bGjvq_G_N0)

    Before the animation system change I thought the skulk was fine from a first person view, in fact I felt like it was one of the most responsive classes in the game. It was just the third person animations that were a bit weird. Now, the movement feels different and less responsive and the third person animations are still weird. I really think you should revert the skulk movement back to the way it was before and rework the third person animations completely (as I feel they are pretty important to get right as the skulk is the main alien class - it needs to look nice and smooth climbing the walls).


    [edit] My game also crashed twice and I had to restart, not sure if it's just my pc acting up or not though.

    That movement issue might has something to do with the newly implemented wall jumping system. You can gain speed/momentum by jumping and pushing off walls (the effect is less on the floor) as a Skulk.
